How can it be? Today is a big day for two ‘lil girls, our twins are three!
These girls have truly changed our lives, keeping us on our toes ever since the day they were born. Both bring so much love and joy to our family, it’s hard to imagine that three years ago we had no idea what we were in for.
We’ve put together a Twin Parent Checklist – our take on the “essentials” for twin parents as you navigate through the first years as twin parents. If you’re a twin parent, check it out and tell us what you’d add!
Well. Here it is. The Twins’ 23 Months post. How have 23 months flown by? How is this our last “months” photo and post for our babies? Somehow, some way, it’s here. ()
Turning 23 months old was basically just like any other day in the twins’ life. Well, sort of. They slept in (a rarity). They carried oranges around for awhile (and told me so on the phone). They got their runny noses wiped approximately eleventy-hundred times (yay for the random sickness rounds that have hit our house). They ate cherry tomatoes and tater tots for dinner. They made us laugh and made us so ready for bedtime, too.
This post, The Picket Fence: Pittsburgh Baby Stores, is one such post.
Okay, we forgot to call me out for not posting that the twins are 21 months old? Hint, the answer is yinz all did. How did we let another month pass up? Next thing you know, these two will be off to college and this ‘lil blog will be a thing of the “ancient” past. But for real, there are only two more monthly posts for these baby milestones left, sigh.
It is so hard to believe that today is another milestone for the twins. 20 months have flown by.
Ava continues to shock us. Take that, failure to thrive. This girl is a thriver. In her 20 months, she’s probably ate more than Evan’s ate in his almost 6 years. She is sneaky and daring. Her words have become sentences. She’s so loving, even trying to cuddle with her little sister at night.
It’s hard to believe, but the twins turned 19 months old today.
Every time I see them walking, I am bugged out. They are so small yet so strong.
Speaking of small, their stats, according to Greg: Ava is in the 19th% in weight at 20lb 8.8oz. 9% for height at 30.5″ and 26% head. Isla is 6% weight and height at 19lb 1.5oz and 30.25″ and her big ol’ head is 67%.
On Friday, the Twins turned 17 months old (don’t worry, we’re still in denial over here, too). It was a whirlwind month with the girls amazing us more every day.
Ava started walking five days after turning 16 months old. That might have something to do with the whirlwind. We are now chasing them in two different directions. Baby proofing is officially vital. At play time she has had to go into isolation of her own playpen because she continued to bite Isla. Most recently, she’s put her pacifier to the side. It’s no longer attached to her day and night. She went four nights without it before uncovering it from under her crib mattress on Friday night (but promptly told it “night” on Saturday morning). Her favorite thing is “Number of the Day” from Sesame Street.
All it took was some encouragement and a blog post about her not walking, and she did it. Ava took her first steps on Sunday afternoon, so now we have got two walkers on our hands.
Look out, world. Here she comes!
Sixteen Months. No way, right? There is no way that the twins are sixteen months old today.
I mean, weren’t we just celebrating Sisters Day with them when they turned four months?
Oh. Well. I guess a year really has passed. That’s what happens when you are busy watching two ‘lil girls grow up.
When we realized that there was a photo of Greg and Arianna from July 2, 2010 that looked exactly like what a photo of Greg and Isla would look like, we decided to go to the zoo and grab another photo.
One, hasn’t Arianna grown up so (way too) much?
