Don't know if you can see the green smudge on her forearm, but they both got stamps from the doctor for being so good!
Kate has definitely entered her toddler stage. In addition to the walking, she says , "Uh-oh" and just said "Mommy" for the first time today. I'm not sure if she understands that I'm Mommy, but I think so. She wasn't calling me mommy. I'll take it though. She is also perfecting her tantrum throwing. However, George and I are combatting that with a simple time out in the crib until she is sweet again (something we learned from Growing Kids God's Way). She is possessive and knows what she wants. She is also just as sweet. She showed me more in sign language today after I told her to show me more. And I think that she gets the concept of all done.
Hannah is on her own time schedule. The pediatrician was a tad concerned that she didn't have her first word yet, but then I think she remembered that she was evaluating them on their real age and not their adjusted age. I guess it just gave me some motivation to work with her a little bit more. I'm not concerned. Hannah loves to clap! I try to get her to do more in sign language, but it's similar to clapping so she thinks I'm trying to get her to clap. In due time. What else can I say about Hannah? She loves to cuddle up to us with her pacifier and blanket. I did mention a pacifier. I originally thought that I would be getting rid of those at around 12 months, but I changed my mind. They only get them at naptime and bedtime. We'll see.
