Four months old yesterday! The girls alternated in their crankiness (they're still tag teaming mom.... one cries, the other smiles, then they switch.....) so it was tough getting their monthly pictures. I never did get any of the two of them together.
They both slept in their cribs last night from 11pm until 6:30 am, which means I got to sleep in my bed!! For over 7 hours!! Like a normal person!! Of course the fire department called at 3am because there was a huge fire that went to a 3rd alarm and PJ had to go in. I cannot just get uninterrupted sleep - but at least I didn't have to go out in the cold at 3 in the morning to fight a fire.
So, let's see how the girls are doing:
aka: Peanut Butter, Peanut, the Diva, the Pill, Dolly, SHAR-LOT
LOVES: Mommy, the exersaucer, the swing, standing up, Pinky Poodle (a stuffed toy), looking out the window, chewing on her hand, Hip Hop (no, seriously....)
DISLIKES: Being naked (too cold!), dirty diapers, tights, vibrating seats
Miss Kathleen (Katie)
aka: Jelly, the Princess, Daddy's Girl
LOVES: Daddy, baths, eating, books, standing up, scratching Mommy, pulling hair, chewing on her fist, Hula Monkey, smiling, laughing... and more Daddy
DISLIKES: not much....
Now honestly, tell me.... do these two look identical to you? The doctors all said while I was pregnant that they were identical (except for my OB who said, how can they tell for sure?) But they have never, from day one, looked the same. I asked Jack's doctor once if it was possible they weren't identical, even though they shared a placenta, had twin-to-twin transfusion, and at my first ultrasound they only saw 2 sacs.... she said absolutely. Only a DNA test could prove for sure they're identical. When we had the IVF done, they put 3 embryos in.... it amazes me to think that maybe all 3 took. Maybe I'm more fertile than I thought.
So, seriously, small weight difference aside.... they are not identical to me. Katie looks like PJ and Charlotte looks like me. Katie looked more like Jack than she looks like Charlotte. Doctors..... what do they know??
Missing Jack a lot the last few days.... I guess I should say missing him more than usual, because I miss him a lot every day. I want Jack to be four months old, I want him to have his first Valentine's Day, I want to take his picture sitting with his bear. It's not fair.
