finley & landry {twelve-fourteen month recap}

Like my creative title? LoL! I haven't updated on the babies recently or well in two months so while they were napping and while I had some time I wanted to catch up on some blogging. They are doing so much and have changed so much since the last recap I feel like I don't even know where to begin really. 

finley marie
 at fourteen months:

{weight} you weight about 21 1/2lbs
{height} i have no clue but I'm guessing around 28" I could be way off on that too!
{diapers} size 4
{clothes} 12 mos and some 18 mos
{sleep} you are sleeping about 13 hours at night and taking a 3 hour nap during the day
{teeth} you have 10 teeth, including all 8 front teeth and two top molars
{food/milk/etc} you are drinking about 12-16 oz of whole milk. your favorite food right now is probably hot dogs or corn. But your ultimate favorite is still blueberries! You are eating 3-4 meals and 2-3 snacks. Sometimes our schedule gets messed up and I offer you an additional lunch or dinner meal
{sippie/cup} you are using either Tommee Tippiee straw sippie or drinking cup. We usually do the straw for juice/water and the drinking cup for milk. you love water and drink out of a plastic water bottle like a champ!
{walking} you are running!! EVERYWHERE! you absolutely love you new independence! you are extremely picky about the shoes you will wear. Little DIVA! haha I got you the cutest little pink converse and from the second they go on your feet you scream! Your favorite shoes are your pink rainbow flip flops. 
{talking} you are a chatter box. you talk non-stop and although most of it is un-reconizable you do have something things that we definitely understand. I may forget some but here we go, all done, i love you (which sounds like i ya ya, but you will repeat those some words every time we ask), dog, that, go, bye-bye, mama, dada, allie (our dog), juice, hi, shoe. Um, I know there are a couple more. You will sign 'all done.' It's funny because you think 'all done' and 'all gone' mean the same thing, so if something is 'all gone' you will sign 'all done' to me. 
{other stuff} you have what I feel like it the most amazing understanding on commands and such. For example, the other day I asked you to go get Landry's snack trap and take it to him. You walked across the kitchen got his trap and carried it all the way in the living room to him, without thinking twice. When we ask you to put something back or pick it up you understand and follow. You will close the door when we ask you to. When we ask you if your ready for a bath, you'll go to the bathroom door. When we ask if your ready for bed, you go round up your lovies (if your ready that is!). It just amazes me the stuff you understand. You have also starting pointing at EVERYTHING. If you want it, you point. If you want to watch tv, you point. If you want your milk, you point. If you don't know what something is but are curious, you point. Let me think what else. Oh, we turned your carseats around forward facing this weekend. I'll include that in my "week in review pics."

at fourteen months:



{weight} you weight about 20 1/2lbs
{height} i have no clue but I'm guessing around 29"
{diapers} size 4
{clothes} 12 mos and some of those can be baggy
{sleep} you are sleeping about 13 hours at night and taking a 3 hour nap during the day
{teeth} you have 7 teeth, including 4 front top teeth and three front bottom teeth
{food/milk/etc} you are drinking about 12-16 oz of whole milk. your favorite food right now is cheese eggs. I think you would eat them for every meal. You are eating 3-4 meals and 2-3 snacks. Sometimes our schedule gets messed up and I offer you an additional lunch or dinner meal
{sippie/cup} you are using either Tommee Tippiee straw sippie or drinking cup. We usually do the straw for juice/water and the drinking cup for milk. you love water and drink out of a plastic water bottle like a champ!
{walking} you are running!! EVERYWHERE! Although your not often as thrilled with your new independence as your sister is. Sometimes you'd just as soon be carried. 
{talking} you are a chatter box, too. you what I think is the sweetest little voice and way of saying things and talking. You say a lot of the same things as your sister but here is your list, all done, hey, dog, that, go, bye-bye, mama, dada, juice, shoe, down, ball, balloon (in your vocab it's pronounced 'booon'), papi. That's all I can think of for now for you. You will sign 'all done.' 
{other stuff} you also have a pretty amazing understanding of commands, too! Once of the most impressive things that you do I think is, we have Mickey book that has several dogs in it. When you ask you to get your book and show the dogs, you go find that book and can point out the dogs. Your a pointer, too. You have started to get a little bit of temper when you don't get your way and we've started to discipline for that so you understand what is the right way to act. Oh, you LOVE LOVE LOVE a balloon! The second we walk into the grocery store you look for the balloons because you know exactly where they are. We never leave the store without one (luckily our store gives out free ones to kids). 


You are truly growing into a little girl and boy and are not babies anymore. It amazes me from month to month what you both are doing and how fast you are changing. You are both such a job to be around! You both tend to have happy, free-loving, easy-going personalities. It's so hard to believe that we're starting to celebrate 'second' holidays now with you two in our lives. God could not have blessed me with two more perfect little babies!! I am so thankful for both of you!
