Harper is taking steps. I wouldn't say she's walking just yet. We still have to bribe her and she won't take more than 4 or 5 steps, but it's unassisted steps nonetheless. Owen has no interest in this.
They are both talking up a storm. Harper's favorite word (and maybe her favorite person) is dada. Owen's favorite word right now is "uh-oh"! EVERYTHING is uh-oh! Other words include dog, ball, and of course momma and dada.
We FINALLY have teeth! Owen got his 2 bottom teeth about a month ago - but that child has had symptoms of teething for months! He now has 4 total - 2 bottom and 2 top. Little Miss Harper's two bottom teeth finally decided to make their appearance just as she turned one.
At their 12 month checkup we were surprised to learn that Owen only weighs a pound more than his sister - who is literally a feather-weight.
Harper - tiny thing only weighs 16 lbs. 2 oz and is almost 29" long.
Owen - 17 lbs. 8 oz and 29" long
We celebrated the kids first birthday with a sock monkey party. The kids made out like bandits!
Amycakes made the most amazing sock monkey birthday cake as well as the kids personalized smash cakes - which they inhaled!
Family and several close friends came to celebrate with us and the kids. With lots of food, drinks, gifts and cake - the party was a success! Oh - and the kids had fun too:) I think...
