It's the little things in life... x2

by Eugene G in ,

Before the wedding season officially starts, I'm enjoying the little things in life, especially at home with the family. From being able to play with the kids, from going to the park almost everyday, taking our oldest to school and have his little brother tag along just because he likes to be in the car and look out the window, to falling asleep with both twins while the twin girl picks my watch with her tiny fingers mumbling her nightly tunes and realizing it's her dad... I too fall asleep with them sometimes. 

Here are a few random iPhone snaps from the last couple months:

Same outfits, different kids, 4 years apart

The picture is of our boys (with their mom), the one on the left is of Sam in 2012. The one on the right is of Timmy this year.  They're even wearing the same clothes for the most part... and you can kind of tell they are brothers. That's such a perfect age, it just goes by too perfectly fast.

Oh and you can totally tell which photo was taken on iPhone 4 and which one on iPhone 6+

Two are better than one...

Before the wedding season starts officially, I'm enjoying our twinkies as much as possible. They turned 8 months old today, in reality they're 6 months old (if they came out on time and not early). I wish they stayed this young for another 6-8 months, this stage is perfect in many many ways :))

Update on our twins...

by Eugene G

As you know time changes things, it especially is good at changing people. Our twins have gotten bigger, accomplished some developmental milestones, can "almost" sit on their own and have started to put themselves to sleep by cooing or just making long noises with their lips or tongue... as long as they are rocked or on a swing of course. Milana, the girl is doing better... better than we thought she would, her brother is doing great. The best thing about this stage of their life is how they react and laugh, they don't care who looks or smiles at them, they just gleam back with that newborn smile, priceless.


Life with newborn twins...

by Eugene G

As I sit down and feed our 7.5 lb little munchkin at 3:45am, then put him on my chest and almost fall asleep, I'm thankful for him and his sister... who isn't home yet. It's been the most fun, the most busy and the hardest year yet, but I do my best to enjoy the good moments so much that the not so good moments fade away. As I try to intake and enjoy every little and not so little moment, I realize that soon he'll be needing big boy' clothes, will ask for toys, then a cell phone. Kids grow up so fast that it's hard to keep up sometimes with their ever expanding appetites and changes overall. Only then I hear his "happy-in-sleep" giggles and wake up from my semi-nap that only lasted a minute or two and return back to reality... for now the money for his cell phone, will be used to buy him something more useful. All of our experiences will at least double, when the other twin comes home, and you know what? I'm actually looking forward to it, very much so in fact.
