How do the weekends go by so fast?! This morning as I was getting Viv ready to go down for her nap I couldn’t help but think how it seems as if I was just finished putting her down yesterday. Same thing at night when I’m rocking them. It never seems like another 24 hours really could have gone by.
Albeit fast, this weekend was also pretty epic in the McCoy household. Jon and I each went out with friends on Saturday, the twins turned seven months old and tried solids for the first time, I started and finished a really great book, and Jon worked about a hundred hours.
We started out thinking that the husband was going to be heading out of town on a camping trip on Saturday, and my best friend was going to be hanging out with the twins and I. But unfortunately some things blew up for Jon at work and aside from a quick lunch with the guys he was relegated to the house to work.
Which means instead of hanging at the house, this mama went out! Let’s just say it was only the 2nd time I’ve worn a non-nursing bra since the twins were born. I take the twins with me and do lots of lunches with friends, but it’s just so hard to peel myself away from the husband and babies on a weekend. He and I both need to make it happen more often though because what is life without a little Saturday night fun with friends?
After a late night out, Sunday morning came so early. We opted out of going to church. With the twins getting older, bigger and louder we have come to a bit of an impasse. With flu season so bad this year (and sickness in general) we’re not ready to take the twins to the nursery yet. They have yet to be sick, and I’d like to keep it that way, especially since they haven’t had a flu shot, and they’re still so tiny. So, we’ve been taking them with us to our Sunday school class, which has been very hit or miss. Many times I have to leave with one of them, but this past week they both did great! However, I overheard a comment made about someone being distracted by Linc, and while I don’t really feel like it was merited (he had barely made a peep!), I just feel so paranoid now. There are obviously other options, like one of us staying home with them and the other going…and we might resort to that. But I’d really like for our family to be together on Sunday mornings.
ANYWAY. Sorry to get off on that tangent, but the point is that we didn’t go to church because we still don’t know what to do. With our extra time home the husband made the most delicious chocolate chip scones out of Vegan with a Vengeance, and we decided to let the twins get their first taste of some real food!
I’d call the overall experience a successful failure. Successful in that no one choked and at least they didn’t just spit it straight out. Failure in that I’m not sure any food actually made it to their tummies. I knew it might be slow going, so we’ll just keep trying!
With V and L having so many milestones this weekend, our camera got a LOT of action.
Happy Monday – we hope you had a really great weekend!
