Let's Get the Party Started!

Okay, so I am late to the game. Most of my adoption buds started their blogs during their process. I was too lazy or too busy or who knows what my excuse was, but it didn't get done. I started a myspace page and forced a couple of blogs, but never anything substantial. I wish I had started a blog from the beginning because there are so many things you forget as time goes on and I think the boys would appreciate being able to go back and see what their crazy mom was thinking during all of this. Okay, maybe also they could see how much work we put into this all....haha, j/k. I am now going to try to blog as much as possible so that I can remember all of the cool and not so cool things my little guys are doing. Plus, I am jealous that everyone has their super cool blogs and I wanna be like the cool kids. Of course, this thing will be a work in progress as I learn to navigate it. Enough of this boring chatter....back to the task on hand....jogging my memory for all those little milestones that I haven't recorded for posterity.

Ben & Seb are walking, running and getting into mischief. They escape from their corral and run off in two different directions with an evil and delighted giggle. Ben is a daredevil....he has taken to balancing on things....such as his ride along school bus or the kiddie rocking chair in the bedroom. Like standing up straight and raising his arms and I know if he could talk he would be saying, "Look ma, no hands." They both can catch a football and the way they knock eachother over and steal the ball and run off, I know they are future all american, heisman trophy winner USC Trojans...haha! Ben is the talker, although they both babble constantly. They are so smart and figure things out in record time. Their favorite foods are Cheerios, Pop Tarts, Rice Cakes, Jelly Sandwiches, Chicken Strips, Hot Dogs, French Fries and Donuts. This doesn't mean that it is all we feed them, but is their favorite all the same. Ben makes an assortment of funny faces and is going to be every teacher's nightmare in that he will be a straight A student, but the uncontrollable class clown. Sebastian is truly the charmer and can melt anyone with his smile. Watch out ladies...yeah, he will need his own phone line! They have several little tricks that they love to show off such as shaking their head and finger no with a devilish grin, shaking hands, laughing when they are in trouble, blowing kisses, showing off their belly buttons and the fact that they know several body parts by name. They wave hello and goodbye. They love the phone and any remote controls. They ask to play "This little piggy" and "the itsy bitsy spider". They love books. They love cars. They love animals. They love the dogs and share food with them constantly. The dogs love them too, probably because of the former. I haven't met a person who hasn't instantly fallen in love with them. They are like celebrity babies when out and about and we can't go on an outing without a million people coming over to meet them. They ask for Daddy when he is gone. They brighten my day from minute one of waking up because of the huge smile that they flash me upon my entrance into their room. I guess I will stop this sappy novela as no one is interested in all of this. I can't promise that more of this won't follow in my next entry.
Don't worry, they won't all be this long.....I hope.

I love the twins, and I love to read about how much you love them!
Thanks for all your help getting me prepared for what is ahead for us. You are awesome and I love you dearly!!

Oh my goodness, you started a blog, how exciting. But you need to start by posting a million pics of the twins! About the kiddie rocking chair. . . uh-hum, but you did see a recent post on my blog, right? A little baby standing and falling with said rocking chair?

I look forward to more posts from you. :)
