Blessington Farms

We took a spur of the moment trip to Blessington Farms on Thursday.  We went with my parents, SIL Steph and my niece Paisley.  The girls had so much fun.  They wandered through pumpkin patches, went down a huge slide, went to their first petting zoo, and rode a train.  The weather was beautiful and the girls were cooperative.  Such a fun outing for the fall!

Triple Play: 16 Months


How old?  16 Months.
 
Our weights? estimates S: 19 lbs T: 21 lbs M: 20 lbs
They are currently wearing 12 months clothes.  However, I realized they still wear one outfit that is 6 months, haha.

Our sleeping patterns?  Still doing 2 naps at 10:30 and 2:30.  We will be going to one nap soon I think.

At night, the girls mostly wake up between 10-11:30 PM.  It can be one of them or all three.  Sometimes its teething, they dropped a pacifier, or they just want to snuggle.  After we get them back down, they are normally out until 8 AM.

 Our eating schedule?  At 8 AM they get sippy cups of milk and breakfast, 12 PM they get sippy cups of water and lunch, 2:15 PM they get sippy cups of milk and a snack, 5:15 PM they get sippy cups of water and dinner, and 8 PM they get an 8+ oz bottle of milk. 

 Our favorite foods?  A new favorite this month is blueberry muffins.
 
Our likes? Climbing on the couch, running around in tennis shoes, wagon rides, being free, animals, and cartoons.
 
 Our dislikes?  When they get left in a room (for 30 seconds) by themselves, when you take away the pacifier, when they fall or bump something, and if you aren't giving them ALL of your attention.
 
Our favorite games/toys?  Puzzles are a big hit right now.  They LOVE books and I can finally let them hold them without finding a huge bite taken out.  I still have to keep an eye on them and remind them to "take it out of your mouth".
 
Our milestones? 
S:  Animal noises (gorilla and lion)
  T: Says turtle and "tickle, tickle, tickle" while trying to tickle someone (so darn cute!)
  M: Beginning to try to repeat words.  Loves words that start with 'B'.... bird, bath, book, baby, belly button, etc.

Things we do to make Mom and Dad smile?  Giggles, cuddles, following directions, holding our hands, learning or saying something new.
