The girls have started doing a new “thing”: Kayla will look at me and say, “mommy, watch this,” and then do something. She’ll jump on the couch, she’ll put a hat on her head, or she’ll take 2 steps in the opposite direction of where she was headed. Literally, anything she does now starts with, “Watch this!” And of course since Kayla started doing that, Zoey has joined in as well. It is hysterical! This game can literally go on for 15 minutes with each of my girls telling me to watch them do things that span from the most amazing new tricks to the most mundane tasks. But, I’m loving it! It’s probably my favorite “thing” they’ve come up with in the past few months. And it’s gotten even better lately because now instead of just asking me to, “watch this,” they ask each other!
This weekend Dave and I were in bed and we heard the girls wake up. Instead of crying for Mommy and Daddy, Kayla started with, “ZZ, watch this,” and proceeded to jump in her crib. Zoey then said, “Kayla, watch this,” and jumped in her crib too. Dave and I were hysterically laughing watching them through the monitor. This went on for about 10 minutes and fully reminded me how much I love having twins. I needed that to happen because there are some days where I absolutely forget!!
I have a few shout outs I would like to give:
1. Congratulations to Kelly, Sean and big brother Brett on the birth of Zack Cooper Levine!! I met him yesterday and he is delicious! I could stare at him all day, especially since when he started crying, I got to give him back to Kelly and head out! Seriously, congratulations guys!
2. This weekend Dave and I went into Brooklyn to visit my oldest and dearest friend, Danielle, who has a baby a few weeks younger than the girls (We couldn’t have planned it better if we tried!). Anyway, we had such a fabulous time with Danielle, David and Chloe and it just reminded me about how special it is to have a friend that has known you forever. While all my new friendships are great, there’s nothing like spending time with someone who knows what I’m thinking without me having to say it, or can call me out on my nonsense, make fun of me for it, but still love and accept me! Danielle, you are such a wonderful friend and I am so lucky to be so close to you! Thank Gd we have gotten to go through our first children together and I can’t wait to meet your new addition in November!
OK, I think that’s it for now! Stay tuned for more blogs…….
