I am a part of the masses...

... that have a fb page!  Yes, I finally gave in to the peer pressure and did it.  Of course, look what happened.  I haven't posted on my blog in forever.  :( I realized the other day that I had put Halloween pics on my fb page and not on here!  What am I to do?!  It's hard not being addicted.  I need more self control!

So there is a lot to catch up on.  First, the girls are getting so big.  They laugh and play and are a joy to be around all.the.time.  It is really hard to have a bad day!  It's blissful.  They are feeding themselves their bottle and then I feed them solid food.  Then they have some finger food like cheese or puffs.   They have come so far in the last year and I am so proud of them... and of myself!  I know the girls wouldn't be doing this good had I not had the stubbornness determination that I do.  Sit down, because what I am going to tell you next will floor you.  They continue to eat 24+ oz of formula (12-24 months) a day plus.... are you ready for it.... 80 jars of baby food every two weeks!  That's right, I said 80.  Everyone tells me, "oh, you've got to put them on table food." "oh my! why don't you feed them the same food you eat (blended)"  My answer:  Why?  Why am I going to rush them into eating food that they cannot really handle yet.  They still have an incredibly strong gag reflex so stage 3 food is a challenge-they are improving though.  And I am NOT complaining-I'm bragging!  I think it is friggin fabulous that they are enjoying their food and want to eat.  AND, why in the hell would I escape the convenience of jar food and try to blend everything we eat?  There is such a variety of organic baby foods that I don't have that kind of time!

Everyday they do something that makes me laugh.  Like, last night, Maddie kept trying to sit on Jeff's and my head.  (we were laying on the floor and it is a super fun game to crawl all over mom and dad)  We kept trying to lay her next to us, but she persisted. Jeff finally let her sit on his head and when she did, she farted!  hahaha!  Then she giggles and giggled.  I think Mickie knew it was going to happen because then she laughed and clapped as if she approved!  Friggin funny.

Halloween turned out exceptionally well considering we had to stop at three places, spread from one side of town to the other.  The girls didn't mind their costume at all and Jeff and I ate between stops and the girls got to try their first curly fries!  (loved 'em, btw!)  They crashed when we got home and it was the BEST Halloween that I have had in a really long time!

I have started listening to Christmas carols (actually, I started a week before Halloween!) and the girls and I jam whenever we are in the car.  They "sing" all the songs with me.  It's great.  I can only imagine what the passer by thinks when they see me singing and laughing with myself, not knowing that the two funniest girls are in the back seat!  This last Monday they turned 13 months old.  yowza.
