Diaper box

Hi friends and family,

Welcome to the middle of the week! Some of you can't wait for it to be over and the weekend to get here. And others, like me, wish there were more days in the week because work is so busy. Either way, it is what it is and at some point you accept that you can't change the number of days in the week... even with Daylight Saving Time.

Easton and Layla decided to ditch the old, worn out Costco box and traded up a model to the diaper box. Not only does it seat two

I started to use the Costco box, but took a corner too sharp and Layla rolled out onto the carpet. The diaper box seemed like a good way to prevent that kind of thing so now we're making the best of it until the sides bust out. It doubles as a bulky weight for our power lifting baby, Layla.

Just look at her concentration and strength! She carried the box all over the house and neither of us can figure out why. At one point she was holding it up over her head and attempting to walk at the same time.

As for Easton, his formula for contentment at night is fairly simple:

Thumb + Nunu blanket + Daddy = Sleepy time.

Dustin and Michaela commented on the beads Easton is wearing a few of the pictures so here's the story behind them. Kendra went to Old Navy to shop for baby shoes and she spotted the beads for $1. Usually she finds a toy in the store (or anything that keeps the attention of the twins) and lets them play with it as she shops around. If it's cheap enough and proves to be entertaining for the either baby then she buys it! If it ends up on the floor of the store or thrown at a unsuspecting customer, then she doesn't buy it. Layla is only interested in the beads as a weapon when she swings it around, so we had to take hers away. :) However, Easton loves to wear 'em and inspect each and every bead.

Also, he'll be well equipped if he ever goes to Mardi Gras. Easton is ready to parrrrty! just kidding, mom...

I've decided to do a weekly product review and will probably start that on Monday. I randomly throw in a thought or two on some of our baby related purchases, but a more formal regularity of the reviews is definitely in order. In case you haven't noticed I'm a big fan of informed consuming and the only thing worse than no information is bad information. Don't worry, I'll save you the trouble of doing all the research and experiencing "buy then return" cycles. After all... If it's good enough for Easton and Layla, then it's got to be the best. This idea falls under what my cousin calls, WFM (Works For Me) on her blog.

good night everyone. Enjoy this rare moment of motionless Layla

See you soon.

I'm releived to hear other babies like Rowan have the same facination! Maybe Babies 'R Us should stock beads so we wouldn't have to buy them at Old Navy and other places, right?
