Spring is here! Gorgeous just-because flowers from the husband.  I never knew daffodils smelled good!  Aren't these beautiful?!

Bath time = FUN time!

Maddie and Sophie's 1st bath at 2 weeks old in the Puj tub.  They were SO tiny!  We had to wait until their umbilical cord scabs fell off before giving them a real bath.  I was too nervous to bathe them.  I made the husband do it.

Eeee...I love that first photo of Maddie.  She really enjoyed her 1st bath after the initial shock of being in the water. Look at that face!  I love how her hair gets all fluffy and fuzzy after it's washed. Hehe.  Both of the girls LOVE bath time with Daddy.  They splash their arms and legs like crazy!

Maddie at about 11 weeks.  I just wanna eat all her fat rolls!

Sophie at 11 weeks.  Splishing and splashing in the tub.

Right now I'm...

listening to
the baby monitor as the girls sleep and the ocean waves on the white noise app.

this new free time I'm having right now.  the girls are BOTH sleeping and it's 10pm?  whaaat??

amazingly moist muffins from my new favorite grocery store, mariano's.

tropicana orange juice with extra pulp...b/c extra pulp makes it taste extra fresh.

photos onto Facebook from ages ago.

cupcake toppers for a friend's party.

I'm loving this stress-free approach to giving an update.  Especially since I'm short on free time, this is great!  I got the idea from here and she got the idea from here.

A Long Overdue Update :: Meet M + S!

The past few months have been a blur.  I gave birth to my twin girls on December 10th.  They arrived a wee bit early at 35 weeks old.  Maddie was 4lbs 4oz and Sophie was 3lbs 12oz.  Both were tiny, but healthy.  Here are just a few pictures from my baby shower from back in late October and a few of the girls.  Many more pics of the girls to come!  You can imagine how many we have!  :)

The lovely Sarah hosted the shower at my house and made these 
scrumptious cupcakes and all the decorations.

 Our first photo as a family of four...with me still on the operating table.

 Our hospital provided a professional photography shoot for all 
newborns.  Here are a few of the poses the photographer put them in.
