Ladies first...so we'll start with Vanessa. She is such a little, sweet, cuddly baby. She is seriously a cuddler! (I love it!!!) She is a mama's girl. She has beautiful, long fingers. (Hopefully piano fingers!) She has strawberry blonde hair!!! She is really strong, she holds her own head up no problem and will sometimes stand! Now on to the stats:
Height: 22.25" (25%)
Weight: 9lbs (3-7%)
Head: 14.6% (3%)
She is very tiny, but starting to gain weight finally...she also is starting to have an apatite!!
I love this skit! My dear friend, Dianna Crest made if for her!
Also, love this blanket that my best friend made her...Diana Cotner (her future Mother-In-Law)
And if you can't tell, Vanessa loves the puppy Uncle Ryan gave her!
Now for our little gentleman! Sam is now 13 months old. He is growing so fast! He says, Mama, Dada, dog and Zeus (our dog's name). He knows 2 signs, 'more' and 'please'. He is great at walking and is starting to run. He's a Dada's boy, but Zeus is his best friend. He is super funny and has us laughing all day. He eats very well! He loves fruits, veggies and carbs. He eats meats, but will pick veggies over meat. He no longer uses a bottle or formula, but isn't a fan of milk. But because he eats so well, the doctor told me not to stress about it. He sleeps about 12 hours a night and takes 1, 2-3 hour nap. He already enjoys helping mommy...if I drop something he picks it up and hands it to me, and if it's Vanessa's he tries to give it to her. He has the worlds greatest laugh and makes everyone around him happy!
Here are his stats:
Weight: 26.2lbs. (95%)
Height: 33.5" (off the charts!!!)
Head: 19.1" (95%)
The nurse actually measured Sam, went out to put it in his chart and came back in to measure him again. She said there was a huge spike and she wanted to make sure she read it right. When she did it a second time, he was actually 1/2" taller!
We love being parents, but even more so to these amazing kids! We feel so blessed and are enjoying watching every moment! It's kind of funny having such a big baby and such a tiny one! Sam is already such a good big brother. (He was really concerned today every time someone was holding Vanessa other than me) And Vanessa smiles at Sam all the time now!
