Heads Up!

This has been quite a busy week at our house. Both girls finally figured out how to lift their heads when on their bellies! Holly is now rolling over both ways (and can get her arm out), and Eden has twice rolled from her back to belly. Holland can sit up with a little support, and I know it won't be long until she is sitting unassisted.

The girls had their 9-month checkup on Wednesday. I can't believe it's been that long! Holland weighed in at 12lbs 12oz, and Eden is 11lbs 13.5oz. Their pediatrician was pleased with both of their progress and once again reminded us not to worry about Eden trailing behind:) It may just be that she will always be more petite. We got the go ahead to start the girls on rice cereal. That's what we're looking forward to this weekend. Will keep you all posted:) Holly had a dermatologist appt today and he said that she looks great and we should keep on doing what we're doing. The only thing we are going to change is to start washing her hair with Neutrogena T-Gel shampoo. The mineral oil has really helped the dryness and flaking, but her head is still itchy and she is always scatching it up. The whole routine is very time consuming and frustrating, but it's working so we'll keep at it!

Aren't they just adorable in these pics??? They're so cute I can't stand it! I just wanna eat them up:)

My brother and sister-in-law are having a BOY!!!!!!!!!!!

I have to agree with you, they are sooooo adorable in these pics and we all just want to eat them up. Before we know it they'll be old pro's at turning over and holding their heads up and be sitting and crawling! Congrats to Nick and Sabrina, what's the due date? Hope you have a great weekend and they enjoy the cereal. Love to you all, Liz

Oh, the babies look so sweet! Great milestones on the head-lifting, rolling and nice new weights. You go, girls!

Just wanted to wish you a happy Mother's Day!

The girls are so cute. I love the pictures of Holland sticking her fingers in Eden's mouth. That will change once Eden gets a tooth! What big stuff they are rolling, sitting, holding their heads up so nicely! Now the milestones will really start to fly by. Brady never did roll tummy to back, he skipped it and went to scooting then to crawling. All kids are different, aren't they? Don't worry if they cereal doesn't go very smoothly. It will seem like a lot of work at first, and a bit over-whelming! But, then one day it will just go so quickly and smoothly and from then on out it will be a snap! Hang in there and get the washclothes (for baby and YOU) ready.
Love, Kris
