Today I Turned My Back for Two Seconds.

Ok, probably more like 2 minutes.  :)

And in that short amount of time the girls pulled out every single toy we own and made a new carpet for their bedroom.  It was immense!  But not uncommon.  These chiquitas are also very skilled at using just a half cup of cereal to decorate every room in the house.  It's pretty amazing. 

It was only last week, I had put Britt in her bed with a bottle so I could finish up a project in which I didn't need her grabby, little paws helping out.  Ash was innocently reading a book.  It was only 5 minutes and when I went back into their room, I found this:

Book Swimmer 1

Look at that smile. 

Book Swimmer 2

This may be an over share, but I couldn't pick just one!

Book Swimmer 3

Britt is just so stinkin' cute!

Book Swimmer 4

She thought it was fun to be swimming in a pile of books.

Book Swimmer 5

Ash was uber pleased with her handy work.

Book Swimmer 6

Cuteness aside, these kids are quick!  On Sunday Ash got a hold of one of her great-grandpa's blood pressure pills.  We're so blessed.  She took a small nibble and spit it all out.  Scared us all though.  Guess I better keep the back turning to an extreme minimum.

Kids are a nightmare, quick little nighmares.
Tabatha used to get naked in her playpen as soon as my back was turned... thank god she's grown out that habit!

Cutie. It's amazing what these little ones will do. One time I did the same thing while my daughter was in her crib. Unbeknownst to me, she had a full diaper and commenced to smear the contents all over the wall and crib with her hands. It was AWFUL! That taught me. Except that she started doing that in the grocery store once. All in her hair. Talk about being rejected by society! AAAAAAAHhhhh! :)

They are uber quick! I remember when Mica was that age, he would be standing on the arm of the couch with wood floors underneath. I'd quickly go grab him in fear that he would fall.

I love your shots! Thanks for sharing. You have super cute girls.

I hope her love for books continues and she grows.

Yep! They are quick ones. I'm glad Ash has a sense of "good taste."
