First dinner out!

I have to say I was surprised that Royce thought the idea would even be fun, lunch out with the girls, out in public, in a REAL restaurant! We've been trying to get out to eat since the girls were about a month old but something always came up and it was never a good time. A friend of mine in CT has twin daughters and she talks all the time about eating out with her girls and I figured if she can do it - so can we.

We used to eat at Pizza Nea almost every week. It's a quaint little pizza place on East Hennepin in NE Minneapolis. I was delighted when we arrived that it was busy and loud. I figured this way if we had a freak out no one would even notice. Just to be safe we picked a table set way back in the corner but we're happy to report things went off without a hitch. It was fun and I think we might actually attempt it again soon!

Pillow Talk

Royce and I often wonder what we did with all of our extra time we had before the twins were born. Who would have known we could survive on just a few hours of sleep at a time! We could have been so productive, we could have been having so much more fun!
Rasa keeps our family awake most nights. She sleeps in spurts and wakes loudly. Adia's getting better about sleeping through Rasa's cries which is good. Last night I awoke to Rasa babbling in my ear, "Ah ba ba ba ba" while moving her tiny jaw up and down. The glow of the moon through the cracks in the blinds lit up the room just enough for me to see her precious face. It's these things, the sweet memories of 2am pillow talk with Rasa, that make the daytime delirium so worth it!

Rasa and Adia were born on January 2nd, 2009. I've wanted to set up blog for them since they arrived however as many parents of twins will tell you, there's never enough time in the day!
As we approach the 8 month mark some of the things I expected to be easier are (some harder) and we're all still sleep deprived but we know we will not only survive this but enjoy every painstaking minute of it ;-)
