Today is a somewhat special day. The girls are 16 months on the 16th. I think it's more special when they are actually that many years but right now age 16 is a number of years away (thankfully I think). For now I will take my special days when I get them.
New things this month: they can understand a lot more - like "bath" - they all head for the stairs and go up - in fact half the time they head up the stairs they go straight to the bath tub. Yesterday when we looked at some model homes the girls climbed the stairs and went straight to the bathroom - Rachel climbed right into the tub! So funny. Julianna is saying "nana" for bannana. Alyssa says "go" and "no" (and she's hitting a lot which is frustrating - just her sisters though).
As for teeth Julianna has a ton - 4 top, 4 bottom and at least 3 molars. Alyssa still just has her 8 and Rachel still just 6. Go figure. No sign of those two more bottom teeth anywhere :(
A friend of mine did take some fun pictures of the girls today but I don't have them yet so I'll share some silly pictures that I haven't shared before.
Julianna, a.k.a. Chipmunk (she hords food for hours - I don't know what to do - it's awful), Lianna (she has her name above her crib and she has mutilated the first 2 letters - we don't actually call her that). She's crazy and silly and FULL of life and she still loves that tiger...
Rachel: a.k.a. Rach (she tore off the last two letters), a.k.a pen thief (she's a pen addict! she's almost never walking around without a pen or a comb or a spoon or all of these at once)
Alyssa a.k.a. Lyssa (this we actually do call her and her name is fully intact on her wall), a.k.a. drama queen and princess (enough said)
And these are pictures of the back of her head - I'm trying to get her curls. When her hair is wet or she wakes up a bit sweaty her hair is sooo curly. I love it!! And she still has the most hair...
As for mommy, I got my hair chopped this weekend. What do you think? And be honest!! I was just copying my friend Cherie :) I like the color but I'm not sure about the length...
