To Daddy:

Dear Daddy,

I just thought I'd let you know what your daughter just said.

How does that make you feel?

I think this means that she is starting to get it (or at least we hope so).

Catching up on check-ups and comparables if you wish

So awhile back (January 12th to be exact) I took both girls in for their check-ups.

Elizabeth's 2 year Stats:
Height: 35 inches (78th percentile)
Weight: 26 pounds (39th percentile)

She insisted she keep on her boots during the appointment, and she did most of the time.

She is developing well. She loves music and picks up songs quickly. Her vocabulary is increasing daily and I'm always amazed at what she is learning to communicate to us.

A day in the life of Elizabeth:

8:30-9:00am- Wake up and eat breakfast
9:30-12:30- Play time
12:30-1:00- Eat lunch
1:30-4:30- Nap
4:30-8:00- Play time with dinner somewhere in the mix.
8:00-8:30- Bedtime.

Hannah Kate's 2 month stats:
Height: 24 inches (87th percentile)
Weight: 11lb 7 oz (45th percentile)

Elizabeth's 2 month stats (incase you were wondering. I was):
Height: 22 1/2 inches (50th percentile)
Weight: 9lbs 14 oz (25th percentile)

Hannah Kate's 4 month stats:
Height: 26 inches (98th percentile) I didn't believe the nurse when she said that so I asked her to measure her again. Sure enough she is 26 inches.
Weight: 13 lbs (39th percentile)

Elizabeth's 4 month stats:
Height: 24 inches (50th percentile)
Weight: 13 lbs 9 oz (50th percentile)

A day in the life of Hannah Kate (since 12 weeks):

8:00am-Wake and Eat
8:30-10am- Play time
10:00-12- Nap Time
12:00- Eat
12:30-2- Play time
2:00-4- Nap time
4:00pm- Eat
4:30-6pm- Wake time
6:00-6:45pm- Cat nap
7:00-8pm-Wake time
8:00- Eat, then straight to bed.

There are certainly differences between Hannah and her big sister. One big thing...Hannah's a thumb sucker.

Elizabeth prefers her 2 middle fingers:

Hannah's hair isn't as curly as Elizabeth's.

And though, Elizabeth's eyes started off light, they were not as light as Hannah's.

Ok. So this ridiculously long post to say:
We are praising God for the health of our daughters who are similar, yet distinct. They both are gracious gifts that we daily thank our Maker for.
