I know, it’s been a while since I updated. I can’t seem to keep up anymore. We’ve had lots going on, so here’s a little bit of what we have been doing:
We did a little outdoor painting session. This didn’t work out so well, it was actually a huge mess. The kids enjoyed it though, until they realized how incredibly messy they had gotten, then they all started crying:
Todd’s mom and dad were just here to visit, and we had a little get-together with our buddies, the Newells. The kids had a blast running around, getting lots of attention from everybody!
They have generally been quite mischievous… can you tell? Here we have Lily, using an Ikea toy bin turned upside down as a stepping stool to reach the counter, and Ben and Cameron looking at me as if to say, “We have no idea how that entire container of wipes was emptied one by one onto the floor. Nope, we did NOT see who did that.”
It should also be noted that Benjamin was wearing Lily’s pants in this picture. He wanted nothing to do with his pants, and insisted on wearing her red velvety pants. She didn’t mind.
We even got haircuts this past week: The kids were AMAZINGLY good. No crying, no wiggling, nothing.
Aunt Christi spoiled the kids with new Dr. Suess toys! She also got them their first undies, which they are not quite ready for but will be held onto for when they are. Lily took her princess undies out of the package and promptly put them on her head. I WISH I had a picture of that.:)
Another cool thing- I have an article in the Winter Edition of Twins Magazine! It’s a great publication for families of multiples, so check it out! My article is about the benefits of blogging for parents of multiples, go figure:)
and, my final thought for the night:
Did you ever think to yourself, when your kids were learning to walk, that you wish they made helmets for kids? Not the cranial, head shaping ones that are used to correct medical problems, but helmets to simply stop kids from bumping their heads… I admit I joked about having my mom sew a little quilted helmet for the kids because for a while it seemed like they were always bumping their heads…well, they do make them!:
Seriously?! This is real? I have been called overprotective of my children many times, but even I think these are just silly. I mean, I’m sure kids would be even safer wrapped in a suit of bubble wrap, but, where do you draw the line?
