I will be minding my own business, reading a book or looking at pretty things on the internet, when all of the sudden one (or both?) of the babies starts moving around and crying. I can definitely hear that at least one is moving and fussing but by the time I get to the pack-n-play and look over the edge to calm said baby down, they are both frozen! No signs of fussiness.
So then I sit by the pack-n-play until I am confident that the fussiness is over but as soon as I resume my activities it will begin again.
How do they know?
P.S. Annelise really loves to snuggle Olivia and occasionally things like this happen:
Yes, Annelise is sucking on Olivia's pinky. The best part? Olivia doesn't mind at all.
P.P.S. The only way I can tell them apart (if they are not right next to each other) is by their right ears. And we put nail polish on each of their big toes so that if we forget which outfit/blanket they are wearing we will still know who is who. I thought I would be able to tell them apart without looking at their right ears or their toes, but my mom got them dressed yesterday and then brought one baby in to me to see if I could tell who she was and I failed. But I knew I had failed as soon as I looked at her right ear. So as long as they both don't go all "Van Gogh" on me I should be fine.
See how Olivia's ear has a little kink in the top? That difference is my saving grace.
