For the record...

Ansley took her first real steps on June 16th and has been walking ever since!!! She still crawls more than walks but she is getting there.

Kinley took her first real steps last night, June 27th!!! She is already taking several steps and I know she will be a full on walker in no time.

A post (or 2) dedicated to Kinley showing off!

This video is for my dad! Kinley has just started saying "Papa"

The other video

It was easier to post in 2 posts!

This video is of Kinley giving "kisses"! Quite possibly one of the cutest things I've ever seen!

Blogging Failure!

That's me! But oh well... I made it through the first year of having twins!!! Honestly, when they were about 4 months old I thought I would never make it! The girls are getting so big and I can't believe everything that they are doing. I will make a quick list for each and promise more posts to come with pics and their AMAZING 1st birthday party (if I say so myself)!

Kinley
- 19 lbs 3 oz
- 28 inches
- Size 3 diapers
- Pretty much 9 month clothing but we put them in 12 months
- CRAWLS! This is awesome. Kinley wasn't even rolling at 11 months. We put her in physical therapy (PT) and on March 3rd she did it! I have never been more excited for a milestone. She had been working so hard and she just started. She never did belly crawling just all 4's!
- Pulls up to kneeling
- Waves hi & bye
- Signs more
- Has said "Thank You"
- Says "Dada" "baba" and a ton of other random consonants except no "mama"
- Extremely picky eater
- So cuddly

Ansley
- 20 lbs
- 28 1/4 inches
- Size 3 diapers
- Pretty much 9 month clothing but we put them in 12 months
- Crawls
- Pulls to standing
- Waves hi & bye
- Signs more
- Says "mama", "dada", "baba", "nana", and lots of other random sounds
- LOVES to eat! She just shovels food into her mouth. We are always afraid she is going to choke
- Is quite the explorer and is VERY busy

Kinley & Ansley,
Mommy & Daddy were so surprised to find out there were expecting a baby on September 2, 2008 and we were STUNNED to find out on the 22nd that we were going to have TWO babies!! Now here we are in March 2010 and we have two beautiful, healthy 1 year olds!! I cannot believe how fast it went. You both are full of so much personality yet you are so different. It is amazing to see just how unique you both are. I am truly blessed by being your mother and I know your dad feels the same way. My prayer for the two of you is that you grow up in a healthy, happy Christian environment. I pray that we don't teach you that happiness is the most important thing in life because sometimes to get to the greatest points in life there will be periods of unhappiness. But instead you learn from us how to gracefully deal with those periods of life and when you come out on the other end you feel blessed for having that experience. I pray that you are strong examples of how to be a Christian even when it is the hard thing to do. I want people to look at you and wonder what you have that sets you apart from the world and for you to have the strength to teach them that it is Jesus Christ. I hope that you learn to laugh at yourself and have fun in life. I pray that you both find a strong, Christian leader and you continue to learn and grow with him through all the fun and hard times life will bring you as a married couple. There is so much more that I continually pray for you beautiful girls. I love you so much and you always make me proud.

Love,
Momma

10 months and counting...

Well, they will actually be 11 months in 11 days! That is so crazy but I figure I should blog about their 10 month. They are changing so rapidly. It is incredible to watch them grow and learn new things. Ansley has learned to get to a sitting position from laying down. Let's just say this has not been a fun new trick at night. She wakes up often now and when we go in she is just sitting in the middle of her crib. Kinley likes to sleep with her face pushed in the corner of her crib. I need to get a picture of this!! It is not very settling for mommy and daddy. Ansley says Mama!!! She started saying it on a regular basis on the 27th. Let's just say I love hearing it and can't wait for Kinley to start! Kinley has finally started getting her 1st tooth!! It broke through on the 27th. That was a big day in the Pittenger house! We are eating table food 3 times a day! Ansley will eat anything you put in front of her but Kinley seems to be a little too much like her mommy in this area. She is extremely picky and when she decides she doesn't like something, she will purse her lips and turn her head. We are having to really push veggies with her! I know there are so many things I am mising but that's it for now. I will leave you with some pictures of my beautiful baby girls!

Holy separation anxiety...

Ansley is experiencing this in a BIG way. She gets her self so worked up she can't breath which then upsets Kinley. She even does this when I am in her sight but not next to her. Any tips on how to deal with this? I don't want her to need to be with me. I even tried putting her back towards the door and distracting her with toys but NOPE she needs me to be RIGHT next to her.
