His Bink is still his best buddy. He still loves jumping in his jumperoo, his toy ipad, the learning table, and the walker.
He loves the veggie/fruit combo pouches, anything fruit, having a harder time with veggies lately, and he's doing good on eating solids.
He is crawling everywhere and climbs up and under everything. He's my little monkey.
He has gotten much better at taking naps because I now have them napping in the same room together. He still sleeps good at night and we still have to wake him up in the mornings.
He army crawls but sometimes he pushes up on all fours. He walks with a walker and walks holding on to the furniture. He drinks from a sippy cup and feeds himself very well with finger foods. He has 2 teeth and one more on the way. He waves "bye bye" and claps and plays "patty cake". Oh, and he climbs the stairs (terrifies me!).
Words: Dada, Mama, Ball (sometimes), Gee Gee (my mom)
So funny. He smiles with his whole face and with a wide open mouth grin that shows off his teeth. He loves exploring and is becoming more daring and less cautious (resulting in more falls and head bumps). He still loves doing "crazy arms" and still growls all the time. And now he has come up a new grunting sound. He hates having his diaper changed and it turns into a wrestling match every time. He doesn't like sharing with his sister and takes away whatever she is playing with. He loves playing peek a boo and patty cake.

Her Moo Moo has jumped back to the top of the list recently. She holds on to it longer when we get her out of bed in the mornings and she plays with it while she falls asleep. Learning table, musical chair, walker, and Rudolph stuffed animal that sings "Rudolph the red nose reindeer".
She loves bananas and is very good at feeding them to herself.
Talking, laughing, playing with Connor and bath time. She loves playing peek a boo and patty cake and she loves her morning cartoons, particularly the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse and Chuggington.
Still a very good sleeper and napper and still VERY predictable and still wakes up at 6:00 am every morning!
She crawls everywhere and is super fast at it. She walks very good with the walker and is starting to act like she is ready to walk without it. She feeds herself and drinks from a sippy cup. She is also climbing the stairs.
Dada, Mama, uh oh, Ho Ho Ho, done
She mimics almost everything we say in her own way without actually saying the words. But after we finish a feeding we always say "All done" and do the sign for it, and I swear she now says "done"
after we say it.
She is still independent, but she wants to be held more than ever. In the middle of playing, she will crawl over to us and in our laps and want to cuddle or just watch Connor play. She even gives us kisses. She loves to watch what everyone is doing. She loves puppies and cartoons. She is so strong and seems fearless. Changing her diaper should be an Olympic event as well.
The babies are interacting more and more with each other as they get older.
They jabber to each other and make each other laugh all the time. They get excited to see each other in the mornings and are always touching each other.
For some reason Connor is always slapping the top of Chloe's head. It doesn't seem to bother her until he sticks a finger in her eye or something.
I was afraid that I would be chasing them around while they are going in opposite directions, but they pretty much follow each other around everywhere. I'm just hoping they learn to share one day!
