|The boys just one year ago, they were still such babies!|
The boys have most of their teeth now with the exception of one or two molars. you can see in the pic above they only had about four teeth a year ago. I'm so glad to have my fears of choking eased with their new ability to fully chew food and they get to enjoy a much wider variety of foods because of it.
In the picture above they did not utter a single word other than mama (and maybe kitty), now they have a vocabulary of about 40-50 words and Caleb has recently taken up putting two words together (more on that later). The other two will probably follow suite within a few weeks if not days, as they always do. They've acquired so much personality in the last year which makes them a lot more interesting and fun (yay!) but also very opinionated too (boo!). This was the year they changed from babies to boys both physically and intellectually.
I do not have high hopes for 2013 since we are in the thick of the terrible two's and from what I've heard, three is not a whole lot better. And I'm pretty sure this will be the year that naps are given up for good. My only

This was too sweet not to share but the other day instead of running past the baby doll section of the children's museum the boys actually stopped and played there for a good 20 minutes. I must say it was one of the most endearing things I've seen the boys do. There is nothing like seeing your little boy pick up a baby doll, rock it, give it a kiss on the head and then put it to bed in it's crib. I'm glad the boys are getting in touch with their maternal side : )
