This weekend was an absolute blast! Seriously!
First off, The Mister only gets 1 Saturday off a month... and since Sundays are full of church items... that is the only day a month we have to sleep in and just hang out as a family with NOTHING to do. Needless to say... that 1 saturday is G.O.L.D. And this past saturday was amazing.
We "slept in" and by slept in I mean we tended to our babies and then the four of us all played in bed. So actually... no, we didn't sleep at all... but we were all in bed chilling together as a family. Which was awesome.
Be still my heart. I love these three.
I guess you start to take some things for granted until they're taken away... ie. lazy saturdays. Anyways, we were having a grand time... and the next thing you know... we were texting with my in-laws and the Mister and I decided to take a last minute trip out to the Salmon Homestead. So we fed the babies, packed up a billion items for the kiddos, hopped in the mini
cooper van (cooper would've been so much cooler... I know), & rolled out towards the coast.
It really was such a fun weekend. A few key things to note about this trip other than it was overall an awesome time.
(1) The babies not only got to see their grandparents, but their great grands too! Special memories.
(2) They learned how to roll over (They being the babies... not the grands).
That's right folks... Baby girls can roll over. For any of yall who had babies who kept flipping over in their sleep WAILING and thus waking you up at all hours of the night... you know how big of a deal this is. This has been a LOOOOONG time coming. And what's even more exciting. I got both flips on video. Now... I would post them online for you to enjoy but (a) the girls are naked... and I feel like naked baby videos on the world wide web could attract some sketch attention & not to mention the girls MIGHT kill me when their older (so I'll skip the video and just post this adorable picture of their bums below instead), AND (b) let's be honest, no one else is really amused by a video of our girls flipping over other than me, The Mister, and a few of our family members. It is enough to say that they flipped over... and we were thrilled.
But here is the cool thing to note... they BOTH learned how to flip over within just a few minutes of each other. Weird right? I've heard that a lot of twins conquer these milestones around the same time (like within the same week/month), but I just think they're weirdos for doing EVERYTHING together within minutes of each other. It's super cute. I hope they keep it up with some of their other milestones!
(3) My PIL makes the best lattes ever.
(4) We mixed up the girls TWICE.
Truth. It's not something I'm proud of, but it's true. :) In fact, on the video of Noel flipping over we're calling her Felicity the whole time. It's awesome. We didn't realize it til afterwards. Then the next day, I did it again! I handed MIL a baby and told her the wrong name. We held the girls for about 45 minutes til I looked down at my baby and said, "Wait a second, you have Felicity. I have Noel!" Sigh... I'm sure it won't be the last time!
Alright yall, I hope you all had wonderful weekends!
