Morgan's One Year Stats: 24 pounds and 30 inches (90% and 75% percentile)

Morgan - the crazy one as we call her! She is not lacking personality that is for sure. She is extreamly outgoing and always happy. Over the past few weeks she has been obsessed with her birthday tutu, she wants to wear it ALL the time. She finds it brings it over to me, sits down and puts her feet in it, no matter what she is wearing!! She also loves shoes, jewlery and anything else girly! She is talking quite a bit, her favorite words are HI! and bye-bye, she also says books, ball, nana, and a few others. The other day she has decided to be a little helper and she brought me 2 diapers so I could change her and Maddi. Then after I got them dressed she picked up there pajamas one piece at a time and walked them over to the hamper - it was amazing. We told her good girl and she started clapping for herself, so proud. She is also pretty aggresive though, she gives Cooper a run for his money if he takes something she will go after him fighting and screaming. She likes to take things from Maddi b/c she doesn't take them back usually she just cries! But latley Maddi has been fighting back - and they have actually been in a "fight" a few times. I did see Morgan show her teeth one time and that is when I jumped in and said "no no" I just pray we don't have a biter on our hands. They both understand what "no" means sometimes better than Cooper I think! Morgan is very outgoing and loves people and attention - she on the other hand thinks she doesn't need to nap and after about 5 minutes in the highchair she is ready to get down and run around. She is into everything - reminds me of Cooper at that age.

I decided to post some individual pics and talk about each on seperate instead of putting them together this time...
Maddi's One Year Stats - 26 pounds and 29 inches (95% and 50% percentile)

Maddi's personality has really changed over this first year, she has become such a happy laid back girl. She loves to sit back and watch what is going on. She is the more cautious one. She is very loud and likes to be heard - - her two favorite things are sleeping and eating. A girl after mommy's own heart! She loves Cooper and always wants to see what he is doing, he calls her Baby kins, he made it up and he loves it. He always wants to kiss and hug her first thing in the morning and she has started giving kisses back. The sweetest thing is in the morning when we go and get them out of their cribs we carry them both down the stairs at the same time and Maddi leans over and gives Morgan a kiss - Morgan has started leaning in for it, it is so cute. Maddi loves daddy and says dada all day long. Now that Stephen has started commuting to Atlanta she doesn't get to see him during the week and she will go outside his office door and look at me and say "da da?" It is very sweet. In the middle picture you will notice the pacifier, she has never taken one until lately - she was sick last week and that is all she wanted. She is also cutting two teeth on top so she likes to bite on it. But hopefully we will get rid of that soon!

Happy 1st Birthday Morgan and Maddi

Well we made it through the first year!! Hooray for us...haha. The girls had a great day today, we had the family over and let them open presents and go at their own cakes. Maddi was the first to "dig in" She started nice and slow just dipping her finger in the frosting and licking it off then all of a sudden she decided it was much more efficient to just bite the cake! Morgan tried to pick up the entire thing and bite it. They both had fun and had cake all over them from head to toe! Even up their noses, it was great! They are both doing well however they are both getting teeth yet again so we have our moments now and then. They have also started "fighting" it is crazy - - mostly over me. One is sitting in my lap then the other comes over and gently pushes that one out of the way then all heck brakes loose! Maddi has started head butting, I couldn't believe it the first time I saw it but now I know when she is getting ready to do it and I say loudly "NO" and she stops. Morgan has started biting, so far she has only bitten me and hopefully she won't get to Maddi or else that would be ugly. We bring them tomorrow for their one year check up so I will post the stats tomorrow. Cooper is doing well - I am trying to keep him as busy as possible. His first camp starts next week, it is Bugs camp and he is very excited about that. Overall we are doing well - lots of changes going on around here so busy as always!
