One Whole Year

Joshua and Julian will be one on Saturday! I can't believe it. When they were born almost one whole year ago all they could do was sleep, cry, take a bottle, and go to the bathroom. Now they crawl and scoot all over the place and pull up on furniture and walk along it. They clap and wave and put their arms in the air and bounce when their favorite songs are played. They are learning to problem solve and mimic others. They eat all kinds of food and hold their own bottles. They chatter all day and say dadada and mamama (though they haven't yet connected the words to Jason or me). They chase each other around and laugh. They look at the dogs and laugh. They certainly make me laugh! After almost a year of motherhood, I've never been so tired, but I've also never been so full of joy. 

Here's a recap of the year in photos.
