Hoo Hoo Hoo Hoosiers!

My best friend Jorie came to help with the babies last week for a couple of days and we had the best time (We met at Indiana University). Jorie was a huge help with feedings and she changed lots of diapers! Friday morning, I asked Auntie Jorie to dress Max and Tessa and as you can see above, she wanted them to show their IU pride. I think they look pretty comfortable in their IU gear.

Max and Tessa also loved meeting Jorie's girl's Emme and Delanie. The girls did an excellent job with the babies holding them and feeding them. It was so fun to see the girls so excited about the babies.

Jorie and I also got a well deserved night out on the town while Duke watched the babies. I have to say, that wine tasted pretty good after not drinking for close to a year. I probably had one too many!

Thanks for coming to help was a blast!

Say Cheese!

My parents gave us an early Christmas present when they scheduled a photo shoot for Max and Tessa and my brother's kids, Grayson and Lily. The kids did great at the photo shoot and here are some of the really good ones and some of the really funny ones.

Yinz go dantan n watch the stillers play

I didn't go dantan n watch the stillers play, but I have had a wonderful time in the burgh for the last week. We came to Pittsburgh last thursday for a baby shower my mom and sister-in-law hosted for us. The shower was fabulous. All the decorations were beautiful, the food was excellent and I was able to visit with so many friends and family that I don't get to see that often.

Duke headed back to Chicago and I stayed with the babies for the week. It has been great. My mom and dad are spoiling the babies and best of all, I am getting lots of much needed help and sleep! The babies have been great. They have been smiling a lot. They are starting to get a little more fussy, but grandma sassy knows just how to calm them down.

As much as I have enjoyed my time in Pittsburgh, I really can't wait to get home tomorrow to see Duke. I know he misses the babies a lot and he won't believe how much they have changed in just a week.

Here are some pics from the trip.
