Eleven Months!

These beauties are 11 months old!!! I can't believe it. This time last year I was about the size of a house and anxiously awaiting their arrival. What a crazy 11 months it has been!

It's been a crazy month of learning how to keep two crawling babies safely contained while allowing them to explore and practice their new skills! We are so grateful for our NorthStates Superyard! I can barricade them in wherever I need to but give them plenty of room too.

We both mastered crawling this month, are pulling up on everything, exploring all the octaves of our voices and all the cool sounds we can make and are skilled at the art of messy eating!

No new teeth this month but sleep is still tough on Mom as we both still like to nurse at least once a night. No worries though, we're growing and need our calories! They are sleeping better ever since we moved their cribs together and just this month they started waking up around the same time and playing in their cribs with each other rather than crying for us. We usually let them play for a few minutes before getting them up and they wake up so smiley!

We had a month full of family time. We celebrated Mommy's birthday out with Daddy's family and Nova and Kurt, went to the Riverfest in Troy with Aunt Lisa, Abbie and Eric, celebrated Father's Day with Daddy's family and Papa T and then celebrated Mom and Dad's anniversary with lunch out at Slidin' Dirty, the people who catered our wedding!

We're still eating a ton and trying lots of new foods. Thanks to better naps and the playyard Mommy's been able to spend some time in the kitchen cooking up some new treats for us including muffins, pancakes, veggie and cheese patties and homemade applesauce. Their favorite foods this month were blueberry pancakes, steamed broccoli and cauliflower, sweet potato fries, applesauce, raspberries and peaches.

We're both 17 lbs. and about 28 inches tall. We had our iron finger prick test and both passed with flying colors thanks to all that yummy food we're eating!

We've started planning their first birthday party and are so excited to have all of our family and closest friends over to celebrate!

I'm secretly hoping this next month drags. I want to soak every minute up and enjoy my babies as much as possible before they officially become toddlers! Don't mind me, I'm not crying, it's just raining on my face...
