My First Mother's Day!

My First Mother's Day was great! The girls slept from 10 to 6 that night! Chris got up and helped me feed both of the girls without me having to nag him several times to get up. Trust me that was a present in itself. I got to take a shower while the girls napped again. It was the first day that getting ready for church was not hectic. I opened presents from Chris and the girls before we left. I got the coolest Back Pack Diaper bag. Trust me it makes my life so much easier, I have both of my hands free to carry babies! One of the things I wanted for Mother's day was to have a relaxing day! It's hard with two newborns but thanks to Chris he made it happen.

After Church we went out to eat with my family and Chris's mom and brother. We gave MiMi (my mom) and Grandma (Chris's mom) their presents. We forgot to take the camera in so we don't have any pictures. I made sure to get some pictures of the girls and I at home!

Kinley, she was a little tired of the hat because she had worn it all day!

Madelyn, who can be quite the mommy's girl
Us girls! Kinley on the left, Maddie on the right.

First day the girls wore shoes. Little Mary Janes.

We have been working on our yard. Since we moved into this house we have not done much of anything to the outside. Our yard leaves MUCH to be desired! After lunch My parents went with me to pick out flowers and stuff for our flower beds. They are a lot better than me at knowing what grows where. My Dad helped me plant some of the things I bought. It was such a pretty afternoon I brought the girls out in their bouncy seats! They LOVE listening to Poppy (my dad) talk to them. They have started smiling a lot in the last two weeks especially to him!

Kinley listening to her Poppy!

Madelyn having a turn!

She got distracted by her Daddy who was taking pictures!
Overall I could not have asked for a better Mother's Day!

I LOVE their little outfits and shoes. I am all about shoes on babies. They are the cutest thing even though they really are pointless. Glad your Mother's Day was good. It is a gift just to have a husband that helps out at night! They are so precious and love the smiles. Smiling babies help make the day!

I love the shoes. Where did you find them? We searched high and low for plain white sandals last weekend and never found any!! The Mary Janes are too cute!

Sounds like you had a fabulous first Mother's Day. Isn't it so much fun?! The girls are growing so fast and get cuter every day. I have to admit...those are some precious outfits on them (and LOVE the shoes.)

Where is the diaper bag from? I am expecting twins in early October and have been looking for a backpack style diaper bag.
