Before it's no longer October I better document the fact that my two sweet babies turned ONE on October 15th! I cannot believe that I have two 1 year-olds. Actually, wait, let me take that back. I can believe it because life has suddenly hit a whole new level of craziness. My day is consumed by cleaning up messes all over the house, chasing babies and keeping them from dirt or rocks or anything else they can get their hands on. But it's also consumed by double the giggles, smiles and cuddles. I really feel so grateful for Max and Clara.
A lot of people have asked me if this year has gone by fast - the answer to that is mostly "no." :) This has been, by far, the hardest and longest year of my life. We have been beyond exhausted for over 365 days, and I know that exhaustion probably won't really go away. We have had a lot of loooooong nights and early mornings. But it does seem crazy that my two itsy bitsy babies are now huge 1 year olds! I say "huge" because, really, they are big babies.
Max at 1 year:
Weight - 24 lb, 87%
Height - 32.3 in, 99%
Head - 49 cm, 98%
Clara at 1 year:
Weight - 22 lb 4 oz, 83%
Height - 30.5 in, 90%
Head - 47 cm, 93%
We celebrated a few days after their birthday with some family and friends. It was a fun little party in our backyard. Max and Clara are so loved!
Toys are obviously meant to be eaten.
The highly anticipated "double cake smash" didn't really go down how I would have hoped. Both Max and Clara kind of just poked the cakes. It may have been that they were just so distracted by all the people staring at them. Silly babies. If only they knew!
Pom-poms and confetti!
I love my little family of four!
