Family fun!

This was another busy week! At the beginning of the week Aunt LeAnn and Parker came to stay for one night, but Mommy didn't take any pictures! It was great seeing them though. No week would be complete without a trip to Hippo Hopp so there are a couple of pictures below of us playing there. We tried to go again later in the week but when we got there they were closed for a private party. We were very disappointed, although we didn't realize we weren't staying (and thus start crying) until we got in the car. We also went to the aquarium this week and had a lot of fun. Emily was teaching us all kinds of things. As you can see, Kitt was really interested in the sting rays and would have gotten in the pool if Mommy would have let her but Garet was not about to let go of Mommy's shirt. We also had a really special weekend because Granny, Grandpa, and Aunt Kristen all came to visit. We had such a fun time with them as always are so glad when they come. This was a short trip but we are looking forward to an even longer visit in March.

A walk at the zoo

So let's see.....on Monday, Emily and Frankie invited us down to play in their bounce house (it's like they have a part of Hippo Hopp in their backyard!!!). Kitt had an appointment so Mommy and Garet went down first. For about 30 minutes, Garet just sat inside. Emily was trying to get her to play with no luck. Daddy brought Kitt over after her appointment and as soon as she saw the place, she immediately started sliding down the slide. Once Garet saw Kitt was doing it, Garet finally started playing. We had such a fun time playing there. Monday was also Valentine's Day. Daddy helped us surprise Mommy with some chocolate dipped strawberries and a handmade card. There is a picture below so you can see it, too. The weather this week was finally nice so Mommy decided to take us to the zoo not once, but twice. Good thing for season passes as Christmas gifts! As you can see in the pictures we weren't really sure what was going on around us but we enjoyed the walk in the stroller. Right now it's like a walk in another neighborhood but we know we will come to enjoy it more and more each time we go! On Saturday, we went with Daddy for a really long walk in Piedmont Park and then we had lunch with our friend (and Mommy and Daddy's friend, too), Jillian. What a fun day! We are really excited about this week because we have some really special visitors coming to see us....Granny, Grandpa, Aunt Kristen and Uncle Mark will be here soon. Stay tuned for the update next weekend!

Happy Valentine's Day (a little early!)

What a week this has been! We have been to Hippo Hopp twice, had three play dates, been to the Botanical Gardens and been shopping. My, we are busy little girls. We forgot to report our latest measurements from our 15 month check up so here they are:
Kitt: weight is 21 pounds, 8 ounces and length is 31 inches.
Garet: weight is 22 pounds, 9 ounces and length is 32 1/8 inches. The doctor's words were "You would never know these girls were as premature as they were!!!" Glad all of our eating is showing. You can really see in the pictures how much Kitt is moving around. She even took her first step this week. She hasn't taken another one since but she will. Garet is also really climbing a lot, too, as you can see. Unfortunately, she took a fall or two this week. Clearly, all this climbing is wearing her out. There are lots of pictures of us sporting our special Valentine's Day outfits early. We wanted lots of people to be able to see them so we thought we would wear them today for church and shopping. Mommy tells us we have some cards and gifts to open tomorrow so that should be fun! We hope you have a great week....see you soon!
