The fun thing about Colorado is that it snows. And when it snows, we play!

The kids are getting lots of lovin'. I think my arm muscles have atrophied for how often Mimi holds Grey. Be prepared to see lots of Colorado fun!

Instead, I soak in their sweet sleeping bodies. I giggle how Dash will, when he's decided to sleep, put down his book, flip to his side, and promptly zonk out. And I smile how Liam just wants one more hug before he's ready to rest. And I sigh with contentment as Grey snoozes in his swaddle but laugh at how quickly and unexpectedly he sneaks out his arm. If that boy could have a binky in his mouth and a hand to hold, he'd be the happiest sleeper there is.
So sleep as long as you want, my sweet babies, you're pretty cute that way.
P.S. Remember when the twins looked like this?

Dash has moments of seriousness and moments of extreme silliness. Sometimes he's calmly going about his business and then the next minute he's flopping around the room like a fish.
Dash is sometimes hesitant in new situations and gets nervous sometimes. Two stories: the boys have always been scared of the vacuum but one day I needed to clean the stairs and thought I'd try it while they were awake. I had them on either side of me and turned on the vacuum. I looked at Liam and he was slightly nervous but okay. I looked at Dash and he was all the way down the hall, hands flailing above his head, fleeing for safety. Also, we once wandered into a Rainforest Cafe shop and when Dash saw the fake snake winding down from the ceiling, his face became panic-stricken and positively dragged me out of the store.
Dash is a really good imitator. He likes to mimic sounds a lot. Sometimes he mimics Grey and it takes me a moment before I realize it's not the baby. And he likes to recreate the faces he sees in pictures. Oh, and my favorite thing he says is "ohhhh myyyyy goodnehhhhss!"
Love my Dashi!

Liam can be an uber goof. Making funny faces and wiggling all silly. He's very free with his laughs and usually puts his whole belly into it.
As always, he really likes to be involved. Which I think goes hand in hand with wanting to please people. He's very agreeable to suggestions and willing to try new things. So many times throughout the day, you'll find him answering, "yes," very carefully pronounced and coupled with very deliberate head nodding.
He really really likes hugs. The thing I hear the most from him is, "mommy... huuug." Then he'll wrap his little body around my torso and snuggle. He's the sweetest little sweetie.
Love my Leemer!

last year. Dash flat out refused but Liam was alright with it. A little hesitant but he did it.

(And you know how I said the boys were done getting up in the middle of the night? Ignore that because it's not true. Sigh.)

This is it, the last post about our trip back to Illinois. Once you're done drying your eyes, continue reading about a few funny/fun little things that I can't forget to mention.
And that's all I got.
