Photographs of my daughters, once a week, every week, this 2014. Week 17.
Can you imagine how hot this summer has been? These photographs were taken on Week 17 but this pretty much sums up our summer. In lieu of summer outings and beach trips, we had to think of summer activities they can do at home.
This 400-peso inflatable pool is probably the best investment we had all summer. We let the twins swim in their pool twice a day, (yes, twice) and I’m willing to bet that this is their new most favorite time of the day.
It’s probably their least favorite time of the day too (at least for Dawn), when it’s time to get up from the pool. Dawn would throw a tantrum, she would scream and cry and would refuse to get out and we would give her a 5-10 minute extension until her fingers and toes are all wrinkly and it’s absolutely time to get out of the pool. Our hearts would break having to remove her from the water, but we’re also amused. How can someone this small want something that much? :)
We’re constantly amazed, seeing them start to have their own preferences. The other day I tried 3 different colored hats on Rain, and she didn’t want all the hats except the mint colored one. She wouldn’t take it off! She would say “NO” when she doesn’t want what we’re offering her, and she would smile broadly when she likes it. Dawn, on the other hand, would squeal and do a little tap dance when she really likes something.
I don’t like using the word “amazing” unless absolutely necessary, but everyday just never runs out of things that amaze us about these two. No, really. Every. Single. Day.
