Our favorite family activity is to go on walks and hikes with them. It's so much fun seeing them explore every grass, tree, bug, squirrel, and rock during their walks.
Part of their daily routine involves dancing too, here's a preview of their dancing moves (including Breakdancing):
The girls are showing affection towards each other. Its super adorable seeing them hug, kiss and dance together. Here's a video of them as 'Best Friends':
Keira and Naomi also love the mirror and kissing, see for yourself!
As for being big kids, well this video explains it all. They were fairly young to start climbing out of their crib (18 months old) and of course, accelerated to climbing on and out of everything possible, see for yourself! There is no fear in these girls!
The girls are super independent now, they play well by themselves at play gyms or at home. Naomi has absolutely no fear when it comes to running off by herself at a jungle gym, scaling up and down mega slides. Keira is still a little hesitant but feels confident when Naomi is around.
Rick and I have been helping out another friend of ours with new born twins as well as providing mental support to other friends with twins. I keep telling everyone that raising twins is super crazy during the first year, but after every milestone (sitting up, crawling, walking, talking) your life becomes easier. I feel like I'm reaping the rewards now, they are so easy to take care of, they keep each other company and make my life easy, I feel very lucky.
Rick and I have been very busy with work, working a lot of overtime, working well into the early mornings and travelling as well as doing kitchen renovations and building our real estate portfolio. Despite our workaholic lives, we managed to find time to travel to Kingston, leaving the girls with our nanny for one night!
Until next time...
