10 months

Has it really been 10 months? The time is flying by and we're having so much fun with these boys. It is so fun to watch their different personalities develop as they interact with each other and those around them. 

Reid seems to already have a sense of humor and enjoys making silly sounds to make Grant laugh. He loves bath time (and the pool) and getting squirt with water or when someone gets "bonked" in the head with a toy. I love his laugh, it is so full of joy. He loves to stand and play more than sitting and I think he will be the first one to start moving. He's a solid little boy (weighing 25 lbs. now) that loves to hug and bury his head in your neck.  He recently learned how to clap and gets so proud of himself when he does it. He's a super sleeper and is still taking 3 naps during the day and 12 hours at night. I think Reid might be a little shy because he doesn't often respond to new people when they talk to him like he does with us. He's a happy boy though and always has a smile for us. 


Grant is our dramatic little boy that loves to babble and shout when he talks to you. He always has something to say and will let us know how he feels. He can be very sweet though and enjoys reaching out to touch our faces and pat our cheeks. He loves his brother so much. He is constantly trying to get Reid's attention. Reid doesn't have to do much to make him laugh. Even a sneeze from Reid will get a laugh from Grant. Grant also loves Niko and Jack. Jack's jumping and barking always bring a smile or laugh to Grant's face and he often gets mad if he can't reach out and touch the dogs when they are near. I think getting to the dogs is going to one day be the reason for his crawling. In case you couldn't tell this boy loves to eat. When he gets a spoonful of baby food he says "mmm" afterward. He's a flirt with people at the stores and loves to flash them his cute little smile.

I'm so glad these boys have each other. Having a baby is wonderful but having twins is the best. The most exciting thing to watch with their development is how they have grown to recognize and respond to each other. They already seem like great friends and I can't wait to watch them get closer. 

I had to throw this one in because it is shows how most of our pictures turn out. Reid is usually looking at something other than us and Grant is shouting at us either in anger or happiness. This time he was not in the mood for pictures. 

Last month we flew to Denver for my sister-in-law's graduation (way to go Dr. Kelly!) The boys got to see all their cousins and enjoyed the attention.

We took a little drive down to Colorado Springs to visit the Air Force Academy where Clay started out.

Wow! 25 lbs! Annika only weighs 27 now. They are giving her a run for her money! They are darling, and I love seeing their smiles. Thanks for the updates. Annika was very excited to see her cousins, and she asks to see them again and again.
