Back & Forth

After a l-o-n-g day where babies wouldn't nap and wouldn't play (instead they would cry and cling to me...and then fight with each other because they wanted me to themselves)...I had just about had it. I fed them, gave them tylenol (thinking it might be teething?), and set them down to play while I watched from the couch (with a little chocolate). And they turned on the charm - doing things so cute that I not only had to catch it on video, I ended up on the floor playing with them until bedtime.

Note: We didn't have the software on the laptop to download videos from our video camera, so I've been using the laptop to take videos. We finally have the software on the laptop, and now I can't find our video camera! Soon, I will have both the software and the camera and will be able to put better quality videos on the blog. Bear with me until then...

Allie crawled across the stone hearth and loved it. Whether it was that the feel was different than what she was used to, or she loved the sound of her hands slapping against the stone, I don't know. But she went back and forth for about 15 minutes (Ryan got in on the action - sometimes following her and sometimes sitting in her way).

Both babies have started walking with their Walk 'N' Ride toy. Allie refuses to do this on command, but Ryan is more than willing to show off his new skill (which is why we have the video of him)! The only problem is that he hasn't figured out how to turn...so he goes as far as he can one way, and cries when he gets stuck. Then I turn him around and he repeats the performance. Below are several clips strung together so you can get the picture :)

They are so CUTE crawling around together! And Allie is fast! Morgan NEVER crawled, so seeing your two crawl around seems somehow alien to me, but it's adorable. I hope we get a chance to properly meet Ryan and Allie sometime soon ...

You must be exhausted ALL of the time. I cannot imagine what life with twins would be like. And now having to get up and turn little Ryan around every time he stops. I so remember those days. Pretty soon they will be walking on their own and in some ways it is great because they can get to where they want to, and in some ways it stinks because they can get to where they want to. I hope the packing is going well. Love you.
