Life with twins


As my fellow twin moms will attest(back me up girls) raising twins is anything but a walk in the park. More like hitting the lottery every day. Well, not quite every day. Exhilarating . Yes, that's it. Exhausting too. A high speed chase with out catching the villain. Bwahaha. But it is the single most rewarding thing I've ever (and I mean ever) done in my entire life. They amuse me with their funny little personalities and how smart they are. Not our gene pool--thank g-d. They have brightened our cosmos in a way I never thought imaginable. I am amazed that these two wickedly cute little people just barely 3 feet tall have us totally captivated and entertained at any given moment. More like hostage to their antics. I will share with you some of the deliciously clever things my devil children bright children will and can say on any given day. We've already conceded that our children are exceptionally talented. I know, you all think your little cupcakes are "gifted" too! Plzzzzz. Lol. You haven't met my little dynamo's. Big snort.

Katie: "Daddy cuuuuute".
Fh (faithful husband) had big meeting in D.C. last week and had to wear a suit to the office. Girls never see daddy dressed like this. His daily uniform flip-flops, t-shirt and shorts. Nice....Plus he also has lunch with the girls almost everyday. Rewards for working from home.

Mommy: "What is your name"? (Asking Abbey).

Abbey: Looking at mommy and saying "Abbey Gheeeee-leeeetter, Abbey twwwwwoooo". As if it's all one answer and why are you asking me when you know my name? She may have something there.

Katie: Pointing to mommy and instructing "Mommy, sit right there"! Ok, bossy.

Abbey: As she's looking at pictures of she and Katie, excitedly pointing. "Katieabbey, Katieabbey". Yes, siamese Twins?!

Katie:
Dog
eagerly runs into their room each and every morning and and promptly kisses Katie and or Abbey. This is what fh and I hear every morning from Katie's lips. "Ow, that hurt me"! Now, where did she hear that?

Katie and Abbey recited their colours: "poo-pul", "r-ange", "ba-lew" and "lel-ooooo". Too cute.

The little schmarty pants have figured out how to stall bedtime by insisting that we read, oh, like 50 books before lights out!

A few of the different hats my girls like to display. And fh.....see for yourself.

Awesome post and pics, Rony. Very cute. They look great. You sound good....Gosh, I have so much reading to catch-up on. I need to take a day off from work (yea, like that won't happen for quite some time....) just to blog.
Love the slide-show thing-y.

Hey...hope you understood my vm last night...! :0
Hugs,
Cindy

The Real Me said...

You have outdone yourself with this post. You're making the rest of us look bad, slide show and all!

I requested twins... but hindsight being what it is, cannot imagine if my girl had a partner in crime! I am not superwoman after all! She is two all wrapped into one (on a bad day, three).

Your girls are certainly cute and smart, I will give you that. I must go check on my 'cuter' and 'smarter' girl, though. Did I mention she's almost 3 and is helping my teen with her geometry homework? Yeah. That's right...

Sophie's Mom said...

That certainly does appear to be a potty on her head...

I hope you're video taping their little voices, it won't be long and they'll be talking in complete sentences, and you will miss that talk. Not to self: I need to video tape again!

Love the black & white photos!

A Special Family said...

oh, this is such a sweet post...
I remember SO well when Jacob and Chloe wee babies how much more work 2 is. They are 7 months apart and very much like having twins. It is 2 times the blessing as well though.
I do love that they are NEVER lonely and always have a playmate.

It has to be a trip to have two of them!! What a special gift.

BTW, I have often wondered what the "f" stood for in your "fh". I was just to afraid to ask!! I'm glad you cleared that up for me (and that it is a nice word!!)LOL

Lilly said...

These girls are too funny! I can't wait to have my "twins" home.... But I know it will be a lot of work, but totally worth it!

Home sweet home said...

I agree 100 % on the twin thing :) Love the hats on the girls -- looks like you have TWO drama queens !! :)

kerri said...

I love the potty seat on her head, LOL.
I think the animal print hats are adorable, darn I wish my girls would keep hats on their heads. :(

Someone told me a long time ago to "pick your battles". Well, I did and the one that I won was them wearing a hat when going outside. Now, I didn't mean "those" hats!

Truly Blessed said...

My Katie has a nice collection of hats, but so far she has not figured out that her potty chair could be one of them. (I SURE hope that thing was clean before she hoisted it over her head and dropped it in place!)

Sam said...

So I'm guessing our girls will be swapping fashion tips next month? Too bad we can't smuggle Sen and her gang into the country!

Great pics!!! Can't wait to see all that cuteness in person!

Lori said...

Sweet post Rony. I love your hat-loving family! Sounds like a crazy, fun time in your home....how blessed you are. :D

Ms. Dragonfly said...

they are so cute.
My dog licks Shrimpy and he always complains too! I try to explain it's a 'kiss', but nope.

Salome's Mom said...

THEY ARE SO YUMMY!!!!!!!!

redmaryjanes said...

I've missed some of your posts. I that a potty seat on her head? Those girls are beautiful. I can't imagine raising twins. Eli wears me out, I don't know how I'd keep up with 2 of him.

Jewels of My Heart said...
