At one year Carson and Avery:
-are walking everywhere. They now prefer walking to crawling.
-have started to climb more. Carson can climb onto the ottoman and the couch if there is anything on the floor to stand on. Which scares his mommy.
-are drinking whole milk, which they love. But still using the bottle. They still aren't that great at the sippy cup, so I give them a couple of bottles a day. We're working on weaning though.
-are both really attached to their blankets. Avery's is her silk lovey and Carson's is his green knit blanket. They want to carry them everywhere.
-are saying more words and sounds. Avery says, "uh, uh, uh" (which means uh-oh) anytime she drops something or falls. She can tell you what a duck and a monkey say. Carson can tell you what a lion says. They both say puppy, mama, dada, mimi, papa, baba. And they're trying to imitate noises and facial expressions more now. Avery was trying to blow her nose on her hand after watching my dad blow his nose.
-are still really good eaters. They will eat anything really.
-and they of course are still the sweetest, busiest, cutest babies I know!!

Well tomorrow is the big day. The first birthday.
And honestly, I'm sad.
I know that I am so incredibly blessed to have two happy healthy babies, but I can't help but feel a little sad about their first year being over.
It is so hard for me to believe that one year ago I was sitting around waiting to meet my two sweet babies. It feels like we've always had them, and it's only been a year.
Anyway, I am sad about my babies growing up too fast, but I am so excited about celebrating their first birthday tomorrow.

We've had a fun week so far! This past weekend we went to Oklahoma to move into our cabin that is finally finished. We started building this cabin last spring and we are so excited for it to be done. My family has been going to Broken Bow, OK for many, many years so we are excited about being able to take our kids there as they grow up. We are planning on renting the cabin out when we aren't using it so we have a lot of stuff to do up there. But we were able to at least get started.

Carson was such a big helper. Though he didn't like it when mommy climbed up on top of the ladder. He cried the whole time I was up there. I think he's going to be a worrier. He takes after me I guess.
Helping unload some boxes.
I couln't resist putting on the camo and overalls. I think I heard a banjo start playing as I was sanpping his overalls on.....haha!!

Carson loves his Papa!
Avery's first ponytail.
The babies loved playing outside on the patio.

We woke up Sunday morning to some beautiful fall weather. It's so nice to be able to play outside any time of the day. I love the fall!!
Love these sweet babies!! They are so much fun!
