19 Months

The last of the teens for a while :-( Not much has changed in the past month, but we have had a few more teeth poking through.

Henry 19 Henry
* Weighing in at 32.2 lbs {according to 18 month check up} and 32 1/2” tall
*Loves to chase you, run in circles around you, loves to spin himself around and around, until he’s falling down dizzy.
*Lots of Mama, Dada, Baba, Bubble, PopPaul, Do {dog}, Da-du {thank you} and AMEN! after we say grace
*Doing really well in swimming lessons: He doesn’t LOVE the water, but he’s willing to tolerate it and be happy splashing for a while.





James 19 James
*Weighing in at 32 lbs and 36 1/2” tall
*Loves to wrestle with his siblings, even if they don’t like it at all. He does exactly what his Daddy did in wrestling…gets them down and then stretches himself out on them.
*Sticking with Mama, Dada, Baba….and a variation of amen.
*Has lots of teeth working
*LOVES, LOVES swimming lessons. He much prefers to have his swimmies on though and be able to go about on his own. He doesn’t care too much for being held.





Elanor 19 Elanor
*Weighing in at 24 lbs and 31 3/4” tall
*More and more she’s following Jamie’s lead…usually getting herself into trouble {standing on top of the piano for one}, but it also makes her a bit more adventurous to try things.
*A few words here and there…Mama, Dada, Baba, Amen. I always think of Ellie as the quiet one. Then we had just her and Avie for a few hours and boy was she a chatterbox!
*Loves swimming, not quite as much as James, but pretty close. She’s content to have her swimmies on and go about her own thing in the pool.

*We’re officially a bottle free household! It went a lot smoother than I thought it would. Now we’re working on having no milk at bed times.

*We had our first long road trip, since the babies were 8 months and they all did well….6 straight hours in the car. We’ve discovered the cure to Henry’s car sickness: Putting him in the middle with Ave, which means all the seats are up and there isn’t as much room to move around. We realized though, that there is no way we could have 5 kids in the van on a daily basis.
