They're so cute sometimes. This might hurt a bit, so take it slow.
Here's Logan noshing on an apple and dancing. You can't see the dancing part, but it's in there.
He likes to play the piano.
Emma likes to help him play the piano. Constructive criticism and all that.
They're hard to take pictures of, because either they're not looking at you or they're rushing the camera. Sometimes both at once.
Good pictures are exceedingly rare now.
However, I think I have finally stumbled upon a sure-fire way of getting them to hold still and look at the camera.
I made Logan stop moving. Quite an accomplishment.
Then I pinned Emma.
They're even cuter when you can't see my foot. But they still move around a lot and are a bit blurry.
Also, holding them down doesn't stop the "Can I see?!" thing. Not at all.
Something new in the Twin Life: we bought them beds. Tiny beds that hold their crib mattresses. The cribs are long gone (Since they were well on their way to bone breaking encounters with the floor.), but the mattresses have just been on the floor. Some toddler beds went on sale and suddenly it was time for new beds! But you can't just have new beds without new sheets, so I splurged on some sheet sets.
That I let the twins choose.
That don't have Disney characters on them. (I love Dora and Cars and Toy Story a lot, but I don't want to have to look at them every day. Any more than I already have to look at them, that is!)
Logan! Show us how you lay down and go to sleep!
No! Lay down!
No! Lay down--! Aw forget it.
As soon as the beds were put together, the twins immediately started shoving them around the room. Well, after all the jumping, at any rate. This meant we needed a high tech solution to keep them from shoving their beds around.
I wanted zip ties, but we couldn't find them. Hopefully this will hold them for a little bit. Or until the twins discover that if they both push from the same side that they can move their beds. Ack.
Oh, related to pushing things around, did I tell you about the new lock Eric installed on the patio doors? Turns out the Houdini Twins figured out how to unlock the back door (Caitlin never figured this out until she was older.). I found this out a couple of weeks ago when I dared to have a shower while they were awake. Upon exiting the shower I heard voices.
In the back yard.
They had unlocked the door and gone outside all on their own.
So now there's a lock on the top of the back door that they can't reach. At least, until they figure out how to work together and get a ladder.
I'm doomed, aren't I?
Ah well, I'll leave you with these last two shots:
