One Year Old!!!

We survived! We had a little "family only" party for them yesterday, complete with prezzies and cake. If you look closely, you will even see Jack the Cat in the background through the sliding glass door. They did so well. They were fantastic at ripping up paper and loved their new toys. Liam just tore into everything and Lily was so dainty; sticking her pinky out as she ripped. Then, of course, it was time for their first cake- carrot cake with delicious cream cheese frosting that Abby helped decorate. I made the bibs myself and I think they did their job well. The babies devoured the frosting and mostly left the cake. I cannot believe how much has changed in a year- from 5 pound preemies to 20 pound, year-old, walking (they've each taken a few steps each on a regular basis but still mostly crawl), healthy babies. Here's to many happy birthdays to come! (Here, here!)

I love how little Lily pointed her dainty pinky and then how she looks like she is pointing to Liam's messy face! They are so cute! I think they are the same size as Brynn and she will be two in almost 3 months!

What beautiful babies you have there! I cannot even imagine how tiring it must be to chase after year-old twins. I get exhausted after chasing just one! Happy birthday, babies!
