So many things...Ben & Ella edition

It's been a little while and so much to update! This first post is about Benjamin & Ella. They just turned 16 months yesterday!

Benjamin & Ella have somewhere picked up how to do high fives or will at least slap your hand when you ask them to give you five. Cuteness! I guess I mentioned this before, but I'll mention it again.

Both are now holding onto phones and saying "hello, how are you?" It sounded like Ella said "I'm good" the other day. Jon has finally heard Benjamin say "thank you" when Jon handed him something. speaking of the phone, they have this plastic set of keys that they will pretend is a phone and will talk into that. It does kinda look like the pretend cell phone in a way - same colors.

Ella knows what a sleepsack is and will go get it when I ask her to (most of the time).

We went to the park on Saturday and let them walk across the soccer field to the playground. Benjamin saw two older kids (let's say around 9) playing with a football and Benjamin had this look on his face that it was the coolest thing EVER! He wanted to play too. Older kids are so cool and they're playing with a ball! So we had to gear him away from that - next time, will bring a ball of our own for him to play with.

Ella was very interested in the colored areas of the astroturf field. At one point, she tried to pick up a yellow circle painted onto the field. She was a little disappointed that she couldn't.

They did not want to leave when it was time to go home for a nap. Of course not. Ella really wanted to go back in the swing - she put her hands up for me to put her back in there. We try to go there often, but can only do so when it's nice out!

I can't think of anything else. They both like to talk. They both have a cute little dance. When they are standing when I ask them where their feet are, they dance around. SO CUTE!
