Okay, so I haven’t updated in about two months. Almost to the day. Yikes. So here’s where things stand: got through hubby’s hip surgery it went really well. He’s back at work, doing physical therapy and getting stronger every day. The twins are busy. Most of the times I just laugh at their antics and pinch myself for being so incredibly blessed. But I am human and some days I just want to run away and join the circus!
My little guy Jack is really resourceful and clever. Way too much! If he sees how to do something once, he’s got it. He can open the cabinet latches in the kitchen, unlock the front door, climb up on my piano and any thing else, plus he’s really good at turning anything into a step stool. Both kids like to get their own drinks of water from the dispenser on the fridge. They think it’s way cool to get their own drinks. However, I end up with water spread all over the floors. I try to be patient and encourage them to “explore” their world and practice being self-sufficient but after a while I get tired of cleaning up the water and lock the dispenser.
My girl, Clara, is all girl and all miss independent. She is real particular about the clothes I pick out for her and insists on wearing certain shoes regardless of how they don’t match the outfit! Basically if I choose something frilly and girly it’s usually a sure bet. I really thought I had a while before this became an issue. It is amazing to me how two little people could be born on the same day, raised side by side, playing with the same things, and be so different from each other. There is no doubt who’s the boy and the girl.
Aren’t they just the cutest things you’ve ever seen? They’ve discovered juice boxes and back packs, very cool stuff for two year olds.
I have been doing some crafting. I just haven’t been as ambitious about taking pics and uploading. But I will be updating those posts soon!
