Asher's shoe is a size 6.5 and Benjamin's is a 6. Their first steps in their big boy shoes were kind of tentative and wobbly, but then they took off! It was definitely bittersweet for me; I am both excited that I have such good walkers (runners), and having trouble reconciling the little boys running up and down the hall of the mall with the little babies who used to sleep in my arms.
Here is what else is new with us- Benjamin has a bit of a fascination with cleaning. He loves vacuums, brooms, and dustpans. Here are some pictures of him with his favorite not-toys:

The boys are in a phase of imitating everything we do. Today I made a fish-face at Asher, which he tried to imitate by flapping his mouth open and closed. I had him do it for my mom tonight, and she turned to look at him while trying to get something out of her teeth, and Asher instantly switched to imitating her by sticking his finger in his mouth. This morning Eric had them both doing downward dog with him.
They also like sticking out their tongues at us if we stick ours out at them:
Here is a picture of what started as a very sweet, brotherly hug. By the time I got back with the camera, this is what we had:
|Asher is hysterical.|
