You notice my exclamation point? Well, that's how we greeted everyone when we walked in the door to the girls first family reunion on Sunday (Si's side). . .except it was "WWWWAAAAAHHHHHH"!!! From Olivia, directed towards her great grandpa. The whole room stopped what they were doing to see what was going on. Great first impression! We were super cute though, so luckily few people cared=)
The girls are into the "stranger danger" stage now and are afraid of new people. I took them to the mall a couple of weeks ago in just the stroller, not the car seats attached into the stroller (facing me), and they SCREAMED bloody murder when we walked into our first store, Victoria's Secret. They cried for 20 minutes. I just kept shopping, thinking that maybe they would stop... eventually. Yeah, I was that mom. And yeah, it was not fun.
Speaking of that mall experience. . .the girls and I go shopping every Wednesday with Miss Sheila and baby Adam. If we can't use our current stroller, we are going to have to find something new. We are thinking about this one. (Non tech savvy people, click on the word "one" and it will link you to the stroller I am talking about)
It's got some super cool features, most notably that the seats can be changed to face whichever direction we want that day. Both girls can face me, both girls can face out, the girls can face each other, or the girls can face away from each other. How cool is that?! We don't really have any desire to buy another new stroller, but we are thinking that we want to try and save the Graco that matches the car seats so we can sell the whole thing as a set when we are done with them, and the pink safari jogging stroller we have (that I love) is great. . .but it doesn't fit through standard doorways! That obviously can't be our primary stroller then can it? I need to be able to go to the mall and fit between the clothes in the isles as well as down the isles at the supermarket without blocking other peoples carts! So, we are looking at this one. There is a different brand spanking new stroller that is purple that I LOVE, but I can't justify the $650 price tag. SO, this is what I can get. I really think we are going to like the versatility with this stroller. I know a lot of twin moms are big on the side by side strollers, but you know what? At this point I'm a tandem girl, all the way. It may be heavier and longer, but it better accomadates my needs at this point =).
In other news, Olivia had these two little bumps on the inside of her gums and she had a scratch on her ear that we were thinking needed to be looked at by the pediatrician, so we made an appointment to go in today. Sure enough, Livvy has a little skin infection by her ear. Antibiotic ointment 3 x a day and we will be good to go. As for the little bumps, they are mucus seals (like a pimple kind of on the inside of your mouth). They should go away on their own. Gross, but glad it's an easy fix!
While we were there we weighed the girls and we just keep getting bigger!
Miss Olivia - Baby A - 19lbs 15 oz
Miss Brianna - Baby B - 21 lbs 2 oz (holy buckets Batman!)
Also, news in the tooth department. Bri has gotten her second tooth, also on the bottom. For those of you keeping track, that's Brianna - 2, Olivia - 0.
Olivia is obviously just way too busy rolling all over the place to grow teeth! You put her down and she rolls one way, then turns around and rolls the other. Except in her crib. In her crib she rolls onto her tummy, then screams bloody murder until someone comes to save her! Bri can roll as well, but chooses not to at this point. Instead she would rather lay on her back and grab her toes. Crazy how different two babies can be!
One thing they can both do equally as well however, say Da-Da! Si is so proud. Olivia can say ma-ma, but has only said it a couple of times. It's a work in progress. Every time I say Ma-Ma to the girls they laugh at me. Not the response I was expecting!
That's all for now! Have a great rest of your week!!
