My sisters are one today! Mom's been super sappy the last few days saying "this time last year..." over and over again. But who can blame her? This has definitely been the crazy year of my life so far, I can't even remember life before the twins. I love them so much, I'm always giving them hugs and kisses (even though that frequently involves smothering).
Jacqueline has four teeth now and she loves to smile to show them off. We're best friends and I like to dance and sing for her to make her laugh. She really likes dancing and has to bounce and sway her head whenever music comes on. She really, really hates it when someone (who, me?) steals her toys and she'll cry with full on tears and makes mommy think that she's devastatingly hurt. She does the same when she see's me drinking from my sippy cup and mom has to get her a drink too. She loves climbing on blankets and pillows to snuggle them and like lounging on people like they're her personal recliner. She still loves to eat, but now also loves to watch stuff drop to the floor - mommy doesn't like that. Sometimes I drop things on the floor for her to watch and we laugh so hard - and then Stella eats it and we laugh even harder. She no longer lets mommy put headbands on her - she has lots of opinions about all kinds of things now.
Blake has become a mommy's girl. She cries when she leaves the room and always crawls over to mommy to pick her up. She'll holds on like a monkey and cuddles right into whoever she can get to hold her. She has 8 teeth and is getting more - maybe that's why she's such a big baby right now. When she's excited she crinkles her nose and when she's bashful she leans her head into her shoulder and smiles at you - she'll shyly wrap you around her finger, so watch out. She doesn't like when I play with her like I play with Jacqueline, not a fan - she cries for mommy, which she does all the time, so I don't feel bad. She doesn't play with me as much as Jac, but we all play together sometimes. She mostly just follows us around and does her own thing. She also doesn't care much about getting her toys stolen, she just moves onto something else. She's really more interested in trying to walk - she cruises on furniture and like practicing with the walker push toy - which is hard cause Jac will try to play with it while Blake walks and two baby pile ups occur a lot.
They got baby dolls for their birthday and I make sure that they're in their cribs at night - even if that means bursting into the room and dropping them in after they're asleep. Mommy's amazed that I manage to not hit them with the babies or wake them up at all! During the day I love carrying around the dollies and calling them Jac and Blake - I have twins just like mommy (and mommy gets mad when I try carrying around the real twins).
Sometimes when sisters are napping I want to wake them up so we can play, but mommy says no. They still need naps to be happy.
Okay, mommy, went crazy on the pictures she wanted to include in this post - but I'll let her cause she has been all sappy about this.
There isn't a single picture of me at the party because I was off playing with all the kids. I was napping when everyone got here and Daddy woke me up to sing happy birthday. I didn't want to wake up, but then he asked if I wanted a cupcake and I shot right up. Mommy was smart and wore a shirt the same color as the frosting - I didn't and ended up naked cause I was a filthy mess (which I HATE!). Singing happy birthday was really fun and I've been singing it all week. I love to sing, especially cause it makes Mommy and Jacqueline smile (and sometimes Blake).
Here's a picture with our favorite Scott - we all love him. Sister's birthday party was so fun cause there were tons of people there that we love and helped so much this year - I was really worried that Mommy would forget about me, but she had so much help that it was fine.
Sisters were really excited about present wrapping. All our cousins from Daddy's side were here and they all really liked to help open the presents.
And here are some pictures of mommy's decorations, cause she loves that stuff. The stuff on the wall is still up and I love playing with the tassels.
See, told you I wasn't in any pictures. Not even a family shot. Maybe this was just supposed to be a parents with the birthday kids shot. But, I'm not offended, I was playing and eating frosting covered everything - waaaaaay better than posing for a picture.
I love my sisters so much! I'm excited for when they can walk and we can run around together. Right now I crawl around with them, which is fun, but running will be so much better!! I have so much I want to teach them this next year. How to color, play with stickers, eat candy and pop, read books, watch TV, build towers, play hide and seek. So many things! Last year was great and next year will be better!
