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.

We had 7 Mamas and 14 babies over for a play group (the 2 youngest babies aren't in the picture). It's so much fun to watch all of these littles grow and it's so helpful to have a glimpse into the future as most of the babies are a little older than Josie and Noah. And while we've been busy waiting for Noah's second tooth to come in, Josie had her first one break through.
When I called Sally Tomatoes in Rohnert Park to tell them that 9 adults and 16 babies under the age of 1 would be arriving there in a few hours I think they thought I was joking. Then the man on the other end of the line realized I was serious, and was very accommodating. He said he'd set up a separate room for us and it was perfect as it had plenty of space for 8 double strollers. Later that day we took the littles to the park for their first ride in big kid swings.

"Gruncle" Mel, Fiona, Dave and Auntie Karina came over for dinner. It's so nice be the host and not have to do anything - appetizers, dinner and dessert were all covered by the guests and Ben did the dishes (as usual, god bless that man!). One day soon the littles will go through the family right of passage and have their first bowl of molo.

This is what a 2-hour nap looks like in our home. Mom got time to clean the kitchen and Josie woke up with a smile. I think this is the second time this has ever happened (the 2-hour nap, not the clean kitchen or Jo smiling) - let's hope it become a trend that replaces the 20 minute naps!

It's becoming standard practice for Noah to be most interested in whatever toy Josie has even if it's one that he has just discarded. He's much more mobile and he's stronger, so Josie doesn't have much of a chance. But, I learned that if I get the camera out, it distracts him and Jo can get her toy back.
