Lots of Love and Smiles!

There is always so much love and smiles with Lillian and Claire that I just cannot help but share them with everyone. 

They had a rough day and fell asleep in the car.  (Claire and Lillian)
A Lily Pad smile!
A Claire Bear smile!
Cuddle time, sorry you got cut off Lillian :-(
Josh home for dinner having some cuddle time with Lillian. I was busy still eating when he was having his cuddle time with Claire, so no pictures tonight of them. 

I have been back to work for over a month now and it is still so hard not spending my days with the girls. I know I am luck and they are just down the hall from me, but having to walk out of their classroom everyday breaks my heart. Since we don't get home until shortly after 5 o'clock most days, I have to rush and get dinner started. Not long after dinner is finished and cleaned up it is time for their jammies and last bottle for the night. That really doesn't leave us with much time to just relax and enjoy each other. I loved today being able to spend my day holding my girls, watching them smile at each other, wiggle around and I loved being the one who gets to comfort them when they are upset. These are the simple things I miss everyday and when I get to spend time with Lillian and Claire it makes my heart so happy.

After we got home this evening from school, both of the girls were so happy. We all were down on the floor hanging out. Claire almost rolled completely over from her back to her tummy, the only thing stopping her was her arm. Then I was also able to get picture of them BOTH smiling, this is a first. Lillian loves to ham it up for the camera and anyone interested, however as soon as Claire sees a camera her smiles usually disappear.

Just a few others

Here are a few other pictures from this weekend.

Lillian and Claire are 3 months today!

Another great weekend!

This weekend Justin, Jessica and Levi came to visit us, they have not seen the girls since they were 2 weeks old so it was great having them here. Every time I see Levi, I can't get over how big he is getting. Leia was getting stressed having him climb all over her and grab at her, but Leia sure did love all the snacks he was sharing.

A little update

Things are still going great around here. The weather is warming up and sleep is much more commen. Most nights the girls will sleep a solid 6 -7 hours before waking for a bottle and some nights longer. I just cannot get over how big my girls are getting. It doesn't seem like it was that long ago that they were way too small for their bouncers and now their little feet hang off the edge. Claire rolled from her tummy to her back the other day when we were playing on the floor. They both are so close to rolling from back to tummy, but just can't get that full turn; it won't be long. Here are some new pictures of them from over the past week.

Another Great Weekend With Great Company

This weekend some wonderful friends drove down from Minnesota to visit us for the weekend. Lauren, Cory and Nickie came and meet Lillian and Claire for the first time. I enjoyed having an evening out with Lauren and finally having some girls time of shopping, dinner and drinks with her. It has been way too long! Josh enjoyed playing some video games and seeing a movie with Cory and Nickie. Lillian and Claire enjoyed cuddle time from everyone!

What a Great Weekend!

This weekend we had some visitors meeting the girls for the first time. My Aunt Patty, Aunt Joyce and cousins, Amy, Kaity, Patty, and their girls Kaitlyn and Ellie drove down from Ill. It was so wonderful seeing them all and being able to share my girls with them. Here are a few pictures that were taken from this weekend.
