twins: 18 months

The twins turned 18 months on December 30! They have so much personality and this age has been really fun.

Eloise has been protesting naps, still throwing food to Poppy and is very dramatic and full of personality. She loves her hair bows, Poppy and her daddy. Meanwhile James loves to sleep! We have to wake him in the morning sometimes and from naps. He loves to cuddle which is so sweet. He is definitely a mamas boy. James also loves Poppy, possibly more than Eloise. It's so cute.

Favorite toys: They love their slide! They pretty much love all the new toys they got for Christmas. Especially their cozy coupes for outside. Eloise loves her Fisher Price little people, push toy, baby dolls and James loves his broom, vacuum and tools. They both love the bounce house they got as well!

Food: Both are getting pickier about eating. They used to eat just about everything! But now, not so much. Uncrustables, turkey, chicken nuggets are always favorites, along with cheese, yogurt, apple sauce, fruit or toast. We went through a phase where they only wanted cereal bars for breakfast, but now they're moving on. They love pancakes or cinnamon chip bread (from Great Harvest- it's a great!) or fruit and yogurt. James doesn't like mac n cheese (which makes me really wonder how he is my child) but Eloise loves it! Just like me.

One goal for myself is to take them to My Gym/Little Gym, story time at the library or toddler time at the trampoline park by myself. I can take them plenty of places alone, but have been scared to take them somewhere where they will be running around free with just me supervising. I'm so nervous I'll lose one or one will have a fit. I'm determined to do it soon!

I guess what I want to remember about this age is how cute and sweet they are. And so innocent. But I will also remember how feisty they can be, the pointless temper tantrums, the crying over nothing... so ready for them to understand a little bit better. But on the other hand I'm amazed by how much they know! They can listen and follow basic instructions, they know what we're saying. So much to look forward to this year with them!



  1. I can't believe they're already 18, well I guess 19 months now!! They're so cute!! Take them out by yourself, the first time will be tough but it will get easier and easier.
