{ D & H } 20 Months

Drake and Hunter are 20 months.

They are repeating everything we say which is neat! We tell them new words every day!

They say "touch" often referring to want to touch the mounted deer in their room.

They say please often, and it is so sweet. They also say thank you. We most often hear please in the mornings "Milk please"

They refer to their little brother as Kuke rather than Luke.

They call Aunt Lacey, Ce-Ce, and are now able to say Casey for Uncle Casey. They call Bowen "baby." We are working on saying Bowen or Bo, but they struggle since their grandparents have a dog named Bo. So, they associate Bo with the dog at Meme and PawPaw's. 

They are now able to say their names, Drake and Hunter. Hunter seems easier for them to pronounce.

This month they really started saying "no-no" It is so funny. They shake their finger back and forth and say "no-no _____ " Typically a name follows ! ;)

Drake says "k" in the appropriate way. I can ask him to "be careful, okay?" and he will say "k." I can also say "are you okay" and he replies "yes." I was so impressed that he knows when it is appropriate to say "k" in response. 

It amazes me how much they understand. They will repeat you and count up to 5. 

They still love bath time. Hunter still prefers to sit near the faucet, while Drake likes to sit in the back.

They love to play with their ducks during bath time and give lots of kisses to the duck.

Hunter LOVES to say bye. He tells everything bye. Bye tree, bye deer, bye barney, bye cup, etc. It is so precious.

They both adored having a Christmas tree in the house. They want it plugged in immediately when they wake up. I was very proud that they did not try to mess with the tree or ornaments!

They still love books and read often. They are now to the point they will actually let you read an entire page before turning it. Their attention span has definitely grown!

They are now into Mickey Mouse Clubhouse! This is one of their new words, "Mickey Mouse" They watch that or Barney. 

They still wear size 5 diapers.

We are in size 18 months clothes. Some are a little on the big side, but most fit perfect.

They made their annual trip to the deer lease this month. To say they loved it would be an understatement. They had a blast. They got to throw out corn, go on a hunt, and ride the four wheeler. Their first hunt was with Brandon and his dad. They did not see anything, but the boys had fun!

They still LOVE their crocs and wear them often. 

They are often running around the house in diapers and crocs! I know from my photos people must believe that my children don't own clothes. This is totally the opposite of our situation. We have SO MANY clothes. They are well-dressed little boys when they leave our home, but when we are home, we are just that HOME. They are relaxing, playing, and laying around. They love being in a diaper. They pull at their clothes for us to take them off. I am sure this is because for so long I have let them run around in diapers so it is their "normal." My babies are only going to be babies once, and I love seeing their bellies and thighs! I love to kiss on them and I know they are comfortable. 

These boys completely adore each other. They are best friends. They are rarely in different rooms. They give each other hugs and kisses. They pat each other if one is upset. They share anything and everything. They often get 2 of the toy they want to play with and take the other to their brother. 

They are able to crawl up on basically anything. They have yet to try and escape their cribs which I LOVE!

They also enjoy hiding in their closet.

They love to turn on their music soother.

They still play in their laugh and learn house and have so much fun. They tell us Hi and Bye as they play.

Hunter has a new fascination with his blanket from his crib set. He LOVES this blanket. He calls it a blanket, Drake has started calling his a night-night. Drake is not nearly as attached, but since Hunter wants it, so does he.
