Where are the Wondertwins at 12 months?

I'll start with Little Frog since she is 1 minute older.

* Has 8 teeth, 4 on top and 4 on bottom.
* Does a strange army scoot that reminds me more of an inchworm, than anything else.
* She loves her blankey and paci. She needs both to sleep.
* She needs lots of sleep. She goes to sleep around 7:30 and sleeps until about 7:30.
* She sleeps HARD. Not much will wake her.
* She has great rhythm and bounces up and down to music.
* You can give her a pile of books and she will sit there reading them, talking to herself, turning the pages for a solid hour if uninterrupted.
* Likes to be pushed in the ride on toy.
* Most of the time she points, signs more, all done, and Daddy.
* When you put food (that she likes) on her tray, she gobbles it up by the handful as fast as you can get it down.
* Her new thing is to try to follow the dogs... She laughs and giggles every time they look at her.
* She is very wary of people she doesn't know. She will stare at new people or, if they are holding her, will start crying.
* She is very sensitive. If someone fusses at her she cries (especially when she is told, "no biting!")
* She LOVES to play with gift cards and paper!
* Her favorite thing to wear is just her fuzzi bunz diaper. She will squeal and hit her hands on her tummy, laughing the whole time. It is the funniest thing!

Monkey Boy:
* He LOVES to breast feed! He comes running any time I sign "milk".
* He shakes his head "no" whenever he can't do something (for instance, when his sippy rolled under the stroller. He had a cracker in one hand and couldn't crawl after the sippy. So, he shook his head "no".
* Anytime I am eating something he comes over to beg for food.
* He has 8 teeth. 4 on the top and 4 on the bottom.
* He eats very slowly. He will pick up a cherrio and nibble on it... eating them one at a time.
* If given a book he will flip the pages, but soon goes to eating it or trying to tear off the pages.
* He picks up any little thing and puts in it in his mouth.
* He throws fits... For instance, if I am eating something and he crawls up... if I don't give him a piece fast enough he jumps, throws himself down and makes a cry sound (though it is not real crying).
* He gets focused on what he wants and will not give up until he gets it.
* He is a VERY fast crawler.
* He can walk, but usually only does it in the living room or walking to get to mama.
* He loves to play "monster". He growls at mommy and daddy.
* He LOVES to push Bree around in the little ride on toy.
* Is a very light sleeper. If someone goes in the room to check on them he will pop right up.
* Can sign all done, but only does it occasionally.

Though they are so different, they are both such wonderful babies. I love them more than words could ever express!
