Sometimes I see all the back to school pictures moms of school-aged children are posting and I think I should start taking pictures of what I wore every first day of school. And then I remember that that would be weird, because I'm a teacher and not a student... Although it would actually have been pretty awesome the past 5 years:
Didn't start working until January, 14ish weeks pregnant?
6 weeks post partum, probably pretty similar (or rather larger...) to the first year picture!
20ish weeks pregnant with Cecilia.
7 months post partum and actually fairly normal-looking...
26ish weeks pregnant with twins, large and in charge.
9ish months post partum and fairly normal-looking.
Am I really in my 6th year of teaching? Granted, the first year I only worked half the year, and the third year was the same... But still, time has flown!
In the race for teeth, Elizabeth has pulled WAY ahead, cutting her two top teeth this past week. Mary Claire STILL only has one on the bottom right!
Speaking of babies, they're pretty hilarious these days - they tend to follow each other everywhere and want to play with the same toys all the time...
"Oh hey sister, that looks like a good toy!"
"Here, move out of the way so I can have a turn!"
"Yeah, that's good. You sit on the floor and I'll play."
"No, YOU sit on the floor, and I'll play!"
"Oh hey, the window!"
"Oh yeah, I forgot about that window!!!"
"Mom, did you need something?"
Of course, the allure of toys isn't exclusive to baby toys... After all, train tracks are pretty awesome too!
Mary Claire is clapping. Cutest. Milestone. Ever.
"Cool. Got it."
This happened between breakfast and morning nap yesterday:

So I got to eat my cereal and drink my coffee in peace! It DOES get easier, moms of twins!!!
Right now they're even playing with their music cube together while I blog and make dinner!
Check out more quick takes at Jen's!
