Just another Manic Monday!

Hello and Happy Monday!

Oh sad face!
We had a little Bitter Betty when we went to bed last night. She was just in one of those moods where nothing was making her comfortable and she just needed to go to sleep because she was so tired! All it took was a tight swaddle, a binky, her bassinet and she was lights out (after she cried herself to sleep). We went to bed shortly after she did and hoped that we were going to get another 7 hour night, Gwynie had other plans. She woke up at 1:30am wanting to eat and needing a change. I took Gwynnie out of the room to feed and change her so Daddy good get some sleep since he had work this morning. It did not take to long for her to eat and fall right back to sleep, which made it very easy for daddy and I to go back to sleep. 

Happy Girl!
Gwynnie had a little gas problems this morning around 6:00am. She was very uncomfortable and could not get the gas out. So i grabbed her and laid her on my chest, which seems to be comfortable for her and allows her to relieve herself and going back to sleep. She slept for another hour and a half before she woke up ready to eat. She was still a little crabby, but I knew that was not going to last long. Once she ate and got her first poop out for the day she was all smiles. We walked Daddy out to his car and told him good bye and headed in so we could get changed to start our day.

Happy Birthday Poppy
We had a fun day ahead of us. It is Poppy's birthday today so we had to call and wish him a happy birthday! We were also having Erica and Kyle over for dinner for Kyles birthday. Even though his birthday was on the 2nd we were unable to go to his birthday BBQ, so I wanted to make him dinner. I made them my homemade pasta sauce and meatballs, which is one of my favorite things to make. We needed to get a few items from the store, so the monks and I headed out to grab what we needed. While at the store she was turning everyone's head. Everyone was coming up to talk to her and say hello and she just smiled right back at them. I love her little smile!!! After she flirted with everyone we headed home to start the sauce so we could meet Auntie Sammie for lunch.
 
Me and Auntie Sammie
 We met up with Auntie Sammie at her school for some lunch and girl time. It was really fun to meet her students and watch there faces in confusion while they were trying to figure out why we have the same face. Even when we told them we were twins they would not believe us, kind of interesting little people. It was good just to get some sister time and let Sammie hold Gwynnie without her little one crying. I was glad she got to hold her. :)

Erica and Kyle with Gwynnie
They day slowed down from there. We headed home to meet daddy and just relax for the afternoon before Erica and Kyle came over for dinner. Erica and I were going to go for run this fine evening as well. She is training for another 5k and I am so proud of her. So we went out for a little 2.5 mile run before dinner. The sun had set and weather had cooled down and it was a perfect night for a run. We headed out while the guys stayed in to watch football. The evening could not have gone any better, good food, good friends and a happy monkey. It is now time to call it a night and head off to bed. I wish you all wonderful dreams and will chat with you all tomorrow. Until tomorrow keep loving, laughing and living life!

Sweet Dreams!

Much Love,

Liz
