Today Audrey and David turned 21 months. 1 year and 9 months. 1 and 3/4 years old. In just 3 months, our toddlers will be 2. Today I am grateful for birthdays and growth and new developments. Today was an average Saturday: Tim got to play with the twins so I could run out and do a couple errands. I got to feed them lunch and put them down for a nap while Tim had to run out. Then, in the afternoon, we went to a local mall.
Lately, it seems like David has just exploded into about 2 new words a day. He will say something as a way to ask for it. Then, while we are trying to figure out what he is saying, he will then say (and sign) “Please.” Then he will excitedly nod his head yes constantly as if to say “Yes, you got it Mom! Now please get it for me.” I can’t help but laugh every time. Half the time we can’t figure it out, but every day he does this throughout the day.
Audrey’s vocabulary has gotten better in her own way. She adds new words daily, but she puts them together in complete sentences, like: “Audrey wants the flower cup of water.”
We’ve also made a great improvement in the twins’ toddler moods and transitions. I will save our method for another post, but it’s quite exciting to see a way that actually works.
21 months. So much has happened in those 21 months. I can’t believe how far we have come as parents and how far they have come as now toddlers.
We love you, Audrey and David. Happy birthday!
