*Changed their last name to Banana. They, especially Noah, will switch our last names and start calling out: Noah Banana, Mommy Banana, Daddy Banana, Natty Banana!
*Have a strong grasp on the meaning of MINE.
*Have named their parts: Noah calls his "this" or "good stuff". Natalia calls hers "baby."
*Like to call me "Bad Mommy" when they don't get their way.
*Like to call Jeff "MommyDaddy" to get a fun reaction out of him.
*They are Master Manipulators. They know how use the full power of hugs, kisses and I love yous to get what they want.
*Have decided nap time is not needed. They still do, but boy do they fight it.
*Noah makes houses out of blocks and call them "Grandma's house" or "castles." Natalia separates the blocks in groups of colors or letters and makes double decker "trains"
*Love ketchup, cheese and grapes. Not together.
*Like jumping into our bed and under the blankets and pretend to sleep.
*Hang their heads down when they are yelled at.
*Call cakes: Happy Cake.
*They count to 12, sometimes 15. English & Spanish.
*Enjoy tackling each other and throwing themselves to the floor. Yes, I cringe but they laugh, so they get to play.
*Kiss themselves in the mirror and call their reflections Baby Natty & Baby Noah.
*Like singing their ABC's, Happy Birthday and Wheels on the Bus songs.
*They love their Mommy and Daddy. Not exactly mind-blowing but a fact I like a lot.
Oh, and fact: they were literally made 3 years ago yesterday in a petri dish.
