Doubling the Fun with Twins

September 12, 2016  •  Leave a Comment

I have always been fascinated by twins.  Growing up I knew several sets of twins.  There were Jean and Joan in grade school.  The Foley brother twins.  Heck, the Monroe family in our neighborhood had two sets of twins.  While I don't remember ever wanting to be a twin, I thought that twins were the coolest thing.  An instant best friend, I figured.  Someone to switch identity with and fool your teachers.  A constant source of a second wardrobe.

Fast forward several years and I was super excited when friends of mine began to become parents. . .of twins!  So imagine my excitement when I had a chance to spend a Saturday morning with my friends Dana and Christian, and their adorable twin girls, Paige and Emerson!  

One of the most fascinating things about these two cuties is that after spending five minutes or less with them, I quickly forgot that they were twins.  Paige and Emerson are their own unique little beings.  They each have their own adorable look and their own endearing personality.  They just happen to be born on the same day.

I love it when I can hang out with a family and feel like I'm a part of their life, if only for a day, and yet be an observer (and recorder) of their family routines and special moments.  Saturday morning breakfasts that begin with the clinking of cups of coffee and little plastic mugs. .  .

After breakfast there wasn't a lot of structure to our time together, and I loved it!  I was along for the ride.  Paige and Emerson were up for just about anything, from playing dress-up, to expressing themselves as little artists, to even belting out a few karaoke tunes!

But eventually, even this dynamic duo needed a little down time.

We sure had fun.  Thank you, Dana, Christian, Paige and Emerson, for inviting me into your home and lives.  By the way, if you happen to run into these two, be sure to wish them a happy 4th birthday.  I heard that it's coming up very soon!
