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.

Jump Around

December 25, 2011 *Christmas Morning*
Josie and Noah as they see and explore their Christmas gift, first thing in the morning. This video is terribly dark for three reasons: 1) The littles wake up FAR too early in the morning. 2) We don't have any lamps in the room because we can't make them "child-proof." 3) I didn't think to bring in lamps, use the night-vision or whatever else might have made for a better video.

But, it captures the moment for the most part. It's a long and somewhat boring video, but it really is a testament to their little personalities: Noah greets all of us; Josie asks where Nonno is (which she continued to do until he woke up); Noah pushes Josie and she screams at him; Josie tells herself "bravo" when she successfully climbs out...

I'm aware that this post is completely self-indulgent, but I think it will be fun to look back on it with the kids in the future. And I know Nonna and Nonno will watch it over and over, even though they can only really listen to it.
