Where have we been?

It's hard to believe that it's been almost a year since I last posted on the blog! This first year with the twins has been exhausting, challenging and rewarding all at the same time. Any parent with multiples that has made it through that first year knows exactly how we feel. This major feeling of accomplishment is very gratifying!

So what have we been up to this past year? Anything and everything you can imagine with a 4 year old boy and twin girls. We've made it through so many hurdles as parents and can finally say things are getting a little easier for us. Those first 6 months were extremely tough on us, me in particular and it seemed like once the twins were able to move around and actually go play with toys that things started to slow down a bit. Now the girls are into absolutely everything, and I mean EVERYTHING!! Georgia is cruising down furniture and walks all over the place with anything she can get behind and push. We've caught her standing in the middle of the room but once she notices she's not holding on to something she sits down. I am waiting for the day that she just lets go and starts walking and I know it's coming soon. Abbygael is a very laid back child and refused to crawl in the traditional sense and gets around the room buy scooting on her rear end, it's hysterical to watch!! with her lack of movement and at 11 months old still having her crib up at the highest level the pediatrician suggested we seek a little physical therapy just to make sure something else wasn't going on that was causing her to not roll over or crawl etc... Well 4 weeks later her crib is now all the way down and she will roll over if she needs to but being on her hands and knees in that crawl position is NOT her favorite. She has started to pull herself up to the coffee table or sofa and will cruise slowly down them but gets stuck at the end. We will continue therapy for her until she is walking without any limitations.

I can't believe these two beautiful gifts from God will be 1 year old on Monday!! We are going to have a big celebration with our military family here and will post pictures and updates soon.
