The weekend before last, my parents came to visit the grandbabies, and my mom stayed through the week to help me, because our amazing doula, Pam, was going out of town. While both of my parents were here, Jason and I went on our first official date. We went to Thaiphoon Bistro in Downtown Raleigh. Dinner was great, and then we went to the Skinny Dip, which is a lot like Pinkberry. We had a wonderful time with just the two of us, even though we did spend a lot of time talking about Miles and Vivienne.

My father had to leave that Monday, but Mom stayed through until Thursday to help me with the babies. We have to say a huge "thank you" to Grandma for holding babies, cooking us dinner (she made my favorite spaghetti from when I was a little girl), doing laundry and just being an all-around stellar grandmother.
Just last week, while the babies were nursing, Vivienne started staring at Miles. Then she started talking and cooing at him! It was so sweet to watch her talking to her brother. They have been holding hands while they nurse for a long time now, but it's fun to see them actually start to try to communicate with each other.
The Sunday before last, I finally wore normal jeans to church. For the longest time, I've still been wearing maternity shorts and jeans because my hips were way too big to get into my old jeans (and I refused to buy jeans a size larger). It's nice to finally be able to wear some of my normal clothes again. I had major muffin top with my regular jeans on, but I earned that muffin top having two beautiful babies, so I'll take it. =) I still need to pack away my maternity clothes someplace. I'm still holding on to them so that I can wear them
