Babysitting


Karina, Jason & The Boys were in Chicago yesterday for a trip to the zoo and other fun things, so we got to keep The Girls for the day. I am more impressed than ever at how Karina (and Jason, too... although Karina is home alone a lot with the FOUR little ones) does this, day in and day out. You just have to experience it first hand to understand what I'm saying.Madison in the Megasaucer. They love this thing, and so do we! The Girls get bored with just lying around, even though they can roll and even creep to get where they want to go. Until they can sit up on their own, this device is a life-saver.
It's fun to watch them interact. They already can make each other smile.
We actually caught them both smiling at the same time.
While Madison napped, Kate played outside on the quilt for a long time.
(Kate doesn't like naps, too much.)
Then, Madison had her turn.
They were good listeners when Papi read a storybook.

It was another 300-mile day for Karina and the boys. As Reiley puts it, "It was a long trip, because it was a long road."
It was a long day for us, too, but a lot of fun!

    I've travelled many a "long road" myself. Those long roads can get boring after awhile, especially for a kid.

    The girls are such beauties. They will be great friends and also have some mega arguments over the years. Through it all, they will be best buds forever!!

    Enjoy each moment. They are growing quickly!!

    The twins are so cute! Are they color-coded so you can tell them apart? I may need a little help learning who is who when you all come and visit...

    Usually Kate's in pink... but sometimes they both are. Then you have to look at eyebrows and ears.

    I can tell them apart. :o)





    I think.


    I love it that they can already make each other laugh!
