1. Sarah at twins + 2 more = 4 girls is a real life friend! She has been such an encouragement during my pregnancy and in the time since the girls have arrived. She is always ready to lend a helping hand. Thanks Sarah! I am so glad God sent you my way.

2. Lisa at Goldberg Baby Blog is another friend I have gotten to know from The Nest. She had 2 twin girls a couple of weeks before me. I love reading about how her girls are doing. She is another nestie that I know I would be friends with in real life.

3. Aimee at The Barbagallo Twins is yet another Nestie friend. She also had twin girls about a month before mine. I love to watch her girls and what they are up to. We have a lot in common. We decorated the girls' room in the same ladybug decor. We both have an Abby, whose middle name is named after our mom. I really wish we lived closer together because I know we would be friends.

4. Jennifer at The Foster Family is also a Nestie. She is having twin girls, too!! But she is still pregnant and on bedrest. She needs a smile award right about now so I am giving this one to her :-)

5. Deb at Postcards from the Edge always makes me smile. She is also my number 1 comment leaver! Thanks Deb!!

I have to leave another one because I can't stand it!!
6. Katie at The Twinskis deserves this award also and dang it I am going to give it to her as well. She has twin girls also (and no I am not partial to twin girls...well...maybe a little). She is also a Nestie and a good friend. She is one of the nicest people. I love to watch how her girls are growing. I can see how my girls are going to be in about a year or so.

There are so many others I would like to have given this to. I hope I get to pass others on in the future :-)

#1 comment leaver? Really? Wow, stalker much? Who knew...
Thanks for the award, I will get it posted as soon as I can figure out some peeps to give it to.
I was gonna vote on your poll, but I don't see an answer that really suits me. I guess I could go the "random" vote.
Kiss the babies (and the big guy-cant forget him)!

Thanks for the funny comment:
"I think Phil of Deadliest Catch said it best; "This is why lion eat their young"

I watch DC so I got that. It made me laugh - thanks!

Oh my gosh, girl, I JUST checked my comments on my blog today and saw your note, wandered over to your site, and saw this completely awesome and wonderful award!! Thank you thank you thank you!! You put the hugest smile on my face and completely warmed my heart! I am so sorry that I have not even acknowledged your kindness. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for being such a sweet friend. I am so glad to have "met" you (through our virtual Nestie world, of course). ;) You are amazing!
