Time Flies!!!




As the official holidays are upon us I'm realizing that it's all happening so fast! I've heard one too many times..."Enjoy it! They grow up so quickly." But I'm seeing that's it's so true. My once little peanuts are these large active munchkins! SHOCK! What happened to my tiny barely mobile preemies?? It kind of makes me a little sad. I'll probably repeat this story over & over again but whatever. I remember bringing them home in this oversized car seat & watching to see if they were okay at every turn during our 30 minute journey home. And they slept ever so still all the way home. They were so delicate back then...weighing in at barely 4lbs each after 10 days in the NICU.

Now they're a wopping 15lbs which is more then tripled their birth weight! And they wiggle all the time. They can barely keep still for more then 30 seconds on my lap. They twist & turn during the diaper change kicking their legs up in the air so you get all the Desitin everywhere but on their bottom where it belongs. They laugh & giggle & scream out vowels. Catalina is starting to use some consonants in her yodeling sessions lately. She also looks like she's on the verge of a real crawl not the scooting she now does on her back or on her elbows. Valentina is the a literal jumping bean & I swear she must have the strongest little legs. Could we have a gymnast on our hands? Or perhaps a WNBA star :) AAAAAHHH every mother's dream!

The girls turn 7 months next week & I sit & wonder where did it all go?? When did it all happen?? Will I have time to do all the things I want to do with them before they're off to college??
