This is SO true. The boys will just eat you out of house and home. I dread the teenage years with my girls.

We've just started with tantrums and Reagan is SO dramatic. She gets mad, throws herself down and rolls around on the floor whining. Distraction never works when she gets like that. But for the most part they're pretty good so far. They get into everything and follow me everywhere - does separation anxiety ever end? My nephew is 18 months old and he is SO much more active and into everything than my girls are. They sit and play, my nephew doesn't stop moving ever.

The eating cracks me up. For breakfast they used to split a banana, a waffle and a yogurt and now they are each having their own banana and waffle and splitting the yogurt. Even that feels like OMG, they're eating 14 bananas a week! I'm so used to making one sandwich, one bowl of oatmeal, etc that making one for each of them seems like they are eating me out of house and home already! I can't even imagine teenage boy years!

As for tantrums, Emmett has them but much less frequently now than a month or two ago. I just ignore them and he stops soon after. He doesn't really do it when we're out and about yet, thank god. Trying to distract or cuddle him during one though, omg, it makes him so mad! :)

Two things - One: You are just validating my worst fears with this. I'm terrified - TERRIFIED of my twins becoming mobile and becoming toddlers!

Two: I LOVE seeing the photos of all of your twins! They may be terrifying toddlers, but they are all so adorable!

I feel your pain....on every level. I just wanted t say that we didn't do toddler beds. My two climb out of their cribs and I don't care! We have older cribs that have a side rail that powers. I just leave it down and let them climb in and out. Once I realized they could do it safely I didn't care anymore. They climb out yes, but it is a bit more confined than a bed. I'm leaving them like that until they literally don't fit anymore!

I think they're getting a little better! They are still a crazy handful, but they're starting to understand "no" and they are talking more so they're less frustrated.

And the other day, they started giving each other hugs so the insane cuteness of that helps deal with the toddler madness!

Isn't it amazing how incredibly special it is to raise twins. You're boys are too cute! Just wait. My boys are having full out conversations with each other now and they constantly check to make sure the other one is ok. We are all so blessed!!!!!!!!!

That's too sweet!!

Mine have started kissing each other and patting each other's backs. It's adorable. And I'm not sure if Morgan knows instinctivly that she's a minute older or if it's because she's been walking so much longer than her sister, but she has totally taken on the big sister role. When we're offering something to Reagan, she'll run up, grab it and then go back and hand it to Reagan. It's adorable. They call each other "Sis" or "Sister" and it's too cute watching them look for each other.

It's very cool watching them interact.

I can't wait till they start having conversations. I would love to know what 2 toddlers are talking about!!
