Overheard...

This morning Maggie and Brooklyn were back in maggies room playing. I'm not entirely sure what they were doing, but this is what I overheard as I was cleaning up in the kitchen.

Brooklyn: ":gasp: Oh Maggie, this is adorable picture Maggie EVER I saw. So adorable. Oh, I love it." (this is verbatim, as I wrote it down immediately upon hearing it)

Maggie: "Yea....Dor-a-ble."


Who knows what picture was so ADORABLE, but the conversation was hysterical. Brooklyn went on for a minute more just exclaiming the darlingness of the mystery picture.


Speaking of adorable pictures...I took these a couple of weeks ago. Again, who knows what was going on, apparently a little "cawfee twalk" amongst the girls. They really are so funny together, especially when they're happy.




Can you even believe it Brookie? She asks. Would you look at Brooklyns crossed leg and sipping on her cup. Seriously!


They have had the BEST 2 weeks together. Every morning the first words out of Maggies mouth are "Daddy sleeping? Daddy owie his tummy?" And then as soon as Brooklyn shows up, Maggies exclaims with total excitement "Brookie is HOME!" I wish I could record their mornings of play. They go back and forth between the front room and Maggies room (as that is the only places they CAN go) and they're always on the go. Either going to "the gym", taking a shower, going to the doctor (docker), going home, etc. One morning I found them sitting on the coffee table, Maggie was using an old makeup brush on Brooklyns face and I heard her saying "Brookie you bootful." They will each take turns putting "makeup on" and telling eachother how pretty they are. And if they aren't beautifying themselves, then they're playing Mommy to their babies, wrapping them in blankets, feeding them, putting them to bed, etc. Seriously, it is so freaking adorable. Even though they make big messes and frustrate me with their whining and fighting at times, they ultimately are just so freaking fun and cute and always crack me up. I'm grateful for each day that I get to be home and experience their take on the world.

I am loving the crossing of the knees. I love when little kids catch on to grown-up mannerisms! I also just wanted to tell you how proud I am of you with your triathlon. I am sorry about the flat tires! But nonetheless I am so happy for you. That is just awesome! When is the next one?
