15 months.






she was upset that he didn't want a kiss


he was upset that she wouldn't let him pull her hair


15 month stats:

29 3/4 inches tall putting him at 15%
22 lbs. putting him at 25%

He's catching up in weight a little bit, but not so much on height. I guess they both take after me.

30 inches tall putting her at 40%
24 lb. 4 oz. putting her at 75%

I was very surprised to see that she is taller than him.

Well... let's see. 15 months. Alot has changed since I quit doing the monthly posts at 12 months!!

I have weaned the twins off nursing and off the bottle. They have been without for probably 2-3 weeks now. Sometimes they still try to rip my shirt down to nurse, (like right in the middle of ECFE group time for example) but for the most part, they are doing well with it. I however, have had my sad moments knowing they are through that stage of their life. I miss that time with each of them. I could have nursed longer but with my heart issues I need to try a new medication that I cannot use while nursing. I am proud to say though, that I nursed twins for 14+ months!

They are both very mobile toddlers these days. Finley walks, and Scout runs! They have begun to climb on everything. I caught Finley in the craft room like this the other day:


Don't worry, I didn't leave him up there so I could rush to get the camera and take his picture. I walked in with it in my hand.

Their vocabulary has grown by....maybe like 2 words. Scout now says "buh bye" and Fin says "no" (as of today apparently). "uh oh" is still the most frequently used word from them though, well besides mama. mama. mama. MAMA. MAAAAMAAAAA. repeatedly of course.

And the biggest and best change of all...... drum roll please...



They sleep THROUGH the night! Consistently. Every. Night.

I had forgotten what it was like to get a full nights' sleep! But damn, is it lovely!

(Although these past few days that have not slept well, because they are sick. High fevers, double ear infection for Scout, and one ear for Finley. Along with coughing, congestion and yucky noses.)

But hopefully they will be back to their happy selves once these antibiotics start working. :)
