Happy Due date!

January 12th is a special day for us. It was our original due date. Wow, I can not imagine how big I would have been with them by then...
They are 12 months developmentally. They are nicely catching up with their peers. This last couple weeks Lili mastered her walking as well while we are diligently coaching Matthew, who is getting around really nicely. It's a joy to see him getting into stuff now. He loves his new red rubber donkey "Roddy". He loves bouncing on him.
Both Mate and Hanna have their first mauler while the others are still dealing with the swollen, itchy gums. At night though they sleep really well.

From this week we started them on some dairy. After 14 months of supplying breast milk the Milk bank stopped providing since our children are 1 year corrected age now.
We still have some reserved pasteurized milk and Manna is still pumping+ nursing them :)

So far they have not been sick. Huge praise!

Annabelle (16 lbs-9oz) is still very sensitive when she sees people she is not used to being around. Separation anxiety. I am sure many moms can relate. She is so much fun to be around. She is still very dainty and extremly playful.
It's fun to see how different they are when we take them out (very sometimes)
Lili (17lbs-12oz) is usually the cream of the party. She goes up to anyone.
Hanna (17lbs-9oz)needs to take everything in first then she loves venturing out. If she doesn't like something or not ready for something she tells us right away.
Tomi (19lbs-1oz)is still very charming and so full of joy. When he wants something nothing can stop him. (maybe our fenced family room).
Mate (19lbs-4oz)is so sweet as he can be. He is a flirt. Taking thin liquid is still an issue but we work with him on that very patiently 3 times a day. He has the best therapists! Not only him enjoy their sessions but we do too.
Explanation for the pics:
1)Our messy big boy is Máté (he had some prunes)
2)Our adventuresome buddy is Tomi who used the therapy ducky to look out what's going on...
3)Hanna needed a place to rest. The box with socks came handy for a little siesta.
4)"Papa Cliff" as the judge of the "skirt contest". Their tights won :) They are from their Hungarian great grandparents
