18 Months

Yesterday the twins were 18 months old.
We spent the morning on a playdate, our final playdate with the Princess Peas before they head north later this week. Hugs and kisses to you. We miss you!

This past month has been about going to visit Grandma and Grandpa, going to the zoo, playing in our fort (cardboard box), new backyard toys, wearing Daddy's cycling shoes, and all the while getting louder and more expressive.

The Bug seems to be quite interested in cars. I think his Papa would be proud. He has learned he can reach the handle on a real car, although he still hasn't figured out, or has the strength to pull it open. He's working on it. He likes to drive the golf cart and the little electric car at Grandma's. The Bee thinks they're too noisy. The Bug is a pretty happy guy unless you take something he wants. Then your ears may fall off.

The Bee continues in his theatrics. He is always making funny faces, and he loves to interact with people whether it's playing games or flirting with the lady at the grocery store. He is very observant about what is happening around him. He also seems to have quite an appreciation for music and has already started to bust some dance moves. Maybe he really is my child after all!

They both love playing in water and bathtime is always wet. For anyone within a 2 meter radius. I usually run the bath water when they are in their high chairs finishing dinner. As soon as I let them out, they run down the hall to get in the tub. One day I was not fast enough for The Bug and came around the corner just in time to see his legs up in the air as he tumbled in head first with all his clothes on! Oh, and a huge smile on his face.

They are loud and demanding, adorable and curious, screamy and giggly, and busy, exploring and happy. Well, except when they're not.
It feels like a milestone to reach 18months. My babies are really toddlers now. So grown up already!
