Insta-Wrap {02.22.2013}

This week is a combo of my favorite IG photos over the past two weeks.  Be sure to follow along (masseya) for cuteness overload on a daily basis:)

On the 8th of February we took baby girls to the doctor for their 2 month check-up.  I snapped a picture of these cuties and their nakey bods before height and weight checks.  Seriously? How precious are they with their daddy?  I find myself with a twindge of jealousy when I watch the way they interact with Jordan.  So precious.  This picture pretty much sums up the blessing that make up my entire world.  

After our visit to the pediatrician (and 5 shots in their little legs later- booo..) we stopped for lunch between errands.  I had just gotten these head bows from Jameson Monroe in the mail and worked hard to match them to anything the girls had in their closet.  Momma might have a problem slight obsession when she now matches outfits to head bows instead of the other way around.  But, when you have bows as beautiful as this one, it’s hard not to. I could spend a small fortune on dressing my baby girls’ heads.

..and Parker- stunning.  

..not to forget Jolie Polie.  Aproxx 3 minutes after this picture was taken she had a blow out while daddy was holding her.  Up her back and down her legs.  They always poop on Jordan. 

At least it didn’t get on the bow. 

For this reason we have been keeping not only an extra set of clothes for the girls, but also for daddy, too. 

Aunty Ashley (sister in theory) came to visit.  My girls ADORE her.  I mean.. who wouldn’t?  Duh.

Baby dreams are so sweet and my favorite.  The girls ALWAYS smile in their sleep.  But, what in the world would trouble this sweet one to pucker her lip? I was dying to scoop her up and rock that bad (?) dream away. 

Lazy Saturday afternoon last week while Jordan was at work.. The girls fell asleep in my lap, and momma decided she wanted to nap, too!  I confess that I have never napped since bringing the girls home from the hospital until this day.  We slept on the couch together for 2 1/2 hours.  Exhausted?  Slightly.

It was the BEST nap ever. 

Jolie and her limber gynastic stretching.  She loves her stretches, for sure.  When we unwrap her swaddleme sack after being swaddled all night long, both her arms go shooting in the air to “freedom!”.  So funny.  Love her.

I spoke of the “Tierra” eyebrow smirk on IG this week.. and here it is again.  That eyebrow and her expressions never cease to bring a smile to my face.  Talk about sparkle.  This girl has got it. 

Naps in the crib started this week and have been quite successful.  Up until this point we’ve been letting them sleep anywhere- usually in the swing, our laps, or the bouncy seats.  We  decided that if we had any hopes to move them to the nursery (around month 3 or 4 is the plan- tenative.) that they should actually learn to be able to sleep laying flat.  They still sleep at night in their bouncy seats.

The hardest part is letting them cry it out if they start to stir around.  Momma and Daddy need some self-soothing techniques of our own. 

I had a crazy long day at work on Wednesday- I had to attend an event after my usual work day- which left me without my love bugs for way.too. long. 

Jordan came to have lunch with me and brought the cutest companions with him:)  That man know the ropes when it comes to dressing my girls.  He even brought extra bows in the diaper bag in case this momma didn’t approve of the one he selected.  Smart man. 

I forsee my complete confidence in him for dressing the girls when school days roll around.

And.. today is FRIDAY and this week I’m off (every other week I have a four day weekend).  I have been dying for this day with my sweet babes.  The next four days will be amazing– so much P&J time. 

Pure perfection in my book. 

This weekend should be fun!  Today is a lazy PJ-kind-of-day.. Jordan is at the frie station, so it is just me and the girls.  Tomorrow we are heading out to spend some time with our fire family- P&J will finally get to meet the women of the family.  The fire wifes are super jelly that the guys already got to meet Parker and Jolie.  Sunday will be spent with all three of my sweeties and a date with Jesus.  Monday, Jordan is back at work and I’m going solo to Jolie’s physical therapy appointment- which is going incredibly well!  She has made so much great progress with torticollis– it will soon be a distant memory:) Her motor function has improved so significantly.  It is like the torticollis was holding her back or something.  Looking forward to hearing with the therapist has to say.

What are ya’ll doin’ this weekend? 

Happy Friday!

    Your sweet babies are so beautiful! I do not know how you get anything done. I would just have to sit and watch their expressions 24/7!

  5. Holly says:

    Oh. My. Gosh. Your babes are SO cute. Aaaalmost makes me want another. πŸ˜‰ This makes me sad that my daughter was born before the big bows were "in".

    I found you on the h54f linkup. I'm a new follower and totally looking forward to reading more and SEEING more pictures of those girls πŸ™‚

    Blow outs are the worst.

    Mmmm they melt my heart!

  10. Hahaha I'm laughing hysterically about the Tierra eyebrow. Unlike Tierra though I'm sure your little girl can actually "control what happens on her face". Too funny.

    You have gorgeous baby girls! So precious!

  11. With those bows? They will never lose their sparkle!
