Dear Adoring Fans, I'm sorry I have neglected my blog for a few days. I had company, therefore, live people to run my crazy antics past. I'm back. (Heeheehee, I know I'm full of it.)
Jinx. This is a real thing. As in, ah crap, shouldn't have said that, I jinxed it! This last weekend my Aunt Jan, cousin Lori and baby Zadie came to play. We had a great time! The girls "played" together - my girls laid there, and Zadie tolerated them, we went shopping and found Easter dresses for all, cooked and ate and laughed and talked. It was wonderful. BUT, I learned that you can definitely jinx something. Example: Me: Oh no, I never have to rock the girls to sleep for their naps. I just put them down and they fall to sleep on their own. JINX!!!!!!!!!!! Example #2: Me: We can be gone as long as we want. The girls do great out shopping, they can nap anywhere. JINX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It was astounding how many times my little pumpkins made a liar out of me! I might have learned the lesson, probably not.
We did have fun though and again, I am reminded how blessed I am to actually like/enjoy/choose to be friends with my family. They're pretty much awesome. Maybe they're just the same kind of weird I am and I recognize something familiar. Whatever the reason, I again hope my girls become good friends with their cousins.
On a totally different subject, we started solids tonight. I have been dreading this for a month. Yes, there is some hope that they might sleep longer, and that would be huge. Also, it is fun when each new milestone gets here. BUT, our evenings have become a well-oiled machine, and I just didn't know how we would work in the eating thing!! Tonight, though, it worked out great. I waited until Dan got home (man to man is the only way to go!), and I think some of the food actually got swallowed?!? It took quite a little while to get through the thimble serving size and clean up was a disaster, but it was kinda cute. Maybe I won't actually nurse them until grade school! ;-)
Missed ya'll. I have many blogs floating around in my little pea brain...we'll see if I actually get them on "paper" this week!
