Crazy Twins & Snoozing Siblings

I'm attaching a couple of my favorite pictures that we've taken over the last couple of weeks.

This first one was taken at the end of April. The kids attended a Stephen Fite concert at school and were told to dress as crazy & colorful as possible. So, this is what they picked out.

Samuel was in Heaven! If he had his way, he would dress crazy every day of the week! In fact, on one of our mother/son dates, we went to Target & I told him he could pick out one prize. He said he wanted some green bubble gum. So, on the way to the candy/gum aisle, I made a quick detour through the shoe department. While we were there, he found these yellow rainboots and just had to have them! Lucky for me, they were on clearance for $3 and change! How could I tell him no?!

This second picture was taken last week. Nicholas fell asleep on the sofa during his "quiet" time and Sydney decided to crawl up next to him and snuggle. (Our kids are BIG on snuggling! We love to snuggle!) Eventually, she fell asleep also. I love this picture not only because of how sweet they look together, but mostly because it reminds me of the days when the twins were infants and would fall asleep snuggled next to each other. We would swaddle them and lay them as close as possible so they would feel the other's presence, just like they did in the womb. They would sleep this way on the sofa, in our papasan, in their bassinet and eventually, in their crib... until they outgrew sleeping together and needed their own, individual space. So, when I saw this picture, it reminded me of those first few days and months of Sydney's and Samuel's lives and brought back a flood of memories and emotions. They are all three growing up way too fast!
