Thank you SO MUCH for voting for the girls! I can't believe the response from everyone here - you put us in first place! But now it starts all over again with the top ten so I have to beg and plead with you all to please please please vote ONE more time for Katie and Charlotte. This time we're #2 (on the left hand side of the page - it's really easy!). Thank you so much again!! We are all really excited. :)

The girls ARE super cute lately, I have to say. The terrible 18 month period seems to be easing up. Everyone is sleeping better, Katie is not throwing nearly as many tantrums, both of them are at least starting to listen to me, a little... sort of. Eating is going much better, not nearly as messy - even LaLa did GREAT with her fork tonight! A month ago I was ready to pull my hair out and now I am having so much fun with the girls again.
The best part is how much they're really starting to talk. Katie especially will try to say almost everything - you can see her studying your mouth, trying to figure out how to say certain things. Just tonight she pointed at Charlotte and said "LALA!" (though it sounded like Yaya). She also pointed at the tv and yelled "OBAMA! OBAMA!" (although it sounded like MOMAMA MOMAMA! Still, I was so proud!)
I tried to get a video of their mad verbal skills but of course they never like to perform on command and once the camera comes out, all they want is to grab it. The video is pretty comical though - you do get to hear a little bit of them talking, see them both climb all over me, Charlotte hit herself in the head with a duck, and finally everyone have a mini phony meltdown (all in under two minutes!).
And thanks again for voting!!
