13 and 14 months

It's probably pretty obvious that I'm not really into blogging anymore and much prefer snapping photos and sharing memories through Instagram, but I do feel bad that I haven't been writing down everything Henry and Norah are doing over the past few months. Here's a quick catch-up (really just for them to read later):

  • Has four teeth on the bottom and two on the top now, which gives him the cutest grin
  • Probably weighs about 25 pounds (we'll find out next month for sure) and is about 31 inches tall
  • Can stand on his own for a few seconds but much prefers crawling still
  • Is growing more hair, and it's starting to look blonde (and is curling more in the back)
  • Loves to babble now and is saying dada, mama, bye-bye, baba and uh-huh
  • Still loves to crawl under everything, especially the piano and the table
  • Is a great eater until he's full, and then he flings food onto the floor (and for some reason does not like peaches)
  • Loves his new sippy cup and gets mad when we take it away
  • Remembers routines really well and has to slap the post when we get him out of the car and play with the chain on the door as we're leaving
  • Has the funniest giggle that bubbles from his chest and likes to shout "BABA" at us to get our attention
  • Is finally sleeping through the night (from 8 or 9 p.m. to 7 or 8 a.m.)
  • Loves to play with doors (and just shut one in Norah's face the other day)
  • Is wearing 12-month and 12-18 month clothes (and a few 18-month pieces)
  • Just hit a growth spurt and grew out of my favorite moccasins, so he's in 12-18 month now
  • Still loves bath time and gets excited when he hears the water running
  • Finally drinks out of a normal bottle nipple again instead of one we cut open

  • Has three teeth on top and two on the bottom
  • Likes to make hissy sounds while she's crawling around (or pushing her favorite toy phone around)
  • Started walking on July 23 and has been hesitantly taking steps before crawling again
  • Weighs about 20 pounds and is probably 30 inches tall
  • Is a daredevil and loves to use her walker as a ladder and throw pillows on the floor to stand on so she can climb onto the couch
  • Loves to feed herself cheese, hot dogs, fruit and crackers but doesn't like it when we try to feed her baby food pouches and tries to squeeze them
  • Is obsessed with teething necklaces and immediately puts them over her head when she finds them
  • Enjoys teasing Henry by holding his toys just out of reach or putting her hands on his tummy while he's lying down
  • Is wearing 9-month and 12-18 month clothes but still has tiny feet and wears 6-12 month moccasins
  • Loves drinking out of her sippy cup and refuses to let us hold bottles to feed her now
  • Says mama, dada, uh-oh and baba and babbles a lot
  • Is finally growing more hair, but it's very straight and still dark, unlike Henry's
  • Loves to shut and pound on doors with Henry
  • Still enjoys putting fibers in her mouth, especially the green ones from her old play mat
  • Is sleeping through the night and taking pretty good naps after crying for a few minutes in her crib
  • Refuses to keep headbands on, so she looks bald in every photo :)
They are growing so quickly and really defining their personalities, and it's fun to see how different they are, even as twins.
