Alligators, Apples, and Fish!

As it always is in New England, the weather has been a bit unpredictable lately. With temperatures over 40 degrees this past weekend, we were able to take the tarp off the stroller and get the kids out for a walk. It was nice to get some fresh air! As the kids grow, however, the stroller keeps getting heavier! I am in for a real workout when our daily walks resume this Spring! Right now, we have about 78lbs of kid, and about 12 lbs of stroller- and it's only going to be more in the next few months!

After a nice day on Saturday, it snowed on Sunday night. We had to resume our regular indoor routines, so Mairead spent some time coloring, and she and I worked on some projects together.

Here are the 'fruits' of our labor (sorry, I couldn't resist...)

Jack and Ben were all bundled up for the winter weather in these adorable sweaters from a family friend. She made these cute little fish sweaters-- thank you so much, Kathy!
No idea why Ben is making that face...

They are looking different from each other lately, aren't they?

Ben has a new trick. When you say, "Whee!", he throws his hands over his head, and then puts them on his head. This is always fun when he has cookie or pancakes, etc, on his hands, and it ends up in his hair.

Jack is amused by these tricks, but does not follow along.

They are still loving the 'real food' and are expanding their menu. Now, they eat pancakes, french toast, grilled cheese, Cheerios, puffs, cereal bars, potatoes, and bananas. They are growing boys!
They are usually not, however, clean boys, as shown here by young Benjamin.

It's hard to believe, but these little guys are going to be 1 soon- then they will get to eat cake!!!

they are so cute!! I loved nannying for twins, pushing them in their jogger stroller was the best workout!

I have a double crush on your boys. I just fall into their eyes. Mairead is pretty darn cute too. I just remember how you were so nervous to have a "little kid" since you only do high school stuff. Now you basically teach preschool at home. Welcome to the dark side!
