Ahead of them getting here, I was trying to think about what E&L might like to play with. I called up what I think of as the couple of pictures that sum up that ~year-and-a-half age in my mind.
Here's one of my favorites...the girls were about 17 months old. It was rare to have caught them sitting still, AND in the same place!
|We still have these books, but they're not in nearly as good shape. And those little books look so big against those tiny babies!|
And I can very easily remember our first trip to Kentucky Down Under, when the girls were just days shy of 18 months.
|Baby A, signing "hat".|
|Baby B, pointing to a cow.|
Our girls having been born in early January, I can vividly picture (at least so far) what big present they got for Christmas each year and how they reacted to it, and what adventures we had during a particular summer. It gives me an easy reference, at least in round figures, what they were like, at least every six months or so.
I know things will blur over time, but at least for now, it's a very sweet command to have...and it makes me feel -- at least in some little ways -- that their babyhood wasn't all that long ago.
I'm linking up with Miss Cheryl at Twinfatuation again this week for "Way Back When-esday". Thanks so much for the prompt to dig back through the picture books, Cheryl! :)
