Happy New Year!!

What an exciting year 2014 was and looking forward to see what 2015 has in store for us!  Thankful for all the blessings.  I still can't believe I was pregnant a year ago with twins and didn't know what to expect. And to know they made it here, full-term, safely, and they are girls still leaves me giddy.  My cup runneth over.  And to watch Luke grow up into such a sweet, loving boy - it's amazing. 

The girls turned 9 months old on New Year's Eve.   Backward crawling, playing with toys, sitting and rolling around.  Oh, the life of a baby.  Such happy girls- always wake up with a smile on their faces. 

Had their check up yesterday - here are the stats:

Riley -  weight: 19 lbs 8 oz  - 53%
            length:  27 3/4 - 54%
             head:  43.7 cm  - 39%

Vivian- weight: 19.35 lbs - 58%
              length: 28 inc- 62%
              head:  43.3 cm- 28 %

Little peanut heads!  4 bottles of 7 oz and an occasional meal, but I need to increase that.  They are still great sleepers.  7:30 ish is bed time and don't wake up until 6:45ish. 

Both of them have their 2 bottom teeth and 2 top teeth and working on some more.  Feel like Vivian might be the one who gets in a little trouble.  She's more mobile and seems up for anything.  Riley is a little more cautious and a little more sensitive around people.  Has the saddest sad face if she's sitting there and you walk away.  

They had a great first Christmas - didn't know what was going on but seemed to enjoy it!!  Actually we all had such a wonderful Christmas (except for Daddy who was super busy moving his company's office!) Weaver peanut butter ball making on Christmas Eve morning, Christmas Eve at my parents',  Christmas Day at my Grandma's,  day after Christmas @ the zoo with the Weavers, and Weaver Christmas Saturday the 27th!!  Man, it was exciting and fun celebrating with all the cousins, aunts, uncles, and grandparents.

Luke is AWESOME still with them and he's becoming quite the encourager and cheerleader:  "Mom, sister is crawling!!  Go sister!!! "   "Come here, sister!!  You wanna play??"   It's so sweet!!   He had a rough November, crankiness, not sleeping well, but he seems to be back on track.  He's so excited for his 3rd birthday!! He wants M&M's, cupcakes, and dinosaurs.  Pretty easy.
