So a new year has started and I am excited as ever. The twinkies are in full speed mode as always. X man is cutting in his final 4 teeth all at once. This is nothing new, he once had 8 coming in at once. Thumper is having one of her final four come in too. So there is a lot of drooling and whinyness happening in the household.
So since the last time I blogged we all took a trip to Atlanta to go to the Alpha Phi Omega national conventation that my wife and I are a part of. This was also the first major vacation that we took the twinkies on as well. The trip down there was great they all had a great time and they loved watching all of the Nick Jr. and Sprout classics like Yo Gabba Gabba, Wonder Pets, The Wiggles, and Dora. The twinkies I believe were also a big hit at the convention. X man was running all over the place and of course being the ladies' man that he is. Thumper took to being talkative and just being a chilled little girl. The twinkies got to see the Georgia Aquarium and the city of Atlanta. They really enjoyed it. The only major issue was driving home. About 30 to 45 mintues from home X man decided to have a major meltdown in the car. The only thing that was calming him down was me rubbing his head while I was driving. Luckily, I am tall enough to do both and keep my eyes on the road.
Since coming home the twinkies have increased their appetite a lot. They are either going through a huge growth spurt or just always hungry. Another first for the twinkies was that I was able to take them to their first NCAA wrestling match.. They loved it and where able to cheer on my friend. The kids actually stop what they are doing and just watch him wrestle. The funniest thing is when we get home for the meets. X man decides he is going to try out his new found love of wrestling on his sister. She doesn't care because she wrestles him right back. I think I am creating some bad habits.
I am really looking forward to the things that are to come with my toddler twinkies. I am just ready for this coldness to end so I can take them out for longer walks and to actually enjoy going to the park and playing with them finally.
Time to get off the computer and clean some more of the house. I will keep eveyone posted on the goings on here. Feel free to comment and follow me. I am on twitter at www.twitter.com/twinsanitydad
