The girls turned 14 months on the 28th. Here's what they're up to:
Olivia has been walking good for about a month now. She can climb up on their slide, sit down, push off and slide down all by herself. She can climb onto the couch or a chair by herself and can get back down without assistance. Everything is "da-da". It's kind of her word for "doggie", but she calls birds, cats, people, whatever "da-da". Daddy is "da-da" too, but there is a subtle difference in her pronounciation. She also just started saying "up", for when she wants me to pick her up. At just under 20 lbs, she can STILL wear most 6-9 clothes, although most 12 month stuff fits her fine, too. Jeans or pants are usually huge but tops and stretchy-type pants fit ok.
Kayley has been walking since 11 months and now flat out runs a lot. Her new word is "ba", for "ball". She also can climb up on the couch or a chair and get back down by herself. I think she's just under 22 lbs. and wears 12 month clothing, although she can wear 18 months in tops ok.
They both love playing outside, just running in the grass, playing on their slide, riding in their wagon or playing in the rocks along the alley. Oh, and they love to go to the park. It's so great that we have a nice park so close.
If only they would start sleeping more at night. They only sleep about 9 1/2 hours, from 9:00 until 6:30, sometimes less. But they usually nap for about 3 hours, which is great, so I guess it's a trade off.
