23 Months

The boys are 23 months old today and I have no idea where the last year has gone. Earlier this month someone asked me how old they were and after a moment I replied, “they will be 2 next month”. As soon as the words left my mouth, I thought that can’t be right. They are turning 2 already…didn’t they just turn one.

Here they are one year ago today at 11 months. They were learning to walk and spent lots of time cruising along the front of the couch.

Now they are into everything, climbing and running  and very busy from the time they wake-up until it is time for bed. I have to plan more activities for them or they get bored playing with their toys and look for trouble. Last weekend we went to the mall – the main reason was to give the boys something new to see. They rode in the stroller for a while and then we let them walk and burn off some energy.

Yesterday we went to the park and then went to Shadyside and walked around – they enjoyed the dogs and other sights as we walked. They preferred the sidewalk to being in the stores.  As long as there are 2 adults we can take them on short outings without the stroller now. 

They are becoming more independent and they are so much fun! My little boys – I look at these pictures of them walking across the front yard this week and see so much about their personalities right now. Ru is running through life with a smile on his face, while Wy is walking with purpose…
