Still here


Wanna know a secret? Twins rock. Hanging out with these two babies is way more fun than blogging, hence my very long absence from blogland. I've had the joy of staying home with the babies for the past few weeks, while Elizabeth has been going to work. Since my maternity leave will be ending far too soon, I've been soaking up this time with my son and daughter. Being on the computer or watching TV feels like too much of a drain on my time with them. Occasionally when they're both sleeping, I'll try to go through my blogroll and catch up, but it rarely works. I'll comment on one or two blogs, and then get pulled away housework or the poor neglected dogs. Since Elizabeth is at work, the prime spot for procrastination and avoiding work, she keeps me filled in on everything. I've been cheering from the sidelines for anyone who has gotten pregnant, stayed pregnant, had babies, or just kept plugging along in the TTC game.

My babies are so friggin awesome. I swear, they're the easiest babies in the world. They have been pretty consistent for the past few weeks about eating every 4 hours. They aren't sleeping through the night yet, but are only up once. They're completely different people- our daughter (Butterbean) is the quieter of the two, a very content and focused baby. She's perfectly content to sit still and listen to a story. Our son is the active, smiley, flirty type and he talks CONSTANTLY. I swear, when we were eating lunch today he said "mayhem" very clearly. Elizabeth and I both heard it.

I'm just having so much fun with them. So here's a few pictures for anyone who might still be reading this blog. I'll probably start posting more when I return to work in a few weeks. :(

I'm so guilty of skipping down to the bottom to see pictures! Such cuties!!
I hear you on feeling like blogging is taking time away. If it wasn't for my iPhone I'd be completely MIA.

I'm amazed at how big they have gotten!!! Seems like they were born just yesterday!!! They are too cute in their outfits for the party. Understandable that you want to spend every moment enjoying being a mom to your little ones. Thanx for updating us!!

They are beautiful! Look how big they are now! Mine are finally at the smiley fun age now too, just in time to go back to work :(

Glad you are doing so well!

PS - My girl is fair and my boy a little olive and dark too. Glad to see they aren't the only ones! We though maybe our RE pulled a fast one on us ;)LOL

They are SO CUTE! Enjoy all your time with them and you can return to regular blogging once you have "work" to do. It's really the best time for it. :)
