    I had my babes for about 2 days. Olive had been the squirmy one from day one. Now he is a big lubba lubba and easily de-squirmed, but I digress. My dad was cleaning out the bin and I was holding them both. Olive jumped from me and landed on the floor. Holding Muddy, I bent to pick up Olive and Muddy climbed up my arm and perched on my head. And thus you have a 38 yo woman yelling "Dad! Duck on my head, duck on my head!" haha!

    Actually, Muddy will sit on my forearm or shoulder and fly into the pool from a good 5 feet. He even comes in for a beautiful landing. Olive, Mr Squirm-worm, flies like a brick.

    Quote:Strangely, Olive has great balance. We do a trick where he balances his feet on each hand and I lift him over my head. I bet Peepers could! Try it over water! [​IMG]

    Quote:Muddy was like that! And then he took out my cornea. I was the laughing stock of the ER.
