18 months old!

Better late than never. The babies are growing every day in every way. They are so much fun to play with. Here are the stats:

Weight 22 pounds 2 ounces 20%
Height 31" 25%
Head - 45.5" 25%

Weight 20 pounds 13 ounces 3%
Height 30.25" 3%
Head - 47" 25%

Weight 20 pounds 10%
Height 30" 25%
Head 44.5 20%

Weight 19 pounds 7 ounces 3%
Height 29.75" 10%
Head - 46 25%

I cannot quite understand how they are in such a low percentile for weight given how much they eat! The babies are really starting to play together. They laugh together and chase each other. It is great to watch them interact. Even if they are not playing together, they are always looking to make sure the other is close.

Grady loves playing with his toys. His favorite toy is a balloon, any balloon. He is
very tough when it comes to falling around the house, but very scared when it comes to new people or places or the bathtub. Grady also enjoys putting his toys in his shirt and building towers with his mega blocks. When he is tired, he is crazy Grady and laughs and runs around like crazy. Grady is a mamma's boy.

Gwen loves attention. She wants you to play with her, or more specifically walk with her. She loves to walk and hold your hand. She frequently carries her purse around and wears my shoes. Gwen is going to be 100% girly girl. At night she cannot sleep without her blanket. I think she was a fish in her former life. After a bath mommy and the entire bathroom floor are soaked. Gwen is definitely a daddy's girl.

The babies are not saying too many words I can understand, but ramble quite a bit. They seem to understand everything we say to them. Grady and Gwen are giving us hugs and kisses now. Every time they give me a hug or a kiss it melts my heart. I could not love them anymore.

Here is our current schedule
7-7:30 - Wake up and eat breakfast
10:00 - snack
11:30 - lunch
12:45 - nap
2:45 - wake up (they are now starting to sleep even longer)
3:30 - snack
5:45 - dinner
8:00 - bedtime
