16 months 2 months

I am loving life right now:) Ian is at such a fun age and Spencer is doing great!! 
Ian is taking his time really talking but says a few words inconsistantly. He calls for our dogs Annie and Mimi and we THINK he tells them "Good Girl" but it is hard to make out. He also says duck, hello, go, milk, no, dada, mama, blue, ball and "boo" (book). He also said I love you "La La You" and gave me a kiss before nap a few days ago. I swear I didn't cry:)!!!! He runs everywhere and is getting into all kinds of trouble:) He is also obsessed with buckles!! He goes around the house and latches anything with buckles (highchairs, carseats, strollers, bouncy seats) EVERYTHING is buckled up. 
Spencer is sleeping 9-11 hours most nights. Crazy for 2.5 months old but I am not complaining. He is a very content baby. He cries when he needs something but is pretty happy just to hang out in his bouncy seat or in your lap most of the time.  A few differences between Spencer and Ian at this age are that Spencer cannot stand to be in a wet diaper and Ian couldn't have cared less if he was wet or dirty (still doesn't). Ian was much harder to get to sleep, although once asleep he slept great. Ian, even at Spencer's age, was showing signs that he was going to be a fun-loving crazy kid. He is definitely our extrovert. Spencer is a very happy baby but he just seems more serious. 

We have been spending a lot of time at the Children's Museum. They have a great area for Ian to play in called the "TOT SPOT". It is only for kids 0-36 months and he loves playing with all of the other kids. 

Annie and Mia love Spencer right now. He can't pull their ears yet!!!

Some of the "trouble" that Ian is getting in:)

Ian tries to follow Annie out of the doggie door at Mom's house. He can't get his butt through but that doesn't stop him from trying:)  

SOOOOOO glad he figured out he can climb on the coffee table. LOL

Ian "helping" me unload the dishwasher. 

Ian and Spencer at the same age in the same outfit. (Spencer is first)

 Ian's new tricycle!! He can't use the pedals yet but it won't be long. And the best part... IT HAS A TON OF BUCKLES. Ian spends half the time on it trying to figure out what else he can buckle up:)

Ian loves playing in the water and is very independent. We put him in some water wings and he was in heaven. He loves going under the water and blowing bubbles. 

Spencer hanging out by the pool:)

Spencer's 2 month appointment and first shots. Poor guy:(

After the appointment he slept ALL day.
