Wordless Wednesday

It is Wednesday, isn’t it?   How convenient, I don’t have to think of any clever captions or excuses for posting these recent photos.


For those of you who like quizzing yourself on who’s who (you know who you are), the comments, linked below, have the answers.


Catching up

Jacob is catching up! We had a “well” visit today, complete with weight check. Josh is 18 lbs 15 oz, and Jacob is 18 lbs 6 oz, the first time they’ve been within a pound of each other. Both were 27″, and everything fell in the 50-75th percentile. I had to put “well” visit in quotes because we seemed to have more assorted maladies today than at a typical sick visit. Nothing serious, thankfully, just random rashes and a lot of snot. Ear infection falls in the “snot” category, I think…

At the risk of sounding like an exam problem from my Math for Liberal Arts class, the twins’ weight difference at birth was a 15% relative difference — extremely noticeable. Even though they’re still more than half a pound apart, the relative difference now is only 3%!

Happy Halloween!

We were an Angry Birds family this year, much to Noah’s delight.

Mia absolutely could not settle on which hat she wanted to wear.  I’m not sure how we talked her into “her” hat  for photos, but part of the deal was that she could wear the piggy hat for trick-or-treating. Last week she was all about the blue bird. Did we mention she’s two? Very much so, lately.

While we were all dressed up, I snapped Joshua and Jacob’s 6-month bear photo.  Halfway through the shoot, I realized that I had the boys backwards — the 1w, 2w, 3w, 4w, 2m, 3m, 4m, and 5m photos all have Jacob on the left because that’s how I happened to place them the first time.  Oops!

On Thursday we had a practice run in our costumes for Boo-da Fest, a fun little small-town Halloween festival.
