My guess -- Edie 8 1/2 pounds
Ella 6 1/2 pounds
Jons guess -- Edie 8 pounds
Ella 6 pounds 13 ounces
It's a darn good thing neither of our jobs require much estimating -- WE SUCK AT IT!!! Real stats are...........
Edia 10 pounds 13.8 ounces and 23 3/4 inches long (birth was 19 1/2 inches and 6 pounds)
Ella 8 pounds 9.2 ounces and 20 1/2 inches long (birth was 17 1/2 inches and 4 lbs 10 oz)
Boy were we way off huh!!!!!!!!!
When we had our professional pictures done I had this memory board made for Jon -- those who know us know that he is quite the Alabama Crimson Tide fan -- it turned out awesome.
My good friend Mrs Solomon, her daughters and friends from the East coast had a shower for Edie and Ella this weekend -- the theme was "books and bonnets". It was wonderful. We got so many great childrens books and hats for their bald little heads. The theme was a great idea because everyone brought their favorite childrens book so we got some amazing books for them to have read to them. They also made this diaper cake which I loved --- whoever started this diaper cake idea is a genius. What a great gift/centerpiece.
Here is Edies (chubby) thigh -- showing off her band aid after getting 2 of the 4 shots in the left thigh.
Here is Ella snuggling with her daddy after getting shots -- bless her little heart!!!
