Bye bye daycare

So I have been MIA due to being overwhelmed with finding a new daycare/nanny. Our daycare is over on kids so we have had to find a new place for the boys. I am beyond upset about all of but am learning to make lemonade out of the lemons that I was handed from this daycare. So I got on care.com and found a great nanny to come to our house- she is 19 and lives 10 blocks away. All was good until I got a text from her telling me that she got into hair school and couldn't accept the position. So back to square one- looking again- thank goodness there was another girl who was interested. She is 20 and lives about the same distance from us. She came over last Saturday and met us and the boys and seems to be a good fit. She is coming over on Saturday for a "trial run."

I pray that this girl will love the boys like we do. Care for them like we do...protect them like we do. I am nervous to bring someone new into their lives as a mom my biggest fear is someone hurting them or doing something nasty to them, so this has been a BIG change. I pray that she works out...please pray too!!!


The boys and their cousins

Steve's older sister (by 13 months) Lauren, has three kids- Max who is 5, Caroline who is 4 and Mikey who is almost 3- they are darling kids- we went to the lake with all of the kids and our boys- Steve's dad took this shot of all 5 of the kids! So cute....

Boys' new hiding spot

So daycare sent me these photos- kills me! The boys love to play and hide under the saucers, so cute!


8 months old!!

The babes are 8 months old! Holy cow....we are having such fun. Each month is getting better and better....Luke is pulling up on everything and Will is crawling everywhere! We are just loving this stage....


Seperation Anxiety???

So today was like any other daycare drop off- get Luke out and take him to the door, then get Will and take him to the door- we do in home daycare, so I ring the bell and they get the boys in their carriers. So I am coming up the stairs with Will and Michelle, our daycare provider, is holding Luke who has HUGE tears in his eyes- then looks at me and starts to cry again...I put Will in the carrier in the hallway of the front door and he starts screaming= like can't catch your breath crying...Michelle says "welcome separation anxiety" I get in the car and almost start to cry- I call Steve and tell him what happened and tell him to get a HUGE raise so that I can stay at home with the boys- that is not going to happen by the way....so it is weighing heavy on my heart then I get a text from Michelle with Will in his jumper smiling away! Luke in the saucer smiling!! Thank you Michelle- I needed that...these boys have made my heart expand about a million times in size. So in love with them....
