Midweek Randoms

Here is what we've been up to!  Nick is a church camp this week so we have had the grandmas here to play with the kids so I can work.

1. Henry and bug bites do not get along.  If you notice Henry's right eye is puffy!  Stupid mosquito!  A little benadryl and he was good to go.   All bug bites puff up big on him.

2. Friday we had dinner with cousin Leigha!

3. Saturday was a sleepy at home day.  Daddy and Cali watching Curious George.

Henry and daddy watching cartoons.

4. We live close to a Tanger Outlet!  Not only is it great shopping but also a good playground and fun rides.  We put all 3 kids on the carousel.  They loved it and rode it twice. 

5. Sunday Hannah woke up in a cuddly mood and wanted to snuggle with Maw Maw.

6. Twin love!  This is what happens if you ask Henry to give Hannah hug.  SOOOO sweet!

20 Month Twin Update

It's time for your monthly twin update of cuteness!  And yes, I'm biased!  They are 110% toddlers now and go all the time!  Hannah is our thinker and doer.  Henry is the destroyer.  Hannah builds towers and Henry knocks them down.  Hannah colors pictures, Henry ripes up pictures.  Hannah sits quietly playing and Henry runs around the house.   They may be twins but they are two very different people.

Henry 20 Months

Hannah 20 Months

It continues to amaze me to watch them interact.  Hannah's favorite thing is her bear, Pinkie, and Henry loves his paci.  As soon as one of them starts crying the other searches the house for the crying twin's favorite item.  An example was when I put Henry in time out yesterday (he was throwing toys) and he was crying.  Hannah quickly comes around the corner, arm stretched out, with a paci for him.  My heart warmed at the sight!  I of course had to steer her away since he was in time out.

Food - They drink milk, water and juice from sippy cups.  Henry will eat anything and lots of it.  The boy isn't picky and he lets you know when he's hungry!   We are still keeping Hannah Gluten Free to see if it helps.  She is a picky girl so some meals are a challenge to find something for her to eat. 
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.  The two hour naps in the afternoons are a wonderful gift!
Clothes - Hannah is in 12 month and 18 month.  Henry is in 18 month clothes.  Hannah is in size 5 shoe and Henry just moved up to size 6. 
Weight -  Hannah 21 lbs Henry 26 lbs  
Height - Hannah 31 inches Henry 33 inches  
Diapers - Size 3
Health - Hannah had her second laser treatment on her lip to remove the redness from her hemangioma.  If you look at her now you can barely see anything!  Praise the Lord!
Fun Facts - Hannah loves Micky Mouse and would watch it all day if we let her.  Henry loves to play outside and will reach for whoever is closest to the door.
