Last week B and I returned from our European trip at 4am and the first thing we did was snatch up our sleeping babies and brought them to our bed so we could snuggle them. Boy we missed them! The girls did great while we were gone – so great, in fact, that Ellie asked gramma “When are my mom and dad going to go on a trip again?” Hahaha!
I thoroughly expected the girls to be little pills when we got back (I mean, that’s how it usually works after parents take a trip sans kids, right?) but they’ve been pretty good so far! We threw off their schedules a bit so Ellie is literally running around in circles right now at 9pm – it’s kind of exhausting to watch, really. 😉
The best part about coming home has been watching these two little sisters interact. Addie is old enough now that she and Ellie play together well. They know exactly how to make each other laugh, and are constantly twirling and tackling each other. Ha! More often than not it ends in tears, but there’s a good amount of laughter in there, too. 😉
The bummer part about coming home? We all caught colds! (Oh and the jetlag, always so much fun 😉 We have had sniffling noses and coughs all around. We’ve been using JOHNSON’S® hand and face wipes frequently to wipe off little noses (much to Addie’s dismay of course. You’d think we were pulling teeth every time we wipe her nose or give her some medicine!) We’re long time fans of JOHNSON’S® and these wipes are one of my new favorites for the winter season (and they’re the perfect size to keep in my diaper bag!)
Other cold weather musts? NEW JOHNSON’S® HEAD-TO-TOE™ extra moisturizing baby cream (for dry winter skin!), DESITIN® multi-purpose ointment, and JOHNSON’S baby soothing vapor bath – perfect for helping runny noses!
So happy to be home with my babies, again! (And of course, more photos of our trip coming soon!) HAPPY THANKSGIVING WEEK! xoxo
