Happy Birthday

The babies celebrated their first birthday a couple of weekends ago. Yes, it feels like this is all going
by too fast, but I'm going to focus on the fun stuff, because I'm guessing that that's what you and Future Linus and Veda want to hear about. 

Here's the setup. Please note the Baby Foodie First Birthday Cupcakes at the front of the table. They were a hit with the babies - and the adults, too! The cupcakes in the center of the table were supposed to look like a bunch of balloons. Can you kind of see it??? Eh.... not exactly my greatest acheivement. 

Birthday boy and girl. Linus is a dinosaur, and Veda is a pony.

Enjoying their cupcakes. "Are you going to eat that?"

Giggling at Daddy blowing bubbles.

Playing with balloons. Don't worry - Veda got to play with one, too.

Everyone knows the best part of the present is the paper.

At 12 months of age...

Veda can crawl and has started to cruise. She has eight teeth and can point to the flap hiding an object in her peekaboo book. She says Mama, Dada, and Nana. She loves books and flips through them by herself. She has some pretty potent separation anxiety, and consequently cosleeps with us.

Linus is the world's fastest army crawler - so fast he looks like he's swimming - and is getting pretty good at cruising, too. He has eight teeth, and his first molar is starting to come in. He loves chasing balls - sort of like he's playing soccer, but with his hands. He says Mama, Dada, Papaw, and Veda ("Da").

They're pretty much the best babies ever.
