Kate's 15 Month Check-Up

The girls had their check-ups a couple of weeks ago. Dr. Riikola said Kate was just perfect. Like we didn't already know that. :)  She weighs 22 pounds (50th percentile) and is 30 inches tall (50th percentile).  She got 3 shots and was NOT happy about it. And everyone else in the office knew as well!  At 15 months, she almost runs, says mama, bye-bye, G ( her grandfather), uh-oh, no, and signs more and all done. She loves to get into shouting contests with Jack (and often wins). Can do the motions for Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and If You're Happy and You Know It and tries to sing along. Can give "five." Loves her "stinky sheep."  Definitely the more laid back of the twins. Looks just like her Mommy. She's our little angel!

Ella's 15 Month Check-Up

Dr. Riikola said Ella passed her check-up with flying colors. She weighs 22 pounds (50th percentile), and is 30 inches tall (50th percentile). She too got 3 shots and didn't mind too much.  At 15 months she runs, signs more and all done, says bye-bye and mama and sometimes dada, tries to say Jack (it comes out as "Ack") and LOVES to be held and loved on. She too can sing Twinkle Twinkle and If You're Happy and gives "five."She is definitely the boss of the girls.  Loves her naps. We love this sweet little girl!!

A Typical Afternoon in the Bauch House

Destroyed kitchen and naked 3 year olds are a common occurrence in our house. Note the naked Jack in the corner.
