New tricks

Today the girls went to the pediatrician to get their monthly dose of Synagis for RSV. They weighed 21 pounds each! The doctor didn't check their length, but they were 27 inches last time. We might try measuring them ourselves and see if they've grown. BECAUSE of their new weight, it is time to change from the infant carrier car seats to the next step up because the carriers are only approved for babies up to 22 pounds! So we chose the Safety First seats for 22-40 pound infant/toddlers and 40-100 later on as a booster seat. We will get a LOT of use out of them and they are middle of the road in terms of price. Of course this means no mean nifty snap the carrier intot he stroller anymore. We have to take the babies in and out of the carseats. A new little challenge when we have to go out!

In other baby news, Lily cut her too bottom teeth! And Eve has one coming through on the bottom, but too little to take a picture of yet. Both girls roll all over the floor and both can sit up without support until they topple over. They can't GET into a sitting position alone, but one step at a time, right!? They both make new funny faces and are doing a lot more interacting with toys on their seats and on the ground with them. They seem to realize that some actions cause toys to make a sound and try to do it. They are 8 months or so actual age and about 6 1/2 months adjusted. We go back to the developmental pediatrician in April and we'll know how they measure up developmentally then. Hopefully, they'll be caught up! Wouldn't that be awesome!

Here are a few pictures:

For Karen, who was looking for the cords...

Karen, I heard you were looking for pics of the girls' cords and I moved them into the photo album so you should find them if you click on the "Photo Album" link on the right side of the page. I realized they weren't in the baby's subalbum on my Photobucket account! Let me know if you have a problem finding them: kat2032@verizon.net!

No time for more posting but I'll get to it...I really will...blame the twins for rolling all over the floor at the moment and Eve getting stuck under her activity bouncer seat...
