Weekend Excitement

Weekends have been completely redefined now.  Before the babies, we would often go on runs and hikes, go for weekend excursions or take on some home improvement project.  Now, our weekends involve playing on a blanket on the floor, changing diapers, laughing with Miles and Vivienne, watching Vivienne learn to use the jumperoo (her legs are like little springs!), changing diapers, wiping spit-up (we do this quite often), singing silly songs, changing diapers... but somehow this is a much, much more fulfilling life than our previous adventures. 

Here are some pics from this weekend.

She has the sweetest smile.
It's great to wake up to these smiling faces.
Daddy reads her a bedtime story.
This afternoon, Miles was extremely fussy, and we had a hard time getting him to calm down.  Usually, when he fusses, I can feed him and he'll immediately calm down.  Well, this time he ate like usual, but then started crying as soon as he was finished.  We tried putting him down in his crib, but he was having none of that.  So I laid down in bed with him and nursed him to sleep around 4:30.  We both fell asleep and had a great hour-long nap snuggling together.  Then I woke up and realized that I was going to have a hard time sneaking away from him, because he was leaning against me and using me as a sort of body pillow.  If I moved, he would roll over onto his tummy, which would probably wake him up. 

Eventually, I figured a way to get untangled from him, and he just continued to sleep right through bedtime.  We're hoping that he doesn't wake up tomorrow morning at 5 am bright-eyed and bushy tailed (because Mommy and Daddy certainly won't be!).  We went up to check on him tonight, and Chloe is curled up right next to him.  It's the sweetest thing.  We turned on the bathroom light and took a long exposure to get this photo:

Chloe has found herself a new nap-mate.  =)
