Growth Spurt!

Paige and Morgan had their 2 year check up on Monday. They have had a huge growth spurt over the past 3 months. Their weights are actually on the charts now!

Paige

Weight: 22.9 lbs...7%!!!
Height: 32.5"
Head: 19.3"
Morgan

Weight: 22.4...4%!!!
Height: 31.25"
Head: 19.1"
The girls have really started 'growing up.' Here are a few factoids about them:
* They have really started talking over the past few weeks. My favorite is when they say peoples names. GiGi (Brookie) Ahwiwer (Oliver) Will (Jill) Uke (Luke) Mimi (Kim). These are just a few of my faves.
*They are our best eaters.
*Morgan has stopped throwing up all day, that is until this week. Days without incident has been a 0 all week. Go figure.
*They love to pretend play. With their dolls or with the kitchen. Very cute to watch.
*They want to be independent. Putting on their clothes, shoes, brushing teeth, feeding themselves. They actually do a pretty good job at all these things.
*They LOVE to give luvs.
*They still get into everything.
*They are becoming more defiant. Not my favorite thing.
*They love to do anything their brothers and sister do.
We love our girls and are so happy to have them here. It makes our life crazy, but I can't imagine not having our goofy Paige and our squatty Morgan.

Such a cute post! How I love Paige and Morgan. I noticed most everything on your list when I saw them last week... including the defiant part! But it all doesn't seem to matter once they give you one of their big grins and hugs. Gotta love that!

I can't believe how fast those girls change! Every time I see them it seems like they are so much older. I guess thats what happens when I don't get to see them every day. Sad.

Your girls are so much fun. I still can't believe how big they are getting. I love how they say Olivers name. It took me by surprise the first time I head them say it.

4% for Morgan....Didn't you tell me she was the stout one??? Very cute little girls. I am glad they are on the charts. We know the kiddos that hale from the Bentley's are off the charts in the opposite direction.

LOVE the photo of the girls! I just can't believe how little they are! I will be coming into town next Thursday and not leaving until the following Wednesday, so I will have to stop by and say hi sometime.

Fun! I'm glad they finally made it on the charts. They are so cute. The way they say other people's names is so cute. They sound so adorable.
