You kinda look familiar



They shared a womb for 35 weeks but up until the past couple days have been completely unaware of each other. I hear stories of twins comforted by sleeping together or being next to one another but I haven't gotten the sense that it matters one way or the other to the Babb boys. Just in the past few days however they have started to check each other out. They stare at each other and will smile and "talk". True to form, Maguire (nicknamed by us "The Detective") will lift his head and crane his neck to see what Keller is up to. He hates to miss anything going on around him. I can't wait until they can start entertaining each other-I need a break.

I am a teacher, not a barber


We are so busy with the boys and Mike's new job that we hardly have time for anything. Mike thought it would be a good idea for me to give him a haircut. He'd seen it done a thousand times and he has all the tools. He was convinced he could talk me through it. I told him that I didn't think I could do it. He insisted . . .
It was awful. I definitely COULDN"T do it. With every cut it just got worse and he got more frustrated with me. What's worse is that I could not stop laughing. In the end, he had to shave his head with Pixley as the audience. It took him a few hours to not be mad at me anymore and I think he learned his lesson.

Mike is famous

video

For those of you that don't know, Mike recently started his own business with a friend. They are doing mobile RV repair. They have a shop on Easton Drive and a trailer that serves as their mobile shop. It was so scary for us to start this when I was eight months pregnant! It had a slow start but is finally getting busy! So busy in fact that Mike isn't home until 7:00 some nights. Can you imagine what I look like on those nights? He has already had some funny stories about the people he has met and the RV's he has worked on. It has been a big change for him but a good change. This is his commercial that has started airing on Channel 23. Watch it and check out his website. http://www.mobilervrepair1.com/

Matchy Matchy


Before these guys were born, it was really fun to buy cute matchy outfits. Funny new mom. Little did I know that nobody would ever see them outside of Mike and I (unless you count the cats). It's not like we are taking them to many social events. Also, the second I put them in matching cute outfits, one inevitably spits up, drools or worse and needs to be changed. Do I change the other one so they match again? Heck no-I have enough to do. So, when they look especially adorable I have to take their picture-even if we don't leave the house.

A sea of babies


After days and days and days of being cooped up inside the house, June suggested a trip to Morro Bay to stay at our grandma's beach house. It would be all four of the kids! Seriously, it sounded like so much work to get ready and so much chaos once we got there but I was losing my mind and thought a change of scenery might be nice. I was right. It was crazy and hard but really nice to see the ocean and enjoy the fresh air.
People stare at us when we all go out together. It's a mixture of pity and amusement. We all tried to take a walk on the beach with the baby carriers but it was way too windy and turned out that trying to keep them covered was more trouble than it was worth.

Overall the trip was really fun with the exception of Jett throwing up in the bushes outside and passing the flu to our parents. At least we got out of the house . . .

testing, testing

Up until now I have avoided Myspace, Facebook and any of the others that I am unaware of. It seems so weird to me to have your life and picture splayed across the internet. And, who has the time to constantly update? But . . . my cousin Calgary suggested a blog. I have many relatives and friends that live far away and although our lives are not so exciting these days, I don't want these people to miss the opportunity to see our kids and watch them grow. I am inspired by Holly, a friend living in Albania. She blogs frequently and her blogs always make me laugh out loud. I will try to be entertaining but please remember that I am living on very little sleep. Please excuse any grammar, spelling or punctuation mistakes. Again, I'm going to blame it on no sleep and the dumbing down one experiences spending all day with three month olds.
