Weekends Lately

Life with babies is like the movie Groundhog's Day.  It's the same routines again, and again, and again.  Feed, pump, clean something, feed, pump, exercise, feed, pump, cook dinner, feed, pump, and so it continues... Don't get me wrong, I'm loving every minute of being a mommy, but I definitely can remember the days of "Hey, let's go to happy hour!" and it's strange to think that they are long gone.  Instead, we sip our drinks sparingly between diaper changes, bottles, and soothing our little ones' cries.  

Another thing that's drastically changed around here is my getting up and at 'em so early in the morning.  I used to be that girl who got to the gym and the grocery store all before my husband even got out of bed.  Not anymore.  Now our weekend mornings include a lot of snuggling and laying around, and I can't say I hate it either.  This week we watched Winnie the Pooh and Robin Hood, I mean, the girls watched Winnie the Pooh and Robin Hood, while we stayed wrapped together in blankets and drank an entire pot of coffee before starting our day.  
Excuse our my bed head.  We really just woke up!  

Also, newborn babies mean you're going to have a lot of visitors, and because of that I was able to float in my pool for hours undisturbed while the rest of my family doted on the babes.  I'm sorry to say this is the FIRST time I have done that this season, but between my recovery and just trying to keep them out of the heat and sun, it wasn't exactly a good summer for me and my tan.  

All of the fam who came to visit from the Burgh!  

Me time.  Yesssssss.

Our first family photo!  Yea I know it's almost 3 months late!

So here it's Monday and I'm doing the usual laundry loads and picking things up in between babies' care times, this time in preparation for my husband's softball tournament and our "vacation" at Grandma's house.  He'll be in Florida from Wednesday to Sunday so us girls are going to spend some time with Granny, and meet their first cat!  I can't believe I am calling this vacation, but it's the closest I am getting to one this year and I can hardly wait!  

Let it Shine
