19 months old … more than a year and a half now. And each month is getting harder and harder to capture – these are more like snapshots than portraits, but hopefully you enjoy them anyway.
At 19 months:
*Kit-kat has 10 teeth and C-boo has 9.5 teeth. They each have 2 molars. Ooh!!
*C-boo is either precocious or diabolical. I haven’t figured out which one yet, but she is an interesting and manipulative little creature
*Kit-kat continues to be my baby, with a very sensitive soul
*They love, love, LOVE to watch Finding Nemo. They get into physical altercations over the Nemo diaper wipes box. They stand at the blank TV, asking pitifully for “Momo??”
*They love to read:
*They are still sleeping through the nights, going “Nigh-nigh!” at 7pm and usually getting up between 6am and 7am
*They are getting very good at trying to dress themselves – they can put their shoes/boots on and they can get a leg into each pant leg but have trouble pulling them up! They are obsessed with shoes and socks (“Soose & gocks”)
*They have started using short sentences now – mainly, “Dada go work?” and “Dada go bye-bye?”, but also “Bye-bye _____”
*They are very interested in potty training now, and tell you all the time what they’ve done; they also will follow you into the bathroom to say bye-bye to whatever you’ve just done. Gross. But Momma is too tired right now to put the effort into potty training. Maybe in November…
*Kit-kat has resurrected an old NICU soother that we found while we were unpacking, and she calls it her “baby sucky”
*Every child is a “baby” to them
*They miss their Dada an awful lot, but they are adjusting well. Every truck is “Dada truck?” and they go running into our bedroom each morning only to be disappointed
But they talk to him on the phone every day and send him lots of photos.
*They give each other sister-kisses:
*Actually, C-boo is a master kisser, complete with puckered lips. I love it, because I really can’t stand slobbery toddler kisses. She has such prim little kisses.
_uacct = “UA-4888259-1″;
*Kit-kat is more of a hugger
*They chase each other around and around, and into corners where they “ticka-ticka-ticka” each other!!
*They went for their 18-month shots and 18-month check up, and they are right on track for their real age – that’s right! We no longer have to follow their adjusted curve
*C-boo is 20.5 lb; Kit-kat is 21.5 lb. I love that they have maintained their 1-pound difference their entire lives!!!
*They have waaay too many words to count. Way too many.
*They are learning their animals and can recognize/say dog, kitten, cow, pig, duck, lamb, monkey, hippo, fish, and a few others. They also can do the sounds for dog, cat, cow, pig and duck!
*They had their first weekend sleepover with Gramma & Grampa when Leith & I went to Victoria, and they did very well. I am thinking of converting their cribs to toddler beds soon.
That’s all I can think of for now! See you again at 20 months!
