Since we last wrote, we now have a new president elect...Mr. Barak Obama. HOPEFULLY he will be able to make some positive changes in the US and help our image abroad. I have to say as a counselor and teacher I am so happy that we finally have our first African American president. This is HUGE for my kids, now instead of just wanting to be a rapper, basketball or football player, my kids will realize that they too have the ability to become president someday...should they want that. NEAT. Now we just need to get some more women in DC...preferably some on the Supreme Court, I was rather upset when Bush didn't replace Sandra Day O'Conner with another women, so Barak, hear me now...we need some more women on the supreme court, when some of those old fuddy duddies retire...you know who they are! :)
Okay..off the political soap box...back to babies, the point of this blog! Since our RSV shots on Monday we've been on a hunger strike. Apparently we don't feel well since our shots and eating is NOT our favorite thing, which makes Mommy unhappy because I need them to gain more weight and FAST...I want 10 pounders by THanksgiving if possible. :) Poor Olivia is so congested from her shot, it's pitiful. Sadly Matt took out our humidifyer to plug it in and found out that the darned thing had been USED and returned and resold to us. I am NOT HAPPY about this. We're exchanging it tomorrow come heck or high water. Hopefully this congestion goes away soon. :(
The girls are starting to interact more and more, it's cute. THey laugh, smile, cry real tears (esp. when getting their boogers sucked...that's a tragedy of GRAND proportions in our house), and are starting to play more and more. My favorite game is who is the baby in the mirror. THey look so confused when they see that baby! :)
The Boxers continue to love on their babies...bath time is a family event with the BOxers helping as well...it's cute. We have bath time every night now, to get the girls used to a bedtime routine, which is really helping. Shockingly enough they now sleep at least 6 hours a night...which is cool, but sometimes I wonder if we shouldn't still be waking them up to eat in the middle of the night. But, our pediatrician says no, so she's the expert!
As a side note...I had to break in the middle of the blog to feed a baby....so here's the footnote from what happened during/after that!
So, tonight I had my first emergency trip out for something for the girls....I ran to Walmart to get a cheap vaporizer for the girl's room...until we can get our humidyfier we need something for Livi...she's a mess. Poor kid...it sucked to run out, and it MORE than reminded me how scary our Walmart can get 'after hours' so to speak. I swear the man in line in front of me (who practically told me his whole life story) was on something good...or he's just a freak...or both.
Well, that's really all that is going on...here are some pictures of the girls from their GrandDude's birthday.....GrandDude was a sailor...so we wore our Sailor suits for his birthday! :)
Olivia and Sugar...
Sydney and Cassius....
Hope all is well!
