sooie sooie

Howdy friends,

welcome back to the 4 Webb's adventures. After being around Kendra's family for almost a full 6 weeks we are settling back into normal life. Marriage is described as, "enjoying the mundane together" and I think the same can be said for married with children. Not every day can be an episode of John and Kate Plus 8 so we just take each new interesting part of the day as it comes.

Every night at 6:00 PM we have bath time and all we have to do is stand in the hallway and say, "bath time!" Easton and Layla come crawling down the hallway at a lightening fast pace. Here's a simple video clip of them heading towards the tub like pigs to a slop trough with a "Sooie, Sooie" call. Nothing brings the babies in like turning on the bath water. I wonder if most babies love bath time this much? The video isn't all that exciting, but does show how eager the twins are to splash around.

On another night I caught a picture of Layla waiting anxiously peering over into the tub while the water runs. She looks like a doll, but is growing into a little girl more every day.

I placed Easton in his crib while Kendra put pajamas on Layla. His hoodie towel fell down over his eyes and he thought it was funny to play peek-a-boo with us over the top of the crib. He's laughing so hard his eyes are squinting closed, which is rare for Easton.

The twins are finally starting respond and act like we do. Easton tries to feed me some of his food. Layla puts toys in our hands and we play the "give and take" game. The scary part is some day soon they will be imitating every gesture we make and every word we say. The idea that imitation is the most sincere form of flattery may be true, but I guess we'll see soon enough.

See you soon.
