I wanted to tell the story behind the page. Cate and Lucy are SO funny right now.
They laugh at each other, hug and kiss each other, and beat the you know what out of each other. I wish I was kidding on that last one, but I'm not. I'm talking "2 stooges" here. Face slapping, hair pulling, eye poking. Good times.
They call each other "She She"- Lucy and "Cake"-Cate. And I love it SO MUCH I can hardly stand it.
I don't ever want to forget it.
Funny story. Jimmy told me that the other night they were both in their high chairs (quite some distance apart) and Cate started biting her hand…
Sidenote: They are in that "I am two" phase where if you tell them "No" they get so frustrated that they are beside themselves and don't know what to do. They get so frenzied that sometimes they go "ARRRRR" and bite their own hands. HAHAHAH!
I know how that feels…don't you? I might try it, hehehe.
Back to the story.
So "Cake" starts biting her own hand and "She She" starts screaming "Cake NO, no bite!" "OUCH!" and holding her own hand and crying. Bahahaha. Twin empathy?
They are nuts, y'all. NUTS.
Okay, that's it for today. Hope you enjoyed the long rambly story and the layout. 🙂
