And the winner is . . .

No one! GH and I were both totally off on the twins' weights. They weighed in at:

Maddie: 14lbs 7oz
Riley: 14lbs 14oz

More than double their birth weights on both counts. They are getting big, just not as big as we thought.

All went well, even the shots. I'd been pretty nervous about the appointment because GH couldn't go with me and I was worried about consoling two unhappy campers post-shots. But we have a great pediatrician who helped out and got one of the nurses to help, too. It all went off as well as it could have, really. The kids cried while getting the shots (Who can blame them?) but calmed right down with some holding and nursing. The day care didn't call me, so they must not have been too unhappy this afternoon.

I was pleased that my pediatrician did not push starting solids too early and agreed that if Riley sleeps better in his car seat for now, let the man sleep in his car seat. She feels that he will outgrow that need to feel confined, but until then, no reason to torture him or us. Hooray!

I can't wait to go home and see them and GH. Only 15 more minutes at work.

For fun, here's a picture of me and the twins taken just yesterday. I think this is the first time I've posted a picture of myself online. Huh. Here I go, throwing caution to the wind!

As mentioned, the glasses are fabulous. I love that they match your sweater. I've been very into orange lately. I'll post a photo of the portfolio I'm constructing once I finish it. Orange and green, but it will look better than that sounds.

Your kids are so cute! And you look great, you don't even look tired.
