I now have toddlers. There is no denying it, but I'm still going to call them my babies. At some point, I'm sure that will change, but not quite yet. They are still my babies. At their last weigh in on 1/12/15, Ayden was 24 lbs, 10 oz and 30.75 inches tall. Rylee was 19 lbs, 10 oz and 28.5 inches tall. Ayden is exactly 5 lbs heavier and over 2 inches taller! He is still wearing size 4 diapers and mostly 12 month clothes, but some 18 month tops. Rylee is all over the board in sizes. She still fits some of her 3-6 month clothes, but also is wearing some 12 month items. I will never understand sizing in baby clothes. Ever. Rylee is wearing size 3 diapers.
They are both walking all over the place now, although they weren't taking more than a step on their actual birthday. It's amazing to see them toddling everywhere! Rylee walks a little bit like Frankenstein. She kind of rocks side to side with each step and has her shoulders raised. It's very adorable, if I do say so myself. Rylee claps ALL the time and waves. Ayden has started to clap a little, but he's pretty content to sit back and watch everyone else instead. They both now dance to music, which is really just bouncing up and down, but it's fun to watch them get excited. Ayden makes all sorts of sounds: mama, dada, baba, nana, yaya....but no actual words yet. Rylee says dada constantly. When I ask her to say mama, she says dada. That's pretty much what she says all day long. She has finally started to say yaya though, so at least there is another sound in her. And she says cheese, to go along with her cheesy face :) That's our first actual real word: cheese.
My mom came over on their birthday and went to their doctor appointment with us. Not very nice to have to get their 12 month shots actually ON their birthday. They still had a good day though. Here's the promised pics from the big day that my babies turned ONE:
|When your birthday is 2 days before Christmas, you get your presents wrapped in Christmas paper.|
|There's that cheesy smile! Roar!!!|
|Ayden just wanted to eat her shoe.|
|Yep. He's eating her shoe.|
|Rylee's says "See ya later!"|
|He has such a beautiful smile.|
|Best picture of the day.|
They got a zebra from Tony's parents! When you bounce up and down, the zebra moves forward. It's really cool. They'll have to wait a few years before they are actually big enough to operate it though!
They also got a car from them. However, it also has been put up for the time being, until Ayden can stop trying to eat EVERYTHING! He's quite the little beaver. He thinks the horn on this car is a teething toy, and it's too nice a car to have him chew the horn off already.
My mom got them these fun little bikes. They can ride them like a motorcycle, or they can convert into a walking push toy.
|There's that face again!|
