Growing Like A Weed

Source

Yesterday, JJ turned 14 months and Moo is almost to her 4th birthday!  My oh my where has the time gone?  My little babies (toddlers) are growing like weeds right before my very eyes.  I thought having two kids would make things slow down a bit.  It hasn't.  If anything, it's made the time go by faster.  Thank goodness for pictures!

So, what have my two weeds been up to?  Well, JJ is getting closer to walking unassisted or without holding on to things.  He loves to get in the middle of the floor and pull himself into a standing position and balance himself.  He's got the hang out of it so well that he's starting to balance himself in the bed!  That terrifies me because I'm afraid one day he's going to go over the edge.

He's becoming quite the chatter.   His favorite words are "Get It" and "Stop."  He still doesn't say mama much unless someone else is holding him and he wants to me to get him.  No worries though.  Moo does enough mama calling for the both of them! LOL.  Throw It On The Floor seems to be his favorite game these days.

No matter what you give him (or he can get his hands on), he likes to drop on it floor and then say "Get It."  So far, we've had two broken snow globes and cracked remote thanks to his new fave game.  I've also gone through two toothbrushes this month alone.  Climbing in, out of and on things is still another one of his favorite pastimes.   I feel like a human rock wall some days.

He has five pearly whites now with another one coming in on the bottom.  I'll have to snap a picture while he's sleeping and post it later.  Besides hanging out in the kitchen with me, Moo has been getting knee deep in reading and learning this summer.  She checked out 17 books from the library last Saturday.  So far, we've read at least two books everyday.

Her nose bleeds are back!  Not sure why because we've been indoors enjoying the cool air thanks to a combination of rainy weather, heat and the neighbors.  Yes, I said the neighbors.  There's supposed to be a no pet policy but clearly that only applies us because these people have a dog and two outdoor cats.  Well, Moo is allergic to both cats and dogs.

And since the cats have been hanging out on our side of the yard and our porch to avoid Moo picking up germs and getting a breakout we haven't ventured outside much.  I'm also mopping the floors down with Clorox and not wearing shoes much to stop from retracking the germs back onto the clean floors.  This will get a lot easier once my new Hoover TwinTank Steam Mop gets here!  Plus, we're moving soon and that will help a lot.

Moo has taken an interest in money and has much things cost.  I love that she's interested in personal finances at such a young age and will take advantage of this.  She doesn't like watching tv that much. Not complaining about that either.  

And she's pretty much content so long as she can tag along behind me.  She's still head over heels in love with brother.  I'm still breastfeeding JJ but it's most;y just at least and after naptime.  Well, that's a wrap for updates.

What are your kiddies up to?  Are they growing like weeds?

  1. Ok. JJ is 14 months? I seriously remember when he was born(like I was there)! When is Moo turning 4? My little one turns 4 on August 4th.
    I remember having a money interest at a young age. It grew as I got older and now I'm a save-a-holic.

    1. Yes, I can't believe he's 14 months either. Moo will be 4 this Winter. She's good at saving her own money but she loves spending Mommy and Daddy's. LOL

  3. So fun, love that Moo is interested in money! Great that she's getting into it so young! My daughter has been obsessed with time for years, I don't understand - and it's precisely the reason why I won't get her a clock for her room. She needs to know what's happening, when, where, all of it - she has 3 watches!!
    We are busy with the summer and various activities and tons of time in some form of water, and starting to plan her party in September, I'd rather NOT have a party, but she insists, so checking out a pool today to possibly have her party.

    1. I think Moo is over her time phase for a while. We were going through a period where she had to know what time it was every hour almost. Good luck pool hunting! Once kids get their minds set on something it's hard to change it, especially when it comes to birthdays and Christmas!

  5. Sounds like they are growing just wonderfully. I think it's great that Moo isn't interested in the TV that much. Good for her because sometimes parents have to pry children away from the TV.

    1. I'm glad I won't be one of those parents. Can't wait to get her into some dance classes or playing an instrument.
