WFMW and splash time

Hi friends and family,

At some point I won't be able post pictures of Easton and Layla in the bathtub so I will make the most of it while it lasts. Layla still does the sign language for bath when we ask her, "what time is it?" She trots over to the bath tub signing all the way. Once in the tub the two of them splash with their hands and slosh with their feet so much that whoever is giving the bath gets a free shower in the process. Easton loves the wind up dolphin even though it never really worked.

The scratch on his forehead is from taking a digger into the doormat on the back porch of Oma and Opa's house. It happens to the best of us...

Layla's whole body tenses up as she locks her legs and flails them around like oars of a canoe.

Layla's bottom jaw goes sideways sometimes when she tries to verbalize her intensity through words. usually that sounds like, "dee-dee-dee-dee-DEE" and then on to the next vowel-consonant combo.

The last couple of days begin with Oma, Opa, and I leaving for work while Kendra spends the day with the twins by herself. We all hate to leave, but look forward to coming home to get cuddles and hugs from the twins.

And now for this weeks edition of WFMW (Works For Me Wednesday) where I show what indispensible toys and tools we've discovered while parenting twins.

Here we have the Kiddopotamus bib on display. You might think we are advocating the Boon Spoon "bender", but those are new additions to the babies repertoire and have yet to be proven successful.

Anyway, the Bibbity Kiddopotamus Rinse & Roll Bib are:

1. easy to clean
2. pBA free (i just learned what that means)
3. flexible
4. functional crumb catcher (very cool)
5. rolls into a small, compact unit that fits into the diaper bag
6. three adjustable size fittings around the neck

The only downside is: no cheesy saying on the front. :( OK, maybe one other downside... the corners are starting to tear after being used 4 times per day for over a year. Guess we should have searched for the "100% indestructible titanium" version?

By the way, I'm on facebook now after much harassment from others who are more technologically savvy. Don't expect me to chime in every time I yawn or turn left at a green light because I'm not so narcissistic to think anyone cares to know about my life at that level.

Easton and Layla though... now THOSE two characters are worth blogging about.

See you soon

Those bath pictures are so cute! I can't wait until mine can take baths without me in there too so I can take pictures. One of my twins, Cora, was TERRIFIED of the bath as a newborn. We dreaded it every time because she would scream the entire time and it would break our hearts to see her so scared. Now, she can't wait for it! She loves to splash and doesn't even mind getting water in her face. Something my 4 year-old, Abby, still hates.

You should try the Kiddopotamus Tiny Diner Placemat. We love it!! It too cleans well, rolls up small and is a life saver at restaurants when you want to put food on the table for them to eat!!! We used the same one for both Abby and Rowan!

Hi Brandi,

I'm glad to hear the fear is gone for the twins and now it's fun time! twins in the tub somehow leads to greater than two times the amount of splashing and water on the floor compared to one baby. I look forward to bath time every night almost as much as the babies.

Hello Coleen,

We also have the placemats and I agree how valuable they are. We only use them when we go out for meals though, so they don't get as much use. also, the little suction cup things only stick to certain surfaces, but they are still useful!
