I've had this plant for almost a year now and I'm not sure what it is. It has babies growing at its base and I'm not sure what to do with them.

Looks like a Senecio or Kleinia, but I could not tell you more than that. You can leave the babies where they are or separate them to start new plants.

Beautiful! Well grown. ;)

If you investigate more closely, I think you'll find that the growths at the bottom are branches like the ones at the top part of the plant. Babies implies offsets, fully formed young plants with root systems.
