The Twins and Jack

It amazes me every day how fast time flies. I have been telling myself that I was going to sit down and update the blog about the twins first birthday. They are now 13 months today. Well.... better late than never. I still wake up every morning and am completely shocked that I have twins. I am not sure when I will get use to the idea. They are so full of fun and love lately. I can hardly stand how cute they are. They hate to hold still, always on the move. Their development has really caught up to each other. They both crawl, stand and walk around everything. They clap and try to do patty cakes. They love to wave good by. They both try to say ball and more (as well as sign it).  In the past few days they have both tried to stand on their own. I hope that walking is around the corner. Well, I kind of hope walking is around the corner. They lately have developed quite different personalities. Which is so fun to watch. Luke is loud and very energetic. Sam is reserved and thinks through everything he does. I love that they have some unique traits because the older and bigger they get the more they look alike. People mix them up all the time. Which is fun:) They both have two teeth, that were buggers coming in. All three of my kids have been horrible teethers.  They both give kisses now. Luke's kiss are more of a lick and Sam just makes the noise of a kiss. But either one melt their Moms heart!

We celebrated their first birthday monkey style. It was so fun. They loved the puppet show and eating the cake. Luke jumped right in stuffing it in his mouth, Sam was slow and a bit more neat about eating his cake but he loved it just as much. They got spoiled with fun new toys and a wagon! 

They are the sweetest little twin boys. I feel so blessed to have them in my life. On their birthday I couldn't help but think about what a rough start they had and how far they have come. I am reminded everyday how lucky I am to have them both.

Not only do we have the busy little twins but Jack is just as full of energy as ever. Jack had a great summer. We had the neighbor boys at our house everyday. Which was so fun. He has had a hard time jumping back into the whole school schedule. Now that we are on to week two it is getting better. It was the biggest shock to me when his teacher said she was worried about him because he isn't making friend and just sits in the corner. This probable sounds like a bad mom, but I told her to enjoy it because the second he feels comfortable he won't stop talking and playing, promise. He came home yesterday and told me that he has tons of friends and he love school. Phew!  He is still in karate and is getting better everyday. I love to go and watch him. He is getting too big, too fast. Jack loves his brothers and get down and plays with them all of the time. The twins think he is the coolest thing ever,which he is.
