He looks a little confused and concerned because of this...

But soon he warmed up to the idea...

....although Twin B never did. He just solemnly held the stick the entire time....

Still, what with these...

That was so heartwarming! I wish I had done that with my kids. Give him a big hug for me.

Happy Birthday, Baby Hippo!!! Looks like a great day!! :) I love his nick name too. I also like his birthday pic where the heals of his socks are halfway up his foot. That happened to my huge kids too! :)

It had been a while since I'd stopped by, but I didn't realize it had been THAT long. I can't believe how big your twins and the baby have gotten. What little dolls they are!

Oh my goodness. I just snorted about your mother's comment. That is exactly the kind of comment MY mother would leave on my blog, and I especially love the "Anonymous" and then the signature. :) That's what mothers are for, right?
