TwiceToddlers Love Doing Things Themselves

My twins, they certainly love doing things themselves these days. Well, they have begun doing a lot of things themselves over the past year, but now, they really like doing things themselves. Take for instance turning on the oven, putting their food in the oven, taking their food out of the oven, taking the bread, turkey slices, cheese, bread and drinks out of the refrigerator. My twins also like folding their clothes and sometimes cleaning their own messes up in the Great Room, Living Room and in our Hallway.

The only place they do not really clean is their bedroom. Since my twins are still small in height, Twin "B", now Twin "A" carry both of the step stools around our home. Honestly, I have no idea where they got this idea from. More likely than not, from watching their kids cartoons. Well, both my twins are even learning to speak better and I think it is because I read to them. In fact, their vocabulary is getting bigger. Now, that could be due to them listening to Mommy and Daddy talk.

Anyway, they are growing up so fast in their independence, personalities and vocabulary. I still and will always call them my baby girls.


  1. I really enjoyed your "do it yourself" comment! My identical twin girls will be 3 in October and it is amazing how that simple phrase...."NO, I do it!" is used so incredibly often!!!

  2. I will always call my twins my "babies" too. Mine are younger than yours but I can relate because I have a 4 year old too. I get to see a 1/2 glimpse of what it will be like in 2 years (my twins are 2).
