Date Night!

Brett and I went to the T-bones game with Josh and Jenny Friday night! My sis came and watched the kiddos! It was so nice to have a night away. At one point I had missed a call from my sis and when I tried calling back she didn't answer... I felt like I was going to throw up. After near panic my sis finally called back and all was okay. She had a hard time getting them to go to sleep and stay asleep. Siddalee KNOWS when her momma is gone. She was crying while Paige was holding her but all of a sudden got calm. We realized she could hear my voice through the phone, so I talked to her a little bit and she was fine :) Makes you feel good to know they are aware of who you are and when you are not there.
Saturday Mommy got out to go to a wedding and Daddy stayed home with the kiddos!
Tuesday, Amanda is coming up and we are going to try and do pictures of the kiddos ourselves. And if they don't turn out as good as I am hoping we will just go to a studio, but I thought it's worth a shot! I'm going to do some shopping around the internet and see if I can steal some ideas ;)

Run, run, run...

Wow, had a great run today. Met up with another 4th grade teacher and we ran 2.7 miles. I feel great!! The only problem now is I'm exhausted and am resulting to drinking coffee. I guess I may end up using the Keurig coffee maker after all.
Today the kiddos are going to start adjusting to their new schedule. Now that they can go longer between feedings I might actually be able to set up nap times and have a more predictable schedule! Of course with my teacher brain I have already been concocting a daily schedule in my head.
I am also reading a great book..."the curious incident of the dog in the night-time." It is from the perspective of a 15 year old autistic boy, very interesting. It is especially a good read if you have been around autistic kiddos.

2 Months Old!

Can't believe it... as of yesterday they are 2 months old.
Today we had lunch with Ms Jenny and then headed to the doctor's office. We had our 2 mo. checkup and all looks good! Siddalee had an ear infection last week and doctor says it looks better already. We did have to get shots which was not fun. Mommy got tears in her eyes... it's hard to see your babies in such pain. But they were both troopers and only took a few seconds to recover once they were in mommy's arms :) (Thank you Jenny for joining us, it was nice to have an extra pair of cuddly arms!!)
Doctor says we can up feedings and go longer in between... Max is not going to like this! He loves to eat about every 2 1/2 hours and doctor says he should be able to stretch to 4 now!! We are also supposed to do more tummy time, which neither of my children enjoy.
Mommy's running scheduled has already been derailed for one reason or another. I really need to find a running partner, that would be a big motivator!! Never did start the P90x so we'll have to work on that.

No Swimsuit for this Momma

So we are finally getting a routine down. They go to bed about 8 pm and sleep until 2 am. Then they get up again sometime from 5-6 am. I really can't complain for them not quite being 2 months old. My husband is still taking care of the morning feeding which is awesome! Now that I have adjusted to this schedule and I got cleared from the doctor... I am running!! First day was rough, but it's getting better. It's starting to become enjoyable. My plan is to start mixing in some P90X and see how that goes.
As for this summer I don't think we will be getting into a swimsuit. It's not just a matter of losing weight (I technically only have 7 lbs. left to lose), but just getting back to normal across the board. Which really with 2 little ones, you can't really go to the pool anyway.
