Seriously, come on. Time is FLYING by. My girls are now 10 1/2 months old.
How did this happen? I see the photos on my Timehop from this day last year and they are all of my swollen feet and legs or videos of my big ol’ belly with little legs and arms moving from inside. I can’t believe they are almost 1 year old. It is true what they say about the days being long but the weeks and months go by so fast.
Sydney and Harper. Silly, crazy, happy, hilarious little buggers. They certainly keep me on my toes. I have begun planning their “pink and gold” themed first birthday party for months. I have a prize punch game for the kids with dollar store toys and an adult prize punch with mini liquor bottles and scratch off lotto tickets. The décor has been planned for months and I have spent many hours cutting tissue paper to make tassels and spray painting wooden frames with gold glitter paint. Who knew a one year old birthday party would be so damn stressful!?
We are having the party at our house on May 28, in the basement and leading into the back yard. We have never had a large group of people over to our house and I am very nervous about making sure everything is perfect (and clean!). I need lots of prayers for perfect weather because a bubble station would not quite work inside or in the rain and weather in the mid west is extremely unpredictable!
My husband INSISTS that his friends will only want to come if there is a keg (really?) so of course, he assigned himself to that duty. My in laws and parents are going to help out a ton with food and my sister in law is the cake queen and will be making both smash cakes and the guest cakes. We also have a smash cake photo shoot on mother’s day that I will be attempting to make the cakes for. Lord help me.
Aside from the party planning, the majority of my time lately has been spent holding and cuddling crabby, teething babies. Lots of fevers, diaper rashes and whining going on around here. Harper has 6 teeth, 4 on top and 2 on bottom. Sydney has 4, 2 on top and 2 on bottom. Teething is the wooooorst. Especially with twins. 2 babies sick and in pain at the same time is the work of the devil!
Until next time, I will leave you with a photo of my little love bugs… ❤
