13 Months~~ OH MY!

The twins rounded the 13 month mark this past weekend and I would be remiss if I didn’t share their latest milestones:

Joshua is a full-time walker now.  About a week after Ben returned from his trip, we came home to find him walking everywhere.  Occasionally he gets so excited he runs faster then he means to across the room and wipes out, but it doesn’t keep him down.  He just bounces back up and keeps going.  It is so much fun to watch him shake his little bottom while he carries large toys across the room.  He fought a cold gallantly this month, and while it held on in Savannah for almost 2 weeks, he spiked a 2 hour fever and then had a runny nose for about two days before being back to his old self again.

Savannah is still crawling around the house at top speed.  She is very capable of walking, but has no desire to.  She moves all the furniture around and her latest game is to push her rocking chair up to the coffee table and climb onto it.  Tooth #7 broke through in the midst of the beginning of her long cold a few weeks ago and she took it without any complaining.  Tooth #8 seems to be getting ready to make it’s appearance and we are happily waiting for it’s arrival.

Both of them still have the best attitudes and are such a joy to be around.  They continue to sleep 12-13 hours at night and take 2 almost 2 hour naps during the day.  I love listening to them chatter away at each other in their cribs at night and when they wake up from naps.  They stand up and face each other, sometimes silently and then you hear laughs as they play.  There is nothing more rewarding at the end of a day then to see their precious faces.  Especially when our days have been full of appointments and trips away.  This past week I spent 48 hours away from them and missed them so much… it just became a reminder to me of how blessed I am to be able to be a stay at home mom and share all their precious moments!  🙂 I  know… sappy me!  But I sure do love them! 

Spread the love
