Deck the Halls

This week has been so much fun, and it's only Wednesday!

Turning 10 months old seems to have 'clicked' another switch with the boys.
I have been reading a lot on naptimes as the boys get older.
I'm pretty sure they are starting the process of cutting out their morning nap.
Every morning they have been staying awake for 3- 31/2 hours!
They are taking a much later morning nap, and shorter (Of course, we can't miss our meal times!!hahaha)
Speaking of meal times::

Last night we FINALLY got our tree set up!
And it isn't even our original tree!
We took a quick trip to Goodwill and Brad found this beauty!
It was a $200 tree- 7 1/2ft HUGE tree. Goodwill was selling it for $30!!
The picture below is how we have it set up- we took the back half of the branches off and the entire bottom row, and it is still this big!

Blake wasn't a fan of the 'pokey' branches

But Eli loved it! :)
So today I tried to snap some 'official' 10 month pictures of the boys!

They are just too darn cute!
Here is our 10 month update.
(We have a doctor appointment on Dec. 10th- so I will be getting updated numbers on their height & weight then..)
--We have switched over to Size 4 Diapers now!
-I have cleaned out their clothes and packed up all of our 12 month Onesies
 - we are now totally in 18month onesies and shirts! *We are still in 12 month pants and will be for a while- they have such broad shoulders and big bellies- but tiny waists!!*
--They are completely walking now! It is very rare that they crawl anymore.
--Walking = BIGGER MESS. Now they can carry all of their toys everywhere with them! So all of their toys end up ALL over the house!
--Because they are walking, they can wear jeans now! As you can see in the pictures above, they look super cute in jeans! We have avoided jeans up until now, because jean material is so tight that when they would try to crawl, it would restrict their movement too much. They would end up sitting on the floor crying because they couldn't move.
So we can wear jeans now!!!! I love it!
Along with walking, Blake can now stand right up without having to hold on to anything or use an object to pull himself up! He puts his hands on the floor and sticks his booty in the air - and BAM! He's standing up and off running!
It is so amazing watching them walk. It is also amazing how much they love each other.
All they do is follow and chase each other around all day.
They are always together. It's so great that they have someone to play with 24/7!
It feels like so much has been happening this week in only 3 days! I am having so much fun watching them grow and playing with them everyday!
