Twin Updates

15 Months
On December 27th the twins turned 15 months.
They went to the doctor and had their well check.
Both weighed 19 pounds and were 30 inches long.

I'm going to try my best to remember their info... 
I really should have done this post while it was fresh in my mind!
 But here goes...

The twins wore size 3 diapers and size 9-12 month clothing. They also wore size 3 in shoes.
They took two naps a day and still slept with their lovies and sleep sacks.  Both babies were addicted to their binkies and were immediately soothed by them.  Harper and Hudson both only said "Maa" and "Dadda" at this point as well.  The Dr. said we needed to try and get them to improve their language before the next appointment.  I feel like he said they should be saying 3-6 words at this point.

16 Months
On January 27th the twins turned 16 months. 
The babies have really changed so much.   They are definitely little toddlers now! They are wearing  all ranges of clothing , depending on the item!  They 

My little drama diva.  You are a riot. 
1. You are obsessed with your big brother Reagan. You follow him everywhere and love to climb into his lap. You also love to "help him" get dressed, give him a bath, and put lotion on him.
2. You are deathly afraid of our 8 lb. dog Lily.
3. You always prefer Mommy's arms to everyone's. Even Daddy.
4. You like to dance.
5. You love to cuddle your dolls and you especially love your stuffed "Boo" and baby doll in bed. 
5. You love to get dressed and put bows on.
6. You always nod your head. Yes. No. You are very expressive.
7. You say "Mama", "Dada", "No", "Ya", "Night", "All Done".
8. You bite. When you are frustrated and mad, you bite. It hurts! 
9. You hate getting scolded or in trouble.  If we yell or say no to you, you immediately bow your head and stick out your lip.  You even walk to the corner where Rea Rea sits in time out and put yourself there. It is hysterical. Drama I tell you.

10. You sing and talk in your crib before you fall asleep. Cracks me up. Thank goodness your brother sleeps through it all. 
11. You give kisses with an open mouth and love to cuddle.
12. Your favorite things are your baby dolls, the ball pit, and books.

My little Huddy Buddy
1. You have more personality than I can bear. I could eat you up.
2. You are a wild animal and run everywhere.
The amount of wipe outs you've had, you should be covered in bruises!
But you literally get up with no tears and keep running with no sign of injury.
3. You have really started to "talk". At 15 months you rarely said Mama, and Dad only sometimes.
You are now saying "goal", "look", "ball", "dog", "duck", "night night" and "uh oh".
4. You are 100 percent , completely bffs with your Papa. Your face lights up and you prefer his arms to anyone else's --- even mine!
5. Your favorite things are books, balls, and anything you can throw and crash. 
6. You love to throw yourself on anyone who is sitting on the floor and "tackle" them.  Whether they want it or not, you are going to dog pile them!
7. You still grin ear to ear whenever you see Yo Gabba Gabba.
8. You love to hold your sister's hand and console her when she's upset.
9. You LOVE bathtime and throw yourself in whether I'm ready or not. Clothes and all.
10. You can climb onto the couch. You first taught yourself with a chair and now can do it without. Trouble.
11. You don't sit still for long.... the only person you sit down with is your Papa.
12. You love to play soccer with Reagan.  You actually kick the ball down the field and aim for the goal. You crack us up.  Future athlete over here!

Day at the Zoo

On MLK day, we spent the day at the zoo.
It was a perfect day for walking around, visiting with family, and seeing some animals!

Here are some pictures from the day!

Nick's Aunt and Uncle flew in from Montana to visit Nick's Mom and Grandma. 
We were happy to visit them at the zoo as well! 

Rea Rea and Grammy.

Lunchtime with Huddy!

Grammy trying to get a picture with the twins... Harper was being a pill and wouldn't look at the camera!

Mother's Therapy Organics Review and Giveaway!

I was contacted by Amy at Mother's Therapy Organics to review their hand sanitizer and hand lotion. 

As a mom and teacher, I use hand sanitizer all the time! There are germs everywhere and I am constantly squirting my hands with whatever sanitizer I can. So yes. I was thrilled to try out this natural product that would actually moisturize my hands instead of drying them out.  

First of all, here is a little info on the product. Mother's Therapy Organics is a woman owned company that strives to provide parents with healthy options.  They use safe, natural, and organic ingredients in all of their cleaning products.  

I brought both products to school and have been keeping them on my desk.  I am constantly using the sanitizer and am thrilled to report that it has not dried out my hands!  You can actually feel it moisturizing your hands unlike many of the other sanitizers I have used that immediately dry out my skin. Another perk- it smells amazing! A very refreshing scent! You can read more about the specific ingredients in the hand sanitizer here.  Pretty cool, right?  The second product I tried was the germ fighting hand lotion.  I love the smell and the way it makes my hands feel.  I thought about leaving it in the teacher's bathroom for my fellow teachers to use throughout the day. And then got selfish and decided against it.  I didn't want to share! :) I like it that much! Want to read more about the ingredients  in it- click here.

Now it's your turn to try it out!
You can win a $20 family pack of Mother's Therapy Organics Hand Sanitizers! 
Enter below!
Good luck!
