One of the benefits of staying home full-time with twin toddlers is witnessing their milestones. I get to see them learn new things every day. I watch over them as they eat, play, and laugh together. We share a common language. They know by the tone of my voice when I'm joking and when I'm serious; I understand what they mean when they ask, "Where's my effens?" or "Can I have mo seal?"
On the other hand, because I'm with them every day, I don't notice the small changes that strike others as slightly miraculous. Friends who haven't seen the girls in a while will exclaim, "I can't believe how tall they're getting!" or "Wow! Look how long their hair is!"
My girls are growing up.
Dinner last night: chicken and rice enchiladas, refried beans, corn
