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!


  1. Cute little Valentine's outfits! It is so sweet how Garet sucks her fingers. Glad we could see you all this past week....hopefully, we can enjoy some of this nice weather together sometime soon!

  2. I have been anxiously awaiting your weekly blog entry tonight and the wait was certainly worth while. You girls have really been busy this week. I see Garet is continuing her fascination with electronic gadgets and Kitt looks like she is well in control of some type of sophisticated piece of equipment. It looks like you both had fun with all your friends. Did you enjoy your time at the Botanical Gardens? I love your Valentine's Day outfits and hope you have a wonderful Valentine's Day! Love you lots! ...Grandpa

  3. Good evening Girls, How I loved "all" the pictures on your blog. It's obvious in one pictue that Garet is ready for bed - fingers in mouth and hand on side of face! Your mommy was smart to clear off all those shelves in the basement because you would have had a good time "destroying" the artificial cakes she had displayed there! Are those new "church" shoes you have on? I don't remember seeing them. It's obvious you had a fun week, and I hope the same is in store for you this next week. Happy Valentine's to you. Love you lots, Granny

  4. Happy Valentine's Day to the most beautiful cherubs of them all! Thank you for being the most recent loves of my life....

  5. Happy Valentine's Day to the Sweetest Little Girls I know and love! I am glad you shared your new weigh-in numbers. Sounds like you two are very nicely taking after your Mother in regard to food intake. You both looked so adorable in your Valentine's day outfits. I am glad you wore them to church so lots of people could see you both. I am glad you posted so many pictures of you with your friends. You all seem to play so nicely together.

    Until next week....
