A Very Merry Unbirthday To You!

Oh my...those boys are 6 months old. It went really fast. It seems like just yesterday they were this size...
I have to say over all that it's getting a little easier. I don't know if Mr. Hubs and I are just adjusting or it really is getting easier. The boys are happier these days. I am so thankful for that. This past Friday I loaded babies and 2 friends up in the swagger wagon and we took off to OKC for the day to have our hair done. Shrek and Donkey were perfect angels ALL DAY LONG!!! They slept a little in the car on the way up there but otherwise they were up all afternoon and never threw a fit or got upset about anything. It was AMAZING! These boys still take 3 naps a day and to go all afternoon without one is just unheard of.
Today they went for their 6 month check up and shots. I hate that they have to have shots. But, I know that it keeps them healthy. I had Nana Karen go with us this morning. It is much easier to go to the doctor with an extra set of hands. Whew! It made a world of difference. *Thanks Nana Karen!*
Big Boy Shrek weighed in at 19 pounds this morning and 27" long. He is a CHUNK. He is also one of the happiest little boys I have ever seen. He is all smiles and drool....oh my the drool! He is still "that kid" that has to wear the bib 24/7 and still manages to get his shirt soaked. Over the last month big boy has started rolling both directions. HALLELUJAH!  Now if he would start doing that in the middle of the night Mommy and Daddy would be much happier so we wouldn't have to go flip the little pancakes 100 times a night. We are still working on sitting up by ourselves. I know we will get there soon.
Little Donkey weighed in at 16 pounds 7 ounces  and 26" long this morning. He is still tiny compared to his brother. I always tell him he may be small, but he will always be the oldest. Donkey has really gotten chatty over the last month. He has found his voice for sure. He is one of the most laid back babies. Nothing much ruffles his feathers (except when he's tired) and he rarely cries. Donkey has his finger stuck in his mouth all the time. Just one finger stuck in the side of his mouth. It's cute. Donkey isn't rolling over both directions yet, but I'm pretty sure we are days away from that accomplishment. He can sit up on his own better than his brother. Well, really he just leans over on his legs. I'm not sure it could really be called sitting up. Donkey LOVES baby food and eating from a spoon. He yells if I am not fast enough with the good stuff. He and his brother definitely favor the orange foods over the green foods.
I can't believe my babies are 6 months all ready!
I think the next few months are going to bring lots of milestones and lots of work for Mommy. Both boys are already pulling up on all 4's and rocking. YIKES...it's not going to be long.

Nana Karen's Red Sauce and Meatballs~ Oh My!

When I am in the mood for comfort food my mind immediately goes to Spaghetti and Meatballs. It has been my favorite for as long as I can remember. My version of the dish consists of jarred sauce and ground beef or frozen meatballs because I didn't know how to make meatballs. Enter Nana Karen. When I was pregnant with Shrek and Donkey there wasn't much I could do the further along I got. Nana Karen would come over about once a week and make dinner and help me with whatever. She was a God send. It was an enormous help. One of the things she would make was Spaghetti and Meatballs. Wow! She made homemade sauce and from scratch meatballs. Every time I eat this dish I am in heaven. Nana Karen is an old school cook. She doesn't measure anything and makes everything from memory. A few weeks ago she found a pasta maker that her and I have been playing with and making homemade pasta. If you have never had homemade pasta it is divine!  She came over today to make some pasta. While s

Potty Mouth

You would think I would be referring to myself or Mr. Mayer. But, no. I'm talking about the precocious little girl that lives in this house. "I cleaned my room damn good." Wait. What? That was the sentence Diva told me a few weeks ago when I asked her if she had cleaned her room. I was in shock. Mr. Mayer was stifling a laugh. Diva was dead serious. A few days after that she came downstairs and told me to "Tell those damn boys to leave my damn toys alone." Apparently her brother's were messing with her Barbies. We have also had the occasional "damn it" when she drops something or spills something. It was super embarrassing when we were at Target and she dropped a toy in the toy department and said "damn it." Thankfully there was no one around to hear her. Diva's um...creative (?) vocabulary started as soon as she started speaking. She has always used big words, whether she knew what they meant or not. Mr. Mayer and I are totally

Strollergate

I have twins. In order for me to have any freedom or do anything ordinary I MUST have a stroller. A double stroller. Have you ever seen/pushed/owned a double stroller? It's like a land train. It's like being a bull in a china shop wherever you go. I started my journey with a Graco tandem stroller that the car seats fit into. This stroller was as long as I am tall. The boys hated it because they didn't like not being by each other. I started researching and asking around and was told by numerous sources that the best stroller was the Peg Perego Aria. I priced new ones and searched Craig's List and found one for a reasonable price. I was very excited . Now, the stroller is light weight enough for me to carry in one hand. The boys were happy with it because they could see/touch/steal toys and snack from each other. Very important to them. However....the canopy barely covers the boys heads. Not good with the Oklahoma weather. And see those double wheels on the front. Thos
