Status update

Been a while, but the boys have been growing up steadily. Primary activities haven’t changed much though: Sleeping, eating and the occasional tumbling around. By now we’ve grown accustomed to being used as heated mattresses during the night, as well as the fact that entering the kitchen will be greeted by a combined chorus of […]

Being scared is for pussies…
