We went shopping at a little boutique today... I know 2 two year olds in a boutique- good idea. Annabelle needed a new silky and the only places to sell "Little Giraffe" are over priced stores where the "help" leaves a little to be desired. Since I didn't look like I could put the entire store on my Black card the sales woman looked at me like I was a rodent. After staring at us for a few minutes, she didn't offer to help us, she simply asked me if I was the Nanny. When I said "no" and giggled a little bit she looked kind of confused and asked if they were mine. I told her, yes, they were my children and promptly left the store (after spending over $40 on a blanket that measures exactly one square foot). I ask, who is the crazy one? I am sure at some point having people ask rude questions won't be such a big deal. But for now , it is!

"This present is blue, it must not be for me"
Annabelle tearing into the presentsOkay, maybe two isn't considered a "big birthday" by most- but we had a blast. On the kiddos actual birthdays I couldn't help feeling a little sad for their birthmoms. A day so filled with joy and excitement for us must have been marked with sadness for them. As I tell myself over and over when I look at their beautiful faces, God must give them a peace and understanding that their sweet babies are loved to pieces.
We had a big party which Annabelle ate up!! Andrew was not so thrilled, could have been the vomiting and explosive diarrhea. Talk about "Mother of the Year"- here is some ibuprofen, go eat cake and have fun with your friends! We had 12 1-3 year olds at our house for games and painting and cupcakes! We did have a great time, and I was reminded once again how blessed we are to have such amazing children. Although, now that they are two I am defiantly looking forward to bringing home another baby... After trying unsuccessfully for over an hour, no pics of Andrew! Just picture lots of crying and hugging his dad. I will post later if the "blogger" allows!
