18 Month Twin Update

The twins are a year and a half today!  The first thing that comes to my mind is, "we survived!"  Having twins is intensely difficult.  Everything is times two!  But having twins is also a huge blessing.  Henry and Hannah love each other and have so much fun together.  They truly care about one another! Today Henry ran into something (happens about 5 times a day) so he was crying and Hannah brought him a paci to cheer him up.  It was adorable!  Henry will also bring Hannah her favorite teddy bear, Pinkie, if she is upset.  It is so sweet to see them interact.  Don't get me wrong they also have their moments.  They will steal a toy from the other without hesitation and knock one another down to get to a desired item!  Nothing is as much fun as when your twin is playing with it!  They are also all about equality.  You can't give one a sippy cup without the other whining for one too!

Henry 18 Months

Hannah 18 Months

They are growing up so much.  We took the kids to the local park last week and everyone got to play.  Last summer and fall the twins had to suffer in the stroller while Cali ran around playing.  This time they were right there with her running around and climbing.

Henry's favorite things include: pacifiers (don't judge!), BALL, the dog, food, milk, playing outside and mommy (again don't judge!).

Hannah's favorite things include: any toy she can carry around, Pinkie the bear, marshmallows, milk, talking and playing by herself.

Food - They drink whole milk and water from sippy cups.  Hannah also enjoys juice boxes.  They eat three meals a day and get two snacks.  Favorite foods include: french toast sticks, pears, goldfish, chicken, green beans, pasta and veggie chips.  Henry can out eat Cali and Hannah remains reserved in her food choices. 
Sleep - The nap transition continues, somedays they nap twice and others it is only one.  They go to bed at 7:30pm and wake up around 7:30am.  
Clothes - Hannah is in 12 month some 18 month tops.  Henry is in 18 month clothes.  Both are in size 5 shoe.
Weight -  Hannah 21 lbs Henry 25 lbs  
Height - Hannah 30 inches Henry 32 inches  
Diapers - Pampers size 3
Health - Hannah has her first laser treatment for her hemangioma this month.  The doctor said it will look worse before it gets better and she will be mad as a hornet during the procedure.  Wish us luck!
Fun Facts - Henry has ten teeth and Hannah has twelve.  
Wagon rides are also very popular these days!  Hannah has a bubble wand and Henry has a stick.  They also like to switch sides mid-walk.
