Counting Down to Spring

We love each and every second that we spend with Charlie and Lily. But that's not to say that our lives haven't begun to seem like the movie Groundhog Day - when you're not really allowed to leave the house, things tend to get a bit monotonous. It's okay though - February is almost over and we can almost smell spring. Soon we'll be out and about with Charlie and Lily, and then there will really be no stopping them! Until we can see all of you in person, here are some more pics :)

Nikki, a former student of Joe's, gave the babies tie-dyed onesies. Charlie is lovin' his!
Lily is not so sure that this look is for her.
Lily was a lucky little lady on Valentine's Day. She told Daddy that she wanted a unicorn (actually, she asked for 3 unicorns) and Daddy delivered! He went to the Build-A-Bear Workshop all on his own and built Lily a beautiful unicorn he named Miracle. He even gave Miracle a bath in a sparkly tub and brushed her mane before bringing her home from Build-A-Bear, just for Lily. He also got her two more tiny unicorns to make 3! Lily loves them all, but she loves her Daddy the most!
Joe also got Miracle a special shirt made.
Charlie got some gifts too, from his Valentine, Mommy. One of his special gifts was to go on a "date" with Mommy to Crackers's house. Charlie loved soaking up all the attention - just Charlie to get all the snuggles from Mommy and Crackers!

I know EXACTLY what you mean! I am loving, loving my time at home with our babies, but every day is definitely a repeat of the one before. We have 3 1/2 feet of snow....I'll be happy to just take a walk! Glad you all had a great Valentine's!

They are so adorable! I love that Joe even washed Miracle before bringing her home. Joe = awesome preemie Daddy!
Soon all this being at home stuff will be a distant memory!
