A random 1 year post

Jack and Braley are 1 today. What a blessed day, indeed. Not to mention, I caught every green light on my way home from taking Paige to school.

My big one year old boys, in new jammies from Aunt Brookie:

And a lil' preview of big man in his birthday hat ; )

We celebrated birthday-eve with a trip to Target. So we didn't have to buy diapers and are 100% off formula, yet I still spend $125 + at the grocery. Dang natural/organic foods!

We also got a little crazy yesterday - the fridge repair man was here (and is still not fixed. FML.) so we brought the highchairs in the twins room and ate in there.

I am also on a weightloss kick. Yay me!

And I had to snap one last photo of BABIES! : (

Jack at 1 year:
Diaper = size 4 clothes = 12-18 months
Favorite foods = cheese, yogurt, bananas, cheerios, sweet peas, chicken, grapes, blueberries, banana puffs, goldfish, loves milk and water
*biggest mommas boy. He follows me around the house, loses his mind when I leave a room, or when a babysitter shows up - watch out! Big boy throws his head back and CRIES!
*seconds away from walking. He is all over the place and can crawl to the top of the stairs within a few minutes.
*says mama and dada to the appropriate parent
*when we wants something, he yells, "nanananananana!" It is pretty funny
*He has also started expressing displeasure by kicking. Good times.
*Excellent eater.
*Happiest baby I have ever seen.

Braley at 1 year:
Diaper = 4, but could easily wear 3s. He is tiny.
Clothes = 12-18 months, but again, could easily fit in 6-12. I just like to keep then in the same size, at least for now.
Favorite foods = any fruit and veggie pouch by Happy.Tot, cheerios, turkey, cheese, grapes, mac n cheese, all veggies pretty much, black beans, waffles, likes water, but really not in to milk.
*He is finally pulling up to stand. God love him.
*Still doing the army crawl. It is really cute. He is always pulling up the rear when the kids take off for somewhere.
*Snuggles like no baby has ever snuggled before. So adorable - he sucks his thumb and loves to just lay on your chest.
*Sensitive, smart, inquisitive. He loves to wave, clap, and his favorite song is the itsy bitsy spider.
*By far the most sensitive/high maintenance of my 3 kids. He is a special little boy. And man alive - does he ever love his momma! : )

I can't imagine how I got chosen to be the mother of these amazing little boys.
