They are learning their body parts and know and can point to their : eyes, nose, ears, mouth, tongue, hair, belly, toes, and Hadley's "pretty" bow.
In addition to their words at 16 months, you can see those here, she also says...
bow (only Hadley)
Mindy (a friend of mine)
They have perfected their "puppy" sound from a howl to an "arf"
Moo (our cat's name)
They have put two words together saying "Hi Moo"
They both received several molars this month and had a but of a hard time getting them in, just fussier than normal and not as interested in food at times.
Hadley: My sweetest girl. She is so spunky, joyful and full of life. She is usually very happy and easy going unless she isn't :) Sometimes she loves to have a dramatic moment, but overall she is very steady, calm and even keel. She giggles, scrunches her nose and her once unsteady walk is starting to develop into a precious run. Hadley right now is the bossy twin. She sometimes touches brother in the face when she isn't liking what he is doing and she has also been known to take his toys. I have also caught her many times, giving Jack Henry a toy he wants and being a very sweet little sharer. She has the cutest belly that sticks out when she prances around and she holds one arm out while she walks that makes this momma melt! She loves baby dolls and loves to give baby kisses.
She loves to play, run around on her "walker", walk outside, loves putting on her bow and shoes, and loves to dance and praise Jesus. She is such a girl and loves to help mommy. If I tell her to put something away or close something, she loves to proudly do as I say. If she doesn't want to do something she says '"nuh-nuh-nuh-nuh" which we have to tell her that is not acceptable and she has to do it! As frustrating as that is, I am thankful that this is all normal development. We praise her and clap for her when she obeys which she loves to receive. She is very social and neither her nor brother have ever been sad when we drop them off in the church's nursery each Sunday. She is very smart, right now is a momma's girl and this girl is my joy!
Jack Henry: PRECIOUS boy! This fella is just a ham. He throws more fits than sister and we are currently working on not crying or getting mad when asked to do something he doesn't want to do, most popularly, diaper changes. He LOVES his daddy and id definitely daddy's boy. When he is happy, he is happier than Hadley. He giggles, flirts, smiles and loves. When he is sad, he is sadder than Hadley. He has more extreme emotions and can be challenging at times but is momma's baby bear. I never knew how special a mom's love for her little boy could be. He LOVES to chatter and talk and is quite good at it! He says "Hi" every time he sees someone or enters the room. It is so adorable. He can now give kiss on the lips and is walking more "naturally" each day. He loves to dance whenever music comes on and he loves to "wrestle" with daddy. He shows little interest in babies or dolls like Hadley, loves to bang on things like he is making a beat, crash his cars and stomp around. While it is so funny to see what a boy he is, he is still a very sensitive guy. He says "mommy" when he wants "up" even if it's daddy he wants to hold him. He loves to explore, play and love. My precious boy, I love you!
