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!
