summer fun

Playing dress-up with baby twin girls. They are like little dolls. The head bands are still a little on the large side, but we had fun anyway.

One day all the neighbors were over and played in the water, it was super fun summer time joy!

Here's Ellie and the neighbor Will. Don't they look so cute sun-bathing.

On our first outing with the stroller and the baby sisters, Ellie felt left out, so she squeezed in between the babies. How cute is that?

Here's an awesome shot of my grandma feet. They stayed like this for about a week then slowly went down and were pretty much back to normal after 11 days.

Our stroller came in a big box of popcorn styrofoams which Missy, Mandy, and Ellie played in and then proceeded to make a mess in the yard with. Fun!

At home with twins!

Well, life is indeed crazy. I never imagined the kind of time it would take to try to feed these little ones. I feel like a cow, but it will get better. Dan is truly amazing. He's turned very domestic. He does all the laundry, dishes, diapers, baths, Ellie to bed. He never sits down, even when he has a chance, he's tidy-ing up the house. He actually gets restless like me now if he is sitting. I can't believe how completely he has stepped up to the plate. Last night when I was so tired I couldn't see straight, he burped and bathed the babies after I fed them, put them to bed, cleaned the house - including vacuuming, bathed and put Ellie to bed, and still managed to check on me, bring me pain pills and make sure I was okay. I just have to brag about my wonderful thoughtful amazing husband for a bit. I love him more and more each day. I am so lucky to have a partner like him in all of this.
