“One more cuddle, one more!”

And–oh–Ari grabbing Evie’s toes (their suppleness pictured below) and squealing “wee, wee, wee all the way home”–I am hopelessly wrapped around their fingers…toes (really any digit would serve).

IMG_7850 IMG_7853By the way, we fly overseas with the girls in just a little over a week!!  We got great suggestions from friends about some helpful apps because, after this catastrophic flight, we’re not really expecting either one of them to sleep.  But I think I’d also like to get my hands on a couple new paperback books.  I’m tempted by this one, by the same author as Rosie Revere, Engineer, a big favorite in our household.  Also consulting this list.  Any recommendations/suggestions/advice?

I thought this idea for flights with small kids to be pretty endearing, but I don’t think I have it in me this week.  After I finish the paper I’m currently working on, I’ll only have about 45 pages left to write between me and graduation, so I’m trying to make a final push before we fly.  My apologies to the fellow flyers who are less than charmed by my very vocal progeny.
