tada! We're still alive.

Well it's been almost a year so...yeah I'm not going to even try covering that but here's some pics of the baby buddies. We're all doing very well. It's so nice to have them playing together all the time and getting along so well

Josh seems to have figured out he's a boy so I get 'shot' with just about everything (who knew a bowl could be turned into a gun) My favorite part about it is he doesn't make a shooting noise, he simply points whatever object he's holding in your direction and says "Shoot shoot. Shoot shoot." But he's still in touch with his feminine side dressing up in princess dresses, putting babies to bed, choosing pink clothes and wearing tutus. Love it all. And now he's old enough to tell his mom what to do. Now I'm being bossed around by 2 kids. Very humbling. "No mama you stop that. Sop (stop) Singing." "Mama thass my seat. MY seat" etc. etc. If it weren't so adorable... but it is.

Jane is loving preschool and swimming right now (well she loves preschool and I love her swimming). She narrates her life in song ("I'm walking to the room but I'm going sloooooooowly but I'm not now and I've got tieeeyights OOOOONNNNNN....." not highly interesting but comical nonetheless) and every once in a while she adds moves from the dance class she took, which incidentally was one of the cutest things I've seen. I loved being educated on the differences between sashay and sotay (i don't have any idea how to spell those or, incidentally, what they are) She is very entertaining and talkative. So very talkative and sweet and sometimes like a teenager. Always good for a hug.

so pictures

sideways I know. i'm lazy.

Daddy takes them fishing.

'huggies' best big sister ever.

One of Josh's first real tantrums. It didn't last long but I love the theatrics.

"thanks for my birthday cake. It's so tasty that I don't mind the allergic reaction I'm going to have since my mom didn't realize frosting contains eggs. Happy Birthday to me"

We had to take away the bam bam's bat :)

And sometimes it's nice to look back. getting all sentimental but seriously I love these babies.
