A fellow twin mom still in the early days posted on a twin Facebook page I belong to that she guest posted about “A Day in the Life” of a mom of one month old twins. Even though it was less than a year ago for us I still read it and couldn’t believe that we once followed a similar schedule of eat, poop, nap every 3 or so hours. As of today, Abby and Miles are 11 months old. Already.
Abby is in size 3 diapers and mostly 9 month clothes. I’m pretty sure she has a second word: done (da). She’s rocking on hands and knees but still not pulling up to standing unassisted. She will stand and play holding onto something. She’s started sharing her food with others, taking a super slobbery bite and then offering it to whoever is holding her. She does a lot of babbling that I’m assuming she understands. It has the prosody of real conversation but consists of badadaddba etc. She’s also discovered the wonder of “if I throw this on the floor, mommy will pick it up again”.
Miles is in size 4 diapers and mostly 12 month clothes. We think he may have his first word: mama. I left the house and Bryan texted me saying after I left he started saying “mamama” and began to cry. He will standing holding on with one hand but can’t balance on his own yet. He’s figured out how to feed the dog and has also mastered “if I throw this on the floor, mommy will pick it up again”. He’s been a bit of a mama’s boy still – happy as a clam to be held or sitting in my lap.
We celebrated Bryan’s 37th birthday this week and had family in town including my mom and aunt and Bryan’s mom and step dad. We hung out with my friend Stacy’s daughter for the day while she was on spring break and Stacy worked. Abby enjoyed all the cuddle time, and admittedly Bryan and I were jealous because she doesn’t cuddle much with us – she’s a mover.

It goes by so fast! I cannot even believe it’s been 2 1/2 years since mine were born.
Random fact: holding both seems to get easier the older they are. I can hold both of mine now but could never master it safely before their first birthday. Lol.
