I do apologize for the gaps in the Chirps.. the days seem to just go by so quickly here! Things are going really well. The boys both gave their first smile this past week. It's the best thing ever. Cason continues to look like he could possibly be adopted into this dark haired dark eyed Italian family. They are starting to get a little bit chunky, which we love. I'll have to weigh them this week (with the super accurate method of weighing myself on the scale without a baby, then with a baby, and subtracting the difference).
Jess and I have just accepted that we can't plan our days, or keep the house clean. I am fine with this, but Jess does notttt like looking around and seeing a mess. It really bothers her.. guess ya shoulda thought of that before you decided to have twins huh, Jess.
Being so busy with the boys has taken away from the special time I am used to getting with Cadence and Clara. This has made me feel kinda guilty, so last night I decided to do what TJ always does with the girls. I took Cadence out on a date. Just me and CayCay (that's what Clara calls her). It was so nice having that one on one time with her. We went shopping, and I let her pick out something for herself, and something to take home to Clara. I told her it was her night so we could do what she wanted. She wanted to try on almost ten shirts, just to end up buying a Frozen hair accessory set.
After we went shopping, we went to dinner. Cadence wanted to go to the place with "pancakes and the strawberry syrup!" We went to iHop. Cadence ate four pancakes, two eggs and then wanted mac n cheese. I thought for sure I was going to bring home a sick child, but she was ok.
When we got home we made a board game together. It is called The Cardinal Bird Family. We made up "Wacky Cards" that make you do something silly to moves spaces. Then we made up "Guess Who" cards where you have to impersonate someone in the family, and then everyone tries to guess who you are.. this was hilarious. It is so fun to see how Cadence views us. I can't wait to do a date night with Clara.
