17 months and playing Catch up!

Sorry I have been in a serious blogging funk lately!!! I don't know why, just too tired at the end of the day! Going to try to catch back up!

The girls turned 17 months old today! Crazy how fast this second year is going. I think faster than the first! The girls are more and more fun on one hand and on the other harder and harder!

The pictures are from our first bath in their newly remodeled bathroom! The girls have been using the baby tub till this month. (good thing the girls have stayed small!) We only have a shower in our master so that was our only option! They LOVE it, and it is so nice to have all that room.
Kinley
Weighs around 18 pounds

WALKING, and walking faster everyday! She is pretty good at the whole walking thing. She stumbles from time to time but just gets up and keeps going! She does this walking in place thing all of the sudden that is so funny!

wears 3-6 clothes but moving up to mostly 6-9 except for pants and shorts. The skinny girls wear a few newborn shorts, mostly 0-3 months though.

wearing 2-3 Pampers swaddlers

finally moved up to most size 3 shoes

Talks all the time. Repeats a lot! Says, ball, baby, mama, mimi, poppy, we are working on Grandma, ando (uncle andrew), sissy, dada, thankdo (thank you), jump, night night, no ma'am, uh oh.

Does the hand motions for itsy bitsy spider

She gives kisses.

Having a VERY hard time going to sleep at night. Never been a problem till just recently.

Cutting molars


Madelyn
weighs around 18 pounds too

WALKING!!! She is pretty good considering she has only been walking about a month

wears 3-6 and 6-9 and same size shorts as Kinley

wears 2-3 Pampers swaddlers

still in size two shoes. The girl has seriously tiny feet.

Isn't talking really, although she does say uh oh. Both girls are in Speech therapy.

Knows the motions for Itsy bitsy spider (and wants you to sing it all day)

She also gives kisses.

I picked out this seriously yellow paint. That is why the picture is so yellow

The knobs are so easy for the girls to turn, we are going to have to get new ones again.

We are enjoying our summer and getting out of the house to play! We met the Owen girls one day for some lunch and shopping! It was so great!!! We did catch lots of attention with two sets of twins!
We should have taken a picture in the beginning because all four girls were DONE!

Agree... it's FLYING by so much faster! I gasped when you mentioned sleeping issues! Oh no! I hope that's not our future, too! Love the new bathroom!

BTW: Y'all really need to come see us up here! I've never heard of the Tarrants being scared of a little road trip ;)

I agree that get more fun but also much harder as they get older. Just wait until potty training... Kinley looks so old in that first pic! They are just so cute!

Time flying by, don't even get me started. I'm still trying to process the fact that B&B are 18 months old. I think K,M, and Burkley could pass for triplets because of their size!!!

Your girls are so precious. I can relate so much to you through your blog. I also have little teeny tiny girlies.
