So, you know how once a baby figure out that they can control their legs they like to bring their legs straight up and then drop then back down? I call them "ploppers." I'll often listen at the cracked door of the twins room and know that they're not yet asleep or they just woke up by the "thud-thud-thud" of those leg lifts and drops. It cracks me up to watch them lift and drop, lift and drop. So, the other night I put the twins to bed and was brushing my teeth when all of a sudden I heard a really loud "thud-thud-thud," but this time it wasn't coming from the babies room. I peered around the corner to my bedroom to find Brandon lying flat on his back doing "ploppers" on the bed. I laughed so hard I literally cried. "Hey, don't knock it till you've tried it," was all he had to say. He gets a kick out of imitating Jack and Jasmine - as you've already discovered in the pic above.

Baby update

Jack and Jasmine are 6 and a half months now. I can't believe time has flown by so quickly. They are both sitting up. Jasmine loves to try new foods, Jack is still favoring the bottle. Jaz claps her hands and rolls over. Jack says, "ba ba ba ba." They had their shots yesterday and Jack is super miserable - low grade fever and incessant crying. Poor little guy. Poor mama - I was up every half hour with him last night until 4:30 am when he graciously let me sleep two solid hours before waking me at 6:30 again. Brandon took the morning shift from there and I slept until 10 am!

Looking back at this picture makes me cry. They are so floppy and still furry and tiny here - just 7 days old and 6 and 7 lbs each. Little sweeties.
