11 months in and things are going pretty well in the Soto house. Sebastian and Collette are crawling, climbing and standing all over the place. They are playing with each other (sort of) and loving it. They steal and fight and cry; they chase and talk and laugh. All typical, fun baby stuff.
I am enjoying it, too, I must say. I think if I were to look back at all these month-birthday posts, all have been pretty upbeat since about 7 months, when they learned to sit up. So, for people reading this out there with little newborns, it does get better. You can actually have fun with your kids in that first year, contrary to popular belief. I hear so many people say, in reference to their multiples, "I don't even remember the first year!" I hope I don't say that some day, when their first year is behind us. Because we have had a lot of good times. And yes, the job of being a SAHM to infant twins is still tough. Carrying them up and down stairs all day long, feeding them constantly, keeping them entertained, changing 17 poopy diapers per day, dealing with crying for no reason, dealing with crying for good reasons like new teeth, bruises and stolen toys. But overall, it's a good gig. I smile and laugh more than I did at any paying job I ever had. And I cry a lot less. Like, never. Always a nice measure of job satisfaction.
Also, I know this post is a day late. I'm not lazy or anything - it's just that I can't do the chair pictures alone, since I have kamikaze babies (don't we all, though!) and I need a spotter while I play photographer. As you'll see below, I shouldn't quit my day job. Anyway, here goes - Sebastian and Collette, 11 months old (and 1 day):
