Summer Lovin'

So, I got a new 50mm f1.4 lens for my Pentax K200D and I love it! Did I mention that I LOVE it? It's a great portrait lens and it also takes amazing images up close with the creamiest bokeh I've ever seen! Here are a few pics that we took on Saturday when we went to the Burlington Waterfront for a belated Father's Day outing.

Happy Fathers Day Wesley!

How do you spell TROUBLE?

If this doesn't spell trouble, I don't know what does!

If I don't make it as a doctor, I can always join Cirque de Soleil ...

... and I could be a garbage man!

Would you like some hot water Mum?

Oh, was I not supposed to touch the blinds?

A Taste of the Tropics!

Their beautiful birthday cake made by my talented friend Louise

If you were looking for a Hawaiian First Birthday Luau, look no further! We threw the boys one heck of a party! We got into our best tropical outfits, decorated the house with palm trees and lei's, and ate the biggest Hawaiian feast we've ever had! Ever! It was such a fun day and we were so happy to share it with our closest family and friends!

The boys had the most fun eating their birthday cake. Two birthday cakes in a week! I know what you must be thinking ... yes, they were spoiled rotten (and I was a busy mama making their cakes and icing from scratch), but you only turn 1 once, right?!! And man, did they ever crash after all that sugar!

Happy First Birthday Boys!

One Year Ago Today

It was one year ago today that we experienced one of the best moments we'll ever have in our lives. I can't believe that it was a year ago today that our two beautiful boys were born. They were so tiny. So beautiful. So sleepy!!! Oh, I miss those days! We were so sleep deprived, feeding them round the clock. And we didn't know what we were doing at first, but we didn't care. We knew we were taking extra special care of our precious boys. We were so in love. Our twin miracles ...

We're in the same spot that I sat with the boys who were only 32 weeks at the time

We've savoured the past. We cherished our babies and held them tight. But now, it's time to let them go - just a little. To hold their hands as they learn to walk. To let them explore and thrive as little boys. Our boys aren't wee babies anymore. They're developing their own little personalities, which is so amazing to see, but they'll always be my babies, no matter what. And I'll always love them more than life itself.

Is it even possible to be this cute? Apparently so!

Happy Birthday Jackson & Jameson!

This is just a taste of what's to come ... literally!

It's never easy to say goodbye to someone you love. We will miss you Big Noni! May you rest in peace.

Happy Birthday Thomas!

Paul & Jess with their birthday boy

The boys and I celebrated Thomas' first birthday party today! We had a blast! It was the first time I've been out with them alone since moving them into "big boy" seats. Thankfully, Paul was able to help me bring one of them inside. It's not easy having two babies who can't walk yet.

The boys had so much fun playing with the other babies who were invited and with all the toys that were at their disposal, like the stereo, the remote control, and the fridge. And did they ever make themselves at home once they caught sight of Thomas' fridge garage. They didn't fight. Nope. Not at all. Not my sweet innocent boys! ;) All in all, they were well behaved and handled the crowd of people who wanted to say hi (and touch their hair) with grace! They even acquired a couple girlfriends by the end of the day. Jackson stole Elina's toy and shoved it in his mouth. Jameson pulled Annie's hair. If that ain't love, I don't know what is! Wes joined us for the last hour of the party, just in time for the birthday cake! Unfortunately, he missed us singing "Happy Birthday" to Thomas ... three times (don't ask). Then we headed home to feed the boys and put them down for their nap. They slept for 2 hours, so the party must have pooped them out! Why can't they nap like that every day!

Calling Moon and Moon

I am finally starting to feel like myself again. Having a baby, let alone twins, can really mess with your head. Your body changes significantly. People look at me as a mother first. Not a woman. And that's sometimes hard for me to swallow.

But I'm finally starting to feel like ME again. My pre preg clothes are now falling off my backside, which is so exciting! I was able to get a pair of jeans off that I haven't worn in a couple years with it buttoned and zipped up (you don't wanna know hahah). Oh and I bought a summer dress from H&M the other day for my ridiculously skinny sister, only to find out that the dress fit me just as well. It's about effin time!

I almost forgot to mention my stalker. I was out by myself and this random guy told me that I was "very lucky" and walked off. I have no idea what he was talking about, but it made me feel good in a creepy kinda way! Anyway, the point of this rant is that I've realised that I can still have the life I once had. I can still feel good. I just need to make the effort to get out there and enjoy life and the people in it, while appreciating what I have in front of me!
