Thanks! That sounds about right, they do keep each other entertained and they like to wonder and play... Me and my husband sing and read to them alot when they want our attention :)

It's difficult to say. Each family is different. It's hard to know how much focused attention your children need.

What I can tell you is that it's hugely valuable for kids to have freedom with the security of knowing a trusted adult is nearby. Even if you aren't directly playing with your twins if you are close and they know that they can get your attention IF they need it that counts for a lot.

Definitely though, be certain that your children are exposed to lots of language. Sometime twins are very good at keeping each other entertained and keeping each other company. and you want to make certain that when you are interacting with them your are talking, singing, reading and they are hearing lots of language.
