It was my clever intention to "interview" the twins for this blog post. I would ask them questions on camera and they would supply the cute, smiley, cooing answers. Hmmm. Somehow it went horribly awry. For the better part of an hour I tried to make a suitably funny video. The following about sums up my efforts:
I gave up and just put them side by side on the floor. I thought I could at least get some video of them kicking around together. But what I got was so much better than that.
From the moment the twins were born, they have been separated. They didn't share a bassinet in the hospital, they sleep in separate rooms at home, and they rarely see each other during the day as their nap schedules don't coincide. The few times they are together, they only know the other is there from the occassional whacking from a wayward arm or leg. That's why this next video is precious to me. Bex sees Dee pretty early on in the video. Then all of a sudden, Dee trains her eyes on Bex, and they seem to go still, regarding eachother. A few seconds later, Dee erupts with a shriek, as if in recognition. "Hey, my old wombmate! I know you!" Maybe it's the beginning of their "twinspeak". I wonder what they are saying to each other?
Dee: "Hi old wombie!"
Bex:"How ya been?"
D:"Oh, you know, just chillin' in my crib".
B: "You been stayin' up nights?"
D: "Nah, they got hip to my game. Now I do the daytime gig".
B: "Hey, you really wanna freak 'em out? Let's not poop for a week. Mom'll go nuts!"
D: "hee hee, yeah!"
John 15:19 (NIV) If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you.
What We Do
We're a composting, rain-water-collecting, clotheslining, organic-backyard-farming, organic-food-eating, reusable-bag-toting, backyard-chicken-raising family that strives to put God first in everything we say and do. (Is there a political party for that?)
