That WE are 3? Where did time go? Where did my babies go? Insert sad face here. My little girls are growing up, it's so sad. I remember when the girls were first home from the NICU and Matt was home with me for 2 weeks, one day we were out driving to get something to eat and a quick run in to Babies R Us to get something, and I commented to Matt that I couldn't wait until they were older, envisioning all the fun times we were going to have. He on the other hand said, slow down, let's enjoy them as babies. Shortly after that Darius Rucker's It Won't be Like this for Long came out, and I totally thought back to that conversation. In fact, every time I hear that song, I think back to that conversation and all the long nights of no sleep, and now that those are so far behind, I actually, really, really miss them. I totally get how our parents "miss their babies"...I miss my babies already, and they are ONLY 3. Seems like so little to some, but to me it's so big. The girls are always telling me that they are BIG girls now, and I say, "No, you are MY babies, Mommy's Babies...won't you cuddle/rocky-rocky with me/Snuggle (or any other sort of thing)"...and they typically do, but I know that those days are limited. Poor Mommy. I live for Saturday morning/Sunday morning cuddles (or right now, just summertime cuddles), and, I know from watching my cousin with her 10 and 5 year old that those days are limited for me....but for now, I'm going to milk them for ALL their worth. :)
Anyways, shockingly enough, the girls turned 3 on Sunday, July 10th and we had a Great Great Day! We had the girls pick what they wanted to do...first on the menu, eating out for breakfast and Dinosaur Pancakes (we are super big dinosaur fans these days, and they love this restaurant by our house that makes pancakes in the shape of a triceratops), then we went to the Museum...you know, the one we went to over Easter..the City Museum. They ADORE that place, I'm thinkin' we may be getting a membership soon! :) Then we came home for Naptime and a late lunch and had ice cream for dinner! :) Just what every THREE year old needs! Here are our bazillion pictures from that day! :)
Here we are at the SunnyDay Cafe...eating Breakfast!
Olivia has a tendancy to get over 'Scary' things faster...here she is at the TOP of the slide smiling for the camera...
It was a fun, exhausting day....but do they REALLY have to be 3???
Hope all is well,
PS...no one got sick from the pit of germs or sponge pit! YAY! Go immune systems go! :)
