It has been way way way way way (did I say way?) too long since I blogged about my incredible amazing fantastic children.
Norah was 1st to hold her own bottle, but Alex was the 1st to master picking up Cheerios and putting them in her mouth.
(Each girl does both with ease now.)
Norah eats everything. Alex scrunches her face when given food she doesn’t like, which is more often that we’d like. (Finickiness does run in the family on both sides, though.)
Norah is able to stand up, and even did a little bit of “walking” while holding on to the gate of our “Fun Zone” in the living room.
Alex is lazy like Daddy, but has recently started doing the “get on all fours and try pushups” phase — which was the precursor for Norah’s standing up.
Norah is now having full-on babble conversations with herself (or with imaginary friends?).
Alex is all about “Da Da,” but I’m 65% sure that she hasn’t quite attributed that title to me specifically. She does throw in a few “Mamas,” as does Norah.
Norah’s hair is coming in fast now — dark and straight.
Alex has had a mass of curls for a while, and it’s kinda “dirty brown” but still pretty light.
Norah enjoys splashing in the tub.
Alex enjoys fighting me when I try to get her in the tub seat. I have to basically hold her above it and wait for her to stop kicking or swinging her legs around. Eventually she gets tired and goes into the seat.
When she’s not standing in the Fun Zone, Norah crawls like a Navy Seal.
Alex has picked up the pace, although she uses her elbows and forearms more than her hands when crawling.
They just turned 13 months two days ago.
And being a parent is the most incredible experience of our lives.
So you’ll have to excuse me as a lazy blogger. I’m also a devoted Daddy.
