Both babies are doing great. They are doing typical baby-like things including babbling, constant smiling, trying ever so hard to roll over and occasionally succeeding, and putting everything in their mouths to name a few.

They are wrapping up their second week of day care and so far we are no worse for the wear except for their first colds. I figured it would take all of a week before they were sick. I was about right. It seems that this cold has started to invade my nose as well. As an admitted germaphobe, this constant sickness thing is going to wear on me, but what can you do?
I mentioned in a previous post that baby boy had been getting some physical therapy for torticollis. The reason we got evaluated in the first place for torticollis was because of suspected plagiocephaly. (Don't you love these big words?) Both babies have mild cases of plagiocephaly and have started helmet therapy. And while it's slightly disheartening to know my little babies will be helmeted for the next 4 or so months, I know that they will never know the difference and they will have nicely shaped heads in the end. Plagiocephaly is more common in twins because they get rather squished in the womb, and then it affects their little noggins.

Once again, I have nothing eventful to report on the workout front. With our daycare/nanny debacle and working more than I care to, there hasn't been a lot of extra time. My latest idea is to start running over the lunch hour. I refrain from calling it a lunch break, because in my 7+ years as a professional, I haven't worked at a place that forces you to take an hour break, so I don't. If this plan actually comes to fruition, I will let you know how it goes. In theory, I would run twice a week at lunch - 30 minutes max - and then one or two more times on the weekend.
And as I'm sure you can imagine, the Autumn Beer Review was a smashing success. I think we both got a little too excited with all the choices. I had a ton of great beers. So many that I got a little hopped-out after a while. The palette can only handle so much hops! A few that stick out in my mind are Fat Tire's Tart Lychee, mostly because it was so unique, and Boulder Beer's Mojo Nitro. It's their Mojo beer on a nitro tap. (Think Boddingtons or Guinness cans.) We also had a few local brews that I enjoyed including Steel Toe's Size 7 and Lucid Brewing's Foto.
That's all I got for now. Life is all work and babies!
