How Was Your Morning?

After getting Abby off to school (this is her last week!) wearing a long-sleeved shirt and windbreaker- on June the First- in California (what?), the babies and I had a fun morning. Lily has REALLY been into puzzles lately and just LOVES them. She is very good at them as well and practices all the time. She gets really frustrated with Liam when he is too slow or tries to put his piece in the wrong place. He doesn't care so much and prefers to look at books, learn new words (there's about 7 or 8 things he says and the rest are just variations on the words he already knows) or- his personal favourite- and mine, cuddle. He just gives the best hugs! They both love to sing and dance- Lily has already made up actual songs! Our favorite is "Abby Abby Oh Oh". They can also keep each other busy and often give each other fist bumps, hugs and kisses as well as play Peek-A-Boo, Chase and Ring Around the Rosies. Oh, and my personal favorite- when one escapes the corral, they pass the remaining kid contraband from the outside that they quickly try to hide and ruin at the same time knowing it's just a matter of time before they get caught! Having twins is really amazing. Most children can only do side-by-side play until they are about 3 years old. It fills my heart to see my children play and laugh and work together at such a young age. As far as June goes, the weather makes Paul happy, the children are happy and that makes me happy!
