18 Months (about a week late)...

Want to see how big my babies are?
Emmy was saying "hi" to a dog figurine that we have sitting on a bookshelf

Emerson at 18 months:
*She's on a fruit eating kick. It's all she wants to eat
*She can sign more, all done, please, and thank you. However, she's incredibly stubborn and if she thinks we already knows what she wants she refuses to do the signs.
*She still just says "hi" although occasionally it does sound like she's trying to say "thank you" and "more" 
*She has two molars in addition to the 8 other teeth she already had
*She would run around naked all the time if we let her
*She's still a mama's girl
*She's a cuddle bug and often just walks up to me and Marcus and lays her head on our legs or shoulders
*She loves books
*She makes car noises when she drives her cars
*She knows where her nose, belly button and ears are
*She still can't drink from a sippy cup. But she likes to carry it around and tip it all the way back
*She loves music and constantly wants her music playing.
*She also loves to dance and will now dance on command
*She likes her socks on and brings them to us and then sits so we can put them on.
*She still adores all animals and stuffed animals. Piggy is still her favorite 
*she hates brushing her teeth and having her hair done
*She loves to dress up and brings her ladybug costume over to us so she can put it on
*She likes to do her "work" with her EI therapist. As soon as she comes in the house Emerson walks over and sits down so she can start
*She loves coloring


Eli & Emerson
18 Months

I love this picture because Eli is being Eli. He's so crazy these days. He actually gets hyper it's hilarious.

Eli at 18 months

*Still only has 6 teeth. 4 on top 2 on the bottom
* Can FINALLY eat food. Yay! He's now making up for lost time by shoving everything in his mouth. He loves to eat.
*Still hasn't mastered the sippy cup.
*Can sign more, please, thank you, and all done. If he hears these words he just does the sign
*Says "hi" and "dada"
*Dances on his blanket
*Never stops moving
*Screams really loud
*Is an expert at throwing tantrums. Oh my this is not good
*Loves, loves, shoes. All shoes his, my, Marcus, the lady next to us at the store
*Loves wearing hats, bonnets, and costumes 
*Gets hyper and does crazy things. It's hard to even describe but it's funny
*Loves to cuddle with his daddy
* Likes to dance to anything with a rhythm
*Carries his blanket everywhere, and always brings Emerson her blanket
*Steals Emerson's piggy, and now hides it behind his back
*Likes to walk backwards very slowly
*Climbs on everything (Including his train table)
*Smiles all the time
*Runs every where
*Beats his chest and says "ah, ah, aha" like Tarzan

I think that's the main gist of what they're up too these days. They're hilarious and keep us on the move and laughing.
