9 months old and time to start party planning!

They twins are now 9 months old ::sigh:: and I just can't believe how fast they are growing up.  I am the luckiest mommy in the world to have these two literally perfect babies! They are so happy all of the time, they sleep like angels, I just love mommyhood!! Here is some shots from our photo shoot:

So we took the babies to their 9 month well baby check up and here are their current stats

Landon: 21.9 lbs, 28 1/4 inches long
Ava: 18.9 lbs, 27 1/4 inches long

They are doing wonderfully developmentally for being preemies.  They are doing most things that a full term 9 month old would be doing so we couldn't be happier!

So naturally since I now have only 3 months to plan their 1st birthday party, and for anyone who knows me I love to plan parties! I am most likely sticking with colors since they have plenty of birthdays that they will what characters or themes, I plan on doing a candy buffett like some I have seen online and on other blogs! I have started picking up glass containers already! I luckily have a mother in law who is super crafty so I am sure I will be requiring her help on favor tags and labels.  And I am most excited for doing CAKE POPS! I purchased Bakerella's cake pop cookbook today and I can't wait to practice!

I'm thinking that each of the babies will have their own smash cake and then I will have cupcakes for all of the adults and kids at the party! I am such a fan of cupcakes rather then a sheet cake! Well I just wanted to update really quickly, I am still doing horribly at blogging regularly but its hard to be a working mama of twins.
