17 Months

I have missed a lot of monthly updates on the girls but I am going to add 17 Months just because I actually remembered too. 

Hadley and Harper,
You are officially toddlers.  You both walk all the time.  There is really hardly any crawling anymore, unless you are trying to walk on an incline up hill or over a hump.  You feel more balanced and secure if you crawl.  You interact with each other.  You love to babble back and forth.  You are both concerned when the other sister is not around.  If I ask you "where is sister" you will look and look and until you find her.  Hadley, your FAVORITE word is UH OH.  It is pretty much the only word you know and you say it all day long.  Probably 50 times a day.  My favorite is when you say Uh Oh when you can't find something or someone so your little arms and hands go out as if you are confused or wondering where it is.  Harper, you say Uh Oh a lot too, but not nearly as much as Hadley.  Harper, you can say a lot.  Mama, Dada, Sister, Sadie, Balloon, Ball, shhhh (shoes), and dog. You love to make animal sounds (cow, cat, sheep, monkey, and your favorite is a dog). You both know the motions to Wheels on the Bus and the Itsby Bitsy Spider.  You love to clap for yourself and others when they sing with you. 
Now that you are both full time walkers we have been going to a lot more places to play.  We have been to the pool, Gymboree, Catch Air, the library, Barnes and Noble and of course a variety of parks.  The pool is the only place that I can't take you'll by myself.  You walk in different directions and have no concept of the danger of water and getting in by yourself. 
When we are home you love to help me unload the dishwasher, play in your water table, ride in your Cozy Coupes and eat/play with crushed ice.  You are both pretty good about playing and entertaining yourselves for a while when we are home.

You both eat very well. Harper, you are a little bit more picky than your sister, but both of you eat well.  Your favorite foods are yogurt, avocado, pizza, mac and cheese, BBQ pork or chicken, blueberries, strawberries, watermelon and Mandarin oranges.

You have so many teeth I have lost count.  You both recently got 8 in each at the same time.  Which caused both of you to have an ear infection but I had no idea for 2 weeks that is why you were grumpy....I thought it was just a cranky phase.

You are down to one long nap each day.  I still miss the 2 short naps but I will take the one long one (12:30-3:30)

You are happy girls and I love playing with you all day long!
