Two Peas in a Pod

That can be a great thing, because the girls keep themselves entertained by playing with each other. It also can be a bad thing because then they are always in each other's space. Maddie has become very aware that Emma invades her space, so to solve that problem she pushes Emma out of the way. Maddie has spent numerous minutes in timeout the last week or so. Emma also is very aware how Maddie can invade her space, so she will bite Maddie. It has been a battle that is like being bipolar. For twenty minutes they can be playing so well together or at least next to each other, then in an instant it can change to them screaming at each other. I have a feeling that this is what the teenage years are going to be like. They have been sharing a room since we got back from Wisconsin the first time. Maddie is doing very well with being quiet when she goes to bed. I think that helps her to just lay there and fall asleep. In the morning it is so fun to listen to them "talk" to each other. Emma usually is the one who wakes up first, but Maddie is soon to follow. Maddie also like to jump into bed with Emma in the mornings. Usually I find them in there laughing and playing peek-a-boo. We have a feeling that there are going to be many nights where we are going to have to tell them to go to sleep and stop talking.

Here is how I found them the other morning. I don't know how long Maddie had been in there for, but they were both just content sleeping in the same crib.
