Welcome Charlie!

Our good friends Brian and Nicole Wells welcomed their beautiful baby boy Charles Anthony Wells on Valentines Day, much earlier than his parents expected. But, little Charlie quickly showed his Mom and Dad what a champ he is and began thriving and growing from day one. Charlie is now at home with Nicole and Brian and we can't wait to meet him. Max and Tessa can't wait for a play date:) Congratulations Wells family!

I give it a 10!

Both babies were displaying new skills yesterday. Tessa found out the she loves to climb all over the playmat. I think she's going to be a gymnast. She nailed the landing!

Mr. Clean

Yesterday I put Tessa in her frog chair and Max in his bumbo chair in the living room while I was cleaning up the kitchen. Max had his back to me and was a bit hidden by our chair but I could see his head. I thought he was being unusually quiet, but I didn't want to disturb that nice moment of quiet so I kept cleaning. After a few more minutes of quiet I peeked over and couldn't see his head. So, I walked over into the living room to find this! Max was leaning over his chair to pull out ALL the wipes in the diaper wipe box. He was VERY proud of himself!

We went on vacation with twins and...survived to tell the story!

We are back from Florida. I've decided not to call our trip a vacation. It was a learning experience. We learned a lot about traveling with twins! It was wonderful to see all of our family and enjoy some nice weather and give the babies a taste of pool time. However, poor Max and Tessa were under the weather with bad colds the whole time we were there. On a positive note, they did great on the plane.

I almost wish we could have stayed another week. It wasn't until the end of the trip that we started to feel like we had everything under control, got a good schedule going and the babies started to feel a bit better. Oh well, there's always next year!

Here are some pics and a slide show is below. As you can see, we still managed to have a good time and the babies still manage to look like the cutest things in the world even when they are sick. They are such a joy!

Celebrating Babies

Right before we went on vacation, we hosted a joint couples baby shower for our dear friends the Wells' and the Beaumont's. Nicole and Brian Wells welcomed their beautiful little boy, Charlie, into the world quite a bit early. Nicole delivered Charlie on Valentine's Day and he is doing just great! He's growing and getting stronger every day.

Jenny and John Beaumont are expecting identical twin girls in May. I still can not believe Jenny is having twins! Our good friends the Edison's were at the shower and they are also expecting twins! How did I luck out and have two close friends expecting twins??? I am selfishly so excited to be able to share the twin experience with them!!

This was actually the first time we've had our whole group of friends together in quite some time. The only person missing from this group was Spencer Singer who could not make it. After it was all over, I realized we didn't get a big group pic of everyone...kind of bummed about that. Anyway, here are a few pics.

It was a great afternoon celebrating the babies and catching up with wonderful friends. We can't wait to meet Charlie in person and we can't wait for the Edison and Beaumont twins to make their way into the world.
