So, yesterday Liz and I decided to go to Portland to Babies R Us and the mall. There wasn't really a reason to go, just the call of cute baby things. :0)
We decided to take both girlies (Z got to spend the day with Grandma and Grandpa) which was a lot of fun! It's the first time it's just been us girls, and although our little princesses are too young to experience much, it was still neat to have them with us.
I'm still getting used to seeing Liz as a Mommy and it did seem a bit surreal to be sharing that with her now. :D Feeding, changing and cooing with the girls' side-by-side was really fun and something I had been looking forward to for awhile.
The girls were pretty well behaved; as well as a two month old and almost two month old can be. It was funny though that there was only one calm one at a time. ;0) If Avalee was happy and/or sleeping, Madisen was crying and vice versa. We also received quite a few questions about whether they were twins, which was amusing (they look nothing alike!). Everyone else just wanted to stare at them and marvel about how close in age they seemed to be (by the end of the trip, I think we were just automatically saying "Yup, they're only a month apart" to anyone who approached).
I didn't get any pictures of our expedition, because we had our hands full with two babies, two diaper bags, two purses, etc...! ;0)
But, here are some past pics of the two of them; pictures I'm sure they'll fondly look back on when they're older. ;0)
Their first picture together--the day after Madisen was born
I love this pic! It just might be possible that we might see a similar pic in 21 or so years. ;0)
Play-date time! Wait...don't they have to both be awake for that??
Oh, they're so going to kill us for these!
