18 Month Milestone

*Today our little munchkins are 18 months old!*
(Carissa at the park - she loves to swing and to explore around her)

Carissa, being the older twin by a mere 30 seconds is a fun loving tot.
What she loves:
  • her brother - she gives him kisses and pats him lovingly on the back
  • to be held - she's a mama's girl, but if mama isn't around she'll find other arms to hold her
  • her pacifier - she calls it a 'sah', but only gets it during nap/bed time
  • her baby - she loves to carry her baby around and cradle her to 'rock-a-bye-baby'
  • shoes - she loves all shoes and she's learning how to put them on herself
  • being outside - probably influenced by her brother

What she's doing:

  • walking - finally!
  • speaking lots of words - too many to count!
  • saying animal sounds - moo, baa, ruff ruff, meow, fish face
  • pointing to familiar objects in books
  • identifying parts of the body
  • feeding herself with a fork/spoon
  • scribbling w/ crayons
  • going pee in the potty - sometimes
(Caleb at the park - he loves going down the slide)

Caleb, the younger sibling, is a ham.
What he loves:
  • his sister, he likes to give her hugss
  • books, books, books
  • being outside - it doesn't matter if he is racing down the driveway or sidewalk, playing in the backyard, at the park, whatever - if its outside he's happy
  • his pacifier, blankie, and musical giraffe at night night time
  • watching Sesame Street while sitting in his little chair
  • going bye-bye. Caleb stands at the door leading out to our garage and says 'bye bye' over and over and over...
  • to be in control - when he doesn't get his way everyone knows it. WAH!
What he's doing:
  • running
  • speaking quite a few words
  • making animal sounds - moo, meow, ruff ruff
  • pointing out familiar objects in books
  • able to climb in and out of chairs
  • identifying parts of the body
  • feeding himself with a fork/spoon
  • scribbling w/ crayons
  • wrecking our house - Caleb is constantly getting into something. He has learned how to open the kitchen pantry, every drawer in the house, you name it-he can get in to it
