Happy Birthday.. I'm old..

You know, when people used to say to me, "Man you don't look your age" my response would always be, "That's because I don't have any kids".. lol.. Well I guess that's over now isn't it, since My over achieving self chooses to have two kids at a time! But.. I did have a good birthday. It was uneventful.. but who are we kidding.. when I get to go out to eat that is now and 'event' because we are hoping/praying the girls don't start hollering, or rebelling..

Lately they have been pretty great though.. I'm realizing that as I talk to other people, I have REALLY good babies.. But, there are still two of them, so there's that.. They are actually pretty easy most of the time. They are to the age when they can be entertained by themselves for quite a bit.. If you put them in their bumbo seats with their play trays, they will play with toys for a good 45 minutes by themselves.. They have also started to notice each other, which is super cute.. they look at each other and smile as if to say, "Well hey! I know you..".. then they watch each other play with toys.. Or rather, Crosslee plays with Toys and Londyn likes to watch her play with them, lol..

Lapoppins has been taking them all around.. This week they went to the library for Mother Goose reading time.. Then they had a play date with some other twins.. then they went to Gymboree and did a baby class.. I know what you are saying.. "KC, they are 4 months old, what are they learning?".. Well hell, who knows, but I think its good that they are out, and socializing, and working on their sensory exercises.. They do little dances and exercises, and I think that's good for them too.. and Oh yeah, How amazing is my nanny that she will actually be willing to TAKE them?? LOVE HER. THE BEST. Seriously.. She was so sweet this week and went and got my Nothing Bundt Cakes from the girls.. I'd offer to share them with you, but yeah, they are already gone. thanks. Yum.

So go ahead.. make fun of me.. But yeah, I was one of those fools on the internet at 2am on Friday morning ordering my new iphone.. in GOLD no less.. Boom. My phone has NO memory and its beyond annoying.. Especially since I take like 325 pictures of the girls and have 7000 songs.. So I upgraded to the big dog.. the GOLD, 64, Phone.. Sad however that it doesn't come in till October, so I'll have to wait a bit for that magic. That's actually what my present was from my mom.. LOVE that. Plus, she is coming up here today to hang out with the girls while MJ and I go buy groceries.. You laugh, but you try taking two adorable bow-headed babies into the grocery store and see how much shopping YOU get done... "OH MY GAWWWW are they TWINS!! Can I see Them!!".. Yeah, it goes on and on, so we'd rather just go alone..

From my dad, he and Joni volunteered to come up and watch the girls for MJ and I yesterday.. Can you say "Best gift ever?".. Yeah. pretty much.. SO we got to run around.. eat at Mama E's.. do some shopping and just enjoy our time while the girlies enjoyed their time with Grammy J and Pops.. Beautiful day yesterday too.. We thought about going to the fair, but man, we only go to eat, and it ends up being a REALLY expensive meal by the time you pay to get in, and grab your giant corn dog and turkey leg.. I also ran into a Cow at the mall.. Had to take a pic of that.. Of course MJ loves it when I race to take pictures with giant walking around animals in public places.. What can I say, that's what I do.. Your welcome.

So yeah, my tongue is numb. Why? Who knows. I'm weird.. The last time I got some dental work done (PS, I never have ANY dental work done without getting my mouth numb) it didn't come back from the numb-ness.. I asked Dr. Cox what this is called, being that I was calling it "Dead Tongue".. turns out its called Lingual Parethesia.. It will come back, it can just take a bit.. Its an odd feeling, and like 1% of people get it..which is pretty typical for me.. to be the ONE person who has a dead tongue. At least I'm not talking with a lisp.. yet.. Or slobbering on myself.. YET..

ON top of this, My right foot has kinda quit working.. It was very painful to walk, so I went to visit Dr. Flynn who gave me a giant shot of cortisone in my heel.. Did that hurt? Yes, Yes it did..but is my foot better? Yes, yes it is.. However, I can't go barefoot anymore, which for me is a ruiner.. Call me a hillbilly but I hate shoes..

The girls have been doing better in the nursery.. 3 weeks and not kicked out! We even went to small group on Wednesday and they did good during that time too. Have I told you how much I love our small group and church? Yeah, I know I have.. but seriously, I just love it. Now we have a great small group we are so proud to be a part of.. We hang out with people our own age that have kids and are married and we get to share our love for God.. Its pretty well the greatest thing ever. Plus we have the best Sunday School teachers ever with Laura & Terry.. Truly blessed on that aspect..Really in all aspects.. So yeah, I may start looking old now, but I have a great life, so I'll take it!

What does the Fox Say

Well I have officially become obsessed with "What does the Fox Say".. its ridiculous, and it gets stuck in my head.. and when people ask me questions I find myself compelled to say "What does the Fox say?" in a serious tone, which in turn makes them think I'm bizarre.. So there you have it. If you haven't heard it yet, here you go.. You're Welcome..

So the girls are good. I can safely say that we like them much more now at 3 months.. they are really becoming fun. Crosslee is a mess. She makes me laugh with her ornery smile. If she is sitting in her bouncer and you reach down to get her, she immediately starts smiling and laughing like 'Ha ha! I won, you are picking me up!".. And then Londyn.. Sweet sweet girl.. When she wakes up in the morning and see's your face she immediately smiles and turns her face to the left like she is being bashful.. but its so cute. She and Cross are starting to notice each other more now and kinda stare at each other like "Hey.. You look familiar".. lol..

Crosslee is getting close to rolling over. She turns all the way on her side. Londyn is not really interested in that right now, but they both still love being in the water, and love to kick their feet in the big bathtub. They can hold their heads up now, so they aren't all weird and bobbly anymore, which is nice. I went to the Just between Friends sale the other day and got some fabulous stuff!! Yes, I'm still cloth diapering.. My nanny is amazing, and has been a huge help. I know, go ahead and laugh, but its actually going really well.. those diapers are SO cute. These are some of my fav's.. they are called Daddy's diapers.. LOVE the ruffle butts! I mean seriously.. we've come a long way from clothes pins.. these are Adorable.. I also love the bum genius ones, the fuzzibunz, and the thirsties.. If you want to know more about them, the folks at the Green Bambino are legit.. Call them.

The dog babes are good too.. except for Sawyer crying when the babies cry. ANNOYING. I love that puffed guy, but when I already have a baby crying, I don't need a shih-tzu to add to the mix. And he cries like you have cut off his paw.. He hangs his head and makes sad cry sounds until the baby quits crying. He mostly does it when Londyn cries, but sometimes when Cross does.. Then he gets Payslee crying and its a freakin madhouse.. so I'm trying to train him to stop doing that. Cross successfully stayed in the nursery last week! She didn't get kicked out.. I think I made it a challegnge for the nursery workers by saying "Well.. this one has been thrown outta here before" because the lady was like "What? Not this Baby.. Not on my watch".. like it was some sort of right of passage.. So she stayed there, and when I came to get her she was happily sitting in someone's lap. So Score! This means we get to go back to Sunday School again! I mean Crosslee really kinda has to kick it up a notch at church.. You can't be rude in a church that you were named after. I told her this. We'll see if she continues to comply.

So.. the other night I had a dream that I was watching over this sanctuary place and when I went to look in a river there were two giant crocodiles.. Like as big as dinosaurs.. and I said "Um, does anyone realize there are giant crocodiles outside?" and they said.. yeah.. LIke it was normal..Then I went back out there and there was a T-Rex waiting for me.. What the heck.. Then my dream jumped to me hanging out with these two guys that were dating and one was mad at the other.. So he took him to the lake, and little did the other guy know that the one guy had dug out a hole in the lake and put a cage in the water.. so when he swam over to it the guy threw a stuffed elephant into the water and it pulled him into a cage.. Then the guy says "You are going to die while listening to the sounds of dolphins being slaughtered".. Um ok. Anyone have any ideas on what THAT dream might mean???!?! I mean geez! And no, I didn't drink, or eat ham before I went to bed.. I mean really, who dreams stuff like that.. I'm so weird.

We had a good time at the farm a few weeks ago. We took the girls out there to visit my family and they love farm time with GG (My mom) and Papa (Steve), Grammy J (Joni) and Pops (Kirby).. Since Cross has pretty much quit raging life is much better. She still loves sitting outside.. She also loves to squeal in delight now. She will do it while just walking around with you.. just squealing. Londyn loves to talk. If you sit her in the bumbo seat and chat with her she likes to babble back. The enjoyed their farm time fun! They also got to see Cousin Ava, and Uncle Grant and Aunt Jenny.. They were in town so we all got to hang out. Its going to be so cool at Christmas because there will be 4 grand-kids that are all within 8 months of each other. Ava and Joe will be walking, and Cross will be crawling.. So much fun!
