When Ethan Finds Jane

First off, I have to report that the flight was totally successful and the babies did great!  The flight attendants were even complimenting us saying they didn't hear them cry once.  Ethan cried a little during take off and Jane cried when the captain came over the intercom and woke her up.

I was lucky enough to sit next to some teenage girls that oooed and awwed over both babies the whole time and even held Ethan for a bit to give my arms a break.  The guy next to Dave had kids of his own and helped out as well.  Dave and I had to sit on separate rows because apparently there is only 1 extra oxygen mask per row so 2 babies can't be in the same row.

So we are here and Utah is beautiful and humidity-free!  It has been so nice to be with family and to see Jane and Ethan interact with them.

I have been waiting to share this video of Ethan and Jane.  This is the moment that Ethan realizes Jane is right next to him and that she's his sister.  It's pretty cute to watch how fixed he is on her and how happy he is to see her!  Most people think that twin infants interact a lot when they are little (I thought that when I was pregnant) but they really don't.  For the most part they ignore each other (sometimes even going out of their way to ignore each other).  So this makes me really happy:

SO Glad the flight went so well. While I'm hoping you have a blast in UT, which is inevitable I'm sure, I miss you already.

So hurry home.

And this video is the cutest thing EVER! Their rolls alone are fabulous, but Ethan's smiles to Jane and his dimple, and her hand in his face, I just love it all. It makes me want twins - after they're like 4 or something and can mostly manage for themselves ;)

Jessica! This video was adorable! I love how Jane always has to have her arms/hands in Ethan's face. He's such a good sport. It was so sweet seeing him smile at her. They are going to be great friends. Thanks for posting! And bring back those babies!!

I'm a teensy bit obsessed with them. I LOVE his big smile over her. And all those rolls in one crib...so cute! That's a priceless video. Love them! Have fun in Utah-so glad the flight went well!

His dimples are to die for. Have fun with all the Shums. I know Grandpa and Grandma are so excited to see them.

Oh, and I have always had great experiences flying with babies. There are always people willing to help. It reminds me how many good people are out there.

They are absolutely adorable, Jessica. This video is a treasure. Sibling love is so special, but it's even cuter when it involves 2 babies instead of just one!!

Cutest thing ever!!! I love Ethan's dimple and how he kept on talking to Jane to get her attention. Such sweet babies. Can't wait to see them here in Oklahoma!!

Oh my goodness! That is about the sweetest thing I've ever seen! Seriously. He didn't even care that her arm is right in his face. I miss those babies! Have fun in OK and we'll see you in about a week!!
