It's Official...

It has officially begun. Marissa and Jessica are now babysitters! Yes, I am overwhelmed with this new status of my babies. How did they get old enough to be watching someone else's children? Where did the time go?

My girls are babysitting, even now, as I type this post. They are watching the cutest of twins, John and Isabella. The first time the girls started watching the twins was a doozy!! In fact, they met my husband at the backdoor as he came home from work, dropped both babies into his arms, and ran for cover! LOL The next time, which was last week, was Oh, SO much better. The babies just needed to get used to the girls and our home. They love the "woowoo" aka as Anabelle, our Dachshund. She is pretty good with them and loves the attention.

I keep calling them babies but I believe they are around 1 1/2 years old now. They are both beautiful children and have overcome the effects of their extra early birth . If I am correct, they were born at 26 weeks gestation. They were in the hospital for several months until they were 4 pounds or so. Maureen, their gorgeous mommy, has had her hands full, FOR SURE!

Today, the girls seem to have a great grasp on how to meet any and all situations. It makes me proud to see them care for these babies with so much love and natural ability. It also makes me happy to see them earning a little money for themselves. When you earn the money yourself, you are more apt to be more careful how you spend it and take better care of what you buy.

To see pictures of these cuties, visit my friend Laura Berrier's blog. She shot some candid shots of both kids at Heather and Joe Serna's recent wedding reception. Now, I am going to go check on my girls and see how they and the babies are doing. See you again soon.
