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.

I experienced a whole new level of attention and questioning when I met up with my new friends Katie and Kerstin and their sets of twins. Despite having the term "twinarazzi" come to life, it was wonderful to spend some time with women who are in the same boat!

The past few mornings we've woken up to find Josie had wiggled her hands up to her face while still swaddled, but this morning she broke free. I looked back at some of her newborn photos and she was even breaking free of the nurses swaddles...so tonight, no more swaddle.

Those of you who know Bennett will recognize this "up to no good" glimmer in Noah's eyes...I watched as he scooted and rolled his way across the room and under grandma's rocking chair. It's definitely time to baby proof the house!
Not only is Noah attempting to get around on his own, but he's also learning to hold his own bottle. When I see other twin moms who can hand their babies bottles and allow them to drink on their own, I'm envious. Looks like there's hope! (This was a rare occasion when Josie was still asleep so I got to feed each one of them individually)

We were all very fortunate to have Nonna with us for the first month of the littles' lives. The times when they'd sleep on her were the times when Ben and I could actually get some sleep. Nonna was happy, the littles were happy and we were happy. Here, Nonna is reliving the good old days.
