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. :)

Times two.

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.


  1. I asked for some pointers after I had been just nursing for the first few weeks. He was super-cool with the question though!

  2. Walking around the house topless? Is he one of your neighbors? LOL!!

    Beautiful pics of the babies smelling the flowers! It's amazing to see the world through your children's eyes, isn't it? Especially when they're discovering something for the first time.
