    I simply can't believe it. My tiny Tot Monsters are having their first birthday. It seems like only yesterday I was hovering in the NICU, watching every breath and praying lots and lots.

    Now they are big, robust and healthy.

    Baby Tyrantina has mastered the art of standing up and then sitting down, rather than falling.

    Baby Tyrannosaur is just getting up the gumption to start taking steps, although he's still a bit iffy on the skill side. (That THUD you hear is Tyrannosaur hitting the deck -- no yowling though)

    We've made it through the first year. More adventures to come.:D

    Happy Birthday to my Tot Monsters, to Star's Dude, and to all the other Leos out there!

    Amazing how quickly time has flown. Give them each a big hug from Auntie Faine or Aunt Fam(depends on which child in the family is calling me).

    My difficult child will be 26 on the 23rd. Those Leo's are a force to be reckoned with.

    OMG, I cannot believe it's been a yr. Wow.
    They sound so cute!

    As an added thought, it's great that you have so much real life experience and insight to know that they are Autism Spectrum Disorders (ASD)-is at this early age. You are wonderful. Just yesterday, I read a report about a couple with-a 13-mo-old on an airplane that were questioned upon landing because they had repeatedly slapped their crying toddler loudly enough to disturb the other passengers. And the husband was verbally abusive to his wife, too. Talk about pecking order.

    YOU GO!

    Valerie, I agree that today is a lovely day to be born. Hope your difficult child had a lovely birthday too.

    The Tots had a pretty good day, getting spoiled rotten by difficult child and Nana (well, from what I hear. I got stuck in some fairly dreadful meetings at work, and missed nearly the whole thing). We are having another party for them on the weekend, so I will catch up then. husband hasn't yet downloaded the birthday pictures yet, but here are a few other recent ones:

    [pictures deleted]

    I will post a picture of the Tots in their silly birthday bonnets as soon as I can get my hands on one.
