12 - 24 Months

I ca not believe the kids are 18 months old now. They are super independent, sometimes more then mommy would like. Climbing on everything is still a huge hit with them, though they are taller and more skilled now, so they try to scale everything including the bookcase (attached to the wall). The thing they love the most though is being outside. They would stay out there all day if I would let them. We still need to finish fencing in the yard though before we can stay out there for long periods of time with just me.

They are their own little people with their own distinct interests, but they stick together like peas in a pod.

Since she is so shy, people tend not to see it, but she is hilarious!  She loves to instigate the tag game with the other children. She runs around laughing, tagging them, and gets them to chase her. She is also my biggest "talker".
