Weekly Happenings – Cousins, WLOS & Baby Giraffes

Hey guys!

This week has gone by so fast!  The Hub’s Mom (Bobby) came to visit and help with the babies.  I loved having her and am SO appreciative of the help.  It was so nice to be able to sneak away for daily uninterrupted workouts and showers.  She even helped with them overnight and I got to catch up on sleep.  Hunter is also finally doing a lot better on sleeping after last week’s rolling over all night fiasco.  Now I’m just waiting on Jackson to do the same thing!

The Hubs is working days, nights and weekends until April 15th and we are counting down the days until tax season is OVER.  I can’t wait to get him back.  The boys are really fun to be around these days and I know he’s missing them as well.

The babies hit 20 weeks this week and are really mastering tummy time.  Don’t they look like they are having a meeting of great minds?

They’ve officially grown out of some of their baby stuff and we jumped from tiny hooded towels to these giraffe ones and I want to cry tears of joy every time we use them.  They look like such big boys!

They are just so stinkin’ cute and I can’t believe they are mine.

Bobby and I took advantage of the weather and took the babies for several walks.  The boys love going outside and usually fall asleep for a quick nap at the end.

We even took the playmat outside and had the boys enjoy the weather.  I have full on spring fever.

I didn’t get any pictures but Bobby and I also had TWO successful lunches out with the babies which was a huge confidence booster for me.  I’ve been afraid to take them anywhere.  I’m hoping once tax season is over the Hubs and I can take them places so we all get a little more used to it.

On Sunday my SIL Megan and her family came up from Columbia.  It was so fun to have the cousins together for the second time in just a few weeks.

Here’s Bobby and her grandbabies!  She has five more at home in Pittsburgh.

Tuesday and Wednesday I spent a lot of time preparing for another TV segment taping at WLOS with ALDI.  I prepped an Easter meal and this is how it turned out!  I’ll be sharing all the recipes from the segment a week from Monday here.  If you are local the segment airs the Friday before Easter on the Carolina Spotlight and 12:55.

While I was there I caught up with some old friends!

It was such a joy to see my old co-workers.  I miss them so much!

In the middle of all this, I also had some studio photos taken of the boys. I didn’t have time to download them yet but I’ll get them ready for next week.

It’s been a hectic week filled with so much joy.  My Dad is actually coming to visit today to help with the boys while the Hubs is working.  I’m expecting this upcoming week and weekend to be just as full!

I hope y’all had a great week too.  Let me know what you’ve been up to in the comments.

Love, Julie

    I’m looking forward to the segment on WLOS. I’m happy that you’re settling in with the twins as I cannot imagine how hectic your schedule has become with their splendid arrival. What joy! Cherish every moment as they grow and change. I too am enjoying Spring as my schedule permits with finishing a novel (due out before Christmas this year) and a full-time job. I wish a pleasant and warm weekend with your beautiful family!

    The boys are getting so big! And so stinking’ cute! Would love to know the conversation going on on the playmat. They grow up too fast! Can’t wait to see your cooking segment on WLOS.

    Awwwww your babies are so cute and handsome too! I so enjoy seeing and reading all about them. Thanks for sharing the boys with us.

    I’m looking forward to watching your Aldi segment since you turned us into loving Aldi.

    Hope you have a good weekend.

    Sounds like a great week! The picture of Bobby and 4 of her grandkids kills me because all the babies have a very similar facial expression. It’s like they agreed to it beforehand.

    Enjoy the time with your Dad. Just 10 more days until tax season is over!!

    Those boys! So adorable. I can’t stand how cute they are. I am so glad you are getting some sleep and having family come to help out has to be a wonderful gift during this busy time for your husband. I am looking forward to your recipes and your Easter spread! Have a great weekend.
