18 months and thriving

Have you seen these girls at Walmart?

So, the girls had their 18 month check-up the other day.  The little sluggers weigh in at 24 and 25 lbs (~50th-percentile), and are 32.5" tall (~75th-percentile).

The pediatrician gave us a gentle slap on the wrist for our feeding practices.  Before the check-up, meal time was slowly becoming a game of "distract the toddler with toys and TV while we try and feed them".  This resulted in the girls sitting in the high chair for about an hour every meal.  Now, we have completely cut off any TV, minimized toys, and reduced meal time to 30 minutes.  So, sometimes the girls end up leaving the high chair having eaten very little, but in the peditrician's words: "they have enough reserves".  I think it's just because they were wearing a small shirt and their belly was sticking out.

In other news, the girls are taking advantage of the nice weather we've been having.  We recently got them a bouncy castle, a slide, and a water table: the start to our backyard playground.  The girls are getting really good at climbing up and sliding down the slide.  They're also great at spilling all the water out of the water table and onto their clothes.

Too tired: couldn't wait until we lifted them into bed
