The twins are 18 months old





13 months




Ava:

Weight and height: She weighs 21 lbs and 6 oz (30% percentile) and 32 in long (50% percentile)

Eating: She still drinks 4 sippy cups of whole milk at about 7-8 oz each. She gulps them down! She is still drinking every 4 hours, and eating 3 meals a day, snacks, and juice (mostly with water). She usually eats yogurt or banana for breakfast (or eggs, homemade whole wheat waffles or pancakes), and fruit/veggies with chicken for lunch/ dinner. She is little miss independent and only chooses to feed herself now. She makes a big mess, but she tries (and we try hard to feed her, but it will not happen). She will pretty much eat anything we give her! Does not prefer chicken nuggets, but home cooked meals. Anything with rice or spaghetti are her favorites.

Sleeping: She sleeps after from 730pm until 7am or so. She sleeps with Aiden, as their cribs are back to back in their room. We finally transitioned them to sleeping together at about 13 months. Both of them also nap together from 930-11am and 2-4pm. She usually is first to wake up, and we'll bring her out of the room to get Aiden sleep more. They are starting to play a lot more during the second nap so we might transition them to one nap soon.

Schedule: 730-8am 7-8 oz of whole milk
9am Fruit or yogurt and a little bit of apple juice and water
930-11am Nap
12pm Lunch (veggie, rice and chicken with fruit)
1230 pm 7-8 oz of whole milk
2-4pm Nap
4pm 7-8 oz of whole milk
6pm Dinner (anything we cook)
7pm Bath
715pm 7-8 oz of whole milk
730pm-7am Sleep

Clothes: She is wearing 18 month clothing and size 3 diapers. She wears a size 4.5 shoes.

Social: Loves to interact with others, but still cautious with strangers. Loves to play kitchen and cook, play baby and take her around in her stroller, cars, trains, and reading books. Can say about 60-70 words and puts 2-3 words together. (Daddy's hat, Daddy's agua (water, which is really his coffee), mama's shoes. Her favorite, "Aiden where are u?". We talk to her in Spanish but picks up on English from big brother, myself and B. She will imitate any word we tell her, but it takes her a few tries before adding it to her vocabulary.

Developmental: She walked at about 13 months, and is running now. And usually away from us! Can take off socks, shoes, pants. Feeds herself, scribbles, sings, dances. Can go up and down the stairs with assistance. Will have a conversation with us and we can make out most words. Can kick a ball. Tries to climb into chairs. Can sort shapes and works on puzzles.

Likes: Loves to play with girl toys (kitche, baby) and the boy ones too (balls, trains, cars). Loves to read, and will sit still to read books.

Health: Doing great. Had a little virus during Christmas break, but doing great.

Aiden:

Weight and height: He weighs 20 lbs and 30.5 in long. He's my little guy, but he's on the charts : ) at about 5% percentile for weight and height.

Eating: He still drinks 4 bottles (the only way he will drink milk and as little as he is, we go with it) of whole milk at about 7-8 oz each. He usually gulps them down! He is still drinking every 4 hours, and eating 3 meals a day, snacks, and juice (mostly with water). He usually eats yogurt or banana for breakfast (0r eggs, homemade whole wheat waffles or pancakes), and fruit/veggies with chicken for lunch/ dinner. He tries to feed himself but will let you help him. Does not prefer chicken nuggets, but home cooked meals. Anything with rice, bread or spaghetti are his favorites.

Sleeping: He sleeps after from 730pm until 7am or so. He sleeps with Ava, as their cribs are back to back in their room. We finally transitioned them to sleeping together at about 13 months. Both of them also nap together from 930-11am and 2-4pm. He usually is my little sleeper and will let him sleep more by himself. They are starting to play a lot more during the second nap so we might transition them to one nap soon.

Developmental: Started walking at about 13.5 months and is running now. He is learning to write on paper with a pencil. I keep crayons and markers away as they both try to eat them! He throws balls (and kick), or anything in his hand, really. He can go up and down the stairs but we have to watch him because he will leap. He can sort shapes and fill containers with toys. And loves to put the top back on everything.


Likes: Music and dancing. Hanging out with Abuelito (my dad). Reading. Singing.

Health: He is my healthy one. We call little, but mighty.
