Tuesday Tunes - WINTERSLEEP

So I think that on Tuesdays I am going to share a song with all of you...Honestly I have no idea how many people actually read my blog because I know I don't always leave comments when I read others posts!!

First up a shout out to a "local" band from Halifax, WINTERSLEEP
This band is my husbands favourite and I honestly knew little of them before we met but now I adore most of their music. This first song is a bit more mellow than most of their songs but I love the easy flow of the music...

Wintersleep - Weighty Ghost

Please tell me what you think....

The Twins' Baby Blessing

So today we had the twins' baby blessing, and it went as smoothly as we could have hoped for. The girls slept REALLY well last night and today they did not even cry once during either blessing. Of course I cried a little bit but it was actually quite beautiful to see the men up there and our sweet little girls.

Charlotte wore the blessing dress that her cousin Harriett wore, and Ruby wore her cousin Henris' dress (yes he had a dress). They looked beautiful with their little hand knit white sweaters and the dresses.

We got a family photo but to be honest I don't want to post it. I have a hard time these days with photos and we were in a rush this morning so I never got to do my hair..
However, here is the family and this special day!

Happy Half Birthday Babies

It is hard to believe that our little girls are 6 months old today. I have to keep telling myself that really their adjusted age is 3 1/2 months being born so early but it still has been 6 months since I was "rushed" over from my regular fetal assessment and the decision was made to take them out...

They are growing so fast and it amazes me how much I love them. I know people always say that but it really is true. My heart burst with love for them and my head burst with trying to keep my patience with two of them both screaming at the same time.. However, when it is all said and done..all it takes is a smile from them.

They are developing their own little personalities!
Charlotte is our giggle girl.. She loves to laugh and smile and giggle.
Ruby also loves to smile and giggle but she is more reserved and keeps it only for when mommy is really funny. Charlotte, you just have to look at her like you "might" be trying to make her smile and she laughs!

All I can say, "Is mine is a life which is truly blessed"!

Welcome Back Brady... FOOTBALL

I know I have FOOTBALL in caps for the title and I do have fun watching the Patriots games with my husband but aside from those games you won't find me watching any other football games. We went to a game last year... No wait.. the year before when Brady was not hurt and had a blast...

How cute are my girls surprising their daddy with the Patriots outfits ready to cheer for the game. Too bad they were well asleep before they even started warming up.

Allow me to Vent AGAIN

OK I know I should stop venting and I am not really sure what has gotten into me lately, but I seem to be easily annoyed by people who just... well... are just... you will see.

SO the other morning I dropped my husband off at work which is not in our usual morning routine as he takes the bus to work and I decided since we were out and packed up in the car that I would head out to Walmart and pick up a few things we needed.
I got there before the store opened at 8 (which I have never experienced before) so I drove around for a few extra minutes keeping the babies asleep and decided to pull in a few minutes early and get the babies into the stroller. So I pull into a parking spot designated for parents with babies or pregnant women. (On a side note I love these parking spaces) So getting out of the car this other car pulls into a parking spot beside me and out get two 55-60 year old husband and wife. Yes, the parked in a spot for new moms and pregnant women. I was looking at them and the sign and them and the sign and finally I could not hold my tongue any longer. I asked them quite politely if they realized the parked in a space which is designated for new parents or pregnant women??? They looked me straight in the eye and said yes! Here is where I normally do not say anything but perhaps now that I am a new mother I felt entitled to say something. I responded by saying, "You DO realize that the parking space right next to the one you parked in is available and NOT designated for new parents or pregnant women and that the couple of extra steps I doubt would have done you any harm??"

Yes I KNOW what you are thinking... not Jenny how could you say that...
You are all thinking... Seriously the parking space next to it was available... YES YES YES it was.. in face, the entire parking lot was almost empty...

ARGH... why must people do these things to annoy me????

Seeing Double (YES another Photo)

I am amazed everyday by how fast our little girls are growing.
They are starting to discover the things they like and dislike more.
One thing they LOVE right now is being outside, which is wonderful but will suck for me when winter get here. Today they just laid on a blanket with their feet in the grass for over an hour, and anyone with twins (or one baby for that matter) knows how rare and precious having one to sit on the grass and read with them can be.

They looked so cute out there I just had to get a photo...

Though Charlotte is still a little heavier than Ruby, they are certainly without a question *not that there ever was one* identical twin girls!
