21 months

Late to the game, since Henry and Norah turned 22 months old on March 6, but I'm trying to squeeze in what they were up to last month. Here's a look back at 21 months:


  • Weighs 28 pounds and has gotten quite a bit taller since his 18-month checkup, judging by how his pants fit
  • Is back to his happy old self since getting his ear tubes on February 16 and smiles and giggles much more now
  • Loves to be chased around the house by Norah, Andrew or me
  • Hates to wear socks now and constantly pulls them off and carries them around the house (or hides them downstairs)
  • Has learned to climb up his changing table to grab things, which means climbing out of the crib will be next
  • Is obsessed with bananas and says NANA! whenever he sees one
  • Loves to open and close doors and gets mad if he doesn't get to close the basement door when we go upstairs
  • Is babbling up a storm now and saying "bobble" (bottle), "chee" (cheese), "please," "bye-bye, dada," "gaga" (cracker) and "sna" (snack)
  • Likes dancing to music in his crib and listening to the songs on Jake and the Never Land Pirates
  • Still loves books and has crumpled several Dr. Seuss books he's flipped through
  • Likes to play outside on his new slide or with the Cozy Coupe and becomes furious when he has to come back inside
  • Wears mainly 24-month clothes but still fits into 18-month pants and some 18-month shirts
  • Has strawberry-blonde curly hair that needs a trim (but I can't bring myself to cut it yet)
  • Weighs 23 pounds and is almost as tall as Henry
  • Wears mostly 18-month clothes but still wears some 12-month hoodies and pants
  • Loves to grab shoes and jackets when she knows we're going to go outside
  • Has unfortunately started to hit and shove us and Henry, so we're working on that
  • Loves all things girly, especially my necklaces, and really likes to play dress-up
  • Has become a really picky eater and is basically existing on PB&J sandwiches, bananas and cheese
  • Gets excited to go to nursery at church and play with the slide and doll strollers
  • Has really bad eczema on her face now, but we're working on it with a steroid cream
  • Loves to be chased around the house with Henry and sit on the ledge of the shower with him
  • Is talking a lot and trying to say "sorry," "amen," "cow" and "book" (among other words like "mama" and "dada")
  • Likes watching Jake with Henry and dancing to the music and says "Uh-oh!" immediately when the show ends and she doesn't hear music anymore
  • Is finally starting to get thick enough hair to wear a barrette in it but loves wearing headbands, too
  • Loves to "read" books to herself and flip through the pages and babble about what's happening
I just adore these two and feel so blessed to be their mom and watch them grow up together. Life is good.
