Our Little Monkey

Our little monkey has figured out how to climb out of his crib! I found this out yesterday when he was supposed to be napping. I heard several noises coming from their room so I went to check on them and found Collin out of bed and he had "trashed" the room. All of the books were pulled off the book shelf, the humidifer was turned upside down and leaking all over the floor, and he was handing Addison things in her bed. I was hoping it was a one time thing but he proved me wrong today during nap time and climbed out almost immediately! I had to put him back in bed twice and I watched him climb up and down on the crib railing at least 5 times. Steven and I weren't sure what to do so I called on a friend with triplets to find out how to handle our new challenge. She suggested crib tents and loaned us hers so we will find out soon if we can contain our little monkey!
Can you see how proud he is of himself?

19 Months Old

Last week Addison, Bryce and Collin turned 19 months old and its hard to believe that soon we will be planning yet another birthday party for them.
Just before their 19 month birthday we went to see Dr. Draehn for our well check up and shots. We also got an update on weights, heights, and percentiles.
Weight 22lbs -20%tile
Height 31 1/4in -40%tile
Addison loves peas and will eat them double fisted. She is a mother hen and makes sure the boys have food, drinks or toys. She is a momma's girl and wants to be with me even around the house. 

Weight 27lbs -70%tile
Height 33in -70%tile
Bryce likes tomatoes even though Addison and Collin won't touch them. He is either in a really good mood or he can be a grouch when he is tired or hungry, but who isn't! Most of the time he is pretty layed back and will go with the flow.

Weight 22lbs -10%tile
Height 32in -40%tile
Collin likes avocados and ate a whole avocado by himself. He has learned what time out is and as a result has not bit as much lately (fingers crossed)! He is very possessive over his cozy coupe.
We had family over on the 7th to watch the Cotton Bowl Game. It wasn't the outcome we hoped for but look at these cute cousins having fun!

We had a wonderful Christmas and are so blessed to have so many family and friends to share the holidays with. After 8 Christmas gatherings we are finally catching up on rest and getting ready to get back into our regular routine. The babies really enjoyed opening presents this year but in typical one year old fashion they  were too busy playing after the first present that they didn't want to open anything else. I feel like I didn't get a lot of pictures at any one place but here is a combination of our Christmas festivities.

This is the closest we got to Santa at the Loesch Family Christmas
