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.

Woke up this morning to find Noah in his sister's sleep sack. This is a result of Noah having wet more than his diaper, the laundry being finished but not put away, and Bennett grabbing whatever was available in the middle of the night. I think he's sporting the floral print quite well and I'm grateful for a husband on night duty!
One year ago today in the Kaiser Women's Clinic -
Mom: "What are we looking for?"
Nurse Practitioner: "Well, here's her bladder, here's her uterus, and here's one...and here's another one."
Me: "Another one, as in 2, as is twins???"
Nurse Practitioner: "Yes, exactly! As in twins."
Me: "Ooooh my god!"

Noah's new favorite past-time is reaching out and exploring faces. Another is blowing raspberries and I happened to catch one of his bubbles. Everyone says he's a little Bennett!

With twins it makes sense that we go through lots of bibs in one day. Twins with reflux = loads of laundry amounts of bibs. The good news is that the littles are really showing signs of wanting to sit up on their own and my understanding is the more sitting up, the less spitting up!

November 12, 2010
After lunch at our usual hang-out, Rachel convinced me to try something new, so we took the littles for a stroll in downtown Petaluma. I never wanted to maneuver the double stroller on my own downtown, but with Rachel at my side, Josie and Noah got to see a new corner of their hometown.
Bennett and I each took the littles to our polling place today - have to teach them early about their civic duty! Josie also marked this day by rolling from her back to her tummy for the first time.
Update: I was going through old photos and realized I forgot to post an important milestone. Below, Josie is perfecting her back to tummy rolling.
