Ok, I heard somewhere that they are toddlers from 9-36 months!
I think that's ridiculous, of course.
They might very well be toddlers, Emily is still my little baby. Katie is still my little baby, even though she keeps telling me she's not a little baby anymore, she's a big kid.
Emily picked up two new words today. She was pointing at the dog and I asked her if that was the doggy, and she very firmly said, "dog". Later Katie and Grandma were playing with a ball. Emily started crawling after it, unnoticed by grandma and Katie. Poor baby was crawling back and forth for this darn ball. She finally started crying and crawled over to me. I was doing some work on the computer at the time and was unaware of what was going on. I picked her up and she turned herself around and pointed to Grandma and Katie playing. I asked her if she wanted a ball. She smiled huge. I picked up a couple of balls and put her in front of them. She started playing with them, and in a satisfied voice, said, "ball."
This seems pretty precocious, though. I mean, are they supposed to have 6 words at 10.5 months? It's a little frightening. I think Katie had 2. I think she was saying "Mama," and "Quack". Goes to show you where that kid's priorities were.
I think DH was a little disgruntled to be playing second fiddle to "Quack".
