It's been two months since my last post!!! I'm sure whoever reads my blog, though, can understand my time is now FULLY occupied by my two angels. As I'm writing this, Emma is upstairs napping and Maggie is sitting next to me in her "fishy chair" shooting me the biggest smiles ever...believe me, it's hard to concentrate with this right next to me!
Trying to catch up will be difficult since so much has happened in the last two months. The girls are both doing great! Maggie is healthy and happy and is growing like crazy! She's 2 and a half months now. At her 2-month checkup she was off the chart weighing in at 14 lbs. 6 ozs., and in the 90th percentile in height at 23.5 inches! Emma, actually, was 13 lbs. 6 ozs. at her 2-month, so exactly one-pound difference! Maggie is "talking" (okay, cooing) up a storm. I think she's going to be a little talker early on. She holds her head up like a champ and can hold herself up rather well when laying on her tummy. She rolls from front to back, but I consider that kind of cheating, though, since she kind of falls over anyway. Most consider it rolling, so I'll take the bragging rights. When she rolls from back to front, though, watch out!
Emma's new obsession (among others) is playing on the computer. She's mastered using the mouse and plays all kinds of games by herself on the Playhouse Disney and Noggin websites. We also picked up a Blue's Clues game to load onto the computer for when the internet is acting up. There's no telling a two-year-old that the router's not working too well today.
Our Thanksgiving was really really nice. We were able to see some of Ryan's family who we don't get to see too often; and although Marshall and Annette's house was crowded, it was really great having everyone together. I love the family I've married into! We also went to my mom and dad's, which it's just us, them and Grandpa...very low-key in comparison, but still great!
I can't wait for Christmas. What a totally different feeling there is this time of year when you have kids to celebrate with/for. Although Emma still isn't quite understanding of it all, it's still fun. I can't imagine what it'll be like next year when she has full understanding. I can't wait to bake cookies for Santa (and then stay up to eat them)!
Here are a couple more recent pictures....I'll try to post right after Christmas, if not sooner!! Everyone have a safe and happy holiday season!
