Okay so this is the latest one yet...maybe so late no one is gonna read it, but it will be here for posterity..and for the babies whenever they want to come back and see what was going on during the twelfth month of their life. Very Important Stuff.
Actually my favorite part of this whole post is the picture sequence. Each month on the 30th I have taken the babies pictures. At month 10 it started getting a little tricky as they started to move around some. Month 11 was even worse, but we still got a good picture or two. Month 12 was a disaster (a hilarious one, but still a disaster). They wouldn't sit still AT ALL! As I look back at each month's pictures what's most apparent to me other than the obvious growth of my babies into children, is their emerging personalities. They definitely aren't lacking in that department!
Holden has been growing like a weed since we got back to North Carolina. He has most definitely gone through another growth spurt...i'd love to get him back to the clinic to get his weight and measurements!
Holden has really perfected his movements since this month as well. He can get wherever he wants to and he is into EVERYTHING. He is curious about everything, never misses a beat, has to look at and touch everything and unlike his sister has no problem leaving everyone's sight and getting into a little trouble. Grandma and Grandpa Caudle call his roaming "security detail". They even made him a cute SECURITY shirt to wear.
He's also quite destructive. He tears up everything in his way...there's no grace to this little boy, and that's really what he is--ALL BOY.
He also loves to cuddle and be close to me, but that is nothing new. What is new this month is all the men he has been able to be around. He really does love other men. It's so cute to watch him interact with them. I just can't wait for it to be time to hang out with his Daddy!
Holden still has a great appetite and eats almost everything. For this I am so grateful. I hope it lasts!
