A Mercedes Benz convertible (Uncle Keith's). Though you can't see it well in this photo, the smile on her face is quite large.
Puppet kisses: Storage tote rides:
I am a little disappointed by the photos in that I really didn't get many good ones of Lauren or the other birthday people. Here are the shots that I did get of the birthday girl (that I was allowed to post):
Blowing out the candles:
With Pappy Steve: Credit cards are a girl's best friend:
Sadly, I have no good photos of the other birthday people. Both Steve and Krissy are included in shots, but are either behind someone or with their back to the camera. And Amy apparently ducked out of the photos. I have part of her body - and the rest of her looks to be puposely hidden behind someone else. What's up with that? It's not like I post photos of people on the internet or anything. Oh wait... well, regardless...

Ethan's preschool sends home Scholastic orders. Turns out he loves them as much as I did. Of course Ethan LOVES books period, so it's no big surprise. Tonight, he sat on the sofa with crayon in hand and perused the forms.

The twins really enjoyed this ball area, which had holes with air rushing up on which you could suspend a ball. Collin loved pushing this cart of balls around and also playing with the bead curtain that made noise when you touched it.

The issue isn't so much that he stands in it (which is bad enough) as it is that he likes to sway back and forth and dance while standing, as well as some other not so safe things. A couple weeks ago he added a new spin to this standing in his highchair. He now thinks it's funny to sit on his tray... his tray of FOOD that is. Nice. This is especially interesting when we have pasta... but in all honesty smashed banana (to name just one other thing among many) is just as unenjoyable to clean off the butt of his pants.

We have had to learn to push the keyboard and mouse to the back of the desk when it isn't in use, due to our curious little ones.

Oliver is now:
23 lbs 5 oz = 20th percentile
32 1/2 inches = 50th percentile
Woo hoo! Oliver was born at 4 lbs 12 ozs and 17 inches long. He was two months old before he made it onto the percentile charts! And then it was only the 5 percentile. I remember the nurse saying at that appointment - "he's now the size of a newborn." He was 8 lbs 3 oz and 19 inches at two months of age.
Collin is now:
26 lbs 11oz = 60th percentile
34 1/2 inches = 90th percentile
Collin was born at 6 lbs 12 ozs and 19 inches long. He actually made it on the charts faster than Oliver, but to be fair they didn't start writing where until he was also two months old. At that point he was in the 25 percentile for all areas. Collin is definitely our most solid child... and by far the tallest at this age.
There was some excitement - for the first time EVER they are on the SAME dose of Tylenol and Motrin!! (hey, it's the little things people...)
All bundled up and ready to leave after shots... poor little guys...you can see the displeasure of the shots in their eyes.
On a side note... there are many things I have learned never to say "never" to 'before you are a mom'... and then some more that qualify as 'before you are a mom of twins'... and even more that qualify as 'before you are a mom of three children who are two years old and under' (or even four years old and under). One of those things is playing with the crate of mega bloks in the examining room and the other is just letting them lay on the floor there as well. It's all about survival people... there's always soap... and everything gets stripped and washed when we get home. Um... no offense to the two Dr. Amys reading this!
