13 months!

Yeah, today my babies are 13 months old. This last month has flown by. Rowan can walk now, and Saoirse can stand. They look more like children every day, and less like babies. They hit 20 lbs, and we turned around their carseats. So now they face the front, and we can see them when we look back. It's strange what a difference it makes. It means they participate so much more when we're in the car. Before, it was like once we put them in there and strapped ourselves in, we might as well be in another car. We could hear them, but have no other contact. Now we can see them, the passenger can reach back and touch them or hand them things. It's fun.
Saoirse climbs more every day. This was this morning, and she did this without assistance:

Also, they're working on being able to undress themselves. They're not very successful, but they managed to create a Flashdance look for themselves this afternoon:

In other news, I don't want to jinx it, but it looks like the house is almost finished. They were pouring concrete when the girls and I stopped by this afternoon, and our contractor told us we can schedule an inspection next Wednesday. Everyone keep your fingers crossed!!....:) Here are the girls in their new room.
