these two.








How sweet are these two? 

I cannot even put into words how much I have loved being home snuggling them both the past 2 days. Aiden has entered this new phase of giving me “unprompted” compliments. It is so sweet & so unexpected. Today he told me that I had cute ears, an awesome tshirt and that he was not sad anymore because I was home with him. Then before bed he asked if he could snuggle me & told me that if I held him forever he would be so happy.

oh boy. my heart

You know,  for someone who is normally on the go constantly, bedrest has made me feel a bit lazy. 
It’s a very strange feeling for me.

I keep thinking of everything I should be out or up doing.
It’s good though. 
Not only good for little Apple but good to slow down once in awhile.

Plus I get to snuggle these two beauties extra which is my absolute favorite!

    I tell you what, if I ever switch from acting to being an agent, I am fully going to want to sign these beauties! They are naturals! [Don't worry, totally joking! I'm stuck as an actor forever 😉 But I wouldn't be surprised if they're asked to model at some point!] x

    Your such a good little mama Casey 😀 It always makes me cry when you talk about cuddling your babies. Probably because that's one of my favorite memories from my own childhood. My mama always held me and cuddled me. There is no place safer then your mothers arms when your little. So happy your home sweet friend. Love you Xoxo

    Wonderful pictures. Such cutie pies. Love the one with a binky in each hand. My granddaughter used to sleep with three. One in each hand and a spare. She would switch them out during the night in her sleep.
