The twins are turning 3 today. THREE. How did this happen? Seems like just yesterday they were infants. We had some family over this past weekend to celebrate. The twins had been going on and on about how they wanted boat cake. No clue where they got that idea. You may remember I posted last year that the store bought cakes had gotten so expensive that I planned to start making my own. Well I drove all over town to find two plastic boats and took the easy way out on "boat cake". I made my grandmother's recipe for Indiana Chocolate cake and turned the cream cheese frosting blue. I was scared the twins would be disappointed, but they were delighted.
We did candles on individual pieces of cake again. The twins had just had a cold, so we didn't want to spread germs.
Afterwards, there was the added bonus of licking cream cheese frosting off the bottom of the boats.
A little time on the porch swing blowing bubbles and hanging out with the grandparents. The baby my mom has is Dean, the newest cousin!
Cort hangs out with his special buddy, Pop Pop, who made Cort potato salad special, because it is one of Cort's favorite things. And Pop Pop does make the best potato salad for the past 20+ years - if you remember Justin Wilson it is one of his recipes.
For their birthday, the twins got to break out of their cribs! We went straight from cribs to big boy beds. They are delighted with their new bunk bed.
So far so good, although I have had to separate them at times for nap. Cort climbs down and gets into bed with Reid. So I have started putting him in Pierce's room to nap. They do well at night at least.
So happy 3 years to Cort and Reid! If you missed their original birth story, you can find it here. These two bring me so much joy. They are just growing up too fast! Special thanks to those who visited and/or sent wonderful gifts for the twins' birthday! We are thankful for all you do for them.
