Can You Tell the Difference?

Can you tell the difference between this picture

and this one?
Katie seems to have inherited the funny face gene. It's a time-honored tradition in my family. Make the yuckiest face you can when someone points a camera at you.

How to Escape from a Bouncy Seat

I can't do a posting of just Katie without doing one of Charlotte too. Charlotte is our escape artist. She has started really moving around and trying to get out of anything we put her in. Above is a picture of the first time I noticed her trying to get out of her bouncy seat. I hadn't even realized what she was doing until she started crying. Yes, she started crying, and I took a picture instead of trying to comfort her. I might be a bad mother.

Here is a picture of Charlotte a little later when she got a little more comfortable with escaping from the bouncy seat. Just to reassure those of you who are worried, no babies started crying during the taking of this picture. In fact, she got all the way out and was pretty happy with herself because she got to roll around on the office floor. Ahhhh..... what baby doesn't love to get into her dad's computer cables? Good times.

Evolution of a Baby Fro

Katie kind of has an awesome baby fro. People always ask me what I do to her hair to make it stick up like that. Apparently it comes from Jared's side of the family. His mom tells me one of his brothers also had a fro as a baby. So here is a picture of her when her hair started growing.

Here is a more recent picture that shows her hair a little longer.

Finally, here is a picture I just took this week that shows the true awesomeness of Katie's fro.

Eating My Sister's Head

I know I promised a bunch of lies to make our lives sound more exciting, but I'm not making this up. One of the girls' favorite past times is trying to eat each other's heads. It's a little strange, but they've been doing it their entire short lives. Hopefully, they'll grow out of it. Here is Katie eating Charlotte's head when they were only a few weeks old.

Here Katie is at about 3 months getting her sister again.
Now, lest you think Katie is the only one who does this, here is a picture of Charlotte preparing to get Katie on Halloween. I took the picture a little too early, so you missed the big finish.
By the time I got Katie away, the whole side of her head was damp. Sorry for not rescuing you earlier!

Inaugural Post

Ok, so hello. I'm not sure I have anything fantabulous to say, but here is my new blog about my family's very very exciting life. Um, I already can't think of what to say. Maybe I'll introduce myself. I'm Jessica, wife of Jared (computer programmer extraordinaire) and mom of Charlotte and Katie (twin six-month old stinkers). As they are infinitely cuter than I am, I posted a picture of them to go along with our inaugural post. Katie is on the left and Charlotte is on the right.

Until about six months ago, I was a technical writer for a software company. Now I work part-time from home as a technical writer for that same software company. So that's me and my family. I'm a little boring, but I never really noticed until I tried to write a blog posting about myself. Ha! I guess I'll try to liven it up next time by making up a lot of lies. Ok bye!
