    ah.... yay for the nap-time bliss! Is Emmy left-handed? (I know, such a Korean thing to notice things like that...) She's going to be an artiste like momma, huh?

    Beautiful picture - I think that top picture is still my favorite so far of the two.

    ssshhh, let's not wake them up...

    why is it that the quiet you experience when your two kids are napping at the same time is so much better than any other sound in the world?

    hello hello! i didn't know you guys were facing military life too. so good to know that! wouldn't it be cool to end up in korea at the same time?

    and yes, life with a newborn and a toddler is very very nutty. ah!

    i can't believe you're not napping, too!

    (trust me, it gets better and easier . . . you'll find your Mom x 2 style very soon.)

    Mama Nabi: Nope, Emmy's right-handed as far as I can tell... but she does like to experiment a bit! Daddy trained himself to be ambidextrous so maybe she has that nutty gene too. :)

    And please don't forget to grant me access to the super secret photo site!

    I'm with Angie. Why aren't you napping too, silly Mama? Although of course, I'm glad you're blogging instead. :)

    What a great post! I love the black and white pic of the girls. Beautiful.
