Rug Rats!

If anyone wants to know what is keeping me from my card making lately, here is the answer!

I was playing on the floor with the babies last night, while Bill took Jordy to "the man store" - Loew's. At long last, almost 3 weeks after Josslyn started crawling, Brielle finally took off. She has been scooting along on her tummy or rolling to whatever object she wanted, she would get up on her hands and knees and rock back and forth, she would watch Josslyn crawling all over the house, but she wouldn't give it a try. Needless to say I couldn't get my camera fast enough to capture this first wonderful moment, especially for her parents.

These two videos should be one long one, maybe boring for most of you and if you aren't interested just click on to another blog. Anyway, the break comes in the middle when Josslyn threw the ball and hit Brielle in the head. So without further explanation, please sit back and enjoy the loves of my life, my completely time consuming precious ones and the reason why I can't get anything done at my crafting table lately....


  1. Precious, Precious babies. I would get nothing done but playing and loving on these two sweeties. I totally understand why you can't pull yourself away.
    Gosh, my heart aches for their parents they are missing so much. They are so fortunate to have you recording everything for them.
    What a precious person you must be Barb.
    Hugs to you my friend,
