The video camera keeps on rolling, but I keep forgetting to put the vidlets on the blog, so here's a big catch-up post of the things that have made us laugh lately. Might want to grab a nice cup of coffee and get comfy. Heh.
We scoff at heavy car doors
The girls took 10 years off my life the other day when they disappeared while I was in the bathroom. I ran around the house screaming their names, checked every room and door, and heard only eerie silence. I finally found them inside the closed garage, inside the closed car. I didn't even know they could open the freakin' car door yet!! Now that I'm somewhat calm, here's a peek at how they do it:
By the way, please ignore the massive pile of Beverly Hillbillies crap in the middle of the garage. We must get off our butts and sell all of our baby stuff on Craiglist, but just haven't done it. Anyone want to buy two booster seats, two cribs, two pack-and-plays, a double stroller, and eight baby gates?
Tigger versus the sprinter
Finally got a video of the way the girls run. Ree does a funny little hop/run combo that reminds me of Tigger and Ro sprints as fast as she can.
Rainbow sherbet on the patio
The girls like to "paint" on the patio by mixing chalk and water:
Our favorite sweaters
Hundreds of clothes to pick from, and the girls always reach for these tiny little red and purple sweaters that Ma knitted for them when they were babies. The look is kind of comical. Ma, if you're reading this, we thought you'd get a chuckle out of it.
It makes me grin to compare them to this snapshot taken of the girls on Nov 26, 2006 (they were 13 months old).
I've posted pictures of the girls with their multiple layers of PJs, but here's a video one day where I took them all off to see how many layers they had on. No one else was home, so I just turned the camera on and set it on a shelf:
Tickling the ivories
TubaDad and I were dying one night to hear this over Ro's monitor. She was supposed to be sleeping, but apparently just had to get out of bed to tickle the ivories on her little pink "pee-nan-oh".
Singing oh so many songs
The girls like to make up songs lately. They're always entertaining, if not very musical. Here's Ree making up a song one day out in the backyard:
There, I think that's most of the recent ones. Hope you all have a great weekend.
