The Cakes, Revisited

What can we learn from this series of photos?
What conclusions can we draw about the twins?
#1. Bex does not get fed enough. (As evidenced by his small size).
He must steal from his younger litter-mate
in order to ensure proper nourishment.
#2. In this picture, there is one casual diner,
and one who believes eating is an event
to be attacked and conquered.
Let the body language help you decide which is which.
#3. While Dee contemplates crumbs,
Bex dreams of the day his mouth will
grow big enough to stuff a whole cake in to.
# 4. Stereotypical gender roles are already being developed.
Bex gazes with adoration upon his cake.
He even lovingly pats it. Dee just wonders how she'll
ever get those frosting stains out.

I could sit and watch them all day! Of course I'd never get anything done, but there is always tomorrow! Love the pictures, keep 'em coming! :)

Dee already understands what it takes to keep her girlish figure! And that bright orange bow in her hair is just too cute!

Bex eats just like all the males in my family...see how fast you can cram it in, 'cause they might not ever make that particular baked good ever again! lol

Elle,

No one else but you can take four random pictures of your kids eating cake and turn it into one of the most enjoyable and amusing posts I have read all morning long. You definitely have a great gift!

Love and Hugs ~ Kat

Couldn't you just watch them for hours on end!!!! They surely are so sweet individually, but together ... oh my gosh ... they are amazing!

BTW!!!! Just got my package! I love all my goodies! Thank you so much!!!!!!!

I can't believe how entertaining it was to watch the twins eat their cakes. I mean everyone just stood there and watched. I think we might have enjoyed it more than the twins ;)

Too cute!!!

Christina said...

I love how their personalities shine so differently. Does that make sense?

Um, what if I stare lovingly at my cake...does that mess up the stereotyping?! I do also wonder about the stains...

I am hoping the upwardly mobile are keeping you busy and that you haven't been hit by any nasty cold and flu bugs.
