15 weeks old already...

And the time has flown by!!  

The babies are doing well.  Little colds are returning after they spent this past weekend with Grandma and Grandpa.  Now most of you are probably thinking that the twins spent the weekend with Gma and Gpa as well as Mom and Dad, but that was not the case.  CJ and I took advantage of a very generous anniversary gift from my parents in which they would watch the twins for the weekend and we took off for a fun, romantic ski/sleep weekend.  It was a little tough leaving on Friday night.  I cried for a little while in the car and I worried for most of the trip, but all in all it was a great weekend for everyone.  

CJ and I totally needed the weekend away.  We were celebrating our upcoming 30th birthdays!!  It was so nice to have time for just the 2 of us and to be best friends and lovers again instead of just parents.  We had a blast.  It was wonderful to sleep without the baby monitors on and to sleep for 6-7 hours straight before I had to wake up to pump.  It was also great to be athletic again and to spend so much time outside.  It really made me want to work on getting back into shape again.  Basically, we spent the weekend eating delicious food, skiing, hot tubing (which was huge because we basically couldn't go in a hot tub the whole time we were TTC), and sleeping.  It was perfect...well, except for the weather since it was about 50 degrees outside.  Luckily, Snowshoe had enough snow from earlier that most of their runs were open and it wasn't too bad and there were no lift lines!!  I'm already excited for our next big ski trip (hopefully next year) and when the twins are old enough and we can teach them how to ski!!

In other news, the babies are still smiling lots, sitting up in their bumbos, trying to roll over, cooing up a storm, and not sleeping well.  My parents keep suggesting that we put cereal in their last bottle for the day, but that's the only chance I get to nurse them and I'm hesitant to give that up.  I just got the Healthy Sleep Habits Happy Baby Book and I'm going to see if any of those tips works.  Babywise may be just a little too hard for us with twins and we are just not quite ready for CIO yet.  


  1. What a fun trip! It's wonderful to reconnect with your partner, isn't it?

    We tried the no-cry sleep solution but it just didn't hold up for our girl. We ended up co-sleeping just past one year with her. You never know which solution will work for your family!

  2. Sounds like a refreshing weekend! :) That's awesome you guys were able to get away and enjoy each other :)

  3. We did the same thing 2 weeks ago (minus the ski resort)! My parents watched the kids overnight and we checked into the local Marriott and enjoyed room service, hot tub and a nice quiet stretch of 8+ hours of uninterrupted sleep! It was amazing!!! Also saw 2 movies in the THEATER! (The Hobbit and Les Miz) Had to take advantage of that while we could! Isn't it the best???
