Sometimes I still stare at them in disbelief. I have maybe said this before but my favorite part of twin rearing is that I have been given two OPPOSITE children at one time. Their differences are more apparent every day. It could not be sweeter.
James (big Jim, jamesey) continues to be my content little sweetie. He is tender as they come and bursts into tears at a firm "no." When Ellen (Elle, belle, Ellie bellie) hears a firm "no" she, for the most part, smirks or gives us a big Ellie grin. She loves cupboards, shelves, baskets of perfectly folded laundry and attempting to dive into the empty bathtub. Jamesey loves watching his sisters, playing peek-a-boo, looking at books in my lap and sitting in the bath. Standing on her own is Ellie's latest. Scooting backwards is Jamesey's only form of movement.
They both LOVE: their big sister, eating and nursing. They continue to grow like weeds especially big Jim. His nickname at birth was so funny when he was a tiny little alien newborn but now is perfectly fitting. He is a big baby with quite possibly the biggest and best smile I have ever seen.
