At this time last year, the babies all fit side by side in one crib together. I stood on a chair and belted out the ABC’s, in an attempt to get them to look in my direction. This was too early to hope for smiles, and it took quite a few rounds of the ABC’s before they all looked. Tough crowd… Finding me to be amusing would come later.

By April, they were too big to do a group shot lying in the same crib. In the next shots, they were posed on the couch at a family birthday party facing a large group of adults engaged in animated antics trying to get the babies to smile. We should have had a video camera pointed in that direction… Adults do the funniest things around babies.
