Quick post - babies are sleeping. First day in a long time without a family member from Italy in the house, and I had to let them cry a bit to fall asleep for their naps, since they're so used to always having someone around to rock them to sleep, but I'm really proud of myself for getting them both down (knock on wood!!!! Stay asleep please, babies!).

They're almost eight months old! It's hard to believe. Stay tuned for an eight-month post.

I tried to get them into a pre-school part time, and they are already full for next year, with one person on the waiting list. I'm starting to try to come up with other alternatives, although my in-laws will be here in April, probably, and then we'll be going to Italy this summer (hopefully), so it might be best to come up with options starting in the fall. In any case, they are still little and they are actually pretty manageable, it's just that there are a lot of things that I need to do that I can't get done.

But that's boring! Let's see a few pictures!

Tadpole and Turtle finding new ways to use the stroller:

  1. Woo hoo! Yay for pics!

    They are ADORABLE! How has it been 8 months already?

  2. Gosh they're growing! You're on the ball with pre-school - I hope you find something; we don't even have the option where we live.

  3. Wow, they are so big! Can't believe it. And cute as pie :).

  4. your new kitchen looks gorgeous! I can't wait to see pics of it all done! The twins are just too much cuteness! ;)


Thanks for sharing your thoughts!
