11 months

Well, this is it. Our last "month" birthday before the big O-N-E.
Carson and Avery turned 11 months on Sunday.
This is the best I could do for the 11 month picture.
We will try again when daddy gets home.
Having twins is great!! There are so many clever little shirts for twins.
Avery loves to give her bubba kisses.
Mommy's little helpers.
At 11 months Carson and Avery are:
-into everything. That about sums it up!Carson:
My little wild man has been very into pushing his toy house over. He still hasn't learned that it hurts when you fall over with it or when it comes crashing back down on your toes. This toy house is probably his favorite toy. He loves to open and close the window and mailbox and push all the buttons that play music. He's also learned how to throw his toys, which he thinks is pretty hilarious. Carson has started to clap his hands when we sing the "clap your hands" song to him or play patta-cake. He's still really into waving hi and bye bye too. He loves to wave at people. He is walking really well now. Still a little unsteady, but he's getting a lot more confidence. He says mama and dada (Sometimes it seems like it's directed towards us and sometimes it just seems like he's babbling. It's hard to tell). We went to a splash park last weekend with Grand-D. Carson couldn't get enough of it. He really loves to splash in the water. During his bath I have to hold up a towel to keep all the water he is splashing from getting all over the bathroom floor. He gets a little crazy. Carson is such a happy boy! I love watching him explore and play and grow. Happy 11 month birthday my sweet, sweet boy!
Avery: Avery's little personality has really blossomed this past month. She has become such a little talker. She says puppy, bubby (Carson), dada, bye bye, and ba ba (bottle). She loves to wave and say bye bye. Especially when Shane is leaving for work. She claps her hands all the time now. On command and just when she's playing. And she's really into making the "Indian noise," and loves to blow "raspberries" on our arms and legs. Avery has become very affectionate. She loves to give kisses and cuddle with me in the rocking chair. She's also been really into carrrying around her little silk lovey. It usually just stays in her crib, but lately when I go to get her up from nap she has her lovey and her two paci's all packed up and ready to bring downstairs with her (she has to sleep with two paci's now, one in her mouth and one to hold). Avery loves to feed the dogs from her highchair, and she thinks it's so funny to take her paci out of her mouth and put it in mine. She is walking a lot more and getting more and more steady on her feet. Her latest favorite thing to do is open and close the lid on her lotion bottle. She opens it with her teeth and closes it with her hand. After her bath she will sit and do this over and over until I get nervous about her eating lotion and breaking her teeth and take the bottle away from her. Here she is holding her new favorite toy and wearing her ski hat we found when we were playing in the drawers.
Happy 11 month birthday my beautiful, sweet girl!

Some Videos...Finally!!

I finally got video of both babies walking.

Avery just learned how to clap her hands together, and boy does she love to show off her new trick!! She has also started making the "indian noise," you know the sound you make when you pat your hand on your mouth. I don't know what it's really called. Anyway, here's a video of Avery's new tricks as well as Carson waving bye-bye. He's been really into waving lately.
(Please excuse The Office playing in the back ground)

Bathtime Fun

We moved bathtime from the kitchen sink to the big bathtub last week.
And they love it!
They play and splash and climb all over each other.
Carson has already climbed out of the tub twice.
They sure do love the water!!

Say It Isn't So

Both my babies have started "walking." And I say "walking," because their preferred way of getting around is still crawling, but they can both take some really steady steps now.
Avery took her official first steps last Thursday August 5th.
She is taking about 4-5 steps now without falling or losing her balance.
I really need to get some video of it, but here's some pictures of her making her way over to the ottoman.

Yay for Avery!!
And here is a couple of pictures of Carson from this week
He has started scrunching up his nose and making snorting sounds.
It's so cute!!
Sweet boy!!
