We brought Edie and Ella to the pediatrician today for their 2 month check up and dreaded vaccinations -- they each got FOUR shots. I kid you not -- FOUR...... it was much worse for mommy than them but they did do a little protesting. I have given them tylenol "just in case" but hopefully they will not feel too bad. On the way to the doctor Jon and I played a little guessing game to see who would come closer to their weights.
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!!!

Here is Rubi -- she did not get any shots. She is taking advantage of the quiet time -- nightime is rough around here.

Rubi making sure Edie doesn't have any leftover milk on her chin !!!

Just napping..................
