The boys are getting so big... so fast!

On one hand it doesn't seem like it has been over a year since the boys were born... but at the same time (at times) it seems like time has stood still. I do not miss the Q2 hour feedings for the first 2-3 months. But I do miss them being small enough to hold like babies.

Carter and Cooper are now a little over 13 months old and are doing wonderful! They have been walking for almost 2 months, they can say "duh" for "dog." They can understand what you say and comply with requests (sometimes). Used to when I would get up in the mornings and come around the corner they would run to me saying "da-da" but now they run to me saying "duh." They know our dog sleeps in the back of the house and that when I come to the front, so does he. They want to see him now more than they want to see me. That's ok. I think its great that they are trying to get me to act proud of them by showing me they know what a dog is.

Oh to be a child again...

Folks, I know it can be hard being a parent, especially of twins or more, but if you'll just sit back for a second and try your best to put yourself into a toddler's shoes and think about the fact that they do not know hardly anything about the world and that they are pure hearted...you'll quickly be humbled by the gifts you've been given and chances are you will understand them better. Get down on their level. Play. Laugh. Love like there's no tomorrow. You never know... there just may not be one.

Hi there, I wrote to you on Facebook but I'm not sure if you'll see it, so I figured I'll try here as well.

I just want to let you know that someone has taken one of your babies' pictures and claimed it is her child.

I don't know what the purpose of this may be, but maybe to ask for money to help her pay 'her child's' medical expenses.

I'm a mom too and if it were my child I would want to know. I'm so sorry and hope this gets resolved for you soon.
