Today was a big day for us. Now that we are big nine month olds, we have very busy schedules!
First thing was our 9 month check up. All the nurses came in the room to see us, because they couldn't believe how big (and cute!) we are. We had to wait a long time - we entertained ourselves by tearing up the white paper on the examining table, pulling Grandma's hair and trying to knock the picture off the wall. Finally Mom gave us our bottles to drink while we waited and that kept us happy.
Dr. Lisa said we look great (of course).
We are huge! We're both 28 inches long. Charlotte weighs 19lbs 10oz, and Katie weighs 20lbs 8oz!! Charlotte can't say anything about Katie's weight though, because Charlotte has a huge head - 46 centimeters, which is like the 100th percentile for our age. Mommy said Charlotte has a big melon.
After the doctor we went to Short Hills Mall. We had a special big girl lunch at a nice restaurant called Legal Seafood. It was so much fun! We sat in our own high chairs and Mommy ordered us a baked potato to share, which we'd never had before - it was really good. Katie loved it! Charlotte didn't like it as much, even when Mommy dipped her pieces in butter.
Then Grandma gave Katie a roll to chew on and it was the greatest thing ever - she had to pry it away from us! We were really good girls, even if we left Cheerios and baked potato all over the floor.
When we got home we played with our lamb Mommy bought us after lunch at Babystyle. We love our lamb. She's really soft and kissable.
Next Mommy tried to take our Nine Month Pictures but we were pretty tired and cranky by then and were not very cooperative.
Grandma did get some smiles out of Katie by dancing around and shaking some toys.
Mommy and Grandma both kept saying they needed naps after the day with us.
Charlotte seemed to think the bear was touching her inappropriately ... she did not like where he was putting his paw!
After that Daddy got home from work and we had our dinner - pastina! It is so delicious, you should try it. Mommy loves it - we know because she keeps eating ours when she thinks we're not looking.
Then Daddy gave us our baths, and he put Charlotte in the tub with her diaper still on, then accidentally washed Katie's hair with dish soap. Daddy is SO SILLY. He'd had a really long day too.
We were sound asleep by 7:30, though each of us woke up at least once because when we cry Mommy sits in the glider with us and rocks us and kisses the tops of our heads and tells us how much she loves us until we fall back to sleep. She says that's the best part of her day, even though every time she sits in that chair with us she cries a little, because she thinks about Jack and how much she misses him. It's okay though, we miss Jack too. We understand.
And that's the end of our big day!
