11 Months

Another month has flown by and now in only one more month the twins are going to be 1! People always say kids grow up too fast and now that I am a mom I realize how true it is. The past 11 months have been WILD and CRAZY but I would not change it for the world! Below are the updates that have happened over the last month! We now are no longer eating baby food and are all on real food for the most part. Also, yesterday we started mixing bottles half whole milk and half formula!! Over the weekend we are going to attempt to begin weaning off bottles to more cups so we will see how that goes :) Below are updates...

This year I couldn't wait until fair time b/c if you keep up with the blog you know that last year during the fair I was on strict bed rest at home. I was excited because I got to go but more so because it was Paityn and Conner's first Washington County Fair! We went several days to the fair with the babies and they loved it. We walked through and saw most of the animals during the day and went to the rodeo Friday night. Paityn and Conner watched in ahhh at everything that was going on.
More interested in the strap than the heifers LOL

Daddy & Conner...not sure what that face was about...

Toys..Not Interested!

"No No!" seems to be said in our household a lot more now than it ever has been said before. Paityn and Conner and everywhere and are getting into EVERYTHING! Both are pulling up and standing all the time. Conner pulls up and stands...and even walks along everything!! Paityn pulls up and stands on the bathtub and attempts to on the couch, chairs, and your legs but she is a little more wobbly than Conner is. I guess its b/c of her extra weight LOL Also, Paityn and Conner no longer really have an interest in their toys but have definitely taken an interest in the dogs toys, dogs food bowls, dogs water, mini-blinds, door stoppers, our computers, and pretty much anything they are not suppose to. When they set their eyes on something it is a race to get their between the two :) Also, we have now began to enter the jealousy stage between them. If Matt or I are sitting on the floor, one will come and crawl onto our lap...then the other sees and wants you to hold them too. Then you see pushing, shoving, attempted biting, pulling hair, fussing, etc... They are only 10 1/2 months and are fighting...I can't wait to see what it is like when Paityn and Conner are 2!!

10 Months

Wow...I am behind on the post since school has started. On August 28th the twins turned 10 months old. In the last month so much has changed for Paityn and Conner and they have made tremendous growth in only 1 month. Since 9 months until now the twins have become expert crawlers, are pulling up to their knees, have begun drinking from straws, are eating more "real" food, and so much more :) Also, a few days after the twins turned 10 months, Paityn became a Doc Band graduate!!! The before and after changes for her are huge and we are so happy that we decided to get her a Doc Band.
