Play time!!

Since we got so many toys for the babies first birthday, we needed a space to put them all. We took the dining room and made it into the play room for the babies. We bought a numbers and letters rug for their room. They love their play room. Often times we would go in there & they will be playing inside their toy box.
My sister & Tommy got them a little ball pit for their birthday. We finally moved the high chairs out of the play room so there was room to put it up. They definitely have a good time playing in it!! They like to get in and throw all of the balls out of it.
I don't think there is a single toy that they love the most. They play with everything. Sometimes the empty out the toy box just to get everything out. We do have a stand up and play station that they usually play with all the time. Ashton just likes to open and close the play laptop thing that is on it.

There will be times when they all 3 are playing in the play room and we hear giggling. Last night, they were playing with a book and making each other laugh. I love when they make each other laugh like that! We would peek around the corner and watch them play. Sometimes they play great with each other, other times they will take toys away from each other. But we have to let them work it out themselves.

The first year

It's been a little over a year since the babies were born. What an exciting year it has been. They are all pretty much the same from when they were born. Brittany is still the biggest and Caitlyn is still the smallest (in weight).

When Caitlyn was born, she weighed in at 2lbs 7.5oz. She now weighs 17lbs 15oz. She loves to be independent. Brittany and Ashton will fight over something and she will just sit back and watch. Caitlyn loves to eat pretty much everything. I haven't found anything that she doesn't like yet. She is standing on her own, but hasn't taken a step yet to try to walk. We do work with her every night by walking her to her crib. She loves to read books (she takes the book and flips the pages).

Ashton weighed 3lbs 7oz when he was born. He now weighs 19lbs 5 oz. Ashton loves to fight with Brittany. They will fight over anything!! Toys and attention are the big things that they fight over. Ashton has been standing on his own for a little while now. He has taken a step or two, but that's it. We work with him every night and walk him to his crib. He loves to eat!! I don't think he has a favorite food yet, if we put food in front of him, he eats it!

Brittany is the baby! She weighed 3lbs 12oz when she was born. She now weighs 19lbs 15oz. Brittany loves to fight with her brother. She is also a big daddy's girl. If daddy is holding someone else, she gets very upset! Brittany loves to eat!! We luckily haven't found anything they haven't liked yet. When I put her down for her nap, she will sometimes have a little temper tantrum. Not like screaming and crying, but throwing all of her stuffed animals either on the floor or in Caitlyn's crib.
