There are many surprises I hadn't considered about being a new mom. Here are three which come to mind:
1. I never thought nine o'clock would be an obscene time to get a phone call.
2. That my babies' pediatrician would suggest I walk around the house topless. And he wasn't being fresh.
3. What are considered 'normal' sensory habits and patterns go out the window when you're 8 months old and figuring out your world.
You see with your ears,
hear with your nose and
smell with your tongue. Oh and feel with your mouth. Like, everything. :)
I love these pictures. Tony and I each held the twins arms and let them 'smell' the rosebush (to prevent accidental grabbing...there are thorns).
Surprisingly, or not surprisingly actually, they didn't quite know what to do.
And so licked the petals.
