If you don't like the weather in New England...

Wait ten minutes... right? This past weekend definitely brought us some crazy weather with temps hitting 90 degrees. Right now, I have the heat on (Author's note- if it were just me, I would certainly not have the heat on, but with two preemies at home, it's a necessary evil for just a little longer. The gas company must love us). Anyway, we were totally unprepared for such hot weather. Dave and I still have all of our summer clothes stored in the crawlspace in our house, and Mairead has no summer clothes since her clothes from last year certainly wouldn't fit her now! I did manage to scrounge up enough outfits to get us through the weekend while we were visiting in Lowell.

Mairead needed to update her Facebook status.

I had to run to Walmart and buy her an outfit because it was too hot for anything she has. She definitely noticed the temperature as she was very tired on Sunday. She never does anything like this, but she took her juice and was toddling around the house as she always does, but then she just lay down on the floor to rest. She was exhausted!

Jack and Ben have plenty of onesies, so it wasn't a problem to dress them. It was strange to see them without five layers of clothes, hats, and blankets!

Jack apparently did not like the heat. He is my more, shall we say, demanding, child. He always has something to say. We have several pictures now in which Ben is looking at Jack like, 'what's that guy's problem?'.

They are very comfy when they are together. Jack is passed out here, but Ben has a little half smile even though he is only half awake.

You can see that they are both getting much bigger- especially Jack (on left). When they are wearing only onesies, you can get a better idea of their size. They are looking more like 'real' babies and less like newborn preemies. I know that some of you have babies who were bigger at birth than mine are even now at almost 8 weeks- that is unbelievable to me!

Thanks to Theresa for these adorable outfits- they were perfect for a sports filled weekend with the Celtics in the playoffs and the first Sox-Yankees series of the season.

I love these pictures! I just washed all of Nathan's summer clothes too - we had some really warm weather too. Nathan also has those jammies that say "property of mom forever" too! I love them!
