15-16 Months

M/P chasing bubbles

The boys had their 15 Month appointment last month....and they already 16 months old!

The amount of time I find to write in this journal seems to be inversely related to the curiosity and busyness of these two little boys. They amaze me every single day. The busier and more curious they become the less time I have!

The boys have officially learned that the doctor's office = crazy ladies with needles. They started crying at the first sight of a nurse. Good news is that all looked well. They are are maintaining their same pace on the growth curve, so that's the most important thing. No one believes me when I tell them the boys are only in the 10th percentile for weight. They do not look hungry and I have the grocery bills to prove it! 

P's 15 Month Stats:

Height: 31" (50%)
Head: 47.7 cm (50%)
Weight: 21# 4 oz (10%)

M's 15 Month Stats:

Height: 31 1/4" (50%)
Head: 48.2 cm (75%)
Weight: 21# 7 oz (10%)

Let's see...what's new. They are very fast. Running is preferred to walking. They know exactly what the word "no" means but choose to ignore it 99% of the time. And by "ignore", I mean smile really big and laugh when they hear it all while continuing to do exactly what they were asked not to do. This is all regardless of the tone or volume used to deliver the word "no". (It is impossible not to laugh at this point!)

They are getting taller every day. Note to self: never put the 'handle' style door knobs on doors. They're entirely too easy to open, even if you are only 2 feet tall. And thank goodness for the "lock" function on the fridge water/ice machine. If it wasn't for that we'd have a small lake in our kitchen. And the counters - oh the counters. They use to be safe. Not any more. The boys get up on their tippy toes, reach with their long little arms and stretch out their long little fingers and can reach just about anything. They find things that I would have sworn were safe/harmless and made them dangerous. If my life were a book right now, the title would be "Babyproofing: Redefined".

The fun continues!!!

The boys were in for their 1 year check-up this week. There were 10 needles involved – 5 each. I thought they might run out of band-aids after all of those needles. Mason did well with the shots – he cried but just a little. Prior was furious. I’m not sure I’ve ever seen him that upset. He went first and after his round of shots he did not take his eyes off the nurse for even a second. He even chimed in with some sympathy cries while his brother was being poked. Both boys were more than willing to show off their new “buh-bye” wave when the nurse left the room.

Thankfully Noi was able to go with me to the doctor. I’m not sure it would physically be possible to take twins to the doctor by myself!

Other than the needles it went well. The boys are about to break the 20# mark!

Here are just a few of the many things they are up to at 1 year. It is so cool to watch them learn new things every day.

  • walking

  • saying words that resemble: “mama, dadda, puppy, buh-bye, no-no”.

  • how to give hugs and kisses when asked

  • they love to drink out of real cups (with assistance of course). Once they take a drink they are extremely proud of themselves!

  • give “five”

  • “so big”

  • they know how to “check for fuzz” (some of you know what that means!!)

  • Their naps now usually includes several minutes of them each standing in the corners of their crib closest to each other and "talking" to each other before settling down and going to sleep.

  • signing "more"
