21 Precious Months

21 Ways my princesses have amazed me in the last 1 month
  1. Composure: We went to visit friends and I gave Spice a piece of papaya that she did not want. Without being asked she took it, walked to the kitchen, located the trash can and threw it away
  2. Agility: Climbing out of their cribs. Can't help but wince-smile at that one
  3. Cleanliness: That's the positive spin I'm putting on Spice whipping off her diaper anytime it's wet or soiled
  4. Smartness: While wearing onesies with hearts on them, both girls tap on the hearts and say "I love you"
  5. Observations: I'm amazed at how the girls know the usage of certain things without being shown. They know that ear plugs go in the ear, gloves are for the hands and a flower clip (that we've never used before) goes on the hair.
  6. Imitation is the best form of flattery: We got 2 little bags for the girls (favors from a party) and Sugar likes to put her bag over her arm, say "ok bye bye", blow a kiss and walk to the nearest exit. I guess she's imitating me. I hope I look as graceful as she does doing it.
  7. If the shoe fits: Spice has been wearing my shoes. She can't pass by without putting them on and she walks quite well in them too if I may say so myself
  8. Politeness: The very polite shaking of the head when I offer them food that they don't want is .... well, my positive spin is that I prefer the head shake to the flinging angrily against the wall
  9. Meltdown, tantrum, whachumacallit: I experienced my first toddler tantrum this month and was seriously shocked speechless.
  10. Awareness: Sugar's 2 newest and most important words: "mine" and "why?"
  11. Genetics: Spice's newest and most important word, "sheshe". That means chicken by the way and yes, my baby loves her some fried chicken just like mommy does
  12. Nasal Skills: Both girls knowing to put their hands over their noses and forcefully blow out a boogie, THEN they can play with grab some tissues
  13. Stylin': Got some sunglasses from Gymboree and the girls love to wear them in the car. Till now, they've been ripping sunglasses off their faces so it's a step improvement (and helped them adjust to their car seats being front facing)
  14. Adventure: Being able to go up and down the big kid slide by themselves. Last month they couldn't and I had to hold their hands. Their gross motor skills are increasing in leaps and bounds (pun intended)
  15. Helpful: I'm now learning to assign them little tasks and they love helping out
  16. Restraint: Even though they can climb out of their crib, they haven't repeated the feat yet
  17. Gratitude: Mommy is happy that they are not climbing out of their crib because the air conditioning is broken and it's too hot for sleepsacks
  18. Number skills: Sugar can count up to ten and she can hold up her fingers for 1, 2 and 3.
  19. Cute overload: She does "2" with the index and middle fingers crossed. I think she can't figure out how to uncross them yet
  20. Musical skills: Spice is my little humming bird. She loves to sing and holds a tune very well. I've been able to identify a couple of songs she's humming
  21. Contentment: That's what I feel inside. Content, blessed and highly favored of God
Happy birthday my preciouses! Mommy gets impatient with you sometimes, but she wouldn't change you for the world.

  2. I am totally impressed with how well she is walking with your shoes on!! My Livvy is very similar...she does the shoes and the purse with the "bye bye" as she walks toward the front door =). And I agree, I hope I look that dignified! LOL!
    Bri is my little hummer/singer....and I totally dig it...
    Okay, and both of my girls have escaped out of the crib as well...but interestingly enough, only once. Hmmm....
    I LOVE being content!!!
    Thanks for the bloggy love by the way =).

  6. Loved reading this - so similar to what is happening at our house (we are 20 months today!) So -- looks like a lot of us have kids watching us leave with bags. Mine love the bag bye-bye too!! I keep telling my husband, as hard as this age is, it is finally hilarious and fun pay back for all the hard work of multiples! Such beautiful blessings you have!!
