Took the girls for their 2-year pediatrician appointment. They're really 25 months since birth now, but 22.5 months since their due date. Everything is fine, except for some delays due to their rough start. We're still waiting for Elisabeth to decide to say her first word, and we still have some questions about her hearing. And she gets hives at random times. Both girls have underbites, and Catherine will probably need glasses very early, and Elisabeth may possibly need another eye alignment surgery. But otherwise, they're perfect. They're little but they're feisty.
- Catherine: 21 pounds 1 ounce; 30.5 inches tall
- Elisabeth: 18 pounds 9 ounces; 29.75 inches tall
But they're a lot of fun. Today they were running around the house and I looked up to find that they were both, the two of them, STANDING up in the baby swing. Which is about 2 feet off the ground. How they both got in there I'll never know.
Then later when I'm eating dinner Catherine (who ate earlier) keeps coming up and bugging me for a piece of rice cake, which I'd give her and she'd run away and (presumably) eat it. I realized after about ten rounds of this that she was taking one bite of the piece I gave her and putting the rest in the garbage can, then running back for more.
