Happy New Year!

Katie trying to wrap up her sister.

Playing under the tree after all gifts were opened

Christmas Eve: Can we open just 1 mommy?
(they opened 1 :))

Posing in their "Our First Christmas" jammies on Christmas Eve
Those were some Christmas photos. I didn't think to take ANY! I am so upset. I didn't get any photos of anything. I was so wrapped up in the moment that it never occured to me to grab the camera. Oh well, at least the video camera was running the whole time.
Anyway, so it's that time again! Time for me to diet. The Holidays are over, I'm not longer pregnant so I need to get into shape. My small goal 20 pounds. I've gained 20 in the last few months, so that stinks. It's all in my belly and face. So my goal is 20 pounds. I've been looking into something to kick start the weight loss and I'm thinking of take a months worth of Slimquick. I'm not one for diet pills and I usually never take them (I hate taking anything...even tylenol) but I think if I get a jump start (the reviews were almost all positive) and I continue with cardio, I'll get a few pounds off and a positive attitude to get my but in gear.
I've also decided to start back up one of my favorite past times. My love for reading. I love historical romances. I like ones from the 1800's in London and I love the early 1900 westerns. Any suggestions? Anyway the first book I've decided to dig into is "P.S. I Love You" I saw the movie and cried through the whole freaking thing. I can't wait to read the book. I've been reading "Story Telling" by Tori Spelling for the last 2 months or so and I'm only half way through because I haven't made time for it but that's in the past. New Year, New Me :) .
The girls are doing great. Katie is starting to sit up, can hold her bottle for a short time, goes to sleep in a matter of seconds (by herself) and weighs a whopping 17.2 pounds! Karly says Mommmmmmmmma, Dada and makes a bunch of other sounds including "Ha ha" lol. At least thats what it sounds like. Lately, she cried at bedtime. Not sure why. She screams hysterically until we pick her up then she stops and smiles. She weighs 14.6 pounds! They are both getting so big!

Tina - thanks for your sweet comments on my blog - the girls are growing like weeds & are just adorable! :) About the online IF group, I'm not really sure why you can't get in, but I do know that some ppl were having a hard time accessing it (like nestiesarahkelly can't get in anymore at all)...I love keeping up with your blog, though!

Those pictures, and those baby girls, are totally precious!! Happy New Year, and good luck with your goals! If you haven't read "Pride & Prejudice," you should DEFINITELY read it. You will fall in love with Mr. Darcy, I guarantee it!

The girls are beautiful, as always.

I suggest anything by Jane Austen or Charlotte Bronte, or if you want something written more recently The Other Boleyn Girl.
