My boys are one! I feel like Chase and I should of thrown ourselves a party for surviving the first year! Time really did go by so fast, when they were first born I remember thinking "this is never going to end!" but now im here and ALIVE. The boys are doing great, They are both walking now, saying mom, dad, stop, no and a bunch of jabber to each other. They have been interactively playing with each other lately. They chase each other around and yell jibber to each other. They also love to tackle, bite, push and steal from each other. I dont know when this will end but I hope soon because I can not leave the room if they are together because in two seconds someone is biting the other one. They are still taking two naps about 1 1/2 to 2 hours each and still sleeping 11-11 1/2 hours at night. They take a bottle in the morning and one at night and eat three meals a day. They are the most social little boys. They love other people and get so excited when we go out, to church, the store. They get so sad when we leave. It makes it hard at church though, they are so loud! they want to talk to everyone and walk around, basically Chase and I are in the hallways almost all of church, i cant wait for nursery :).
Porter is 30 inches and 22 pounds. He is super smart, he gets things really fast. He mimics everything you do. He makes growling sounds like Dad, he love to make you laugh so he will basically do anything you do just to see you laugh, and if you dont laugh he will keep doing it till you do. He needs to get more confidence when walking he just goes from wall to wall to keep his balance even though he can do it. He has turned into a cuddle bug and i love it! when they wake up from their naps we just sit together for 30 min just cuddling and watching little Einstein's. He knows how to throw his fits and im super sad because he taught his brother Tate on how to throw the most elaborated fit ever. They both just fall on the floor rolling around and crying and will not look at you. They will stop once the realize mom is not going to pay attention. Porter still gives his smiles away like crazy and I love his big dimples :). His favorite things are veggie sticks, baby food pouches, dry blueberries, gogurts, pushing anything he can find around the whole house, and still putting anything he can in his mouth, he thinks its a game when you say no and starts to laugh everytime you say it.
Tate is 30 inches and 22 pounds. I could not believe that they weighed the exact same because Tate looks so much bigger to me! I made the Dr. weigh him twice, but nope! they are exactly the same! He is very physical. He walks so good and he wants to run so bad he is pretty close. He is still a mommas boy and loves being held. Its kind of annoying when im trying to make lunch or dinner because he just hangs on my clothes till I pick him up, but I still love him :). He has become the little teaser though, he knows how to push Porters buttons and just laughs when Porter cries, its pretty sad :(. But he loves when Porter chases him, he always looks behind him to make sure Porter is right there. He has gotten a little more attitude lately but I was expecting it ( just look at his parernts). His favorite things are walking around the whole house multiple times a day, looking in the mirror, finding moms make up and throwing it, veggie sticks, pretzels, applejuice, chocolate ( which i rarley give him), peanut butter, dried apples, and reading.
These boys are crazy, loveable, best friends, challenging, fun and just full of life! I love them Happy one year boys!!!!
