A Tisket, a Tasket...

A baby in a basket! Well, two babies, really. Now that the boys are taking baths in the big tub instead of the sink, we have come up with a creative way to be sure they don't slide all over the place or knock each other over. Babies in laundry baskets! They like it- they feel more confined and they don't have to share their toys. It's easier for us since they can sit up pretty well without help, and one adult can wash a baby while the other baby is safely playing. Bath nights are quite the operation with a little assembly line of babies. We seem to have a system going that keeps everyone clean and happy.

The kids are doing great. Jack now has two bottom teeth and one top one with another top one soon to follow. The only downside to that is that he grinds his teeth and it is a terrible sound! He is also really into giving high-fives.
Both boys can now (sort of) make the sign for 'more' and for 'all done.' Very helpful at mealtime! Of course, it is pretty much always meal time around here.
Ben's favorite thing to do lately is to steal remotes for the tv and wave them frantically in hopes of making something happen.
Both boys are really into music and they start dancing as soon as they hear any. I will have to get that on film, for sure.
Mairead is doing really well. She had her first in-home developmental therapy session today and it went really well. She liked seeing her teacher and the new toys she had brought.
At Christmas, Grandma recorded her voice into a 'T'was the Night Before Christmas' recordable story book. Lately, Mairead has been really into it. She keeps the book in her crib and listens to it over and over while she is going down for a nap or for the night. She loves that the book says her name at the end- it's very cute.
We are trying to stay busy during this most recent deluge, but we are all desperate for dry (and warm) weather. I can't wait to post pictures of us playing outside!

yay! I want a bath in a basket too. Sounds like things are getting busy and crazy there. Thank goodness you can just take them outside soon and let them walk all around to wear themselves out.

I love the letters on their heads to help us tell them apart. VERY cute.
