I cant believe Christmas is finally here! Christmas time has a whole new spirit and excitement this year sharing it with my little girls. We started off our Christmas with new traditions. We took the girls to go see Christmas lights in this amazing neighborhood where everyone has tons of lights that play to Christmas music played on a radio station. It was so much fun to be all bundled up all cozy taking in the joys of Christmas.
We spent our Christmas morning this year at Grandma Teri's house. The girls had a blast opening all of their presents and also fighting over them too.
Today Clint got sent home from work since it was raining so we took advantage of our Monday and decided to go see Santa Clause. Since it's our first Christmas we weren't sure what to expect when the girls finally got to meet Santa. Of course they did great actually they weren't really sure what the big deal was. They just looked up at Santa then back at us wondering why some crazy lady is shaking bells at them. The picture isn't full of smiles but I am a happy mama it isn't full of tears.
We also picked up a personalized ornament at the mall. We get one every year (since we've been married) to represent that special year. Its always fun to hang them on the tree every year and look back and all the great years we have had together.
I love this ornament from last year. Grandma Teri got this for me since I was too pregnant to go get one last year. I think it sums up last year perfectly.
9 months is already here. I cant believe how much they have grown and their personalities keep blossoming as well. The girls are still sleeping in our room and we just upgraded to a king size bed so they can climb into our bed in the morning and watch their favorite cartoon Micky Mouse Clubhouse while I go back to sleep. Between the new teeth coming in and the babies head cold I feel like I am up all night.
As I was writing this blog thinking about how there is no new milestones to report Chloe and Cadey both decided that tonight at exactly 9 months that they would start holding their own bottles. I am one happy mama and so excited to pass this feeding onto them. It's much more enjoyable for me to have them cuddle up next to me while they eat then having my arms cramp up while I have to hold to bottles at the same time.
This weekend has become my worse nightmare both babies woke up with a head cold Friday morning. I have always had the fear of taking care of two sick babies and feeling sick with them. Just the thought of two screaming babies while you feel like your on your death bed scares me. Well its here Clint and I both woke up Sunday with a sore throat and was all down hill from there, fever, body aches, and lots of tissues. In the midst of feeling like I was hit by a truck all I could do is feel sorry for my babies. They cant tell me if their throats hurt or even get to blow their noises. They don't even get to take a decongestant, the only thing they get to do is cry and wonder what has happened to them. As we battle our cold as a family I took these super cute pictures of the girls soaking in a nice warm bath.
