11 months old

I can't believe we are less than a month away from these babies turning one. Because seriously - woah!

That being said, we've come a long way!

- now has 6 teeth cutting his 6th tooth on his 11 month birthday. He's well on his way to catching up to Juliette now in the teeth department
- can pull himself up in his crib (and gnaw on the sidebars - awesomeness) but can't get himself back down. this is a pain.
- crawls. like properly. like I've heard babies crawl. Kind of neat to see. And he's fast!
- Still a cuddler and a bit of a mama's boy - but way less so now that there's so much to see and do. He is on the verge of being able to stand on his own, but doesn't seem interested in walking even with us helping.
- loves to drink water
- Wearing clothing Kiernan wore when he was 2 - 2.5 years old
- dances by shaking his head back and forth like he's saying no. It's hilarious and must make him dizzy
- Will allow daddy to rock him to sleep (or me too. essentially, he does not NEED to nurse to sleep)
- likes to pull stuff down off shelves and rip down safety guards
- loves his stuffed bear
- LOVES the remote. but only the cable remote, not one that we don't care if he touches.
- points at everything

- Can say maymay (that's mommy) and mmmmmo(more) and AH! AH! AH! (which means "look at me" or "yes!" or "I'm happy"
- loves to dance and does it whenever she is happy (when she sees mommy or daddy she immediately yells ah! ah! and then dances)
- will NOT allow anyone to rock her to sleep. Two options exist: nurse or scream to sleep (although there are the rare exceptions to this rule)
- still has 8 teeth
- pulls herself up on everything and gets back down by dropping (hard) to her bum. She isn't really walking along things but will pull herself up on toys that slide across the floor and push. Otherwise it's up and down and up and down with her army crawl between.
- is on the verge of standing on her own
- eats really well
- drinks water out of a sippy on her own
- loves to grab whatever her brother is holding
- likes to join Kiernan in whatever he is doing. Much to Kiernan's dismay
- likes to pull stuff down off shelves and rip down safety guards

Get us out of here!!

This is my brother Kiernan. He is fun to point at and/or harass by trying to take over what he is doing.

I've never met your husband, I'm thinking Quinn must look like him though, because Juliette is a spitting image of you!

They're too cute, Mama!

Chris saw the last photo and laughing, asked "what's THAT in the middle of his forehead?" (Because Ian is sporting a matching one!)
