Kaylie got a little bored with hers. She was a little messy but nothing a washcloth couldn't cure. Ryan continued to gnaw his as I continued to cook.
Well after a bit, I look over at Ryan and THIS is how he looks! (Click on picture to enlarge and get full effect)
Biscuit residue was all over his face & hands, clothes, the high chair, and the wall!! At this time, dinner is ready and he is more than ready to get out of the chair. Another cold dinner for me is what I'm thinking as I have to clean these kids up. No amount of cleaning was good enough. I couldn't get them to stop smelling like biter biscuits. They needed a bath to get the job done.
Will I give them again? Yes, but my lesson learned here: Give teether biscuits right before a planned bathtime. Avoid other times at all cost.

So here's my little cutie girl backing herself up under the pack and play. I thought it was adorable so I snapped a pic. Then Ryan needed some TLC and didn't want to be put down. In the meantime, she continued backing herself up (as I watched) to the point where she couldn't lift her head anymore. Of course what do I do before rescuing her? I take a pic to show all of you! Hey, I need something to blog about.
I'm excited to see what the brochure looks like! Hopefully I'll be able to scan it for all of you to see.

Here are Ryan & Kaylie in their First Easter bibs given to them by their Nana.
They received money, new teethers, and Easter baskets filled with stuffed animals, bath toys, a new spring outfit and chocolate (mostly for Mommy & Daddy). They shout in babyspeak, "Thank You Easter Bunny!"

Before all that was going on, I discovered that the garage door was left open all night so I mentioned it to Bob. He jumps up and proceeds to tell me that he left the car on all night in an attempt to fix the XM Radio and forgot about it. So he was jumping the battery and trying to enter the code for the radio. Well, the car works but I only have about 6 XM channels. (Grrr.....)
And I have one of those killer headaches today!

1. Do twins run in your family?--someone asking this is trying to see if you used fertility treatment.
2. Are they natural? --Aren't all babies? The correct term would be spontaneous.
3. You have your hands full.--Yeah.....DUH! Let's state the obvious Sherlock.
4. Are they identical? (when you see an obvious boy & girl) OK, OK, I know that scientists have actually discovered b/g twins can be identical. The chances of it happening? Slim to none. The average person asking this question has no clue about that! Plus, my kids look nothing alike!
Some comments I got while pregnant included:
1. Better you than me!--- Are you kidding me? I just wanted to be like yeah, it is better to happen to me than you with a comment like that!
2. How will you manage? (I still wonder some days.)
3. You're going to be HUGE! (by one of my 4th graders--I let this one slide)

Kaylie practicing to be the next Mary Lou Retton. (Did I just date myself? Is that possible at my age? YIKES!)
Ryan with a new toy this week. A little piano. He does seem to have a grip on that ring doesn't he????

Ryan continues to be up to his ring tricks. Well, this time he perked his head up as soon as I snapped the picture! No crawling for him but he can get from the seated position to his tummy and can scoot a little.
They both have begun to help me out when getting dressed. They will lift their heads up so I can get the shirt on over their heads. Very helpful!
We'll be visiting the Easter Bunny this Saturday! Stay tuned for pics of that. I'm sure they won't be happy about it, but I'm also sure they will somehow prove me wrong.
6:30-7:00 Wake up and have a bottle
7:20-9:00-hang in bouncers (this isn't lasting too long anymore so we will be giving them up), play on floor, exersaucer/jumperoo
9:00 Breakfast--cereal and fruit & dress for the day
11:15 bottle & lunch
12:30/1:00-2:30 nap (Ryan-sometimes sleeps until 3. Kaylie only takes an hour/hour and a half usually but sometimes goes back to sleep)
3:30-5:00 play--sometimes they need a short nap during this time but right now they seem to be dropping that nap. It's hit or miss now.
5:00 dinner & play some more
@ 6:45 begin bedtime routine of bath (every other night), bottle, and bed.
7:30 in bed!
If I have to do any errands I try to do them in the morning. If they don't get a good morning nap, at least they will get a good afternoon one and I don't have 2 cranky babies on my hands.

After discussing we decided we could not do this at this age. You miss too much in one week. These guys are changing by the minute! If you blink you just might miss something. We would, however, leave them for a long weekend but probably be thinking about them every second. It just isn't for us at this time. See me in a few years.

So how did I do it? I brought the exersaucer in the bathroom and put Kaylie in it. I washed Ryan and then switched them. This is where Ry got a little whiney. Usually a bath signals for him that he gets a bottle. Our routine is bath, bottle, and bed. He just had to be a little patient that's all. I also usually dry them off and get them dressed in their room but I just did everything in the bathroom so I could still be with the other baby. Oh and I also got the bottles ready before we did the baths so they were good to go. So to any future twin mommies out there---it can be done.

First, we have Kaylie enjoying a book.
Ryan mesmerized by the camera.
Kaylie with "Bed Head"
Finally, Ryan & Kaylie so busy they couldn't even look at Mommy. They received these phones as a late Christmas gift and they were VERY into them. Kaylie can sit on her own--that's new this week!

Kaylie is 15 pounds 3 ounces and is 26 inches long. She is in the 5 percentile for weight and 10 percentile for height.
Ryan is still growing like a champ. He weighs 19 pounds 4.5 ounces and is 28 1/2 inches long. That puts him at the 50th percentile for height and 25 percentile for weight.
They got another Synagis shot (for RSV) and a Hepatitus shot too. As expected, they were terrified and cried. I think they are really starting to learn that place is the place where they get hurt.
