Back to the Grind

Yesterday was our first day back to work. I ended up working late, but thankfully, DH made dinner. Vacation was so nice, but I love being home. I missed it. What was really nice was that everything was clean when we walked in the house, we could just unpack and start the laundry. I followed Flylady's vacation packing and planning list, and that was so helpful for this trip. We spend Sunday going to BJs to pick up food (Liam needed another case of Pediasure) and watching movies. I got caught up on a lot of stuff at work, but there is still so much more to do.

This morning I'll be going into work late though as Liam has physical therapy and then occupational therapy and Phoebe has an orthodontist appointment. I think we may be making an appointment for braces to begin! I hope my wallet survives.

I'm also coming back to update this post with a few things I forgot. For those that were interested, we did still travel to the beach last week with the boys rear-facing in their car seats. Partially because we didn't have the time to get new car seats, but also because as Liam still isn't hitting 20 lbs, I just want to wait as long as possible. They are currently 14 months, so they are over one year, but I'd like to wait another month or two to make the switch. Tommy is over 25 lbs, but we luckily bought rear-facing car seats that go to 35 lbs.

Another thing that is really cute that the boys are doing is leaning in to give us kisses. It's so cute! They don't make kissy noises or pucker up their lips, but if you ask them for a kiss, they will lean into us with their lips to ours. I love it!

The Beach and Proof That I Exist

Here's some cute pics of us on vacation. It's half over and some things have been awesome and some not so much. It's definitely been a learning experience. But we've all had lots of fun!!!

I'm not crazy about this pic, but here's one with me with both the boys!



Here's a cute pic of Liam (and me in the background)



Here's a cute pic of Tommy and his Mommy!
