LONG Weekend

Well my weekend started on Friday. The girls did not have daycare so I had them all day to myself. I was running low on diapers so I decided to run to Wal-Mart with them. Haha. Now I remember why I don't run errands with them. Actually I think they've swaped bodies. Emily is my good baby and Taylor is my fussy one lately! She started screaming in Wal=Mart. So I picked her up and basically walked holding her while pushing the stroller. At least I got what I needed to get done.

On Saturday, Surbjit went riding in the desert with Jeff so I had all three kids. My Working Moms group was having a stroller walk at Tri-City park so I decided that would be nice to get out of the house and get outside. We left the house at 9am and did not get back until almost 12:30pm! We played on the playground, we walked around the lake, we got to watch the ducks and the two men driving their remote controlled boats on the water. It was a beautiful day. Taylor fell asleep and then Emily fell asleep. So they never ended up napping after we got home. But then again, neither did Connor so it was a busy hectic day. After we got home we just basically played the rest of the afternoon.

Sunday, Connor and I headed up to Victorville for our friend's (Lisa) daughter's 6th birthday party. It was nice. Lisa also has twin boys that are a year older than Connor. As soon as Caydon saw Connor he wanted to play with him so bad but Connor was like my third leg and didn't want to play. He finally let go after awhile but still never really played with either Caydon or Dayton. He just roamed around and wanted me to come on. =) When they played games, he played one but no the other. They played musical chairs but he didn't want to play. But when they played pin the princess on the castle he played just fine. Then of course we had birthday cake but then had to run since we still had an hour and a half drive home. Made it in time to help Surbjit with baths for the girls etc.

So it was a nice productive weekend but Taylor has taken to crying now at night. If it's not one, it's the other. That's the problem with twins. I swear there is never a break.

Connor Has Mommy and Daddy's Number!

Oh a funny last night from Connor:

Surbjit: Go to bed Connor
C: Can you sleep with me?
S: No Connor. You’re a Big Boy. And Daddy doesn't get good sleep when you're in the bed.
C: Please.
S: Only on the weekend
C: I go "wah" then I sleep with you.

He has us down! He knows if he cries in the night, we'll let him come sleep with us! That's too funny!!!

And NO he did not sleep with us last night. =)

Busy Weekend

Well it seems as if the next two months our weekends are always going to have that title! But it's nice when we get out and DO things. It makes the kids happier and not as cranky which makes mommy and daddy happier too! Although it does mean we don't get errands run!

Saturday we had a fellow OCMOM (Orange County Mother's of Mulitples) mom came over and bought Connor's old Thomas toddler set. Woo Hoo! I'm slowly making a little bit of extra cash and getting rid of the baby stuff. YEAH!! (I sold a BUNCH of stuff the weekend before to another OCMOM that is due with twin boys in November). Then we had a birthday party to go to at 1pm. Since the girls were still sleeping (after Emily cried for an hour but finally went to sleep but that's a whole 'nother post in itself), Connor and I went over first. It was a pool party so we brought our swim suits. Of course it was a 6 year old's party so I was the only adult in the pool! Connor was luke warm. He hates going under and refuses to wear a life vest or swim things. He doesn't understand that he won't go under. I think that's my fault. We didn't start him out early enough but I don't have a pool or have easy access to a pool. Oh well.

So anyway, we were in and out of the pool. At one time I was in the pool and Connor was sitting right outside next to me. He got up and started walking and must have tripped and fell right in the pool next to me. I grabbed him but of course he went under. He didn't freak out too bad. I talked him down but he was done. After that, we got to eat, sing Happy Birthday and watch Kaylee open her presents. Then I took the three kids home and Surbjit got to stay back and hang out with the adults. Connor was so tired he fell asleep at 7pm while watching The Incredibles (his new favorite movie). That is UNHEARD of! All three kids were actually ASLEEP by 7pm! I think we need to wear them out like that more often!!

Sunday, I took Connor on a playdate with a mom and her daughter from my Working Moms group. We got to check out a new park and playground. I'll have to take Surbjit and the girls there soon. It's a really nice park. Actually, I'm running my first 5K ever (me run?!?! YIKES!) on October 5th at this park so it was nice to be able to check it out a little before hand. And it's right next to La Mirada's new water park which looks like a lot of fun! I'll definitely take Connor there next year.

Anyway, so that was our weekend! Nice and busy! Next weekend, Surbjit is going riding and then I have another birthday party to go to in Victorville on Sunday. Only Connor is going to go with me. Ah the joys!

Taylor is getting closer to crawling!!! Yesterday both Surbjit and I noticed that she can now go from laying on her tummy to sitting up on her own. We both (Surbjit in the morning, me in the evening) left her in a room. When we left, she was on her tummy. When we walked back in, she was sitting up. We were both like Woh! And she is also getting up on all fours now where before she couldn't. She's even rocking back and forth so I bet she starts moving soon!! YEAH!!!

In other news, Bigi told us a cute story that happened last weekend. She took Connor with her to go to the doctors. When they were waiting for her to get called back, Connor looked at her and said, "Bigi, you are beautiful." Now how sweet is that!!

Misc Pictures

I hardly get on here and just post a couple whatever pictures so here you go:
The kids playing together
Taylor & Emily

Taylor and her silly faces!

Emily doing what she does best. Standing up!!

In other news, Taylor started clapping today! Still not on cue but she can clap both hands together. AND she was up on all fours! I have a feeling she'll be starting crawl soon! YEAH! Maybe that will make her a happier baby. Although she's fine with just rolling everywhere to get most places she does get frustrated sometimes when she can't reach something.

Last Night

Connor ended up in bed with us. Emily cried. Gave her a bottle. She still cried. She fell asleep. An hour later, woke up again. Cried, cried, cried. Taylor slept. It's a darn good thing she's a heavy sleeper or doesn't mind her sister crying. UGH!!!

Taylor Wants to be Different

So apparantly, it looks like she is getting a tooth in too. But guess where?? It's on the upper side. Hmm. I know they don't always have to be the same but come one. Who get's their first tooth on the top?? Not many.

And the road trip ....

was a success! The girls (and Connor) did awesome on the way up!! Connor and Emily woke up about an hour before we got to my parents but were fine. Connor was just enjoying looking at everything. When we got there, Taylor woke up too so we fed both girls a bottle (well I fed both girls a bottle while Surbjit unpacked and set up everything). Then we put them to bed. They ended up sleeping until 7am I believe so I got some sleep.

Friday we spent visiting my Mom's work so everyone could see the twins and Connor. Connor was NOT shy! LOL! He loved visiting with everyone and got to see their Koi pond with the fish and waterfall. He even got to feed the fish! The rest of the day was basically just spent at the house relaxing and spending time with my Mom and Dad.

Saturday we went to Jamestown to visit the railroad and take a ride on the train (pictures to come later). Connor LOVED this and keeps asking to go on the choo choo again. It was a very nice ride (45 min ride but it ended up being longer because their fire trolley that rides with the train ended up derailed when they were trying to switch the engine around. Woops! But after about 15 mins (of sitting on the HOT sweltering train) they got it back on the rails and we continued our ride!). Then we ate our picnic lunch on the grounds at the railway museum. Since it was Labor day, they even had an ice cream social so we all had ice cream (except Taylor and Emily of course!). All the kids were wiped out! We went back home and tried to take naps (ha!) and then Connor spent the good part of the afternoon playing in the gravel. My parents don't have a yard per se since they live in the mountains. But my mom got Connor a bucket and some spoons and measuring cups and he had fun playing with the gravel in the driveway! Then my Dad decided to take him on a ride in the tractor. Oh boy!! Did he love that! Surbjit got a video I'll try and shorten and share. He has the bulldozer attachment on front so Connor kept saying "It's not a tractor, it's a bulldozer!" He got to drive it around and even steered it himself.

Sunday we stayed at home. We were basically outside a lot of the day. Or I should say Connor was. He and Grandma got to walk around and dig in the gravel again and had so much fun. He loved walking around and just being outside. Three of my brothers ended up coming over for dinner and Dad made a huge spread of delicious food. It was nice to be able to see them and no one had seen the twins ever. (oh yeah, and I forgot my mom had seen the girls since they were born. I forgot she came down in April! Woops!). Then Connor got to drive the tractor again. This time they took some gravel from the pile my Dad had and spread it over the driveway so he got to pick up gravel and dump it out. Very much a highlight of the day for him!!

We left Sunday night for the return home. We figured it would just be easier. It's kind of a bummer for Connor because he doesn't get to see all the tractor trailers and trains that go by. But in due time. When the girls are older and we can entertain them and they are more "aware" we can travel during the day. They did fairly ok on the way home. Both girls kept crying out every now and then. We were on pins and needles just waiting for one of them to start freaking out and we wouldn't be able to calm them down. Luckily that never happened. When we got home, all three kids went straight to their beds and stayed sleeping. Surbjit and I got to sleep around 2:30am. Taylor and Emily started to wake up at 5am. I went in, gave them their binkies and begged for one more hour! Taylor ended up falling back asleep and woke up at 7am. Emily fell back asleep and didn't wake up until 9am!!! We almost thought there was something wrong. She obviously was very tired!!!

Speaking of Emily, when she does things, she does them full throttle! She is getting not one, not two, but THREE teeth! YIKES! All on the bottom. It still doesn't look like Taylor is getting any but I think she might be getting one of her top teeth in. Weird. Who knows. Last night Emily woke up at 2am and wouldn't fall back asleep so I made a bottle and she guzzled it down! They both guzzled down their bottles this morning too. I'm thinking they are growing and getting teeth in. So I have a feeling we are in for some rough night over the next month. eek. Oh well. It will pass right. =)

Well, I'll try and get the pictures up as soon as I have time to get them off the camera.
