12 Months Too Old

Birthday party has come and gone. All the cake has been eaten. Thanks to this mommy. And I wonder why I am nowhere near pre-pregnancy weight a year later. Neither here nor there :)

My babies are no more. I am now the mother of two toddlers. Excuse me? I am having a hard time believing it, but that's what my weekly emails keep calling them... Ay yi yi!

Though we aren't walking yet, we are all over the place! Sitting still is something we no longer no how to do. This makes posing-for-pictures mommy crazy! Our 12 month pictures were almost non-existent due to falls off of the fireplace, ripping of the sticker, eating of the sticker, and a meltdown when Mommy tried to take ripped, half-eaten sticker away from us. What a mean mommy....


{more concerned with what brother is doing}

{one sticker down, one to go}


{i spy a sticker. behind the right foot. not on our shirt.}


{could absolutely not get him to look at the camera this time around}

Our stats from our 12 month check up:

     Height - 28.75 inches
     Weight - 18 pounds 10 ounces
     Head Circumference - 17.75''

Mattie Rose:
     Height - 28 inches
     Weight - 17 pounds 6 ounces
     Head Circumference - 17.5''

We are still little bits, but growing just as healthy as ever! 

Both James and Mattie Rose pull to stand, cruise, and push their walkers. But no one is quite ready to brave it on their own. James has six teeth, two on bottom and four up top. Mattie Rose still only has her two on the bottom. James is now wearing 12-18 month clothes and my dainty little girl is still in 9 months, though some 12 month outfits don't swallow her too much. 

We still love to eat any and everything. But now we like to hold big pieces of food and take bites! We love to dance to any type of music, particularly Lecrae and Bruno Mars. Ha!

Our favorite times of the day are meal time, any time outside, when Daddy gets home from work, and bath time!

We are finally off of formula (cha-ching!) and doing a great job with whole milk and our sippy cups! This makes mommy super happy! No more making bottles and more importantly, no more WASHING bottles!

Monthly posts will be likely turn into 6 month posts to let you know all about our growing! So keep following!
