Our babies are a-growin’ and hit three and twenty-one months this week.
Maren is so funny. She’s starting to experiment with her voice and engage in back and forth dialogue. I love the baby noises! She’s also bringing toys to her mouth and loves to suck on her hands. She is still sleeping 7-9 hours in a stretch at night. She hasn’t found her thumb yet, but I think she may eventually. Her really crappy latch isn’t affecting her weight gain, obviously. I love her chunky little bod.
Favorite things: her brother, anyone gazing into her big blue eyes, music, crinkly toys, bath time
Weight: 14 pounds, 9 ounces
Clothes: 6 months already and size 2 diapers at night
Dislikes: the car seat (still), having to entertain herself for any amount of time, getting her nails clipped
Silas is such a chatterbox. I feel like I say that every month. But he’s saying complete sentences and repeating everything he hears. Today he told me to “have a seat” and I cracked up. He’s getting pretty brave these days and scaling whatever he can find. Tim left the gate off the stairs and before we realized he had gone up, he had crawled all the way back down on his belly, head first. I’m so glad I wasn’t there to witness it. He loves M and is so darling with her. He gets right down close to her face and whispers to her in toddler language and then says “I WUV you”. My heart melts every time. He’s stretched out again and seems tall and lanky these days. His gappy little teeth are just darling, and, despite his lisp, inability to say R’s, and his complete avoidance of consonants, we understand most of his many, many words and ideas. This week brought about his third black eye and his first busted lip. He’s all boy.
Favorite things: his sister, the barn and animals, bubbles, books!, wooden puzzles, any vehicle he can find
Weight: 28 pounds, 5 ounces
Clothes: 3T jammies, 2T shirts, 18-24 months pants, growing out of size 6 shoes already
Dislikes: limits of any kind, when daddy leaves, lots of new foods all of a sudden
Get a load of these two.
