1 Year Old!

The babies are 1 year old! How did we survive this whole first year with twins? 1 word – teamwork. Matthew & Claire are doing so much more now than they did at 9 months. They’re both trying to take steps on their own, feeding themselves more, talking a lot more and playing games like peek-a-boo and pat-a-cake on their own.

Matthew is really becoming more of a ham; he knows when he gets a reaction out of someone and laughs hysterically if you repeat what he’s doing. We’re trying to get into eating more “adult food”, Matthew is very cautious about trying new things but he does have a few favorites. He loves cut up pieces of cheese, yogurt, tomatoes and grapes. He now has 4 bottom teeth, 4 top teeth and 4 molars. He did pretty well with cutting his molars, I think they only really bothered him for a day or so.

Claire loves to play peek-a-boo, anytime you say “peek” she immediately covers her hands with her eyes or her favorite blanket. She really laughs when you play back with her and the other day we found her trying to play “peek” with the dog. I’m sure he loved that… Claire will try pretty much any foods and seems to like almost anything we give her. She is trying really hard to use a sippy cup and getting pretty good at it. She now has 4 bottom teeth and 4 top teeth.

We’ll have to wait until their 1 year check-up at the end of the month to see how tall they are and what they weigh.

We're a little sleepy in this photos, we just had a bath and are ready for bed!

Matthew made himself a little outfit by unrolling the toilet paper and wrapping himself in it.  I walked away to do a load of laundry and came back to find him like this!

Claire loves her stuffed animal bee from Aunt Cheryl & Uncle Tom!
