Trip Update

Hi Everybody!

My babies are napping at the same time for the 2nd day in a row. And Kim and her babies are all napping too!!! I think this is the first time I've had to myself all week except for showering. It's been a fun week here. We got here on Sunday and got to settle in for a day before Kim and Mark went back to work. And I think we've settled into a pretty good routine for our mornings watching the girls. Fia goes to preschool so she's not around so its like having two sets of twins, two eight month olds and two 2 yr olds. Next time I say twins might be cool...I'm lying I really am! It's been a lot of fun though. Bel has warmed up to us some and she and Charlotte play well together for the most part. Some issues with sharing but for 2's they are doing well. Zoey and Eloise play on the floor and in the jumper. And even coordinate naps;) We've been to the parks in the afternoon. Charlotte loves the swings and even tried the big kid tunnel slide and twisty slide. A very exhausting but highly fun week to be sure!

Last week went really well at Omah and Opah's! I got to make a stained glass and weaved half a towel on the loom (will finish it at Thanksgiving--I promise Tilly and Louie I know you guys want yours off too...) The girls had a blast playing outside and meeting the animals. They got to know Omah and Opah too which is great for them. Charlotte calls them both "PahPah" but considering at the beginning of the week she didn't understand which name went with which person I think that's good progress. Zoey learned to wave and play patty cake. Lots of fun and a very relaxing week not having to think about meals and being able to play in the loom room was awesome. I took some pics so I'll load them when I get home next weekend. I'll try to update more over the next week. We are having lots of fun hanging out with the cousins and there is a zoo trip and a pumpkin patch in the plans for the weekend. And the best news is that Monkey gets to come see us for part of the weekend:) We miss everyone bunches!!!!

That picture of you sitting on the ground with Charlie and Zoe is by far the most beautiful picture of you I've ever seen over the course of our entire relationship :-O You are stunning.
