Happy 4th of July!!!
Mary-Gail (what a ham!) & Rebecca (so photogenic!)
Two little monkey's swinging in the tree...
Just swingin' in the shade, just swingin' in the shade,
What a glorious feeling, I'm swingin' in the shade...

Rebecca gave Mom a kiss just seconds after I cut the video off...wish I would have caught that
Mary-Gail is asking (and signing) for "mo" cookies.
This is what happens when there is NO COOKIE
I see the cookies. Give me the cookies. Cookies make me happy!
Mary-Gail, where's your diaper?!!!
OK. Time-out. This is really ironic. Rebecca took her diaper off yesterday morning. I panicked because she normally has a morning poop. Luckily, she didn't (phew!) and all was well (except for Rebecca's pee soaked socks & bedding). Both girls will pull their diapers off if they don't have bottoms on, but I thought for sure they were so tired from shopping that they would be zonked for their nap time...
Nope. Poop is much more interesting
Lovely little poop pellets
Yeah, there is some silver lining to this story.
P.S. I stripped Mary-Gail's tank and socks (why couldn't she have just pulled off her socks instead of her diaper?) and threw her in the tub. And yes, I did use the scrub brush on her hair, hands, legs, face, all over!
3 girls, all in their "infant" car seats
(Sorry, Auntie JoJo, we have to be 1-year old AND 20 lbs to face forward)
JoJo & I took yet another trip to IKEA. We loaded up the girls and cruised in the 'burb to Draper. JoJo magically grew 2 extra arms to keep peddling Nibs licorice pieces to Rebecca & Mary-Gail to calm their incessant cries for more! more! more!, and administering a bottle to Taylor while pumping. (And JoJo doesn't think she could have done twins. Yeah right!)
Mary-Gail and Rebecca managed to keep their "cool" and said "Hi!!" to just about everyone.

Her eyes always twinkle.
With promises from Isaac, our nephew, that the water in his 6' deep pool was warm, Tony & I loaded the girls up and walked down to Isaac's house to swim with the girls.
Yeah, right the water was warm! Maybe warm for his 12-yr old body, but not for our 18 month old girls' bodies.
Rebecca humored herself in the kiddy pool we brought, and then found this:
Mary-Gail stayed on the sidelines with Tony in the shade. Although we didn't go swimming, we still enjoyed our Monday afternoon
