17 Month Twin Update

Henry and Hannah are 17 months old today!  Wow are they growing up so fast!  They are toddlers running around our house!  Henry continues to amaze us with his "boy" antics. The boy can climb onto almost anything we have, destroy most toys and eats more than Cali.  Hannah is starting to get more of a girl attitude these days.  She knows what she wants and quickly says "no" and shakes her head if she isn't on board.  She is also a very smart cookie and responds well to verbal commands.  The twins learned to color this past week.  Henry was happy for 5 seconds then wanted to eat the crayons.  Hannah sat there happily for 15 minutes coloring.

Outside is their favorite spot right now.  It doesn't matter if we are in our front yard playing, on our deck swinging or at a park - the twins just want to be outside.   They are also very confident in their abilities   They can both climb up the stairs at the playground, go down the slide and repeat the steps until they decide to pay somewhere else.

Everyone loves bubbles!

After dinner tonight the kids all had ice cream cones on the deck for dessert.  Cali's was the only one that actually had ice cream in it, the twins just love to eat the cones.  Here are some funny photos from the ice cream cone eating.

"Hey can I have yours too?" asks Henry.  Hannah quickly pulled it away and gave him a look!

Food - They drink whole milk and water from sippy cups.  They eat three meals a day and get two snacks.  Favorite foods include: french toast sticks, goldfish, chicken, green beans, pasta and veggie chips.  Henry will eat anything and lots of it while Hannah will eat a lot if she likes it.  
Sleep - The nap transition continues.  Hannah is ready for only one nap but Henry isn't and there is no way they are going to be on different schedules!  They go to bed at 7:30pm and wake up around 7:30am.  
Clothes - Hannah is in 12 month.  Henry is in some 12 month but mostly 18 month size.  Both in size 5 shoe.
Weight -  Hannah 21 lbs Henry 25 lbs  
Height - Hannah ___ inches Henry ___ inches  
Diapers - Pampers size 3
Health - Hannah's Hemangioma meds are going well.  We have two laser treatments scheduled for this summer to make the red color above her lip go away.  The Dr feels we will get good results.
Fun Facts - Henry has nine teeth and Hannah has eight.  Henry learned how to drink from a straw this week.  It looks like Hannah will be a lefty as she always favors her left hand to color or write.
