Instead of doing Gingerbread Houses this year, we decorated Christmas Trees (ice cream cones) because I thought it would be something the twins could do too!) at the end of December.
First I got all the supplies ready during naptime!
And then I got Connor all set up first. I wasn't sure if the twins were going to get it, so I wanted to make sure I could give my undivided attention to him first.
I frosted the cones for the babies and showed them how to do it. I think Aiden put one piece of candy on his tree and Isabella put two. They both just stuffed their mouths every time they could reach the candy. Ha! Oh well...at least they participated with their big brother.
I was kinda surprised at how little Connor ate. Don't get me wrong, he stuffed his mouth with candy too, but his tree was covered in candy too!
Afterwards I took these hilarious photos of Aiden in his Super Hero in Training shirt. How could you not think this shirt is ridiculously adorable?!? I want one for Isabella too!! =)
It was even more hilarious because he was walking around with a bottle. Have I mentioned they are completely on milk now?!? Can I hear a "hallelujah!" Woo-hoo! They only get bottles at naptime and night, and the rest of the time they are using sippy cups!
I know they're 18 months and shouldn't be on bottles at naptime either, but both their pediatrician and therapist agreed that at this point getting them on milk is a huge accomplishment. We can work on the bottle soon.
Enjoy the video above of them! So cute!
Both the babies are just talking up a storm...constantly babbling, but neither are forming many words. Our therapist would like to have them referred to a speech therapist. I'm not worried at all, but I feel the same way I did about getting them qualified for services the first time: if they can get extra help, why not give them every possible opportunity for success?
