11 Month Twin Update

Wow!  That is all I can say!  The twins are 11 months old today!  One more month and they will be a year old!  Time has flown by but in some cases that is ok because having two infants is ridiculously hard, I mean want to loose your mind hard!  If I didn't have Nick by my side for the last 11 months I would be in a world of hurt.  There are some people who love babies, we are not those people.  We like toddlers and teenagers.  So we are looking forward to the next stage with the twins.  It will be chaos but oh so much fun!

Nick and I make a great team and Cali is a big help.  She continues to amaze me with her love for her little brother and sister.  I hear things like "Mommy, I made Hannah laugh", "Mommy, Henry and I are playing family" or "Mommy, the babies want you".  So sweet!  She is also the best way to get the babies happy if they are grumpy.  Cali will start singing and dancing around for the babies and the tears stop.  She is our secret weapon!
Henry 11 months

Hannah 11 months

Food - Four bottles a day of formula and three solid food meals.  Hannah takes 5-7 ozs, Henry 5-8 ozs.  They are eating a ton of food these days.  Favorites are: chicken, mac-n-cheese, cereal, green beans, pancakes, waffles, and veggie chips.  Henry can eat as much as Cali during some meals!  Nick mentioned today that Henry is going to be expensive to feed.  If we are eating out we order a kids meal for the babies to share.  
Sleep - They take a morning nap and an afternoon nap.  They nap at 10am and 3pm.  They go to bed at 8pm and wake up around 7:00am.  Hannah doesn't need as much sleep as Henry so she will wake up from the afternoon nap about 45 minutes before Henry.  She has even skipped the afternoon nap a time a two.  Not a good idea in my book!
Clothes - Hannah is in 6-9 and some 9-12 month.  Henry is in 9-12 and 12 month size.
Weight -  Hannah 16 lbs 15 oz Henry 20 lbs 7 oz  (they went to the Dr. this week so these are the official numbers) Yes Henry is 3.5 lbs bigger than Hannah!
Height - Hannah 27.5 inches Henry 29 inches  
Diapers - Pampers size 3
Health - Hannah's Hemangioma looks so good.  We are in the process of reducing her medication and will go in December to see if she needs further treatments.  Henry has a small ear infection so he is on anti-biotics.
At the Dr. this past week.  Henry on left, Hannah on right. 

Fun Facts - Hannah has 2 teeth and Henry has 3 with a 4th about to break through.  Henry continues to climb onto anything he can find.  He is also getting very good at standing so walking is just around the corner.  Hannah's official first word is "Momma" and she knows it means me!!

Fearless Henry

Now we get to start planning the twins first birthday party!  Cali has already picked out the theme of Mickey and Minnie.  I think it works!

Here is Cali at 11 months!
