I feel like they have changed and grown SO much even since 16 months! They are seriously like little kids now and it blows my mind!
Their little personalities are so strong and different!
We recently transitioned into one nap and it's going pretty good. They are sleeping from 7pm-7:45am then go down for a nap about 12:30, after lunch. Ideally they sleep for 3 hours but sometimes it's 2-3.
They are eating pretty well, but I just added Fruity Pebbles and Kix and their tummy doesn't like one or the other. Still not doing gluten on a normal basis. If we are at a birthday party, special dinner, etc., they are getting bites here and there. It doesn't seem to bother them, so that will probably continue until we have the Celiac testing. I think Fruity Pebbles claims to be GF, but Kix does not, but it is corn flour. So, it concerns me a tad.
They are still loving fruit, but not veggies as much.
They are really trying to use their forks and spoons. I still love the Lobster high chairs that are clipped onto the island, but lately they've been using a booster, too. I talked about both here. I basically do this so they can watch one of their shows while I'm trying to prepare dinner or fold laundry.
They still LOVE them some Barney. They've also been watching some Shrek, Cars and the Color/Art Crew.
Sloane is chatting up a storm and mocking and Knox is talking, but not as often. I know he can, but Sloane is so dominant that he kind of does lots of listening. Though when I ask him to say mommy, he says daddy and smiles. He's not fooling us :)
Yesterday was actually their first morning to do the church nursery and they did well! Of course, as I mentioned, I've been a bit hesitant, but I knew it was time. So, first time for me to leave them without a family member. They cried for a second when they saw off walk out and a few seconds after, but then were fine. We get a pager in case they need us, so that makes me feel good.
Sloane is now requesting bow. "Bow" Bow" "Bow"...we hear it pretty consistently. Knox loves wearing baseball hats even though they are quite bit on him. He turns them backwards.
They went to the doctor a few weeks ago for a well check and Sloane was half a pound bigger and half an inch taller. We were shocked she wasn't weighing much more than him. She typically has been at least a pound, but after he had some sickies, he gained about two pounds in two weeks! So, when we went she was weighing 21 pounds and he was weighing 20.5 pounds
They are so fun and we love seeing them change and understand us more and more everyday! I snapped this picture Saturday and I think it's so cute :)
