Well we had quite an exciting couple of weeks between Halloween, Ellie's birthday, Stella starting to walk, and the Twins' 1st birthday. It almost seems mellow around here now!
I don't have pictures from the party yet, but soon I will get them from our Awesome photographer and friend Aherne DelPero and I will post them here. For now, here are some from a family photo session we did just this week. I was lucky enough to win a family session from Moments To Remember after I entered a giveaway on their blog, these are the beautiful pictures she captured.
Stella started walking just a few days before her birthday. She took about 15 consequtive steps before her birthday. And then on November 17th I'd say she was walking as far as she wanted and getting up to walk from a sitting position not holding onto anything.
Nov. 18th Stella can point to her nose when you ask "where is your nose"
Today I watched Ellie kick a soccer ball for the first time that I know of and she's pretty good! But notably left footed- true to her left handedness!
Axl is an eating machine. He's never been as crazy into breastfeeding as his sister, but he can put back finger food like no other!~ He picked up Ellies 1/2 PB&J recently and took a couple bites like it was no big deal.
Lately Axl has been waking up with Stella at 4:30 to nurse then they both go back to bed until 7, when daddy gets up with them and plays till I wake up a little later. Life is good!
