Reach Out and Touch Someone

Countdown to Christmas--5 days!!

The girls are doing well. We had their 4 month check up and here are the stats...

Addy measured 24 inches and is 13 pounds, 6 ounces. She is very active, spending her time training her legs for future bicycling. She has rolled belly to back but not vice versa and we believe she has beat her sister with the first tooth to break through the gums. She's phobic of needles, the vaccines didn't go over well. Oh yea, and when a big head marries another big head, you get a really big head, she is in the 90th percentile for head circumference. Poor thing, she'll never be able to wear hats. But, doesn't she have a beautiful smile??

As for her older sister, Lilly weighs 14 lbs, 12 oz and is 3/4 an inch longer than Addy. She has officially joined the 77th percentile of full term babies her age in weight, so we are off the preemie charts. She is our resident cuddler, she loves to be held. She also LOVES to watch TV, preferably sitting on someone's lap, but she also stretches her neck to see it from any angle. She gives full blown belly laughs now and believes her daddy is the funniest person on the planet.

Oh my gosh, they are so cute, you must want to just spend hours kissing those cheeks!! And way to go with the stats, ladies! They're geniuses, for sure.

P.S. Chase is also the result of two big-heads mating. His head is huge. It just hides underneath all that hair.

Addy is such an overachiever rolling around like that! Lilly cracks me up-she is looking at her toys so intently like she is trying to understand them. As for having big heads, it is a good thing, hats are out. You only really need to wear a hat to the Kentucky Derby and really who wants to go? Horses, gambling, things that are not good for babies.

I am not at all surprised that they are doing so well statistically speaking. I knew they would be freaking smart.

A-is there a baby Christmas themed outfit that you saw at any point and did not purchase? There's a lot of red going on in the Ash household!
