Way Back When-esday: Cuties Contained!

Dateline: Late Summer 2002
Twins' Age: About 10 months

How Darren and Sarah LOVED their playpen! (Which for the first year+ of our babies' lives was the centerpiece of our living room.) When guests came to visit, and they wanted to read to them, this was often the audience that greeted them...leanin' and listenin'. Do note the little orange-tinged noses. Sweet potato loving babies tend to retain the veggies' pigment under the skin-- so verified our pediatrician. Go figure!

Play along with Way Back When-esday! Post and pic, tell the tale, link back here, and participate in the web-wide reverie. Looking forward to seeing your shots!

Oh Cheryl that photo is too cute!! My kids had the orange faces too... They look like they really were anxious on their visitors :)

Brandi said...

Heehee! How cute they are! So miss the days before they could climb out of the pen!

They are as cute now as they were way back then!! I did not know that about the veggies- I was always trying to get the "yellow" off my kids but to no avail. Of course I would just about give anything for my kids to eat enough veggies to turn that same "yellow". Though I have resigned myself to being the grilled cheese cook for the next umpteen years.

I love the orange noses too! My kids sported those through their baby food days too!!! We had a play pen like that for Dallas when he was young. But it was from ME when I was a baby, so it didn't last too long! But I LOVED how much room it had!

Wonderfully happy to pass on that the orange nose is pediatrician verified- My husband keeps thinking Luke has a rash!He will believe a doctor, but not me. ;-)
