Stronger Together

The Cavelets can:

  • Sleep through the night – they start getting up close to 6am now
  • Play hard indoors and outdoors
  • Collectively destroy stuff (mostly Michaela and Christopher leading this effort), especially books
  • Wake each other up at night with ease and purpose
  • Run now

Michaela:

  • Is still bossy. Takes what she wants from the other two
  • Usually attempts to take off her nighttime pajamas before bed time
  • Loves to attempt to dress herself and has a unique sense of fashion.
  • Has taken up stealing her siblings’ bottles when they still have 1 oz to go, apparently just because
  • Pushes the limits more than the other two
  • Has super refined concentration skills. She usually doesn’t give up until she’s accomplished what she’s set out to do.
  • Is a quick learner
  • Doesn’t let just anyone pick her up
  • Has the most teeth so far. Lots of molars, too
  • Has an evil laugh after she’s has mastered a new skill
  • Can say Mum, yaya, baba, dada, ooooh, uh oh and hi
  • Loves to give you items around the house. Hopefully a sign she will be generous
  • Hates her teeth being brushed
  • Loves Cheetos
  • Can sleep 4 hours during a nap if the stars align
  • Loves to climb
  • Knows when a binkie is nearby by sound

Emma:

  • Still wakes up around midnight for no reason
  • Isn’t picky about who can pick her up
  • Has almost as many teeth as Michaela
  • Babbles constantly, especially in the morning when she wakes up
  • Has hair that goes down to her shoulders when curls are combed out
  • Has a super ticklish neck
  • Loves to try and repeat words
  • Makes the best attempt to string words together. Makes a great attempt at: kitty cat, ball, bottle, shimmy, hey baby, gummy, gimmie, bubble, neener, swish, tisk and good. Says mama, dada with ease
  • Wags her finger at us when lecturing us in frustration
  • Loves green peas (what’s up with that?)
  • Tends to be a picky eater at times
  • Still loves pizza sauce
  • Still times her naps to where she stays up after the other two pass out so she can have all the toys (and attention) to herself
  • Is the most reserved of the trio. Doesn’t cause trouble
  • Can throw an epic tantrum when she’s overly tired or annoyed with the other two
  • Loves it when the other two chase her around
  • Plays the victim well
  • Is the fearless explorer of the bunch. She will take off in public
  • Responds to her name
  • Hates having her teeth brushed and hair styled


Christopher 

  • Loves to pester his sisters
  • Can climb out of the “timeout” pack and play
  • Bruises easily
  • Is tall enough to reach on to counters and pull items off
  • Doesn’t like strangers, especially male ones
  • Loves to push things around the house
  • Is very active when he is winding down, kicking and burying his head in to things but soon after passes out
  • Will walk to his spot on the bean bag and take his bottle
  • Can say: mum, up, dada, baba and shakes his head “no” when he doesn’t want something
  • Loves to toss objects over the baby gate
  • Can kick balls and throw them
  • Doesn’t like to be left alone
  • Loves it outside  – will run when he realizes it’s time to come in
  • Usually requires a nighttime diaper change
