The twins are twenty months old. They are little BOYS. I don't think I can call them babies anymore. They don't have a lot of words yet but still manage to communicate and they understand a lot. They are a bit more demanding than when they were infants (if you can believe that) since they get into everything -including the oven! (technically not inside the oven, but opening it and playing with the racks.) Some things are easier now and some things (like finding time to take a shower!) are not.
I'm toying with the idea of sending them to a child care center two days per week. I want them to have more socialization and exposure to activities that I don't have the time or skills to show them. (crafts anyone?) I definitely want to do this for at least pre-school when they turn three but maybe sooner. Cost is a huge factor as part-time day care will stretch my already tight budget at least another $100 per week. Sweet Potato's food allergies adds another layer of concern. And my preference so far has been to spend every waking moment with the boys (theirs and mine) that I can but I'm starting to feel okay about going out to dinner or having a few hours during a weekend day to get some things done or have personal time. We will see.
That's all I have for now. Oh that, and some photos!
