A lot of :mommy: bloggers do milestone posts for their kiddo's. I'm going to double up since Jubilee didn't get an 18 month one and is now 19 months. I know these may not be as much fun to read unless you are obsessed with the children making milestones... but not only am I obsessed with these two I also have a terrible memory so I'm doing it.
Asaph :: 3 Months
Wears 6m and weighs about 20lbs
Nurses on demand...a lot. And on that note he knows who feeds him - he's a total mama's boy for now.
Sleeps a 4-6 hour chunk but then nurses on and off for the rest of the night. Naps when and where he wants.
Blows bubbles and drools like crazy soaking anything in his path.
Loves his thumb, he sucks it with all other fingers straight instead of curled which results in a lot of eye poking. For some reason though, he won't do it in the car so we switch to the pacifier because he likes to suck on something while he falls asleep, and Isaiah can't handle the crying (not that I'm dancing jigs about it).
Smiles, oh how he smiles, just looking his way can produce one and melt your heart (such a difference from his sister Jubilee who was nothing like her name for the first 6+ months of her life).
Laughed for the first time for his Nana. Warning: his smiles make your heart melt but his giggles make your heart explode - really!
Jubilee :: 19 months
Wears 2T and weighs about 30lbs
Sleeps 10-12 hours a night, takes one 1-2 hour nap.
Milk is her favorite food, she drinks 1-2 gallons of raw milk a week.
Talks all.the.time. Will repeat pretty much anything.
Thinks she is a big girl and wants to copy-cat everything her big girl sister does, whom she thinks is the greatest.
Loves, LOVES her father, when he comes home from work she'll squeal "Papa" and run to his waiting arms.
Aunt Kris is still her next favorite outside of immediate family. Grandpa is up there too.
Brings me the phone saying "Om, Om" to call Oma almost everyday.
Tells me when she needs to use the toilet about 30-40% of the time, her reward when she goes is to wash her hands, she thinks it's the best.
Is very maternal, loves taking care of babies real or dolls, worries when someone cries or gets hurt and will ask "kay? kay?" till she knows they are ok.
Favorite book is Goodnight Moon, she wants to read it over and over and over. When she reads to herself she'll point to letters and say "I, E, O" etc. without matching the sound with the letter.
Curious, independent and unafraid. Bad combination. Makes life an interesting challenge.
Throws mean tantrums, complete with throwing herself down and flailing limbs.
Is finally growing into her name, she brings joy to everyone she comes into contact with.
