Fourth of July

I know that it's almost the end of July but we had a great 4th. YiaYia sent some awesome pinwheels and outfits so we went to the zoo to show off. They love their shades from Uncle Roy (or "Unkul Royee" as Ava would say) and they wore them all the way to the park.

Eat your peas!

Yesterday Noah and Ava ate an entire bag of peas! I was only going to give them a handful each but they kept asking for more! I figured that I would indulge them and just kept on giving them peas. Now, for those of you who haven't seen a toddler eat, that doesn't mean that they actually ate an entire bag. There were of course those lost to their desire to make sure the dog is well fed, those that were tucked away for safe keeping under their bums, and of course, the stray pea who just happened to wander into Noah's ear canal.

No... he wouldn't... look at that face!

Oh yes he would!

At least I can add pea removal skills to my resume!

Those crazy kids!

On a happy note, Noah and Ava have been cracking me up lately. Here are just a few of their antics:

I tied Ava's hair up yesterday and Noah insisted that I tie his up as well. I figured I'd let him wear it for as long as he wanted. So we went to the grocery store where the cashier commented about how beautiful my two girls are. He later lathered up his whale spout with banana which made for a rockin mohawk when I took the hair tie out.

I took Ava on a "date" a couple weeks back and Appa and Noah stayed home and hung out. I put her in the carrier and her weight kept pulling down my shirt so I kept pulling it up. Now anytime I wear a remotely low cut shirt (you all know how provocative my wardrobe is), Ava reaches up, pulls my shirt up and holds it together. Thanks Ava!

They are now clear on the "no biting" idea but now everything that hurts them is a bite. So one of them bonks their head, all I hear from both of them is biiiiite! but I can't find a single bite mark.

They are quickly developing their vocabulary in their own twins language. Ava just told Noah "bee bo be ba" and he came and sat down next to her. If only I could crack the code!

Noah decided that Ava should give him a piggy back ride. It went about as well as you'd expect:

Ava is quite the little climber:

They are not fans of club soda!

They love running around Appa's office though!
