Almost 1 year!

Christian - 11 months

Katherine Standing up - 11 months!

Campbell, very busy! 11 months

How we roll at the pool, notice they are tied together! Hanging with buddy Kaitlyn!

I cannot believe we are at 11 months old! This (almost) year has FLOWN by! So much has gone on these past few months, here is a quick recap.

Campbell has gone from army crawling, to crawling to pulling up! He pulls up on everything. I think he is still 6-8 weeks away from walking as he can be chicken at times. He loves playing in tupperware (what is the deal with babies and tupperware?), he would fight any of his siblings for the remote and or cell phone and he absolutely cannot sleep without his lovey! He can feed himself and is the most skilled when it come to holding his own bottle and training on the sippy cup! Campbell now has 5 teeth, he has bit himself once that I know of. No blood drawn yet, but that day will come I am sure!

Katherine has also gone from army crawling, to crawling and pulling up. I expect her to take a few steps while holding onto something any day now! I have thought for sure she was about to do it several times now, but then she had second thoughts and just sat down. Katherine is obsessed with remote controls and cell phones as well. She also loves to grab Sammie's food and water when we are not quick enough to get it out of the way! She can feed herself and loves to dig the dropped foods out of the lip of her bib once her tray is clear. Hilarious! If you try and feed her something she will take it out of her hand and feed herself. K has 4 teeth and has bit her mama a couple times. I raised my voice at her and she stuck her lip out and dropped some serous crocodile tears, she's got it down! She makes the funnies faces by far...I will post some!

Christian went straight to crawling, no army crawling for him. He crawled awhile after the other two, but I think he wanted to do it right or not at all! I am not sure if he did not want to drag his tummy or what? He has not pulled up yet, but he has been up on his knees playing with his toys lately. That is what the other two did right before pulling up so I think he is not far behind. Christian has 5 teeth as well and they have all been good sports about teething! Lil C does NOT feed himself and I think he is doing it on purpose. Even if we hand his bottle to him he just drops him arms out to the side and screams until we hold it for him. I am letting this slide for now as he had a rough start to life.
The three of them are fun to watch. They follow each other around and Campbell and Katherine race down the hallway giggling when we leave the gate open. They all talk to each other when they wake up in the morning and after naps. This is nice as they keep each other entertained if we are not quite ready to get them up! The boys just had their first haircut a couple weeks ago, yes mama cried. They look like little boys now...not babies! :(

We also travelled with all 3 to Montana for my sister's wedding...we were gone over a week! They did very well on the flight and being in a stange environment, I could not have asked for 3 better babies!

Hope all is welll with everyone!
