New tricks

Charlotte seems like she will be crawling any day now.  She gets up on all fours and propels herself forward while her arms and legs go out.  She almost looks like a baby deer that is just figuring out how to walk.  Its pretty cute.  She also loves to chase after this toy that makes noise.  You push down on it and it vibrates around the floor.  If you put her a few feet away from it, she will scoot over to it and chew on it for a bit.  When the music starts on that thing, she is very determined to get it! 

Evelyn on the other hand is pretty happy laying on her tummy.  She kind of reminds me of a turtle when you put it on its back and it just wiggles its legs around and can't go anywhere.  She just lays on her tummy and randomly throws out her arms and legs and just wiggles around.  She will then put her arms down and put her head up to look around and see what's going on.  I should probably take a video just to capture how funny and different they both are right now.  Evy is just as content as can be not getting in the crawling position. 

Rolling on the other hand is a different story.  The girls just love to roll around on the floor.  They will play with their toys, try and pull the kitty's fur out and get licks from the puppy.  They love to roll on top of each other too.  Its like a big pile of babies! I think they like being near each other.  They really haven't been out of the same room since they were born. 

I am just so happy that they are chunky healthy little girls.  Everyone says, "They are so big for twins!" As far as I know, twins are only generally smaller than full term babies because they usually aren't full term!  Well, I am proud that I carried those girls to 38weeks and 1 day!  They were big and healthy when they came out and are still big and healthy.  They are good eaters, sleepers, and are meeting their developmental milestones each time they visit the doctor.  I just hope they continue this pattern.

I went to an outlet mall today and ended up talking to a lady with her granddaughter.  She said that she was 9 months old and only 13lbs!  To put things into perspective, Charlotte is close to 17lbs and Evelyn is about 19lbs at only 7 months!  The grandma said she was only 5lbs at birth and was having a hard time gaining weight and such.  I guess I just feel lucky that (so far) the girls have been right on target for everything.
