the Chitlins...

2 recent thoughts from my only verbal child:

"He hit me on my body part!" ---I swear I taught him correct anatomical language...but then I told him not to say it ALL the time. I guess this is what we get.

"Maybe he thinks they're holes of grossness..." ---Junior Mint on why his younger brother wouldn't take the penne pasta I offered him.

As for the nonverbal children, at 14 months apart, they are becoming more like twins every day as the gap in their developmental levels closes. They are so fun and cute, but also manage to cause a lot of trouble for such little people.

They get into the bathroom and the older one turns on the water while the younger one rips up all the toilet paper. Or the older one opens the fridge and both babies take out everything they can reach before I get to them. Yesterday, I came into the room after maybe 3 minutes away and Sqeaky Bean was on the living room floor surrounded by litte gold foil wrapped butter pats, chewing on them willy nilly. (Courtesy of Curly Fry, of course. He is such a little helper and he adores his baby "Nena.")

What is it going to be like when they BOTH walk and climb? I'm toast, folks.

So adorable...when they're not your own! As everyone keeps telling me, all you can do is enjoy each stage, I guess. You sure do have a beautiful family and it looks and sounds like you're doing an awesome job :)

Hey girl, take it from someone with twins, it only gets worse from here. I honestly thought as they got older it would get easier, I find they just get sneakier. Good luck. I need it too. :) Lisa :)

Your kids crack me up. I need to add some of Her Nibs' recent non-sequitur comments to my blog... And you rock, so I've tagged you on my blog. Teach me how you do it!
