...And Today???

I had to take Lila up to the hospital today for a follow-up appointment for a no-big-deal issue. While making the drive, I turned around to find both twins laughing + dancing to a little old school MJ 'The Way You Make Me Feel.' Made. My. Day.

What Made My Day Today???

My day was made today by an unsolicited 'Bless You Mama' from my Pearl after I sneezed.

It's the little things people!

I love wrapped presents. (Especially wrapped presents from Mutha K.) There is just something so beautiful about well-wrapped gifts. Maybe it's the time and care put in to making the gift perfect. I love them so much that I decided a while back that I am done with gift bags. Mark my words people, I'm not buying another. EVER. Only beautiful paper-wrapped presents from here on out.

Totally Toddlers

Lila + Lincoln are totally toddlers. Curious, talking, exploring, figuring things out, pushing the boundries and testing the limits. My goodness, is it fun. My goodness, is it exhausting. Timeouts are in effect. Fake crying is being mastered. Snuggles are abundant. Laughter is constant. Dirt is everywhere. (Fingerprints too!) And the volume in our house is growing.

I'm thankful for these 2 healthy turd-toddlers. So, so thankful. Blessed to married to a super-stud who is one of the most hands-on daddys ever. EVER! And very thankful for our daily routine. Their regular naps and set bedtime have been lifesavers for this little family with twins. I often get asked how do you do it with twins?!? How does any mom do it really? Any child is a ton of work. But for us, routine is the key. And our amazing sleepers and early bedtime are awesome! Gives us just enough of a break to do it all again the next day.

Oh Lila. Sweet, sweet Lila. We just love this girl. Not just because she is the worlds best toddler-eater. Not just because she has the most beautiful blue eyes. Pacific blue. Not just because she's turning into a sweet little singer or has dance moves that grown women would be jealous of. Not even because she is the perfect combination of girly-girl and her brother's best bud. Also not just because she cooks with her mama, digs in the dirt with Lincoln, kicks + throws the balls with daddy and cuddles + chases Jezebelle. She's funny. I mean seriously funny, and cracks Brian and I up all the time. And her language?! Oh my word does this girl talk. Sentences people! And so clearly too! Don't get me wrong, we love all these things about our sensitive little girl.

But the reason we love her so much...

Because she's our Pearl.
