1st Birthday!

The boys will be 1 years old on November 2nd, but we had a Halloween party for them this weekend. The pictures are great and the boys did so good. We have the best babies!!

Nana made the cutest cakes for the boys

Grandma and Papa

Auntie Mel and the tigers

My little tigers (and my LAME costume, Ms. Smartypants)

Nana and Grandpa and Auntie Mel got us a Radio Flyer!!

Aunt Angie, Luke and Uncle John aka Tiffany (he always has the best costumes)

not so sure..

Carter was a little slow digging in.

Luke loved the cake!

Last year around this time, I was in the hospital on bed rest after Carter's sac ruptured. I cannot believe it has been a whole year already. What a great party and a wonderful first year.

We thought our hands were full then..

but now we're really keeping busy. Between preparing "real food" lunches (toast, fajita chicken, turkey sticks, sweet potatoes, grapes, yogurt, appleauce, avocado and maybe a few more) and chasing Carter around we really have to stay on our toes.

Carter has crawling down like he's done it for months and he's now pulling up on everything! He stands at the back door, at the couch to mess with the cat, grabs things off of the coffee table and now he just recently started pulling up to stand in front of the TV. He's getting so strong and could be walking really soon. He's also babbling a lot more consonants now which is so stinkin cute. He currently weighs 22 lbs and has three teeth coming in.

Luke is doing great. He's still needing breathing treatments everyday but they seem to help his wheezing. His personality is so fun. He smiles at everything and giggles at any noise he hears. He is still scooting backwards but he's been doing all the same things Carter did right before he began crawling. He continues to be so cuddly and loves to be held and read to. Luke weighs 23 lbs but he feels like 30! He is a chunk! He has four teeth popping in which are very visible and sharp. For once, he's ahead of Carter on the teething chart.

The boys will be 1 years old on November 2nd so we're going to have a "family" party.  They may not be walking or talking at 1 years old, but they definitely could use haircuts!

The boys are doing much better this week. Last week we still had some icky coughs and enormous blowouts but this week we're all smiles.

The boys are now enjoying some real table food. They love toast with butter, deli meat, strawberry apple sauce and of course bananas. Every couple days, we introduce something new and they haven't really turned much down yet. However, they are not as interested in the baby food anymore. They love to feed themselves now, even though half of what they pick up lands on their lap.

Carter is crawling all over the house. He loves to be by us in the kitchen and play with tupperware.

Luke (our little cuddle-bug) is still scooting backwards. He scoots until he runs into something and then will whimper until we relocate him to another area. Quite entertaining! Luke still L O V E S to matter what is going on or no matter how loud Carter talks, Luke loves to snuggle right into anyone who holds him. We are soaking up every minute of it!

The boys will be 1 years old in less than a month and I still have yet to order their birthday invitations. I guess it's a good thing we aren't 'goin all out' with a huge party this year. Where does the time go? I should've been on this months ago.
