3 month olds and family pics

Shayna and Sophie turned 3 months old on the 27th but we forgot to take their board pictures so they are 3 months and 2 days instead :)

Sophie Rose

Shayna Maleah

I love all of Sarah's crazy sleeping positions.
This is how I found her during naptime the other day!

The girls were given chef hats from a dear family friend. Sarah loves wearing hers.

We had a ceremony to officially give the girls their hebrew names.
Here is a picture of us with the Rabbi and the girls proud grandparents.

Updating Playroom

Yesterday, we went to IKEA to get a storage bin/bench for the playroom. Sarah likes pulling out the drawers and finding some toys she hasn't played with in a while.

Sarah's 15 month update

Today we went to the pediatrician for Sarah's 15 month check up. Here are some of her updated stats:
20lbs 14oz - 20-25th percentile
30.5" long - 50th percentile
Everything is looking good. She has become an avid walker and now just needs to master getting up without holding on to something. She is a pretty good eater.. some of her favorite foods cheese (and anything made with cheese - pasta with butter and parmesan, grilled cheese, cheese quesadilla, mac and cheese). She eats an egg everyday for breakfast and loves applesauce, bananas and most fruits and melons. She is now drinking whole milk and is no longer on formula. She can point to your nose and head when asked (and sometimes her own) and calls anything she places on her head a hat (that one's my fault :)
She is a very good big sister. She tries to give the girls bottles and pacifiers and likes to help burp them. They get slapped in the face every now and then, but what are you gonna do?
She is still completely obsessed with her books, especially the ones that are in sets in boxes because she likes to take them out and put them back in. She loves Sesame street and loves her chattering Elmo and Cookie Monster dolls. She loves giving hugs to all of her dolls and stuffed animals and has become a huge hugger / cuddler in general which I love! She still sleeps with her favorite pink blankie, Mr. Bear, or Bitty Bunny.
She is getting into everything which is why we are currently working on baby proofing the house. If we accidentally forget to close a bathroom door..she's in heaven cause it is apparently REALLY fun to go splish splash in the toilet! :)
I am sure there are a thousand more thinks to mention, but I am going to leave it at this for now.

Happy Anniversary - Sorta

Yesterday was our wedding anniversary. Unfortunately, Sherri was sick, so we didn't really do much. We were going to go out tonight to a restaurant I booked about a month and a half ago, but I needed to change the reservation, so we will go in about a month and a half.

On the bright side. It seems that the birds nest in our atrium has successfully brought forth a new generation of whatever bird this is.
Even more exciting, Sarah decided to give us a great anniversary present. She's officially a walker now. She was taking a few steps before (to people that would catch her), but yesterday, she decided she could walk on her own to whereever she wants to go. She still goes on her knees, but she is definetly a walker now - She did a lap around the kitchen table and also can stop, and turn around. Yeah Sarah!

2 Month Check-Up

Today Shayna and Sophie had their 2 month check ups and first real round of vaccinations.

Here are the basic stats:
Shayna: 10 lbs 2 oz, 22.5 in 25th percentile for weight
Sophie: 9 lbs 11 oz, 22.5 in 25th percentile for weight
Shayna is still throwing up on a regular basis but apparently has a regurgitation issue as opposed to a reflux issue since she only throws up during or right after a feeding and it is not after every feeding. We will be trying a new formula (enfamil AR) to see if that helps (we will also try Soy if the A.R. doesn't help). She should grow out of it by 6 month to a year (hopefully).
Sophie's "bindi" (her strawberry hemangianoma) seems to be reaching it's growth peak. It should stay this size for a while and eventually start to shrink until it disappears (somewhere between age 2-4)
