Two Peas in a Pod!

I have loved being able to watch Emmy and Ben interact as they have been growing-up. A little while ago if you would have asked me if they had a twin bond I would have said no. However, recently they have proved me wrong.

After Emmy gets out of the tub and I wrap her with her towel, she finds Ben's towel and takes it to him. The same thing happens with her bib. When Emmy is ready to eat she finds her pink bib and brings it to me and finds Ben's bib for me to put on him. Also, they are really good about sharing their treats and drinks with each other.

At doctor visits they both are very emotional. They will cry harder when the other one is being weighed, examined then when they are being examined. Also, when one is crying because they got in trouble or hurt the other will start whimpering along with them.

One day recently the babies' therapist asked Ben where Emmy was. Ben got so excited and ran to find Emmy. Emmy and Ben were both squealing when he found her. Emmy then proceeded to get out from under the table. After she got out, the both gave each other hugs and kisses.

During one of Hyrum's soccer games, I left Ben home with Brandon and took Emmy to the soccer game. After we came home, Ben was so excited to see Emmy he gave her a big hug and kiss. Also, for the next few minutes he proceeded to follow her around giving loves.

The really enjoy getting into mischief together. The other day, Emmy had our plug to our tub in her hand. She said some jabber to Ben, he responded back in jabber. Then Emmy gave to Bent the plug to the tub. Ben then took the plug and marched off to the toilet. Luckily, I had been watching this exchange and caught him just before he put the plug down the toilet. It makes you wonder what they were talking about.

They love to hold hands and giggle in the car. It is so cute! On the way to a doctors appointment they were holding hands. They were most likely holding hands for moral support.

Even though they fight sometimes together. You can really tell that they love the other one and worry about them. It has been a blessing having twins and love them very much. We are so happy to have them in our lives.

The picture below was taken as they first saw their daddy come home from school. Once again, you double click on the pages to make them bigger.

I love how much you talk about little things with your kids -- their personalities, daily routines, etc. It will be so fun for all of you to read about in years to come. What a great gift you are giving your children.
