Last weekend Jo and Pete packed up the twins and took the show on the road… to our house. These little New Yorkers enjoyed the green grass and the super warm temps while splashing around in the kiddie pool in our backyard. Another thing they don’t have in their Upper West Side apartment? Stairs. Emily and Michael turned one in May and recently started walking. They did a lot of exploring in our house and upon discovering our staircase, they headed up to the second floor more times than any of us care to remember. I’m sure Jo is really glad their apartment doesn have a single step! Emily is a lot more smiley these days. During all of our other visits she used to stare me down with a really intense look, but now she is seeming more lighthearted and fun-loving like her brother.
