Various Thoughts and More Pictures

I recently read a magazine article by a lady who had twins. She said that when her babies were infants, she thought that if she could just get through the sleep deprivation, keeping up with who ate when, and all of the other responsibilities of caring for newborn twins she would have it made. Well, she was mistaken. It was when her babies began to move around and get into things, and all that goes along with that, that it became more difficult. I will have to agree!

I, too, thought that it would get easier once the boys were moving around and could go where they needed to by themselves. While that is nice, it is also more difficult to keep up with who is where and what they are getting in to. I am SO thankful for our Superyard gate! It allows them the freedom to roam the living room and the hall, but not get into the kitchen where they could get into more trouble. And, as long as I can keep the doors closed, they don't have much they can get into. But somehow, they find things that I never even knew where there. They are so curious.

Please don't think that I am complaining about my life as a mom of twins because I definitely am not doing that. I wouldn't change one thing about my life - my boys are the greatest and I love being their Mommy. I just wanted to share that I recently came to the realization that parenting toddlers is hard work (although most of you already knew that). Since I have realized this, things have become easier for me because I have a different mindset of how things will go. I always say that I can deal with anything as long as I know what I am getting in to, and I really think that is true.

Okay, that is enough of me talking, I know that you are ready to see more pictures of the boys :). Here are some random pictures I've taken over the past month.

I love the last picture w/ the boys playing w/ the piano sitting in the chair. We had both of those and my girls did the EXACT same thing!! Those are the greatest toys!!!

Toddlers are A LOT of work, and twins especially. I wish I could say it gets easier....it just gets different. But the boys are adorable and getting to be so big!! Thanks for the new pictures!

I would have to agree that this stage is much harder than when you could set them down and know they couldn't go far! And I can't imagine keeping up with twins!

I have to say that Carson looks a lot like Dodie in his first single picture on this post. They are so cute, I enjoyed the new pictures.
