Two of my good friends have taken on "Project 365" and have inspired me to do the same. Basically, the goal is to take one picture everyday for a year and to post the picture along with a brief description. It's been quite interesting and entertaining to follow these women's adventures and while I don't anticipate my posts to be as exciting as a new college grad or someone studying/traveling in Europe, I thought this would be a unique way to document the first year of the littles' lives. I can just about guarantee that this blog will not be updated daily and perhaps not even weekly, but I'll give it my best effort to post on a regular basis. My hope is that this will be a popular site for the grandparents, godparents, aunties, uncles, cousins, and friends of the littles and that this can be a fun way to watch them grow.

*November, 2011* We made it through the year, and I thought perhaps I'd try to redesign the blog for the future, intermittent updates. But, this twin mom is going to keep it simple and just keep going. Do not expect daily photos; we'll just post highlights from now on. Enjoy.

Bye-bye Bumbos

April 4, 2012
Time to pass on our bumbos to our twin friends Shira and Elai. Can't believe how much Josie and Noah have grown!

April's Potpourri

(here are the photos of the month from the smartphone)

Enjoying the sidewalk chalk at their first Easter Egg hunt.

 What I consider to be Josie's first true curl.

Noah lounging in the toy box, because just getting to watch TV isn't quite enough.

 First time with milk in our cold cereal, rather than as a side. (They did pretty well.)

SSU Alumna Playdate

March 30, 2012
Got together with some local friends and fellow "Cossacks." I was the genius who forgot to take a photo until the end of our time together. Poor Poppy wasn't pleased, but she was a trooper.

Dad's Home

March 22, 2012
Bennett arrived home after being away for 4 days on a work trip. Clearly he was missed.

Ranch Day

March 21, 2012
A friend and fellow twin mom invited us out to her family ranch. Noah was a little bit intimidated by the sheep, but Josie got right in there with them and we all enjoyed a picnic in beautiful Petaluma.

Goodbye High Chairs

March 17, 2012
One final snack in their high chairs and the Littles are officially sitting at the table. We thought "molo" was a fitting first meal (and, although not Irish, it's green).

Then Nonno arrived just in time to tuck them in (and he wanted a photo to send to Nonna to make her jealous :)).
