a year ago new years we found that two of you had taken up residence in my tummy, what an amazing surprise that was.
now you are just over five months old and it feels like we have known each other forever. People stop us all the time when we are out the conversation goes something like this...
stranger: wow you have twins?
mommy: yes I do
stranger: a boy and a girl?
mommy: nope, two girls (they are in pink or purple snowsuits, blankets, hoodies... seriously people not all twins come in a boy/girl package)
stranger: wow you must be exhausted
mommy: actually twins are totally manageable
mommy: yes, much more doable than we thought
mommy: I now think that all babies should come with a twin
stranger: (trying to look convinced but in fact coming off as... who is this crazy mommy... twins are cute to look at but i'm glad I don't have them) well they are adorable
twins are awesome... I mean one baby would be amazing as well but I really do believe that all babies should have a twin, a built in best friend.
|here you are, rockin your bandanas, lounging in your bumbos with poppity pop... I got a bit scared when other mom's said their babies shrieked in terror when they turned this guy on but you two love it... and so does Heidi|
it's so great to see you laugh at each other, to have you grab my face when I hold you, to see you try as hard as you can to roll over and to finally succeed. It's amazing to watch you experience so many firsts. I love how your eyes light up Alice when you discover that we're at the mall. I love how you take a moment Isla, to assess a new situation before you decide that it's a good one.
everyday there's a new surprise... and I love it.
happy five months
