10 MONTHS OLD!

Seriously, how have TEN whole months come and gone? Ten months of big life changes and learning how to adjust. Ten months of dirty diapers, bottle after bottle, spit ups, and meltdowns. (Some meltdowns by me included!) Ten months of doing one thing and then doing it again. Ten months of my life TIMES TWO! Ten months of smiles, laughs, giggles, and cuddles. Ten months of learning how to be a mommy, how to manage "me" time, and how to stay moving forward with confidence through all the chaos. And I wouldn't take any of it back for a second. Oh, who am I kidding, I would definitely take back the nights of very little sleep continually interrupted by one or two crying babies. I love sleep and sleep loves me. We have a very special relationship and would like to be reunited. (Please hear my plea, oh little twin babies! You are 10 months old and should be sleeping through the night without a peep.)

Ten months of watching each baby learn and grow. Ten months of watching them accomplish milestones at different times from one another: rolling over, holding toys, sitting up, first teeth, babbling, holding their own bottles, picking up food and feeding themselves, etc. And our little Will just last week started crawling and also pulling himself up to standing by holding onto furniture. Don't worry, Eli, not too long and you'll be doing the same!

They both within the last two weeks have started saying "mama" and Eli also says "mom". (Of course they both have been saying "dada" for months even though I'm the one who slaves over them while daddy's away at work. HA!) Oh, it makes my heart burst with joy! My baby twins are growing up! They are becoming little people! This makes me so unbelievably happy, but naturally a part of me is sad to see my little infants grow into toddlers. (But if growing into toddlers means better sleep for all of us, then please be toddlers tomorrow. Like I said, I love sleep and sleep loves me.)

Happy 10 Months Elijah & Will. Your momma loves you bunches and bunches.

What am I doing still sitting here typing writing this blog post? I should be off planning their 1st birthday party. Only 2 months left. Yikes! Gotta go!
