I gave each of the boys a mini ice cream cone (just the cone, no ice cream!) to snack on while I got their real food ready. Cash, with a huge smile, crushed it to pieces right away. Graham wasted no time eating his...don't think he even left a crumb behind.

something needs to be done


The boys' hair is out of control. But I can't really fathom cutting a baby's hair before their first birthday. Is that what you do with boys? I just don't know because Marlo was bald till she was nine months old.

No matter what I do to it, it just falls forward. And it's not a mohawk, it's long everywhere and getting curly.

p.s. Mark doesn't like it when I say they have Justin Bieber hair.

double trouble

I have to admit it's pretty funny to see two of them, with their toupees and their matching expressions. But when one of them gets into something, the other goes right after him!

Their favorite place is the vertical blinds at our sliding glass door (Vertical blinds are such a hassle in the first place...I LOATHE them) They pull on them till they come right out and they're so proud about it. And when I tell them no, they look up at me like that's the most ridiculous thing they've ever heard.

They crawl the same way, with their left leg sticking straight out.

They have no regard for each other if there's something they want. They do a lot of shoving and elbows to the chest and stealing binkies and toys. Today Graham fell backwards onto the tile and as he was crying Cash came over and took his binky out and put it in his own mouth.

Marlo's wheels are always turning. When she sees a treat she immediately tells me she needs some "healthy food" because she thinks once she has something good for her that there can't possibly be any reason why she shouldn't have something full of sugar.

Oh and she told my parents, who watched the kids while we were in Las Vegas, that her mommy lets her ride in the front seat of the car.

She can be pretty sweet too. When we came home she said, "Mommy I missed your whole body!" (sigh...I do too)

And a recent conversation:
M: "I like how you got made."
Me: "What do you mean?"
M: "I like your skin and your face and all of your stuff".

best time ever

Mark and I went to Las Vegas for three whole nights to attend my best friend Molly's wedding and I can't tell you how great it was. Not because we got to sleep in and eat out and stay in a hotel where somebody picked up after ME for a change, but because my dearest friend married her her true love, and so began a life of happiness, and no one deserves it more.

with jase, who had me laughing nonstop



me and my men

my favorite pic

Everyone still cried, even though their vows were things like "I promise to never leave you lonesome tonight" and "You're my good luck charm" and "I just wanna be your teddy bear".

My biggest congrats, Mr. and Mrs. M.
I love you so much.
