This video is too funny not to share. We gave them their first drink of pop the other day. Court was drinking a Squirt and I don't why we decided to give them a taste, maybe they were acting interested in it. I don't remember. By the time we started taping, Jack wasn't making funny faces anymore, but Avery had one more good one left. Silly girl!!

Today has been a fun day and I managed to capture some of it on video. First, we had breakfast and Avery and Jack were in good moods. Avery performed right on cue when I asked her if she was all done. They know a few signs, but Jack doesn't do them often at all. Avery is much better at using them. All done is her favorite.
We spent the afternoon with our twin friends and when we got home we had dinner. When Auntie Stef got home from work, we had a little ticklefest. Jack's giggle is as cute as it's always been. Here he is giggling. You can hear Avery right at Stef's ankles trying to get her to play with her as well. She is being her cute self, shrieking and talking.
And it was Avery's turn to play ticklefest with Auntie, she lets out a couple of really loud screams. She gave Stef and I the giggles, too.

Sorry that the video is crooked for part of the time, I was trying to be discreet so wasn't distracted by it.

Avery napped for almost 2 hours yesterday and Jack slept for his usual 30-45 minutes so he and I played downstairs together. I had played with bubbles a few times in the past but it's been a while. This time he was way more aware of what was going on.
That's all for now.

I've heard from a few people that I haven't blogged in a while so that means I better get to it. We go through these phases where for no reason life gets/seems to get really crazy. Nothing is any different from any other day; it just seems crazier. Hopefully things will calm down for a while and I can blog more frequently.
Of course, photos and a video are below:
Jack and Avery riding their new train together. This was a gift from the Masons and Jack and Avery LOVE it.
This was about 10 seconds later. Jack tried to get off and then Avery tried to follow. It didn't go so well.

There are more photos to the right under "March - 1 Year Old".
Avery and Jack shared their birthday party with their cousin, Lillie. She turns 6 on March 5th and she was gracious enough to share with the little ones.
Jack was a typical boy with his cake, he had it dismantled very quickly and didn't even realize that he could also eat it until someone put a piece in his mouth. Avery was very dainty and neat (compared to Jack) with her cake.
This video is several minutes long, but it's fun to watch them discover the cake and enjoy it. Katie (the dog) even got in on some of the cake eating.
I was fiddling with some new video editing software that I got for Christmas and had no idea what I was doing. I was just trying to edit out the junk and when I uploaded this to blogger, it got all fancy and had music along with it. It actually isn't all that bad, but I would've changed the title from "Story Theatre" if I knew what I was doing.
These are a few clips of Jack and Avery walking on their birthday. They are getting pretty good at it.
