Been a while…


I really read a lot of blogs but cannot seem to post a lot on my own. I think that I am boring and do not really know what to say.  Life is busy, but whose isn’t?  The girls are growing by leaps and bounds in both the physical aspect and verbal.  They are both saying 25-30 words, and they seem to add several words a day.  One day it all just seemed to start falling into place.  I have to admit that we are not done with the bottles, but we ARE down to 2 a day…am and bedtime.  Slowly but surely.  They are not very into the cups.  Avery drinks more than Aidan and neither will drink milk from the cup.  They will both only drink water.  They are doing good with food but like the same things over and over.  I need to branch out but they do not like things all mixed.  They like steamed veggies, chicken, and fresh fruits.  They eat some organic crackers and yogurt.  They are starting to interact more, both good and bad.  Avery will not let aidan wear a bow in her hair, she like to pull it out when she sees it and takes some hair with it.  They went to their 15mth appt 5 weeks late and it went well.  They got the first of two Hep A shots.  We are putting the varicella and MMR off until 2ish.  I think that they need a HIB and pneumococcal booster.  Phew, the thought is exhausting.  Aidan weighed 22lbs 6oz (35th percentile) and was 32 inches tall (81st percentile).  Avery weighed 21lbs (15th percentile) and was 31.5 inches tall (73rd percentile).  Their weight gain has really slowed.  Avery was in the 23rd percentile last time, so she has dropped off a bit.  Aidan was in the 50ish percentile and has dropped off a bit as well.  Nothing to be concerned about as they are moving around like crazy.  I am having a hard time getting the calories in them though.  I think that they are both going to be girly girls.  They love clothes and shoes.

    Look at how cute they are in those tutus!

    Food is hard here, too. They eat, but it is usually the same old thing over and over with no more than a bite or two of new foods occasionally. I am trying not to obsess over it, but…well, I am sure you understand how frustrating it can be!

    I love those outfits! THey are getting so much older so quickly…don’t you wish you could slow it all down? I totally do with Brynn. Food is such a pain sometimes. I have enough trouble figuring out what to make for us let alone her. Brynn has wanted to eat butternut squash ravioli for 2 weeks straight now. I’m starting to think she might turn orange 🙂

    What a pair. They are too cute.
    If they are eating that….who cares. Keep it up. They don’t mind it and it’s getting them all of their vitamins and minerals…good on ya. 🙂
    They’ll branch out one day.
