Are we identical or fraternal twins?
(Ellie on left, Brylee right)
The look of disbelief, shock, or sometimes even horror on people's faces reminds me that I have four excuses to have a few, or maybe more than a few, extra white hairs on my head and be a little crazy sometimes. (Please feel free to remind my husband of that as well:-) But I also have four reasons to be very thankful.
Having two kids completely changed our lives, as I'm sure having even just one will do; but adding another two to the mix has completely changed everything again. I literally cannot leave the house by myself. Well...to be fair, I can leave the house, meaning I can get all four girls into the minivan (yes, of course we have a minivan) by myself. But that's as far as my freedom goes....because once I actually get somewhere, it takes two people to manage all four girls. We have two double strollers, therefore requiring two people to push them. Of course, they do make triple and quadruple strollers, but I'm fairly certain I wouldn't want to attempt an outing by myself anyway.
Devyn and Kinley love their new swing set!
People often ask if Devyn and Kinley have their own twin language, to which I respond, "No, not really." They are about as different as can be. Devyn is the loud and mischievous sister; while Kinley is the quiet and independent one. We get pretty excited when they actually interact with each other, as it doesn't happen very often. All this makes me wonder what Brylee and Ellie will be like as they get older. Will they be two peas in a pod, or opposites, like their big sisters?
The rough life of Brylee and Ellison.
Melts my heart!

Three at once!
"I hope someone will catch me!"-Kinley
Last weekend we went to the Children's Discovery Museum with the Hinton family. We had a blast!

And just because I want to remind her about this kind of stuff when she's older......
"WHO DID THIS?!?!?" -Mom "Maybe she won't notice." -Devyn
