Happy 80th Birthday (Great) Grandpa!

Today Harper and Keegan's Great Grandpa turns 80!  I tried to get a cute picture of them holding a Happy Birthday sign while sitting in the chairs he made them but apparently getting a picture of two 18 month old kiddos is impossible. Most of the pictures consisted of Harper carrying her chair all over the yard while Keegan just sat there.

Happy 80th Birthday Grandpa! We love and miss you!

18 months / 1.5 Years

I'm finally getting around to Harper and Keegan's 18 month post even though they turned 18 months 2 weeks ago. They are officially 1.5 years old. Is now when I should stop referring to them in months? It makes them seem so old to say they are a year and a half old.

When Mimi was here they had their 18 month checkup on Friday, April 18. Typically when they call us back to the checkup room, the nurse says to strip them each down to their diaper and then we will take their diaper off when we lay them down on the scale.  This time they called us back and asked us to remove their shoes so they could stand on the scale... on the big person scale like a big kid! ::Cue the tears:: I don't know why but it made me so sad. They aren't babies anymore. They're toddlers. 


Weight: 24.6 lbs (25th percentile)
Height: 33.25 in (75th percentile)
Head: 45 cm
Teeth: 16 (all but his 2 year molars!)
Words He Says: Boo (as in Peek-a-boo), ba (ball), Momma, Dada, Hot, Dog (every animal is a dog to him!), Bye-Bye, Hi, Ni-Ni (Night-Night), Out, Up, No, Nana (banana), probably a few more but I can't think of them.
Favorite Foods: All things ending in berry (Raspberries, Strawberries, Blueberries, Blackberries), Animal Crackers, Ground Beef, Turkey Dogs, Mac n' Cheese, Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches, Pretzels

Favorite Things: TV, Frozen, kitchen utensils, music, dancing, being outside, books

A few things he can do... 

  • correctly identify most of the time several body parts (belly, toes/feet, head, ears, nose, mouth)
  • throw a ball (or anything really) like a champ
  • catch a ball bounced to him if he is sitting down
  • hit really hard  (this is not a good thing!)
  • swipe open my iPhone and make a phone call (Thank you Jen for answering!)
  • get water from the door on the fridge

Weight: 24 lbs (50th percentile)
Height: 33 in (90th percentile)
Head: 45 cm 
Teeth: 12 but I think a few more are starting to pop through
Words She Says: Boo (as in Peek-a-boo), Momma, Dada, Ni-Ni (Night Night), Up, Book, Out, Go! (as in wave her finger at Squeegee and yell go!), No, Nana (banana), cheese, shoes, probably a few more but I can't think of them.
Favorite Foods: All things ending in berry (Raspberries, Strawberries, Blueberries, Blackberries), Animal Crackers, Banana, String Cheese, Pasta, Turkey Dogs, Mac n' Cheese, Peanut Butter & Jelly Sandwiches, Cuties

Favorite Things: MegaBloks, music, dancing (LOVES to dance!), being outside, books

A few things she can do... 

  • correctly identify most of the time several body parts (belly, toes/feet, head, ears, nose, mouth)
  • catch a ball bounced to her if she is sitting down
  • open the container of animal crackers
  • whistle (I mean, some adults can't even do that!)
  • stack LOTS of MegaBloks

Harper and Keegan - how are you a year and a half old?!

Weekend Recap | Easter Weekend

I'm a little behind on my blogging so I'm just now getting around to recapping Easter weekend!

Mimi came to visit us for Easter weekend! Harper and Keegan even got to stay up a little late to pick her up at the airport Thursday evening!

Friday morning we started the day at the pediatricians office for Harper and Keegan's 18 month checkup! The pediatrician probably thinks she is always visiting since she also went with us to their 12 month checkup. I plan on getting their 18 month post up soon!

We were all a little sick while she was here but it actually worked out okay. I was able to go to the doctor once we got back from the pediatrician's office while Mimi fed Harper and Keegan lunch. Had she not been here, I probably wouldn't have gone to doctor even though I definitely needed to.

After the doctor I picked up my prescription (stupid sinus infection!) and the kids medicine (they'd been batting head stuff for a few weeks and Harper had an ear infection), I headed back home to take a nap!

Later that afternoon we headed to the nature park for a walk! Harper barely napped that afternoon so she was zonked out during our walk!

Saturday consisted of playing in the backyard, Mimi pushing Harper around in her car, and going to the playground!

We attempted to take some traditional Bluebonnet pictures but it was a complete fail. Keegan wasn't really into it and Harper was not having it one bit.

Unfortunately Mimi had to leave early Sunday afternoon but we made the most of the morning!

We were very sad to see Mimi go but are already looking forward to seeing Gramps in a few weeks!

Love you Mimi! Thanks for coming to visit us!
