If you ask me, a baby monitor with camera is an absolute MUST, especially when you have twins. And here’s why:
They’re always communicating. One way or another. Once we’ve put them to bed at night, they refuse to sleep within the hour. But come to think of it, I can hardly blame them. Would you go to sleep if you had a super funny twin sister who kept you company at night?
As the baby monitor will never fail to entertain us, we don’t even need to turn on our tv anymore. Just watching our twins is more than enough to make us laugh. Until they finally fall asleep that is. But that’s only a matter of time…
I’ll try and capture more of these little twin tales on screen in the near future.
By the way: in the morning they let us know they’re awake by jiggling the Ikea step stool back and forth. Just like you can see in the first video. The squeaking sound of it really sets your teeth on edge… aaaargh!! But hey, well, maybe it’s just a temporary thing. And it sure beats the sound of crying twins.
Have a good weekend everyone!
Today’s a special day. Exactly 38 years ago I was adopted from Indonesia, at the age of only 5 months. From that time I grew up with my adoptive family. We lived in a small village in the south of The Netherlands.
I got used to not having anyone around who in some way looks like me. I don’t have my mother’s eyes, I don’t have my father’s nose. That’s just how it is. Sometimes people would say: “You look like your brother!” Uh yeah… my parents adopted him also indeed… but he’s VIETNAMESE. So I guess they just meant he and I are both Asian. Whatever. It’s obviously not the same.
Which makes having children of my own now all the more special. Seeing pieces of myself for the first time in another human being. In two human beings even. So please don’t ever hesitate to tell me, when you think the twins look like me. I simply love it.
From now on August 24th will no longer be just a celebration of getting adopted and growing up in this beautiful country with parents who gave me more than I could ask for. To me it will also be a day of honoring my blood relatives. Not only the ones living here – my beautiful twins – but the ones in Indonesia as well.
Whooooah… we have been blogged! Another twinmom recently wrote really cool things about our twogs.
Fun fact: this nice twinmom-blogger is actually the lady who recently sold us the swim float thing.
Mara in the swim float thing. Lea preferred daddy’s lap.
Yep. That’s the thing.
Obviously the Wuzzeltwins and I feel extremely honored to be the subject of someone else’s blog. And so, to show our appreciation I’m returning the favor now by blogging about her blog. I’ll even promote the swim float thingy. Yeah I guess that’s just how bloggers roll, man.
Have a nice day y’all!
So spread the word on Twitter, Facebook and anything else you can think of! The Wuzzeltwins will be eternally grateful.
Today, again, I was inspired by a true happening…
Remember my first twug I designed earlier? As promised it was sent to Suzanne, the winner of the WuzzelTwins-contest. Well now, a couple of days later I found this in my mailbox:
Wow, I’d say Suzanne surely digs her twug. Love it!
I fully intend to keep this flow going, full force. Maybe someday I’ll even have my own Wuzzel-webshop, selling all kinds of Wuzzel-twugs. Also I was thinking of baby and kids clothes, bags and what not. If you have a suggestion, feel free to leave your comment below 🙂
Recently we bought this thing… … for the twins so they can swim together. Safely. You can imagine our joy when yesterday we went to the beach and brought the thing with us. By the way: interested in this supercool swim gadget (for TWINS obviously)? Check http://www.dubbelgeluk.com
…wuzzeltwins.com it is!
We dropped the ‘wordpress’-part. So that’s that. We’re gonna celebrate by taking an extra nap. Good night!
