Don't you love their glazed over looks in this one? This is what you will see when they are teenagers and you ask "Any volunteers to say the prayer?". Or how about, "Who wants to help me clean out the garage (or car, or bedroom, etc.)." I'll hear back, "Um, did you say something mom?"

We're growing up.
So I loaned out my baby bath so now we have to take our baths in the "real" bathtub. I've been hesitant to make the move because I can keep the bambinos a little more under control with the small tub rather than a normal sized tub. I gave them their first bath the other day in the big tub. They did ok. I might as well should have just jumped in with them. It is hard work. I don't have it quite down as to how to take them out, dry them off before they freeze, get a diaper on them before they pee on me, stop them from grabbing/rolling/crawling around anything in the bathroom, and move on to the next kid quickly and without leaving the room. I need another set of arms I think. Hmmmmm, that'd be attractive don't ya think? It is a new challenge each day and I think I'm getting smarter and so are the boys. Charlie made his first crawling moves yesterday. I'm glad that Brandt and I were both there to see it. Dylan is all over the place and has all sorts of sores on his face from pulling things down onto him (like a TV tray, opps). The other morning I was sitting on one side of the couch and Dylan wandered to the other side of it. He got quiet and when I went to see what he was up to he had climbed 8 stairs!!! He had 3 more to go to the top. Oh boy he is fast. Imagine how it will be when Charlie joins him! They are doing well with their sleeping and being so fun. I feel so lucky to have such great boys. They are just amazing.
