And, just like that...The babies are ONE!


Seriously, fastest year EVER.  Our sweet babies are an entire year old.  I can't even take it.

At their 1 year (not so) well check, Marlin weighed in at 21 lbs, 6 ounces and Madeline weighed in at 19 lbs 5 ounces.  Additional stats:

diaper size – 3 – 4s or 5s at night
clothes - size 12 months for Madeline, 12 – 18 for Marlin
shoes - size 3 for Madeline, 4 – 5 for Marlin
teeth – 4 on top and 2 on bottom for Mad, 2 on bottom for Marlin
sleeping – eh…we stay in the bed for about 12 hours at night…but, we certainly are still waking up – Marlin usually only once and Madeline usually twice (and the Pixie thinks she should get up at dawn and then sleep with Momma until a more reasonable wake time)…they both still nurse during one of those times because I just can’t stand to let them cry.
nursing – these kids will nurse until they go to college if we let them (especially Madeline!)…However, they are totally DIGGING almond milk right now.  Perhaps they are weaning themselves from nursing, and, that makes me a little sad.  I've been pregnant or nursing since June of 2009.  What am I going to do if this body is all mine?
eating - OH YES!  Everything.  However, we still eat a lot of baby food.  At this time with Moo, we were not eating baby food, but, they are getting to where they will eat whatever we offer them.   Baby food is just so easy...
crawling – oh yes – and pushing toys, and couch surfing, and maybe taking a step here and there (Madeline for sure has taken about 4 single steps in the past week, Marlin has taken a few consecutive steps, but, my boy is timid...)  Madeline likes to stand and do squats J
climbing - everything -  we have re-entered baby gate heaven

We had the babies first birthday party on December 1st.  It was a great time...and, I'm so thankful for my sister and mother in law for helping pull it off.  The sandwiches wouldn't have been finished and the food wouldn't have made it to the table without them!

We had a snowman/snowflake themed party...but, thankfully, the weather outside was NOT frightful!  We were blessed with a GORGEOUS day and lots of friends to celebrate these sweet angels.   Below are pictures from their special day and from a "smash cake" session with our favorite photographer Katie Daniels.  What you can't tell from the pictures too well is that Marlin wasn't a huge fan of the cake and Madeline wanted more :).  My meat and potatoes boy and sugary sweet girl.
