May 9, 2007

18 month check up was this week, although Nick is closer to 17 months old and Ben recently turned 19 months old.

Nick, actually closer to 17 months old.

Ben, recently turned 19 months old.

They have grown so much that they are barely fitting into their 18 month sized one-piece outfits now.

They are very into giving kisses now.

 When we put them to bed the other night, we were saying "night night" to them and Nick said "nii nii" back to us several times; another first.

One afternoon, Ben wanted me to pick him up while I was working in the kitchen. I could not pick him up right away so he sat down and started crying. Nick came in, looked at me, then at Ben. He walked over and sat down on the floor right next to Ben. He had brought a toy pig and a toy sheep with him and he started bouncing the toy pig across the floor in front of Ben. Then he sat it down in front of Ben. By this time, Ben had stopped crying and he picked up the toy pig and started bouncing it around like Nick had done. Then, Nick leaned over and gave Ben a kiss. And my heart melted all over the floor right there.

They have each grown over 2 inches in 3 months in three months.

Nick was only around the 3rd percentile for height and weight three months ago. He is now in the 25th percentile for weight and 50th for height.

These are my favorite PJ's. I think they look so cute in them.


This was "baby" dedication day at church.

They understand most of what we say to them these days and they repeat so many words, I have lost count of them all.

  One of yesterday's new words was "brother". Most of them are words that only a parent would understand right now though.

Glad you are posting again. The kids look great. I keep forgetting to ask the doctor to plot their info for me on the charts. I don't even know their head circ. I should get a tape measure and do it myself.
