We're 10 months old

The twins are old months old! Time just keeps flying (as everyone says). Here is their 10 month pic (side by side with their 4 month and 1 month pics).

Kate and Connor are cruising all around the house, pulling up on any and all furniture. They both love walking when you hold their hands, but haven't yet figured out how to walk on their own. I guess I should be grateful, as it's hard enough as it is to keep up with the two of them. We experimenting with trying to get them to stand on their own. So far, it's just a moment before they sway and dall down on their cute little butts.

Both the twins still have blue eyes, and Connor is starting to grow faster than our more petite Kate. Last month the Doctor said that Connor was just 1 inch taller. While I wasn't sure she was right then, it's certainly a more pronounced difference now. He's easily 2 inches taller than she is. They both have lots' of hair, but especially Kate. I haven't cut her hair yet (but she doesn't want to hold still for it either). Time will be coming soon.

The twins are really good eaters. Pretty much anything that you put in front of them that they can eat with their fingers, they'll happily eat. The only real exception is that Connor just won't eat green beans (cooked or raw). Kate eats cauliflower, yellow squash, zucchini...anything. We've still avoided giving them sweets (except the jumbo rice crispies that seem to have more sugar added). Connor has a pincher grasp, while Kate still rakes her food in her hand.

We still aren't using a sippy cup (they seem to want to bite the spout), so I'm just now beginning to try using a regular cup for them (I hold it while they drink, and then choke on it). We're still doing 4 bottles a day, but now we also have 3 full meals a day too.

To my pleasant surprise, the twins still nap 3 times a day. They wake at 7:30, nap from 9:30 - 10:45m, 1:15 - 2:45, and again from 5 - 6:30. then, they're off to bed at 8pm. Lot's of sleep, but then again - they are learning and processing a lot every day.
