September Update: Our Babies

A little update on our babies…

Name: Kelli
Baby Name: Adele
Age: 19 months
Height: I have no idea
Weight: 20 pounds, give or take a little
Hair: Strawberry blonde
Eyes: Blue
Clothing Size: Anywhere from 12-24 months
Shoe Size: I think a 4, but she has just started wearing her first pair of shoes: soft soled moccasins, so I can’t be sure.
Teeth: 11, with 5 more about to come in!
Eating habits: She has been eating a little more lately. She loves spicy food, always signing more when we eat salsa. She also has discovered that she loves Indian food! Chicken Tikka Masala and Chicken Korma are her favorites. Since we love Indian cuisine around here, I’m thankful she enjoys it as well!
Communication: She has started to talk a little more, and has even spoken a few two word phrases recently. She still thinks everything is hers, shouting “dat MINE” to whomever she pleases. She said to a stranger, “Dat Nana!” the other day, and pointed at her Nana, so that was fun to hear. She still signs a LOT to communicate, so even though she isn’t super verbal, we usually know what she wants.
Movement: About the same as last month. She loves to run, jump, dance, and climb. She has been trying to kick soccer balls at the older kids’ soccer practice, so maybe she is a future soccer player like her siblings!

Name: Alyssa
Baby Name: Dexter
Age: 23 months
Weight: No idea
Height: No idea
Hair: Dirty Blonde
Eyes: Blue Hazel
Clothing Size: 12-18 months
Shoe Size: No idea
Teeth: All
Eating Habits: Dexter is an eating machine.  He eats his food, plus Mr. Squish’s food (my food is my food!) and anything his siblings will give him.  Beans are by far one of his favorite things to eat.
Communication: He isnt really saying many real words. Mostly just babbling still.  We get the occasionally daddy, thank you, and doggy but nothing note worthy
Movement: He’s two…that should say it all

Name; Xza
Baby Name: Atticus
Age: 9 months (10 month on the 30th)
Height: 30”
Weight: 25 lbs 5 oz
Hair: Red
Eyes: Hazel
Clothing size: 12 months-18 months
Shoe Size: 3-4
Eating Habits: Still hates food, won’t take a bottle… he just wants the boob
Communication: No real change on the communication front this month
Movement: Crawling, cruising, and attempting to stand without mama’s help. Loves to “walk” when we hold his hands.

Name: Risa
Baby Name: Harper
Age: 9 months
Height: 27.5 inches
Weight: 14.5 lbs
Hair: Red
Eyes: One Blue, One green
Clothing Size: 6-9 Months
Shoe Size: No shoes for Harps yet, but her feet are small and pretty narrow
Teeth: Four total, two top and two bottom like a wittle wabbit. She is working on two top ones though
Eating habits: She eats like a champ. She has food, food with us every meal and at least one snack a day. She still prefers boob over anything though.
Communication: She says “mama” and “dada” all the time, but it really isn’t towards either one of us. Shas started yelling “MIMIMIMIMI” when she is done eating food so I think she is trying to say “milk.” We sign key words to her, but she has yet to try to copy us. She waves sometimes and gives slobbery face kisses.
Movement: She does a one-legged army crawl EVERYWHERE! She will stand a little bit on her own and she furniture walks. I want her to wait to walk, but daddy hopes she does it soon

Name: Jessica
Baby Name: Clara
Age: 11 months
Height: 27 inches
Weight: 17 lbs
Hair: Curly and brown
Eyes: Hazel
Clothing Size: 6-12 months
Shoe Size: 2
Teeth: 4
Eating habits: This girl puts food away like a teenage boy. Today, for example, she ate two whole pieces of french toast with cranberry apple butter, a piece of pizza, half a tomato, a handful of broccoli puffs, and a huge helping of vegetable stir fry for dinner. And then a whole banana for dessert. She also nurses about every three hours during the day.
Communication: She has started mimicking words. She says “Annie,” “baby,” “stinky,” “mama,” “dada,” and “hi,” but only when she feels like it. Of course. She also shakes her head no when she sees something that she wants to get but she knows she isn’t allowed.
Movement: She crawls, cruises, jumps a little, stands unassisted, and is going to take her first steps any day now.

Baby Name: Cormac
Age: 11 months
Height: 27 inches
Weight: 14.5 lbs
Hair: straight and blond
Eyes: blue
Clothing Size: 6-12 months
Shoe Size: 2
Teeth: 6
Eating habits: PICKY. Cormac likes cheese and sweets. He will lick the apple butter off his french toast, eat a piece of a mushroom, gorge himself on puffs and yogurt bites, and nurse every three hours, day or night on a day like today.
Communication: Cormac says mama and dada from time to time, babbles, screeches at his sister (she screeches back, marco polo style), and says “uh!” when I say, “uh oh!”
Movement: He pulls up on whatever he can, army crawls around the entire house, dances and sings, and cruises furniture.

Name: Geneva
Baby Name: Coyote
Age: 10 months
Height: Around 30 inches?
Weight: 24 pounds, give or take a little
Hair: Blonde/dirty blonde
Eyes: Blue
Clothing Size: Anywhere from 18 months-3T
Shoe Size: Still a 5.  Would be happy if his feet didn’t grow more until after he starts walking!
Teeth: 2 and I really hope that he has waaay more pop through this month.  He’s been a cranky, teething monster!
Eating habits: When his teeth aren’t bugging him, he will honestly eat us out of house and home!  We have reached the point where we have to order him something off the kid’s menu whenever we are eating in public, and then he will still eat more from my plate.  Kid is a vacuum.  He is still nursing, way more dependent on the breast when his gums are bothering him and solids aren’t appealing to him.
Communication: He has had a language explosion this month!  Between signing and talking, he probably has about 20 words.  He can sign: milk, more, all done, mama, and water.  He can say: kitty (kiii!), Dada, Mama, Ball, This (dis), That (dat!), Car (caaa?), Baby (biibii), and a few others.
Movement: He isn’t walking yet, but he can stand for a few minutes at a time and shows all the strength needed to walk.  I don’t know when it will happen, but for now, we are just enjoying the way he loves to push objects around on the floor to “walk” with.  🙂

Name: Misty
Baby Name: Elliot
Age: 17 months
Height: Unknown
Weight: 24 lbs
Hair: Brown & HUGE
Eyes: Dark brown
Clothing Size: 12-18 months
Shoe Size: 3
Teeth: Many
Eating habits: Can she fit it in her mouth? Can she hold it in her hand? Then she’s going to eat it. The ONLY 2 things she won’t eat is broccoli & mashed potatoes. Hates them. She loves fish, steak, brown rice, vegetables, all fruit, & anything we offer her.
Communication: Her vocab is growing. She now says “no” (which is SO fun) & “stop it!” when she is talking to her brother.
