Plain or Peanut?

More than 2 1/2 years ago, right after Joe and I decided that we wanted to start trying to conceive, we took a little overnight trip to Atlantic City to celebrate my birthday. While there we stopped in an awesome candy store on the boardwalk called It's Sugar, where I came across the most adorable yellow M&M onesie. I'm a pretty superstitious person and ordinarily I never would have made a purchase for a baby we hadn't even conceived yet, but I really just couldn't resist the onesie! So I snatched it up and brought it home, and come the same time the following year we still didn't have a baby to put in it. Five months after that though, we learned we were expecting triplets. But then there was the problem of only having one M&M onesie. My MIL was kind enough to stop back into It's Sugar on a trip to AC and two more onesies - a green and a red. The onesies were size 6 months, so even though Charlie and Lily have been with us since June I had to bide my time before I could finally use them. I knew Charlie was destined to be the yellow peanut M&M, but I had to choose between green and red for Lily. I finally decided on red, since she is the perfect foil to our mellow Charlie - the plain M&M to his peanut. So there you have it - our two little M&Ms! I think they're pretty sweet ;)

Got love? Charlie does!
Happy Lily, rocking her pretty pink hat.

Simply priceless!! I love the little onesies and the kiddos in them. BTW, we are actually real neighbors in real life. I found your blog many months ago and have been following you, and just realized we are in the same town. Small world.

So cute! Love those onesies!

We are going to AC the first weekend March for the high school wrestling tournament on the boardwalk and It's Sugar has been on my list of things to do since I saw it on a Food Network show.

The M&M onesies are so cute, but Lily in the pink hat is just too much. Her little smile is just adorable.

Hey there, just wanted to tell you that one of our 28-weeker twins has the same eating problem as your little one. His is actually more severe and he stopped gaining weight from it (we are currently NGing him at home). I will let you know if we discover anything that helps him! It's a really tough problem. For what it's worth, his barium swallow was completely normal. He had a pretty easy NICU course too for being so early.

My litle M&M's... By the size of those thighs it looks like the two of them like M&M's... Pretty soon pumpkins - you'll be eating them.
Of course the pictures are adorable - just look at the subjects. I love Mommy and Lily together - and that hat is great.
I love you sweetpeas...
Stay warm...

All My Love, Auntie :) xoxoxoxo

I don't think they could possibly be any cuter! Love, love the onesies! I couldn't help but picture little Annaleigh as well, your little green M&M, watching out for Charlie and Lily with a smile on her beautiful face. You're both doing a wonderful job, and your joy in parenting really shines through in your posts!

I love the onsies! We bought a yellow one when I was pregnant with my oldest daughter. Her nickname was peanut while I was carrying her b/c we knew she was a girl, but everyone else didn't.

Love the M&M onesies. Did I ever tell you that I grew up very near the town M&M's are made (Hackettstown NJ)? My mom was the secretary to the president of M&M/Mars for many years, and my older sister still works there. During college I worked in the factory as a fork truck driver and had access to as many M&M's as I wanted! It was awful. Anyway, Charlie and Lily make the perfect advertisement for M&M's.... you just want to gobble them up!
