I'm thinking the twins are too old to be called babies now - but the older M's persist in calling them "babies" constantly. They are 17 months old, walking, talking toddlers!
Yes talking - Megan adds new words almost every now and is even putting words together!
Maribeth (who is still language delayed for adjusted age) has even added a couple of new words - one of which being (bet you could see this one coming ) BABY!
Take this exchange today:
Megan wants Maribeth to come with her so she calls, "Baby! - Come BABY - come BABY!"
Maribeth turns her head at "baby" and says, "aaaahhh - BABY" and follows Megan off to the sliding doors to check out the backyard view.
You would think that toddlers old enough to call themselves babies are too old to be called babies. But I'm the only one in the house that thinks that. Allan says "awww -they are THE BABIES - the will ALWAYS be THE BABIES". The older M's say "they are too babies".
Someday though - they are going to turn around and say "we are NOT babies".
