We're 11 Months Old!


Ack!!! How is this possible? We are just one month away from the big 1! Life with Grayson and Weston just keeps getting better. They are busy little guys with big personalities! Gray and West are typically pretty happy guys - unless they are hungry. It's fun watching them together. It's like they finally see the other one as a playmate and not just "that other guy that Mommy plays with."

The boys are becoming chattier and experimenting more with their voices. Grayson prefers the all-out shriek and doesn't believe in an inside voice. Weston is more of the quiet babbler. They are both quick to laugh and each have such a unique giggle - I love it.


As far as eating, the boys eat three meals a day with one afternoon snack. And they eat A LOT. I cannot keep up with them! So far there hasn't been too much that they have turned down. We've made the switch to sippy cups 100% of the time. Yay for no more bottles!

The boys wear 12 month clothes although some of the pants are a little on the long side. I'm praying that they hit some leg growth spurts and that they didn't inherit my stumpy legs. We moved them up to size 4 diapers (on a side note, that's the size Austin and Addie can wear!)

For naps, Grayson and Weston take two good naps a day. At night, they sleep from 7:15ish to 7:00.




Grayson - you are a walking fool! It is your preferred method of getting around and you are definitely getting better. Recently you have been trying to "run" which usually results in a face plant but I love that you get right back up and try again! You typically have a mischievous glint in your eye and have been known to push toys around so you can climb up on the couch, the entertainment center and the toy chest. When I catch you, you shriek with laughter and try to get away.  


You just had a new tooth come in so you are up to 7. You are a big fan of flashing those teeth when you smile.

I love watching you with Austin and Addison. You want to be where they are and doing what they are doing. You aren't quite big enough to keep up but they are pretty good about including you.

Grayson, your smile warms my heart and your laughter brings me so much happiness. Please don't ever lose this fiesty spirit of yours. It is what makes you you!



Weston, you have made some big developmental strides this past month. You are crawling on your hands and knees for the most part, although you'll army crawl when you get tired. And today you started cruising! Something tells me that in the next couple of months, you'll be walking with the rest of the Rosie pack.

You are still my sweet little guy that likes sit back and watch your siblings run around. Although as you have become more mobile, you're starting to get into the action!

You have been working on your 8th tooth for a while and it's been a bear coming in. But it's in!


Weston, you are my gentle soul, my sweet snuggler. I love watching you take in the world with those big green eyes. 


Grayson and Weston - it is with a mixture sadness and happiness that we go into this next month. I'm getting a little nostalgic because in another month, I won't have babies anymore - you'll be 1 year olds!! I am happy because I am so excited to see what God has in store for you. We love you both so much!
