Our First Christmas!


We couldn't wait for Santa to come.  We were very good all week!
We took a bath and drank our bottles all by ourselves.
Then, on Christmas Eve, Grandma & Grandpa Thorn came and took us to church!


Grandpa Thorn built us a real wooden toy chest, and Grandma gave us a whole bunch of fun things!


Our favorite present from Santa was a Radio Flyer rocking horse.  It was just what we wanted! 

 
We also got dollies, a piano, a kitchen set, Pooh bears, and lots more!
We decided that we really like Christmas!

 

 


When Christmas was over, Mommy & Daddy took us out to play in the snow!


When our little noses turned red, they knew it was time to take us back inside to warm up!

Happy New Year to all our friends!

Hmmm..............Don or Amy?

Top 10 Ways to Tell if You Are a Sleep-Deprived New Parent
(stupid things Don and Amy did after the twins were born!)

If you are a new parent....Take the following test!

You Know you're sleep deprived if you can identify with any one of the following......

10. You take a gallon of the expensive formula out of the fridge to fill a single bottle and you leave it sitting out on the shelf overnight to spoil

9. You scoop the coffee into the coffee maker and add water.  As the coffee drips and percolates into the carafe, you notice the cup that holds the filter is still sitting on the counter.  You finally get a chance to clean up the coffee grounds a few days later.

8. You send your spouse to bed to get a couple of hours sleep and you take the late evening feeding shift.  Your baby sits next to you on the sofa on her Boppy pillow, still quiet for a few moments longer.  You think about how it will soon be your turn to finally stretch out on the bed and take a brief nap.  Suddenly, your spouse wakes you up and panics at the sight of a baby crushed silently under you as you are slumped over sleeping on top of her, trying to steal her Boppy pillow.

7. You mix up a gallon of expired formula and feed it to your babies, then wonder why they they won't stop vomiting all day.

6. You put ten pacifiers in a highly accessible places so you'll have no trouble finding one when you need it......and then you can't find one when you need it because you don't remember 
what you did with any of them.

5. You can't figure out how to take the outfit off your baby's body because 4 hours ago you put in on backwards and all the snaps are in the back......How did you even do that?

4. You put a clean diaper on your baby but you forget to take off the dirty one first.....and your child's pediatrician is the first person to notice.

3. You pack your baby safely into her car seat then back out of the garage and crash into your mother's car parked innocently in your driveway.

2. You start feeding your baby during the night on the edge of the bed. You're so tired you start to lean back onto the pillows. Your next conscious moment comes 3 hours later when the baby is hungry for her next feeding. The bottle from the previous feeding is empty.....but you have no idea who held the bottle for your newborn while you slept.

........and the #1 way to confirm that you are a sleep deprived parent:


1. You want to sterilize the babies' pacifiers so you put them in a sauce pan and cover them with water. You put the pan on the stove and wait so they can boil for 30 seconds. You walk away for a second then wake up to realize that there is a terrible smoke filling the house. Somehow over half an hour has passed and the pacifiers have been reduced to a pool of smoldering melted plastic burned to the bottom of the pan.

 

Can you guess which stupid things Don did and which ones Amy did?  E-mail your guesses or comments to: sleepdeprivedparent@vallonesworld.com

"Posing for pictures is hard work!  Can we just get some sleep now?"
