Adventures in Babysitting

This weekend Chad and I babysat the twins while their Mom and Dad had some much-deserved time away. We stayed at their house and watched them from Friday afternoon until Sunday morning. We had a blast with them. They are getting so big and doing the funniest things everyday.

Their parents left us the car so we could take them out while we had them and on Friday evening we decided to take them to eat some Mexican food. The girls were great the whole time, we kept them occupied with little baby rice snacks but we did have to make sure everything was out of their arms reach. We must've been quite a site with the two girls in their highchairs on two sides of the table and Chad and I huddled on the opposite sides with all of our chips, food, and menus crowded together. We had fun though and they got us our food fast.

The girls slept all through the night all weekend and kept us laughing and on our toes. Chad was really sweet with them. They are his cousins but he doesn't see them a whole lot so it was good for the girls to get more used to him. They were his little buddies by Sunday, it was really cute.

We forgot to take the camera, so I have no pictures of our weekend, but it was definitely memorable anyway. Lily is now walking and she is so proud of herself. Lexi and Lily chase each other all over and have so much fun together. It is really sweet to see them play together except when Lily decides to steal Lexi's toy and poor Lexi gets so sad. They are learning how to share at a young age though which is great! I was definitely sad to say goodbye today but luckily I have an amazing job which lets me spend time with them every week! Lily and Lexi have a big day coming up... their 1st Birthday on October 20th!! Their party is a couple of short weeks away.. the day after Chad's birthday on the 16th. Can't wait to see them turn 1- wow the time has flown by!!!!

How fun! You have a wonderful job. Sounds like this weekend was enough to hold over the baby fever for awhile. Right?
