1 & 1/3 Years

Haha... 16 months really, I just thought I'd change it up a bit :)

Caden, Kellan, Garren

Well we are back to time flying by!!! We've had a lot of change and progress this month, we are all moved in & settled in our new home, we have THREE walkers now that also now have free range of the living areas & their bedroom (which they are only interested in for the closet.) we are working on going down to one nap, some days all three boys can handle it, some days none of them can handle it. It's a work in progress...

 Caden, Garren, Kellan

A great thing about the boys walking is they love to go on their own to where I need them, they each know which high chair is theirs & which crib to go to for naps. Things I never knew they knew because I was picking them up & carrying them.


The boys are all getting very very big! We haven't had them in for a well visit here yet but we had Caden at the doctor Friday & he weighed 27 pounds!!! He is the middle man right now, so I'm pretty sure Kellan is pushing 30 pounds & Garren is probably around 25 pounds. Caden was 31.25 inches & I think he is the tallest of the 3.

I forgot to post a tooth count last month. Garren had 2 front on top & 2 front on bottom along with 2 molars, one on each side of the top. He has added 2 more to the top front. Last month Kellan was still at 4 front top & 3 front bottom, he has added 1 molar on the top left. Caden has had 4 front on top & 4 front on the bottom & has not had anything new pop through this month.


The boys still say a lot of the same words. They have added doe! (no,) ge oun (get down,) & aahee (Haddie) to their vocabulary (can you tell Haddie has a few more limitations now, lol) I'm sure there are things they say that I can't think of right now. They talk to each other constantly, in their own language of course. They must talk about some pretty funny stuff though, because they usually end all their conversations in laughter. They sign a lot of new stuff too. "Shoe" was kind of surprising since they don't really wear shoes quite regularly yet. "Ouch" or "hurt" is a new one too, they don't say where yet but its generally their teeth these days. They all sign "more" & "all done" & of course "milk" & "eat." "Dog," "hat," & "car" are frequent signs too.

Garren not only mimics what we say now, he mimics what we do! So I have to be very careful not to throw a treat to the pups because Garren wants to throw all kinds of food to them, lol. If we pat on the pups, Garren ends up hitting them. If I don't want them to learn to do something I have to disguise what or how I'm doing it. They are all trying to open doors & Garren spends a lot of time trying to figure out the kitchen gate.

Surprisingly as mobile as they are now, they also like to cuddle more, which makes our hearts melt. There is nothing more rewarding then your baby walking up to you with arms open, wanting to give you a hug or sit in your lap.

It's hard to believe we are already picking out Halloween costumes & thinking about the Holidays, but it is exciting to know we will be with all of our friends & family throughout the Holidays this year, maybe Donna will even be able to have her cooking baking weekend again. I know a few people that would love some of her homemade molasses cookies :)


  1. What a bunch of little cuddle bugs! It seems like they are changing and growing so much right now. How exciting :)

  2. They are so cute, I'm glad I found your blog. I cloth diaper also, too cool!

    1. What kind do you use? I have rump a Roos, bum genius, & grovia. I am addicted to them & have been thinking about trying some new ones (mostly for new colors or patterns) :o)

    2. I am so tempted to buy more too, it's an addiction, I swear! We mostly use Fuzzibunz and Charlie Banana on the younger set. The toddlers are in Bum Genius AIO most of the time, with occasional prefolds. So not too many cute prints :(

    3. We use mostly Bum genius and prefolds on the toddlers. fuzzi bunz and charlie bananas on the babies. I have a few cute prints (some RaR among them) you're right, it's hard to resist buying more.
