11 Months

We have less than one month until the boys turn ONE YEAR OLD.  It is hard to believe that they are that old already.  It is also hard to remember what they were like when they were newborn because they are so much bigger and active.

This month we have noticed that they call out for each other when they are in different rooms or can't see the other one.  They aren't in distress or worried about the other one, but it is more of a conversation like "Brother are you there?" "I'm Here."  They have not been apart much since they were born, so it is natural that they want to make sure the other one is there.  

We are currently wearing size 12 month clothes and some 12-18 month clothes.  When we wear shoes they are size 3-4 and we wear size 3 diapers during the day and size 4 diapers at night.
