Yesterday Ellie woke up before Reagan and was walking around the kitchen and dining room. I went in to get Reagan out of bed. As a sat on Reagan's bed and greeted her, Ellie waddled in to the dark room, gurgeled some jibberish and clapped with joy as she saw Reagan's face. Rea jumped out of bed and threw her arms around Elle. And for one the the first times, Elle didn't fall backwards! Love my girls and the sweet friendship God is growing in them.

Early in our marraige JD named Fridays our "no cook" night. No matter what the day held, I knew when 6 came around I was not responsible for having dinner on the table. I love cooking and meal planning for my family and I am blessed with a husband that is pretty awesome in the kitchen himself but having one night off that doesn't include leftovers is a sweet tradition. Most nights this means pizza, but we sometimes go against our norm and grab burgers or Chinese. We often pick up frozen, take-n-bake or order delivery. Lately we have been going out since the littles love it and it means NO mess under the high chairs. Last night we went to a local chain, "Punch", known for delicious Neapolitan pizza. I first tried it the day we returned from our honeymoon and have loved it ever since. Reagan was exhausted from 2 trips to the park, ate silently(so rare) and people watched. Ellie smiled at every passerby. James was ravenous per usual usual and ate an entire kids 8 piece pizza. What will I do when he's a teenager??

Knows what he needs and is completely content until those needs aren't met...namely in the food department. Spends 3 hours a day sitting in his high chair. Eats SO much. Above is his face as Jose reloads his spoon.

Things I have heard too many times...."The first year is a fog." "You won't remember anything." "You'll never go anywhere." "You won't sleep at all."
I beg to differ. I slept, I went places, and I can tell you one thing for sure, I will never forget this year. The sweet, the hard, the crazy. I'll remember.
We celebrated with deep fried French fries, homemade malts and people that love our twins! Still amazed at and thankful for this year, my three kids, my hot husband and God's grace. To HIM be the glory!

She was a blessing and a comfort to me (all of my friends) during the hardest trip I have ever had to take. Y'all with one year olds better have a munchie mug or go buy one (amazon).
