Where do I even start... these two beautiful girls have been changing so much that I can hardly keep up! At their 9 month appointment Evy wasn't crawling yet and the doctor was concerned about her huge head. She ended up getting a CT scan and everything was just fine... just a huge head! It seems that right after that appointment she started army crawling and then full on crawling. She is right there with Charlotte now and you would never know that Char has been crawling for almost 2 months longer.
The girls love to "explore" the living room that they pretty much have taken over. They love to pull up on everything and cruise along the furniture. They are also all about getting into everything that they shouldn't like the dog's kennel and his food. If the kennel is open and the dog isn't in it, they get in and play with his toys. The living room is FULL of toys for them and they want the dog's toys.... strange girls!
One of Evy's favorite things to do is push her toys around the living room. They have these table like toys that make sound, etc and Evy will stand up and push the whole thing around the living room. I even caught her pushing the entire pack n play around the other day. It was hilarious! Charlotte has been into the leggos lately. They have a tallish basket that they are in and she likes to pull them out and throw them on the floor... oh and I can't forget chew on them. She chews on everything! She likes to chew on her own toes and has been known to try and lick and/or bite my toes and then proceed to give me a huge smile. Toes must taste good?? Charlotte also likes to take her diaper off at night. During the summer the girls slept in a onesie or a diaper so that they didn't get too hot. Well, one morning I found Charlotte in her birthday suit when she should have had a diaper on. Silly girl!
Both of the girls are still saying mama and dada. I'm pretty sure they have said "hi" and Brian thinks he heard one of the girls say "Urza" (the dog) as well.
Oh, and I know that I posted this yesterday, but Evy took her first steps unassisted!!! I thought it would be her sister that would walk first! Who knew! Charlotte will stand all by herself and Evy really won't. As soon as Charlotte figures out that she's standing by herself she gets scared and sits down :) (As of their birthday, Charlotte is walking too!!!)
They are wearing a few 12 month clothes, but mostly 18 month clothes. Charlotte still wears size 3 diapers and Evy is in a size 4. They still drink most of their milk out of bottles but are quickly getting the hang of the sippy cups. We tried a couple different ones and the Nuby soft silicone ones were the winners.
Both girls are getting teeth like crazy. Charlotte only had 2 teeth until she was about 11 months and then she got 3 on the top!! A 3rd one on the bottom popped in last week (12 months) as well. Evy is up to 9 teeth!! She has her top 4, bottom 4 and one molar! Another molar is ready to pop through any day now... it is bulging under her gums at the moment.
Both girls still love to play with the doggie and the kitty. They are so tolerant of the girls.... I think the kitty just likes when anybody is petting her (including the girls pulling her fur out.)
What? Am I not supposed to play with the doggie's toys?? - Evy
