Just Playin'

Just hanging out...

It's what we do all day, when we're not out and about.

The Yogurt Experience

Our new life here in Worcester County is all good! Mom loves being home with the twins all day! I think it's paying off -- Colin is now a champ at walking (videos to come) and Ava is getting bolder with her steps. I also think they are starting to understand me better. When I say "let's go for a walk/ride," Colin finds his coat and shoes and throws them at me. Then he throws Ava's shoes at me and puts her hat on his head...ha! Pretty soon he'll start throwing my shoes at me -- note to self, do not leave my clogs in the family room. Ouch!

We are also on Day 2 of going down to 1 nap a day. Yesterday, I went on a run with them in the morning to keep them awake, and we made it until 11:55am before I had to put them down for their nap. They fell asleep right away and slept until 1:35...not too bad.

On to the yogurt experience...the twins have had yogurt before, but I always spoon-fed them YoBaby. It's kind of runny which would be a bad thing for them to handle on their own, so I bought Danonino yogurt by Dannon which is thicker and the containers only hold about an ounce or so.

Behold the's quite the vision.

We've Moved!

Lots of changes at Boston Twins - including moving out of Boston! That's right, we've left the life of the big city, skipped right over the suburbs, and landed in the country of Central Mass!

Last days on the old back deck...

Colin thinking, "I need more space..."

Ava becoming impatient... when will we move???

Daydreaming of the new house...

Ava helping us pack!

Keeping a close eye on that "Toys and Blankets" box...

The other big change is that Mommy is now a SAHM (that would be "Stay At Home Mom"), leaving her job to stay home with the babies and help them learn and grow over the next few years!

We're very excited but at the same time we'll all miss Brianna. We look forward to her visits and convincing her to come out to give the SAHM a break every once in a while!

We made it!

Wooohoooo! We have lots more room now. And a BIG YARD to play in!!!

We love it here, we are already sleeping and napping better and we love all the carpet we get to play on. We have less forehead bruises without the hardwood!

Mommy and Daddy are finding it much more relaxing, too.

More to come now that we're settled!
