Today the boys are 20 months old. And thanks, Sarah, for pointing out that we’re only 4 months away from the big t-w-o now. I was trying not to think of that. (Except when, last week, I bought the decorations for the boys’ birthday party. They were on clearance!)
Soooo, what are they doing now?
Well, they’re communicating a lot more with us now. They’ve been working on their signs with their speech therapist, and actually using them. Like, this morning, Miles asked George for help with his shoes. He patted his chest (the sign for help) and said “hep.” Hee! So cute. And he also indicated to me that he was hungry, doing the sign for “eat”. Their speech therapist has said that Miles is doing the best with the signs so far, but Oliver asked for help last week, too. And Linus too, but his communication mostly involves asking for Yo Gabba Gabba.
Miles has also shown a propensity toward removing his clothes. I thought it might have been a one off, when he took his jammies off that day, but he’s done it again, plus he made me take off his shirt at my cousin’s baby shower a couple of weeks ago. And just look at the picture above! Yeesh, child!
For some reason, I’ve been taking a lot of pictures of the boys lately, so let me share a few cute ones…

I love this picture from the wedding. Ellie was showing Miles how to stand on the fence. The romantic, blurry, fuzzy effect is from baby fingerprints all over my camera lens. Much easier than photoshop!
