As I suspected, my little girls are not very little at all.
They are both (give or take a small amount) 34 pounds and 37 inches tall.
Off the charts. Over 95th percentile for height and weight.
It's awesome. The pediatrician said they are growing great... do you think??? They were THREE POUNDS and like 17 inches long when they were born. They definitely caught up.
She did say she thought we should switch to 1% milk though. Which is PROBABLY a good idea.
The doctor wasn't concerned with Charlotte's talking, since she does talk and her words are very clear. She said give her a little time, she will probably have a word explosion within the next few weeks.
I can't tell you what it feels like to walk out of a doctor's appointment with NO problems, no follow ups or worries. Where everything is fine. It feels impossibly wonderful. I'm not sure when I'll be able to take the girls to the doctor and not feel an impending sense of doom, not be waiting for the bad news.
They do look awfully healthy though, that's for sure.
Katie has a crazy love of hot spinach artichoke dip. No, really, she does.
LaLa and her favorite, mac and cheese. Not sure if this is a face of bliss or too much macaroni.
Another favorite food, ketchup. Please notice the spinach dip covered fingers.
What? Dessert?? OKAY!
Now, about the Bump Blog Contest. What a mess.
When I received the email from them last night telling me what happened it was not a shock to us at all. The contest had been hacked!! REALLLLY? You mean the fact that a couple of the blogs (NOTE MINE, just by the way) got almost 700,000 votes between them overnight was not legitimate? That's shocking. I had told PJ that afternoon, forget it.... we're done. This is ridiculous and unfair and I don't want anyone else wasting their time on it. I feel terrible about all the time and energy so many of my friends and family expended on voting.
I think the new version of the contest (where people submit a note about their fave blog and the Bump Editors will decide the winner) is much better, much fairer, and more about the best blog and not the most obsessive voters. But I won't ask anyone to do anything else, because you have all already done far too much. I was (and still am) THRILLED to have won the Multiples Award. Reading some of the things people wrote about this blog literally brought me to tears. Such amazingly kind words. I am really really touched and again already feel so lucky. I have already won a thousand times over.
