  Both of the babies love their siblings.  Dash is getting more and more attached to me when people he doesn't know are around.  He's worse when he has an ear infection.  If he gets on more in the next few months, he will be evaluated for tubes.  Emme doesn't seem to have those same problems as him.  They both still sit in their infant carriers...that's the longest we've ever kept a baby in one of those!  It's so convenient, so we are hoping they can stay at least until their first birthday before we move them into their "big" car seats.  We went to a friends house and she crawled around independently and had a good time, but Dash cried unless I held him.  The are starting to play with each other more and more.  I hear them laughing together.  I had to put their cribs next to each other, because Dash kept opening the shutters on his side.  Now when they wake up they are facing each other, usually talking and laughing.  It's pretty cute.  I can't wait for more interaction.  

I'm just now starting to go out more with them (by myself).  I've made a few trips to the grocery store & target with them.  It's definitely not very convenient, but it's a little easier than it was a few months ago.  I cook more and clean....two things I thought would never happen again!  : ) 

great minds think alike

We had a pretty low key Easter this year.  We've been steering clear of all nurseries for the twins, so we didn't go to church.  We've been missing it, but it's just so hard when you have a sick baby (let alone 2 sick babies).  We went over to my parents house, had brunch,  an Easter egg hunt, lots of playing and the kids stuffed themselves with candy all day long.
