Took the girls to their well-baby checkups for 18 months old today. Harper weighed 19 lbs. 14 ounces; Hadley weighed 19 lbs. 11.5 ounces. They each had to get two immunization shots, but we are done with immunizations until they are four! Woohoo! They are very tiny and petite for their age, but otherwise they are healthy and happy. What a relief--we have two normal 18-month-old daughters!

I woke up this morning to the girls just laughing their heads off! They were tickling each other and laughing so hard. There's something I'll miss next week!

I'm going to miss almost all of Hunt's t-ball games this summer. I will catch the last two the last week of June. What else am I going to miss when I'm at school? Hadley's next tooth that JUST WON'T come through? Harper's next song she likes to sing? Oh, this is going to be a tough three weeks for mommy!

Both Harper and Hadley are really starting to put words together. It's starting to make sense, and I can understand it!!! It always amazes me when babies learn to talk! Some of the latest phrases:
-Hunter's shoes (and they WERE his shoes)
-hat! go outside! (they know they have to wear a hat to go outside, so they want a hat on)
-who is it? (when someone comes in the front door)
-Hello? (when talking on the play phone they have)
-drink sippy (sippy cup with milk in it)
-I have poop (and unfortunately for me, she did! They also have a "baby sign" to go with this one)

Hunter has assured me he will never become a dad. When asked why, he replied that he wasn't going to be a dad because he was never going to move to a different house. He's staying with his parents forever. I'm going to remind him of this when he's a teenager and hates us, our rules, and his present life. Right now, I'm just going to hug him and tell him he can stay for as long as he wants to!

My sick little boy (who's 5) was shrieking, "I need to wash my hands! I need to wash my hands!" When I finally got him to calm down enough to hear me ask why, he yelled, "Dad told me I have to wash my hands to get off the germs so I won't be sick. I don't want to throw up any more, so I HAVE to wash my hands!" He truly still believes that if I'd just let him wash his hands, he'd stop vomiting and be well...oh, so sad. My poor, sick baby boy!

Harper and Hadley are officially graduated out of the SoonerStart program! They are no longer considered "delayed" or developmentally behind. What a relief! They are both doing most things at 18 months (and they turn 18 months old tomorrow), so they have definitely caught up and progressed.
