After The Nuggets hit their 12 month/1 year mark, I kind stopped counting months. People ask how old they are and I kinda shrug and say, “a little over a year.” I’m going back to counting the months. At least until they’re 24 months/two. Why? Because so much still changes month to month with these babes. So this week, the boys are 15 months.
Weston has been throwing fits for about the last month. I mean, real fits. Throws himself down, scoots across the floor and yells. You know it’s unconditional love when I still find his actions cute. I have to try hard not to smile or laugh when he does it. He is still the “bully” out of the two. He steals all the toys from Corbin and has pushed his brother out of the way to get what he wants. Although, if Corbin tries to take his toys (rarely), Weston looks to us to help him. I think sharing is going to be a hard concept for Weston. He has eight teeth (4 top, 4 bottom). Still. We haven’t seen any movement on new teeth in at least 3 months. Weston is starting to use words. He says “night night” clear as a bell. There has been mama and dada for a while now. Dada is actually directed at Daddy most of the time, where as mama isn’t so much. When I walk in a room, I usually get dada as well. Weston runs now. He has really started to pick up the pace. It makes mommy nervous but it’s quite cute when he makes an incredibly wide turn. We are expanding our table food even more and trying new things often. He still seems to be a texture person and for the life of me, I cannot figure out why he doesn’t like pasta. He shovels bananas in like they might disappear from the table. Good news, eggs are in! Healthy proteins are a struggle for us.
Corbin is still the passive guy, most of the time. If Weston tries to steal a toy, Corbin just forfeits and walks away. Everyone once in a while, he holds his ground. He has his share of sassy for sure. When I tell him no or ask him to do something, I get a babble comment in return. Just the way he says the incomprehensible baby talk, I can tell it’s backtalk. He still has only six teeth (4 top, 2 bottom) but drools like a waterspout. Nonstop drool. He goes through about 3 bibs a day, completely soaking them. If he pulls the bib off (a favorite pastime), he will soak a shirt in about four minutes flat. If this was really a sign of teething, he would have all of his teeth by now. Corbin definitely mastered walking very quickly. He doesn’t seem any slower or wobblier than Weston, even though it took him 45 days longer to take those first steps. Corbin is a much slower eater and, if we aren’t careful, Weston will eat Corbin’s portion as well. He also is becoming very independent in the fact that he wants his bowl and spoon on his tray. He still needs quite a bit of assistance actually getting any of it into his mouth. They are both still sleeping great. Knock on wood. We are on a two nap – 9am and 1pm schedule and a bed time around 6:30p. Wake time is also usually around 6:30 which is a full 12 hour night. I’m sensing we could probably start to push their bedtime back to about 7:00 in order to spend more time with them in the evenings. 15 months of so much fun with these guys, it’s exciting to see what’s next. What I would really like to see in the near future, is a friendship to kindle between them.
