Another year has past so quickly, some how over the last year the little bits of baby left in you guys has disappeared and now I have little people.
Your going to school 2 days a week and flourishing. Nothing but good reports come home and how well mannered and what good listeners you are(at least it happens at school if not at home)
The biggest change for you two this year was we moved to a bigger house only 3 blocks away but I didn't realize how much we uprooted everything you were comfortable with. For the first time in your lives we had you start sleeping in separate rooms. Lauren you loved this idea, Colin you were terrified. I started to beg Lauren the 1st night there if you could sleep in her room and you said "Mom I've been waiting my whole life for my own room". I knew I had to just tough it out and help him learn to not be scared. 3 months later we still have sleep issues since the change from both of you but we will get through this.
Over the last year the benefits of having twins has become what great playmates you are to each other, this of course usually ends in fighting but for a little while I can get stuff done!
I was never a girly girl so its funny that I have been blessed with one. Oh my Lauren you are such a girly girl(that can also stomp in mud puddles and play in dirt of course) You have a huge passion for the Disney Princesses and I did nothing to encourage this. You love dress up clothes and those cheap plastic dress up shoes. You told me just the other day "a girl can never have to many tiaras". Your bedroom is princess themed and you would like it painted pink and purple but I think we will stick to princess wall decals. You love animals, especially cats and horses. Almost every morning you tell me you dreamed of horses, unicorns, dress ups and accessories. A major event for you(well maybe just mommy) was that you got your tonsils and adenoids removed in August. Best thing we ever did for you and you were such a trooper. You no longer snore and have not gotten a sinus infection since! You have been dancing for a year now and LOVE it!!
