Happy 18 months!!!

18 months! Wow, this seems like another big milestone for the girls. Each month is a milestone but those birthdays and half birthdays seem a little more important. I'm looking back to pictures that were taken last Halloween and comparing them to now and I just can't believe how much the girls have grown in the last year.

Here were their pictures from last year:

I just love those bald heads. At the time I didn't realize how little hair they had. I always put bows on their heads to make sure they looked like little girls.

And again, here is now:

They sure have more hair but it grows in so strange with more in the back than in the front.

Some statistics on the girls.

Teeth: Addison: 8 Riley 12
Diapers: Disposable size 3's still. They will wear size 4's at night for extra protection
Food: They eat just about everything. They will try anything off our plates. The love yogurt, cheese, Mac N' Cheese, peas, and crackers.
Clothes: Size 18 months. Some things are still big and others are just right.
Shoes: They are between a size 5 and 6. Riley has a little bit bigger feet so she can wear the size 6's but Addison is closer to the size 5's.
Activities: Reading books, dancing to music, pushing toy lawn mower and vacuum around the house, talking, saying animal noises,shopping, and going to the park.
Words: Mama, Dada, Nana, grandma (sounds like g-ma), kitty, take this, uh-oh, no, ba-ba, and a few various other words.
Sleep: 10-12 hours through the night

We are so proud of our preemie girls that have caught up to their age group and give us so much joy. We are excited for their first year to actually trick or' treat and they have 2 parties to go to. I just pray that the next 6 months doesn't go by as fast. I can't fathom having them turn 2.


  1. Congrats!! Can't believe how much they have grown up in one short year!! Wow!!!!!

  2. Unbelievable that they are 18 months! They are so big already!
