Catching Up

Let's play catch up, with the help of the bullet:
  • I'm afraid 52 Project could be renamed Meredith's Instagram: The Abridged Version
  • I think it's time for another Day in the Life!  I'm not sure how much has changed since the last one I recorded, but I really enjoyed capturing a typical day for Jude & Sloane and would like to do it again.
  • Twin Talk is about to celebrate ONE YEAR - wahoo!  I recently started accepting sponsorships on the blog, which (in my eyes) is a big step!  Speaking of big... Big giveaway coming up.  Big.  HUGE.  Are you following yet (Website | Instagram | Facebook)?  Now is a good time.  :)
  • I taught my first photography class!  My second class is next week and I absolutely love it.  If I could teach one a month I'd be thrilled.  Unfortunately, I don't have that many friends so this may be my final class - ha.  I love watching fellow moms get excited about using their "fancy cameras" to take pictures of their kids. 
  • Jude and Sloane are best friends.  Give the kids a dang necklace already.  I'm amazed how loving they are toward one another. They're also incredibly empathetic.  I know we'll have screaming and yelling one day, but for now they just get along great and it's so refreshing to watch.  He makes her laugh and she loves taking care of him.  
  • That being said, they have plenty of naughty moments.  Neither are afraid to throw a tantrum in the middle of Target (Sloane) or the middle of the parking lot (Jude).  The other day it was both (surround sound - lovely) and the Target lady said, "Well you're having an interesting morning."  Thank you.  Thank you so much.  
  • Jude calls himself Jude and does not have a name for Sloane.  Sloane calls herself "MEEEE!" and calls him Cece.  We have NO idea where she came up with the name Cece but it is equal parts hilarious and weird.  
  • We love McKinney.  Love it.  
  • Today Michael and I completed our first Ikea hack - we hung two curtain wires in Jude & Sloane's playroom and are using them to display their artwork.  A toddler gallery wall if you will.  I will post a picture one day.  My guess is it will be in the next seven months.
I think that's enough for now.  Dear ol' blog, I miss you.  

52 Project | 8/52

52 Project | Week 8
February 15-21, 2015

Once he was feeling better, Jude and I celebrated Valentine's Day a few days late!

Handsome like his dad!

#judeandsloanessleepjournal had its craziest sleep position yet!
Fun Memory: I was reading a book to Jude and noticed he was saying all sorts of words.  His vocab has really taken off in the last month!  I started listening to the words he was saying and realized he was finishing each sentence for me... before I could get to it.  I decided to test him so I read each sentence/phrase and didn't say the last word.  He happily finished most of them for me.  Way to go, Jude!!!

52 Project | 7/52

52 Project | Week 7
February 8-14, 2015

Tiny dancer

Bless his heart.  A very sick Jude. 

Love, Hugs & Rock 'n' Roll!

Fun Memory:  I'm struggling with this one as sweet Jude was SICK all week.  He ended up having a nasty virus, two ear infections, and a viral rash.  I spent so much time taking care of him that poor Sloane didn't get much attention.  Michael took Jude to the doctor on Thursday night (one of three doctors visits) so I dressed Sloane up in her leotard & crown and we had some much needed girl time.  She loves to twirl and stand on her tip toes!

52 Project | Week 6
February 1-7, 2015

First trip to the dentist!  No cavities and great patients! 

Jude got a big boy haircut and aged 12 years

The Haynes girls love their sunglasses

Sweet girl

My heart

Fun Memory: It was really warm over the weekend so we decided to put the kiddos in their umbrella strollers and walk to the new snowcone place.  It ended up being a disaster of a trip - lots of roads without sidewalks (we chose to walk in the grass vs. the street), 30 minute wait to get our snowcones in a shop with no air conditioning... etc.  And as we were walking back (in the wilderness) we couldn't stop laughing.  Absolutely ridiculous  We had a blast.

52 Project | 5/52

52 Project | Week 5
January 25 - 31, 2015
LOTS of pictures this week!
Born to be wild...

Bathtime is the best time

Sweet Sloaney

 Jude the Dude

Jude sandwich!

This was a weird day (they napped at 10:30) but we still had a blast.

Fun Memory:  I'm not sure I can call it fun, but Jude & Sloane had their last week of MDO at Bright Beginnings in Coppell (we were on a wait list in McKinney and two spots recently opened up).  I know it's only two days a week but I am so grateful for Mrs. Cheri and Mrs. Katie and what they taught my babies.   Watching your kids love (and be loved by) others is the sweetest gift.  We will all miss them!
