So much changes in just a year. Just 10 months ago, Erin could barely keep propped up in the Bumbo seat we have for her. Now, she is known to walk over to the seat if we leave it out and sit herself in it, even though she’s too big for it. It never fails to make us laugh.

Gracie is so close to walking, too. She is holding on to things and walking from object to object, but it won’t be long before she is toddling around the room, too. She loves one our rocking horses. She’s still a little too small for the one granddad made for her, but the one dad had as a child is her favorite right now.

For our second year, we’ve created a new set of pictures on Flickr. We’ll be sure to add more as the year goes along.

It’s hard to believe that a year ago we became new parents, but one year later here we are! We now have two one year-olds. We were very fortunate to have both sets of grandparents and several of our friends join us for the birthday. We set up a tarp and let everyone’s kids run around the playground and grilled up some burgers and hot dogs. Everyone had a great time in the September heat.

The girls had chocolate cake for the very first time. It would appear that they are fans of chocolate. And cake.
