I dont know how people find time to keep up with Facebook, Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, Blogging, and any other websites that require so much attention!  I have focused my attention elsewhere the past couple of months.  Mainly trying to determine the different cries of my two daughters and run through my list of needs to help them; thus, leaving my blog in the dust.
But a rare moment of peace has found me this morning while they both nap AT THE SAME TIME!  And since my blog still says Im pregnant, I should admit that I did not have a 15 month pregnancy.  They are here, safe and sound.  After SOOOO many scares and being admitted for pre-term labor and being on a strict bedrest for 2 months- I actually made it full term (the twins made it clear that they call the shots from very early on.)  I was induced on December 12, 2011 but of course after 16 hours of labor, 3 hours of pushing and then finally a c-section, the girls showed me whose boss by coming on the 13th instead. 
I dont EVER recall a time in my life, no wait, an entire decade of my life that I have ever cried as much as I have in the past 4 months.  Im sure some of that was attributed to hormones but most of those tears came (and come) while looking into my very own daughters eyes.  There was a long time that I didnt think I would ever have kids of my own.  Now, these two beautiful, healthy, spunky, diva-licious girls are more than I could ever ask for.  Every tantrum, every sleepless night, every blowout (which, by the way, with 2 babies is like 5 times a day- poop everywhere!), is totally worth it.  I love being a mom.

Meet my girls:


Both 95% percentile.  Volleyball maybe?
My love bugs

I hope you all get the chance to meet them some day.  We have so much fun.

I hear ya on the tears. Motherhood if full of crazy hormones but mostly joy. I love how Claire's hands are placed in the picture. Paige's smile is adorable. I am so happy for you. Maybe one day we will meet them while in Utah visiting family. We will see :)

They are so beautiful! So happy for you! I hear you on the no time for all the social media. I have pretty much abandoned my blog as well since #2 came along. There is not enough time! Hope to see you guys sometime soon!

They are just so cute! I can only imagine how much work 2 little babies are instead of 1 and for that I truly admire you. I know you are a great mom
