HELP!

Ok, Moms...or anyone else who might have a good idea...

I need help! I swear, Abby is trying to kill these babies!! How do I get her to chill out and back off?? I mean, really - how many times should I have to tell a 3 yr old that LAYING ON TOP of the babies is not a good idea?!? Ugh....

We love Sundays!

Now that Zac isn't working on Sundays (WOO HOO!!) we can get back to our preferred Sunday routine, which is family-centered and kind of lazy. For Sunday meals, I usually either Crock-Pot (tradition from my dad) or do something fun. Today, Abby announced that she wanted pancakes for dinner. So she helped me make pancakes while Zac cleaned up the house a little and entertained the babies.

When we sat down for dinner, he put the babies on their play mat (on their backs). When we were almost done with dinner, I looked up and saw Cami up on her side. I yelped and all three of us ran to watch her roll over!!!! She's been trying for awhile now and finally did it!


Trying to get that stinkin' arm out of the way!!


Still trying....


Success!!!


And this is what Emma thought of the whole thing - LOL!


One of my goals with all of my kids has always been to not compare them. Even more so now that we have twins. Emma is a more relaxed baby than Cami - if she needs to be moved, I guess she figures someone will move her. :) Cami is ready to take on the world and go, go, go!! They're both healthy, happy and on par....perfect little additions to our crazy family!

GIVEAWAY

I love free stuff! Marcy over at Stretching a Buck is giving away Huggies diapers!! I know a lot of my readers could definitely use free diapers, so head over there and enter. If you don't have babies, you can still enter....I'm sure you could find someone to give them to. (Me, Me!) LOL

Chicken Fried

If you aren't familiar with country music, then you may not have heard the Zac Brown Band's song Chicken Fried. It's a great song - especially for we Southerners that are living in Utah. :) Well, we now have a new Elliott version.

Zac likes to re-work songs to make them more appropriate for our lifestyle (e.g. replacing "beer" with "root beer"). Monday night was grocery shopping night and, this week, included stops at 3 stores. At our last stop, I just ran in (great chicken sale!) and came back out to Zac & Abby announcing that they'd made up a new song. Check out my family's creativity! :)

WHOA!!!

So, this morning I put the babies on their play mat kinda like this:





Then I went downstairs to check e-mail, blogs, etc while Zac was eating breakfast and such. When I came back up about 30-45 min later, I found them like this:





Oh my goodness!! Emma scooted over and Cami was starting to rotate!! They grow up too fast!!

Blogging...

Since I'm not always good at blogging (between three kids and the wonders of Facebook, I just don't manage much these days...) I'm thinking I'm going to find motivation in NaBloPoMo. We'll see if I can make it for the whole month! :)
