Chugging right along here. Lest I forget what Julia was like at 28 months, Sebastian at 15 months, and Theo at 6 weeks (Babycenter sent a reminder email .... don't think I go around counting Julia's age in months .... I waste my crazy on much worthier causes) ... I'll pound it out here ... annoying mom style. Toe touch.
Julia: Tests her limits every minute of every day. Her latest and greatest is peeling bananas and clementines and feeding them to her brothers. They sort of appreciate her generosity. I absolutely do not appreciate that she plows through a week's worth of bananas in one swift peeling tornado. She is also very skilled at getting herself out of her car seat and climbing to the back and freeing Sebastian from the confines of his identical seat. She knows to only do this when I'm driving on the interstate because I can do approximately nothing by way of punishment in the heat of the moment. However, it's not all doom and gloom with our eldest ... she is still a very good long napper and if she opts to not nap she is happy to just sit and talk the ears off the menagerie of her Dora dolls in her crib. She has also picked up that Simon and I are somewhat concerned about Sebastian's lack of a vocabulary and frequently prompts him to say simple words like, "yes" and "no" .... the toddler essentials. If he succeeds she claps for him and awards him a high-pitched, "good boy!!" ... he is usually unamused.
Sebastian: Tests his limits every minute of every day. He's cutting his vampires and is taking it like a little man. He shows zero interest in Theo aside from the occasional bop on the head with a heavy object. His obsession with toilets lives on and he throws himself dramatically on the floor whenever he doesn't get what he wants. He takes a little power nap in the morning that I always cut short so that he'll take a nice long nap (to coincide with Julia's) in the afternoon. He's toned down the biting humans habit except for when I'm working out - he seems to take that as an open invite to attack. He walks around exclaiming, "D-d-d-dora!" all the time but won't sit still to watch the actual show like his addict of a sister.
Theodore: Eats a lot, sleeps a lot, requires a lot of diaper changes, hasn't lost his hair yet, and is mostly pleasant. He still wears newborn diapers and outfits and is most definitely not taking after Sebasgiant in this arena ... quite yet.
Enough? I'm happy to go into exciting detail surrounding Julia's potty training triumphs and failures or maybe a little writeup on our bedtime routine orrrrr a breakdown of the 3500 calories Sebastian consumes on the daily?
Next time. If you're good.
