My baby is 18 months...18 months
And because I love things like this, here are Ruby and Macey in the same dress on their first day of nursery.
tear. Love these sisters and can't believe how completely different they look.
Ruby is very social, busy, curious and opinionated.
She is non-stop.
She does not like to be contained and has figured how to get out of her high chair buckle and all straps on grocery carts. She doesn't like to keep her pj's on and has developed the lovely habit of removing them and her diaper while in her bed.
Baby (pretty much refers to anything she wants)
may mee (hold me)
CJ (refers to most animals)
Animal sounds: roar, quack, moo
he go (here you go)
climbing onto the table
playing outside with her friends & getting pulled in the wagon
eating anything she can find. she often steals the boys food the moment they leave it unattended.
emptying anything that she can find too
Ruby almost makes me want to have another baby, that's how awesome she is. ;)
This girl just keeps getting more and more fun.
When we are home she spends most of her time rolling, crawling, and scooting around the living room as happy as can be.
She loves to get over to the front door and chew on whatever shoes have been left there.
I was dreading the beginning mobile phase, but so far she has not choked and died, so we are counting that as a success.
It also helps that I throw away all Barbie shoes and Ninja Turtle weapons, the moment they enter the house. And Miles keeps an eagle eye on her, so he is usually the one to get the fruit snacks and things Crew has left behind out of her hand before they reach her mouth.
She's still in love with Miles and he eats it up.
He is still the first one to run over when she whines and he loves to read books to her.
Everyday I catch her doing a real crawl more and more. She pretty much can get wherever she wants to go with enough time and focus.
This month she learned how to get from her stomach to a sitting position too and it has made for much less whining while playing with her toys. I love it!
She graduated to sitting in the grocery cart at Costco.
Crew was the most excited though and told every single person
that stopped to talk to them how "This my Ruby, she a big girl. She my happy baby". It was hilarious.
He rode with his arm around her the whole time and kept patting her back. There were of course a few times I had to remind him to be soft, when his pats turned into hard hitting. Other than that it was quite successful. Much more than Crew and Miles' first time riding together in the costco cart. :)
Due to her mad skills at wiggling out of the Bumboo chair, she graduated to the real high chair this month.
She has yet to meet a baby food she doesn't like. She also loves gerber puffs and baby mum-mums. When I stop being lazy I will give her some real people food.
She still just has the 2 bottom teeth, but is working on the 4 top ones right now.
Ruby is also the least
cuddly baby I have ever had. She doesn't mind being held, just be prepared for lots of diving for the floor, food, toys, and anything else cool she spots while up there. She will not even consider falling asleep while being held, which is awesome for naps and bedtime, but not so great for 3 hour church.
Pretty much we are still obsessed, but who wouldn't be. :)
Our baby is looking and acting less and less like a baby.
And more and more like a typical crazy toddler.Some things to know about Crew at 18 months:
-He is obsessed with all idevices and has been known to get into my phone, even with the passcode on.
- He is very social and loves to get out of the house and go places. I often have people comment to me, as I am unloading the car, that it sounds like I have a dinosaur in there. Nope. It's just Crew, screaming out of excitement, ready to see what we are doing.
- His favorite things are balls, books, his blankets, and Miles' dinosaur toys. He also has developed a love for the Villain figurines in Macey's princess box. I often walk in on him growling and attacking while playing with Maleficent or Ursula.
He also likes guns and swords. Yep, he's pretty typical boy.
- He is better with silverware than the other 2 kids.
- He has also developed a love for the Dinosaur Museum and freaks out the moment we pull into the parking lot.
: ball, bye, up, ap (apple), ba-ba (drink), mom, dad, h-sound (holly), raf (blanket), thank you, peez, eyes animal noises
: T-Rex, anything else that growls, dog, duck
I am kind of obsessed with this noisy, happy, crazy boy. Not to mention his curly hair and long eyelashes. My new favorite thing he does...Run up, grab my legs, make a kissing noise, and then says "thank you" once he receives his kiss. Yep, he knows how to work the system. Helps to make up for the millions of messes he creates for me during a typical day.
8 Months Down
Nothing too exciting has been happening around here lately, except that Crew keeps growing. Here are some of Crew's recent happenings:
-He's been sick lately, but he is still just as mellow as ever. That is as long as someone is in his eye sight. Turn the corner and he'll start screaming at you.
- He just got his 3rd tooth.
- He has also turned into a thumb sucker, put him in his crib with a blanket and he goes right to sleep sucking that thumb. I know it will be annoying later, but I just think it's so cute right now.
-Miles still constantly informs us that he does not like Baby Crew, but he did give me some hope this week that his disdain won't last forever. He announced that when Crew is 2 he will go to Disneyland with him and take him on the Pirate Ride and that they will be friends then. Let's hope.
Crew is still our happy, mellow baby. He is starting to find his voice though and gets a little noisier everyday. He can't help but smile everytime he sees Macey and Miles, even if they don't give him the time of day. And he's at my favorite age where he can't move too far yet and is content to sit and play with his toys. Here is a post about Miles at 8 months, they really are looking so much alike.
We Made It!
