My posts have been few and far between the past couple months partly because our little climbers have kept me on my toes. Here are just a few examples of the recent chaos.
Climbing in the kitchen drawers is nothing new for these two, but they started climbing in and just hanging out in the drawers. I have a photo somewhere of Little Sister “reading” a book in a drawer. At least they can entertain themselves while I cook or clean in the kitchen.
All of our children have been fascinated with rocks as toddlers, but this is the first time we have had a gravel driveway with toddlers. We have to watch them closely because they will put rocks in their mouths.
I went to get the twins after their nap one day, and Sissy had somehow turned her shirt inside out and put it back on. Another day, she must not have liked how I dressed her because she took her shirt off repeatedly until I changed her clothes.
A rare photo of both girls hugging. It’s usually Little Sister hugging Sissy, but every now and then Sissy will hug her back. Sissy gives great hugs to others, squeezing our necks, but I think she wants to be the initiator instead of the receiver.
Sissy climbed onto the dining table while I was cooking dinner one evening. Another evening, Sissy opened the front door, and both girls walked out to the driveway to meet Grandmother, who was coming up for dinner. It’s a good thing we don’t live in a subdivision anymore.
Little Sister climbed onto a glass-topped patio table down behind her grandparents’ house this afternoon. It was not as sturdy as the other tables, so this was the best photo I could manage while trying to keep her from falling.
There are so many other little chaotic moments that I have failed to photograph, but this gives you an idea of how I spend my days. Please pray for the babies’ safety and my sanity!
