Happy 11 Month Birthday, Babies!!

Reid & Louisa are alway so sleepy and sweet first thing in the morning! I love that morning "Mommy Sugar!"

Reid loves Louisa's bows...just not in her hair!
So sweet together!

I'm really hoping that the reason I couldn't get very many good pictures tonight is because the babies weren't feeling very well...especially Louisa. I'm afraid the real reason is that our babies are on the move and they don't exactly like to sit still! We'll try to get some more pictures this weekend and hopefully Louisa's cold will go away quickly.
1 more month until Reid & Louisa's big birthday!! Wow. That seems CRAZY!! This year has flown by, but it's been a blast!

New Stuff and New Pics

Change, change, much change going on! Here are a few of the new things Reid & Louisa are doing:
  • Reid has a new "Monster" voice
  • Louisa can now wave and clap
  • We need a translator if anyone speaks "Twin-ese!" Reid and Louisa have become much more vocal with each other, often going back and forth. The other night they were in their high chairs and the conversation went like this:

R: "Ma-ma" L: "Da-da" R: "Ma-ma" L: "Da-da"

They went on like this for quite some time. Too cute!

  • Reid & Louisa also love to "get" each other. This can be just catching the other one's eye, smiling, patting on the other one, or pulling the other one's all fun to them! It is so precious to hear them squeal with excitement just to be around each other.
  • Time to move the crib mattresses down! It's pretty normal now to go into R&L's room and find them standing in their cribs...usually at the ends that face each other :) They always have to know where the other one is!
  • After almost 11 months you would think Mommy could change a diaper without letting her little guy sprinkle all over, right?!? Apparently not!! Yes, Reid went all over himself and the mantle the other night. I was in such shock because it hadn't happened in so long that I just stood there forgetting to cover "it" up. Ooops!

On the move!!

Seriously, time is flying and my babies are growing up before my very eyes! 2 weeks ago Reid cut his top 2 teeth and has another top tooth almost through, last week Louisa cut 1 (the other is coming). 2 weeks ago Louisa started crawling, last week, Reid decided to join her. Over the last few days, both babies have started pulling up on EVERYTHING…the couch, their toys, the toy basket, each other (this one doesn’t usually yield the end result they were going for and somebody usually gets hurt!)

So, last night we got out the video camera because Reid and Louisa were being so cute playing together and standing up to their toy when Louisa just decided to let go and stand completely on her own for a good 15-20 seconds!! We couldn’t believe it. If that wasn’t enough for one night, a few minutes later she turned from the toy she was playing with, let go with one hand so she could reach the couch, then proceeded to “cruise” all the way down the couch!! And let me say that she was quite pleased with herself the whole way! It appears as though our babies are not going to be happy sitting on their bottoms from here on out because last night and today they have only been happy when standing. My first thought is, “My babies are growing up so fast!! Can they really be almost a year old?!?” My second thought is “How am I going to get a good picture of them now?!? They are never going to sit or stand still now!!”

As hard as I am trying to hold on to my babies and keep them that way, I am failing miserably!! So, I guess I just need to sit back and watch and enjoy them growing up…even if it is all happening WAY TOO FAST!! With each new little thing that they are doing, I am counting our blessings. We are so incredibly blessed with two healthy, happy babies. My heart is so full with all of the joy that Reid and Louisa bring daily!

By the way, October officially marks the 1 year anniversary of when I started the blog. Take a look back at how different things were a year ago! October 2007 By the way, we were TOTALLY wrong about who we thought Reid & Louisa would look like!
