20 months!

Our babies are 20 months now and I think it is safe to say there isn't a lot "baby" about them anymore.  They are two wild toddlers, we couldn't be more in love with.  We have definitely had some rocky months in the last 20, but I must say, I am really enjoying this stage!  We have our moments and are experiencing lots of toddler tantrums at times, but overall, they are a blast right now!  We are always laughing at them and are amazed at all the new things they are learning to do. 
They love playing with rocks right now (such boys, I know!).  This was actually a really good game, they would pile them up, then put them back, repeat, repeat!

Here's a little bit of what these two have been up to:
  • They just love those chairs. In fact, last week when we went back to Iowa and we were packing toys I told Keith we should just bring the chairs, it seems like it's the only thing they play with these days.  Especially Carter!
  • Even though it doesn't look like it, they are still picky eaters!  Monday they might like chicken, Tuesday they won't touch it!
  • A few favorite foods:  rice, watermelon, bananas, cheerios, turkey, spaghetti, pretzels, most fruits, gold fish (I actually can't think of anything else they like right now)
  • Foods they won't touch:  vegetables, breads, cheese, yogurt, really most things
  • Carter is really into jumping, though he rarely gets his feet off the ground
  • They are starting to talk so much more now, which is really fun.  They are repeating what we say quite a bit, which has reminded Keith to start watching what he says.
  • Yes, they still like those pacifiers. We are trying to not let them have them too much outside of nap/bedtime.  Sometimes they are pretty entertaining with them watching them take them from each other or whenever you tell Carter it is time to eat, he will take his out, chuck it across the room and run straight for his chair. 
  • They love going to Keith's truck, they fight me every time they get into their seats in my car. Probably b/c he has the DVD player.
  • They love books and singing songs.
  • They love watching Sprout, but we have been trying to limit TV, they are like zombies and won't pay a bit of attention to you when the TV is on and we barely see them enough the way it is to be ignored by them. 
  • They love playing outside and climbing on the swing set.
  • We have a lot of fun with them right now by putting fun stuff on them or giving them funny things and having them show Keith or me.
  • In the morning they will sprint into our bedroom giggling and wake me up.
  • Don't be surprised if you find they are just in diapers any time of the day- they hate getting dressed and are always taking their shirts off.
  • Carter is so into shoes, he will bring me and Keith our shoes all the time, he is always trying to put his on or take them off.
  • They love playing with doors (not my favorite), they are always opening and closing doors and saying "bye, bye".
  • Whenever they wear their sandals, they have ridiculously stinky feet!  My dad about fell over from the odor. 
  • They go to bed about 8:15ish and wake up around 6:30ish (usually earlier) and have one nap a day.
  • They are such little boys!  They have been into playing with cars & trucks more and push them around, sometimes making car sounds.
