Hello y'all!

Hello lovely readers!
It's been a while, but with good reason! 
Too much to do and not enough time!

So I went back to work 6 weeks ago and I have 4 left before summer starts. I can't tell yall how much I am looking forward to that.

Life has been pretty routine, apart from a few family birthdays (and my own) and today being a rainy mothers day, I haven't really done much except work, teach lessons, and love on my babies!

Thank God my mom is here to help, but I sure do feel like my head is going to explode with so much going on! Motherhood is tough, but with two babies, well you will never know unless you go through it... Either way I want to share pics of the babies, enjoy!

Here are their monthly updates...

Their  4th month birthday is on Friday!

Sloane and mommy

Babies first Easter

Ford met the Easter bunny!

Happy babies

Notice my Lilly for Target jumper, I love it!
Yes, I was one of the crazies at Target 8:00am!
Sloane got some items too...

Ford loves football already!

Babies are doing great overall. They sleep from 10:00pm-6:00am and eat 6 oz every 3-4 hours.
Their next wellness visit is not till the end of the month so I'm not sure on weights, but they seem big and are wearing 6-9 month clothes!

We have been out to eat several times and the babies slept through most meals. A few times Ford has woken up, must be the smells of delicious food, but I just sit him on my lap and he is fine. We have yet to leave them overnight, but I'm confident they would be fine if we did.

Obviously there is so much stuff to share, but honestly, I guess I am not that type of blogger. I used to be more, but I guess I am grown up and over the share every detail of my life thing. I feel like people constantly over share and most of the time what is shared is the same thing... Don't mean to be negative, but as far as motherhood and being a new mommy, knowing my situation is very different than most makes me feel kind of unique and I like that. I love reading other blogs and using social media, but everything seems to be redundant and I am starting to chose to keep my life to myself and spend my time with my babies instead of browsing blogs/Facebook/Instagram for the same people taking the same pictures with different outfits, kind of sick of that... For instance, have y'all noticed that when someone goes out of town or takes a trip they post a picture of themselves and not some cool view of the place they are visiting? Or other people who go to a wedding, and you don't see one picture of the bride and groom but 20 of themselves? My favorite is the obligatory couple picture at a restaurant in front of the meal they are eating... How about a review of the food and maybe I would check it out instead of a picture of yourself??? My husband became much more strict about the pictures we take together a while back (not that he doesn't like taking pics with me and as you saw in our family photo, we are not the worst looking couple) but now I understand why, it shows peoples true colors when they are so self absorbed, and we would rather take pictures of our babies instead of making it all about us... In conclusion, I am over the ego's. 

Sorry for the rant, just felt like I needed to let it out and would love to hear your thoughts on it. Kind of like to know I am not the only person who feels this way.

Hope to be back soon, I miss y'all and blogging!
