Thank heavens cause I was wasting away. I was worried that I might have to tap into the reserves in my thighs. Disaster averted!
Our awful doctor in Houston had told us at the 6 month appointment that we needed to cut back on the amount of formula that we were giving the girls so that they did not end up gigantic sacks of lard (obviously a paraphrase.) Well apparently, D and I have overdone that as the girls have fallen off their growth charts. So now we will be increasing the formula back up to maintain their current, slightly lower, growth curve.
Everything else was fine. Apparently there is still no need to be worried about their limited mobility (I know you already told me that
Here are the current stats:
weight 20 lbs 8 oz (75th percentile)
height 29.75 in (above 95th percentile)
head 45.09 cm (75th percentile)
4 top teeth and 2 bottom teeth with an additional bottom just barely through the gums
weight 18 lbs (around 35th - 40th percentile)
height 28.25 in (75th percentile)
head 43.18 cm (25th percentile)
0 top teeth and 2 bottom teeth with 2 tops just barely through the gums
And here is a rather long video of Audrey and her moving. It is also quite cute to see her looking at herself in the mirror. And yes our playroom is always that messy. Please ignore my toe moving the pacifier if that disturbs you.

Riding a train at one of the parks...it was the girls first time on a train and they loved it!
Not only did 8-8-08 mark the opening of the Olympic games, but it was also our 10 year wedding anniversary! I know what you must be thinking, "10 years - why they must have been mere children when they got married." Indeed we were as illustrated by the picture below.
I can't wait to see what the next 10 years have in store for us!
