A Day In The Life of A & J

January has been a slow month. True to form here in MI it has been full of snow and cold weather but unlike last year it has not been totally unbearable. We have had some breathtaking sunsets and sunrises, some days in the 30's, and really great packing snow for building snowmen, forts, or snowballs. Watch out! :D 

Yesterday marked the Twins' 26th month so I thought I would document some of the things we did today so that later on I can remember where we were at this stage in the game. It has been a fun ride and I look forward to new things that progress every day so I want to take a moment to STOP and breathe in just the right now. 

Coloring. We are all about our colors right now and they spend countless hours creating beautiful 'pic-Urs'! ;)

Food. Another daily activity is creating yummy meals and playing with play food or pretending that we have food in whatever random dish we happen to have by us. I love that they love to cook already and I can't wait to see what kinds of great dishes we can cook up together in mama's kitchen when they are a little bigger! 

Personality is blossoming out of each one 

Anders is sweet and snuggly, curious about EVERYTHING, loves to wander and create new things out of the random. I love that he is an out of the box sort of guy with a well rounded nature; soft, grimy, and goofy to the max. He's kind of like a little old man! 

Joline is a feisty peach! The look on that face in the picture above says a lot. :D She's the one I find trying to climb our stone fireplace to plug in mama's Christmas decorations or the one who tries sticking her head in between the spindles of the staircase (both of these things happened again today)! While she is all go and super competitive she is the one who at the end of the day wants to snuggle with mama or daddy and her baby and she will repeatedly fold and unfold blankets until they are just right so she can put her baby down for a nap! 

Playing Peek A Boo is a daily game with these boxes! Who's the Monkey in the box? :D 

This hallway has become their perpetual racetrack! I'm so thankful we have gates to keep them from coming crashing down because at the speeds they go I'm sure they would! 

This girl is daily becoming more and more interested in all things girl. A purse was added to the mix today and she insisted it be worn on her shoulder! The dress up dress from Halloween is another daily necessity lately. Such a fashionista. Gotta love though that she is the quickest one to tear all of her dress ups off to run to the chicken coop with daddy! 

So there you have it! We hope you all are having a blessed day and enjoying the end of January. We are ready to say "see ya later" to this month and on to Fab February!
