I'll cry if I want to!

Okay so this might not be funny to anyone else but I thought it was hilarious! Tyson and Chelsie looked so cute so I tried to take their picture... but it was way to close to nap time so they cried the entire time. I snaped the pics anyway and found myself completely laughing by the end. It took me back to when they were first born and they would cry at the same time and it would sound like two sirens just off in their timing- making continuous noise. Their cry had two different pitches and Chelsies' had a squeak at the top- it always made me laugh (well for a few minutes anyway)! I just love the pic of them looking at eachother and crying. Then Chelsie became quite interested in Tysons hair. And finally at the end she gave me a BIG smile for the camera!

Where did the time go?

Tyson and Chelsie turned a year old on February 1st! I can't believe how quick that went by! I can't believe I made it a whole year nursing 2 babies! It was bitter-sweet to wean them but it was also surprisingly easy. (my other 2 not so much)

10 things about Tyson:

1. He does everything with his tounge hanging out
2. He crawls over anything in his way, including Chelsie
3. He can make brilliant noises with his tounge (clicking, rolling, waging, etc)
4. He loves his mama and always want to be held by me and only me
5. He was the first to say mama and still yells it at me when he wants food
6. He steals anything Chelsie is holding and any food she has left on her tray if his is empty
7. He loves bath time and splashes up a storm (lookout Chelsie)
8. He pulls off his pants and throws them and his blanket out of the crib if I take too long getting them up after they wake up
9. He has the sadest cry- you can't help but pick him up and give him a snuggle
10. He has a funny laugh but you have to work pretty hard to get him going

10 things about Chelsie

1. She is the most giggley baby I have ever seen! She laughs long and loud and free
2. She let Tyson take all of her stuff with nothing but a "uh" in protest and then moves on
3. She has a great set of lungs and can really wail
4. She loves to be held and will let anyone hold her
5. She loves to play pat-a-cake and was able to do all the motions by 9 mo's
6. She says "mmmm" after every bite of food and shakes her head when she is done
7. She gives nice wet open mouth kisses (sweet)
8. She weighed 5 oz. less than Tyson at birth and now it is more than 5 lbs. less
9. She smiles for the camera (although it is a bit of a funny expression it is the same everytime)
10. She cut all of her teeth at one time. she went from 0 to 7 then to 12 with the other 4 on their

It has been so fun to see two babies grow up at the same time. to see their different personalities and a very distinct difference between a boy and a girl. While the beginning was very difficult and tireing ( and I know there is more where that came from), the blessings really are double! I love you Tyson and Chelsie! Happy Birthday!
