The flights down and back were pretty seamless, which was a comfort since I'm not a big fan of flying. After having a quick lunch at the Chili's in the airport we headed back to her house where we pretty much camped out for the weekend. We only left on Saturday morning, sans babies, for pedicures and some relaxation which we both needed. Later that day she had a 'sip and see' at her house for some of her friends and coworkers to come meet the babies. All of her friends were incredibly nice and I had a wonderful time meeting everyone.
Even though we didn't go to the beach or do any "typical" Florida activities I had such a wonderful and relaxing weekend. Despite a lot of crying and fussing (from the twins) I was surprisingly at ease. I guess when the chaos around you isn't really your chaos it's not as stressful. And it's hard to be stressed out when you have an adorable newborn sleeping on your chest for 45 minutes.
I have to give Kristen a ton of credit, she's doing an amazing job. Twins are no joke. Honestly it makes having one newborn seem like a piece of cake. They both always seem to cry and fuss at the same time and just trying to feed or bathe them both at the same time could be an Olympic sport and Kristen seems to have it all down pat. Just the thought of taking them both out to the grocery store or Target would send me into a panic and Kristen is already a pro maneuvering that double stroller around.
Even though Kristen and I only get to see other in person maybe once or twice a year we never have trouble picking up right where we left off. We were both able to vent about current life stressors and laugh and reminisce and I just wish we lived closer so that we could do it more often.
Not long after I arrived I had Miss Grey napping on me. I could have held her all weekend.
Another nap with Grey. Such a cuddle bug. Also, it only increased my desire for a little girl one day.
Mr. Wynn was also a fan of passing out on me. Such a little stud muffin. So hard to believe my little boy was ever this small.
I made many jokes about becoming sister-wives. We have this twin thing covered.
Much needed pedicures and girl time with one of my favorite people.
When I got home my two favorite guys (who spent the weekend at my in-laws beach house) greeted me at the airport. Hunter came running up to me yelling "MAMA" and holding flowers. And yes I almost burst into tears.
