So for now, here's my list (of things happening currently) of things that I want to remember about my silly little girlies:
I'll start off with a two-for-one here and list Olivia's piggies and the way she sits on her ball and bounces.
Olivia's crusty looks (because she gets them from mommy)
Sophie's chubby face when she has too much food in her mouth
The way Olivia leans on everything from the sofa to the coffee table to her sissy (sissy doesn't like that....)
The joy they get from experiencing life's simplest things--watching cookies bake! This was the first time they'd ever seen cookies in the oven as I usually wait until they are asleep to bake A) to keep them from screaming for cookies and B) because it's hard to maneuver your way around a kitchen with two kids hanging off your legs/hips/arms.
The silly pictures I find on my phone after Sophie has gotten ahold of it...
Their smiles that come from playing in the sand at the park--they love it so much, and not even my hatred of dirt and gritty things can deter me from allowing them to do anything that makes them smile so sweetly!
How much they love being in the bath tub!
(This video: Their faces when they splash in the tub)
Their complete obsession with bubbles (we have to hide the bubbles after they've been distracted so that we can put them away for a while and have some peace!)
How cute it is when they wipe their mouths (this video is after brushing their teeth but they do this after they have a drink or eat a snack too)
Their first haircut! I did them on separate nights, and it took everything I had in me not to cry when I was done--they're just so grown up already!
How much they love to read their books and how sweet they look when they come rushing out of their room with one in hand, plop down on the floor, throw it open and start jabbering away.
aaaaaaaaaand last but not least: the unbelievably gigantic messes that two people who are so small are capable of making! Featured here: Tonight's disaster of a spilled box of baking soda! It took a broom, vacuum, and a mop to clean this up!
And just in case I didn't already know who the culprit was, there was a nice little footprint left to erase any doubt. <3
