12 Months Old

I’m sure you will all forgive me, and I will forgive myself, for posting the boys’ 12 months post so late.  I’m just glad to get it posted at all.

This month the boys…

  • Eat only table food.  But, I feed them better than I feed us.  They eat fresh veggies and fruits, beans, etc. (Favorite treat is frozen grapes)
  • Drink whole milk and water from sippy cups.  No more bottles!
  • Wear size 4 diapers.
  • Wear size 18 month clothes.  They still wear some 12 month in pants.
  • Wear size 6 shoes.
  • Still don’t walk, but continue to cruise.  They will stand alone, some.  They walk holding just 1 finger (this is new news for Logan).  We’ll get there when we get there.
  • Still sleep all night.
  • Hate taking baths.  They don’t mind the water, but hate being washed.  They stand up and try to climb out of the tub.
  • Love going for rides in their wagon.
  • Enjoyed their first birthday party and liked their first taste of sweets: their cake!
  • Are hearing “no!” more than ever.  They have started yelling/grunting/screaming at me.  I’m trying to get that under control with stern “No!s” and tapping their mouths.  Mean old Mama!
  • Went to Abilene for the 2nd time and participated in some ACU Homecoming activities (parade, chapel).Fall 2010 012 Fall 2010 023 Fall 2010 033
  • Nathan intentionally drops food from his tray to feed Rollei.
  • They are playing with toys with more purpose, rather than just chewing, shaking, or pushing them.  They know where objects go to make the toy work.  They like to put mixing bowls on their heads.DROID 206
  • They are talking with more purposeful sounds rather than just babbling. 
  • Nathan tries to sing along with me sometimes.  He bounces (dances) and claps a lot.
  • They are total Mama’s boys.  They reach for, and cling to me over pretty much anyone else.
  • They usually still get 2 naps a day.
  • Logan had his first allergic reaction, probably to Penicillin.  He had polka dots for several days, but is back to normal now.Fall 2010 010
  • Logan likes to play the “Put my finger in your mouth, but you can’t catch me” game.  (He’ll put his finger real close, then move it away quickly when you pretend to bite.)
  • When they hear “Let’s go change diapers”, they stop what they’re doing and follow me into their bedroom.
