We're 10 Months Old!

 
At this age, this is about as good as it gets for a sock monkey pictures. I took about 30 pictures, with this being the best. The other ones have someone on the move, both on the move or the camera being attacked by 2 little boys on the move (notice the theme here?).  They are busy! It's fun to watch them explore and "play" together.
 

Weston and Grayson are still really really really good eaters. We're down to 3 bottles a day and then they eat breakfast, lunch and dinner. They have tried a lot of veggies, fruits and meats and so far there doesn't seem to be anything that they have turned down. Cheerios are still a fan favorite as well as anything in the fruit department. We're still working on sippy cups but there are some days that the cups are more instruments to bang on trays than actual drinking devices.


Sleep is also still a successful area for these guys. We put them down between 7:00 - 7:15 each night and they sleep until about 7:00 or so. During the day, they take solid morning and afternoon naps. I feel like we have a really good routine going between playtime and me working.


Most of their clothes are 9-12 month things. They are still in size 3 diapers but getting ready to make the jump to size 4. Some days I have a hard time with them getting so big! Where did my sweet little newborns go???

 
Grayson, if there was one word to describe you this month, it's climber. You have figured out how to push your dino around and use it as a stepstool to get to where you want to go. Unfortunately, you also like to use your brother's head/back - without permission. This means that my laptop is no longer safe on the couch!
 

You recently have started standing up without having to hold onto anything else. You've also started taking steps. I bet in the next month or so, you'll be walking! I have tried about 1000 times to get a video of you taking a stroll but it's about impossible by myself.


Grayson, you are sweet and funny and so perfect. You are independent but still a great snuggler. You like to say something that is pretty close to "my mama." And I'm so proud to be your mama!



Weston, you are making huge strides in the movement department. This month you are solidly army crawling and sometimes get up on your hands and knees. Just within the past couple of days, you've started getting into a sitting position on your own and if we get you up, you'll stand. Yay for you! I bet you'll catch up to your brother in no time!


You are generally a pretty happy kid although you've got a pesky tooth coming in that's causing some pain. You are content to sit back and watch your siblings be crazy people - all with a huge smile on your face! You take in the world with those big green (heck yeah they are green!) eyes.


Weston - you are so snuggly, lovable and 100% adorable. I love how expressive you are (like Blue Steel above) and your shy laugh. I'm so blessed you are mine!

Grayson and Weston - we love all of the things you bring to our family - we aren't complete without you!
