19 months old (yesterday)...

In 5 months they'll be two. How does this happen? They're hilarious these days trying to imitate many of the things we do. Eli's particularly talented at imitating the things that Marcus does. Including saying, "ho, ho, ho" and showing his muscles while saying "argg".

Neither of them are talking much. They still pretty much say "hi" although they're both occasionally saying "mo" when they're signing more and Eli often tries to copy some of the sounds we make (not words just sounds). But they're understanding so much more these days.

The other morning after I had my endoscopy I wasn't suppose to really lean over and pick up things, so Emerson was my little helper. I asked her to pick up my book and give it to me and she did, then she gave me my jacket and got me my shoes.

Eli is similar in that he can understand and respond some of the basic requests we have for them. They're both still very affectionate, cuddly babies, giving us hugs and kisses all the time. Eating is still a pain around here. They don't eat much or seem to like anything and they still haven't mastered the sippy cup so they're still getting bottles despite our efforts using a variety of sippy cups. They just don't get it at all.

I love this age though it's my favorite.

Enjoying candy canes (which was a bribe to get them to sit still for a picture)

And Eli
