I'll never know.
I do know you two are
the cutest children on the entire planet.
You get more fun everyday and now that you are sleeping I don't have that much to complain about.
I think I'm actually going to have to clean the house now that I'm getting sleep.
I write you each letters but those are just for you so here are a few of my favorite things for everyone else to enjoy.
Colton: You have so much hair and it's getting darker. I think Daddy is jealous - he lost his hair at 14 ; )
Chloe: You have barely any and you are definitely a blondie.
Colton: You sleep all night but are not a fan of naps. Sometimes you scream for 30 minutes before going down.
Chloe: You are a big nap fan.....yesterday you slept for 3 1/2 hours.
You both say mama, dada and nuhnuh and Chloe you throw in a Bubba every now and then. Chlo - you are close to saying bye bye and do the the cutest little practicing thing that daddy and I can't get enough of. Everytime you are asked to mimic me you move your lips like "I better make sure my mouth can do that before I try to make the noise"
Chloe: You love food. Your favorites are still mango, avacado and this month we can go ahead and add bananas, peas and brown rice to the list.
Colton: You also like peas and brown rice but bananas are definitely your favorite. You eat, but you are far less enthusiastic than your sister. Somehow you still manage to outweigh her by almost 3 pounds???
Colton is crawling all over the place and acting mildly like Godzilla toppling over any and everything. Yes, your sister included as you can see here.
Chloe: I think you are going to start crawling any day now. You get up on all fours, rock back and forth and even move one knee forward but then realize what's the point and plop back down on your belly. I can't decide whether you are a master manipulator or just a controlling little girl. Neither of which run in the family on my side! The more we try to make you crawl the more opposed you are. You have resorted to shooting your legs out like a pencil and locking them so we can't get you into the crawl position again.
You both love Yo Gabba Gabba and are mesmorized by the mere sound of DJ Lance Rocks footsteps. When the song starts - forget about it. **Yes my kids watch tv. They watch a lot of tv....let the eye rolling and judging commence.***
You both still share a pair of dimples and it is one of my favorite things about you. Chloe's is on the right and Colton's is on the left. I actually
Bubba we still call Bubba and only Bubba but Chloe has 462 nicknames. I will be shocked if you ever know your real name. I call you Tika (pronounced Teeeeka) most often now. You love being tickled which turned in to tEEkle which morphed into teeka. So now I call you Tika. Or Tika Chica. Dady calls you birdie because you always flap your arms and legs in udder deliciousness when he walks through the door. You're still Chlo, Baby G and G. Ok, so maybe not 462 but I feel like there are way more than 4??
We're getting ready to put you in your big kid carseats. You even tested them out the other day but I am still hesitant to take the leap.....not because I want to hold on your babyness for ever and ever.
That would be silly!
No, really, it's not for that reason.
It's because I will now have to carry you two everywhere instead of carrying just your carseats, which is actually more difficult than it sounds.
You both love music and really love it when I sing to you. Our favorite song is You Are My Sunshine and I cry almost every single time I get to the "you'll never know dear, how much I love you" part.
Because, it's true.
You'll never ever know dears, how much I love you.
Happy 8 month Birthday 2 days late.
