Miss Mischievous

This and the Tupperware cabinet is often where we find little Miss Caroline. She loves to pull things out of drawers/cabinets, the toy box, my purse, etc. She’s often times a little too quiet and then we find her to see that she’s made a huge mess. We found her in the laundry room the other day with a mouth full of dog food and some back up in her hand.

Birthday Nigh

Naturally, on the night of their first birthday we did a tiny little celebration with some cupcakes after dinner. The pictures really do quite simply show you each child’s personality to a tee. Caroline is slow and steady, picking off tiny little bites while pondering the flavor of the strawberry (yeah right). While Gray would have stuffed the whole cupcake in his mouth at one time if his mouth were big enough. He basically destroyed it as you can see. They enjoyed it and we loved watching it. That “celebration” resulted in baths for everyone!

 

Beau and I were thinking back to that day one year ago, trying to remember what we were doing. Oh yeah, we were feeding babies, not sleeping, changing diapers and looking for anyone to offer a suggestion as to what we should be doing. It was chaos! But what a great day!

 

We started off the day with me in front of the stove making breakfast for everyone in the house and ended the day with someone serving me a smoothie for dinner while I served dinner to two tiny little ones that were apparently starving after their tiresome journey into this world. I keep playing little pieces of that day over and over in my head praying to God that I never forget them. They’re too precious.

They're Standing!

Beau was able to capture this. They’re both standing all by themselves. Caroline had been standing by herself for at least a week at this point, but this was Gray’s first go of it and miraculously, Beau was ready with the camera!

The First of Many

Months ago, Beau researched and bought this Yuba bicycle. He drove all the way to Savannah one day to buy it from a guy who had high-school age twins. The bike wouldn’t completely fit in the 4-Runner. There it was, sticking right out the back. Naturally, Beau was excited to put the kids in it as soon as possible. But this mama was nervous.

 

As you can see, I caved and in they went. And they LOVED it! The helmets aren’t a perfect fit and Caroline clearly slouches a bit, but aren’t they adorable!?!?! We took a ride around the park a few times. Gray loved the wind in his hair.

Baked egg challenge

In case you've been in the dark, we discovered that Gray was allergic to eggs. Long story short, there were hives, crying (by me), an ER visit, an allergist busy with testing and a diagnosis of definitely allergic to eggs.

A few weeks later we're in the allergist's office eating chocolate cupcakes. As you can see, the little fella really enjoyed them. Much to the staff's surprise, Gray are two whole cupcakes...and then he passed out.

Result? The little can have food with eggs completely cooked in them. Hello Eggo waffles here we come!

January

And yes, because it's winter and finally cold out, we bundle them up well. Bundled up by love from their aunts and uncles.

9 months



Gray and Caroline are a wonderful 9 months old. They're crawling so fast, it's hard to keep up with them. They starting to make consonant sounds and they have such contagious laughs. They really enjoy Titus and his playful spirit. They are both such a joy to have with us. Most definitely, some of our favorite time is walking into the nursery in the morning to find them both standing in their cribs. They light up when they see us!
