Elle and Amber Update

So I just thought that I would give a little update on the girls. Amber is doing a little better everyday with adjusting to being a big sister. She slowly (very slowly) starting to let me get a few feet away from her without panicking. She has been a good helper when it comes to Elle, she loves to help if it is for Elle.
Now to Elle. She had a doctors appointment yesterday and has grown a lot. I was guessing that she would weigh around 7lb. 10oz. or so but I was way off. She weighed in at 8lb. 14oz. In the 3 weeks and 2 days since her birth she has gained 2 pounds. I could tell that she was chunking up but wow. She also grew in her length to 22 inches which puts her in the 91% for her age. So as you can see she is just getting bigger and bigger. Oh how time goes by too fast. She is starting to have a schedule which is nice. I am still adjusting to it myself. Eventually we will be able to be ready for the day before 10:30-11:00.
She wanted to wear this apron that was given to me while we made cookies. On her it looks like a dress, but she sure does look cute and domestic.

Just look at those cheeks!

Thank you for the two wonderful picture of beautiful girls. Now tell mr. plade man to post some more.
If you had not said it was an apron I would have gone on thinking what a wonderful dress maker someone was.
Elle is getting into a schedule and that means she has you where she wants you at feeding time.

@old&gray: cool those jets, buddy. I thought we had you used to a nice monthly upload schedule.

And if that apron were a dress, we'd have to ship her off to Texas, no?

The girls are so beautiful. Elle really is getting chunky, but it's that super-cute baby chunk...the kind that you just want to kiss! I agree with testmonkey, if that were a dress, texas would be the place to send her. ;)

Way cute pictures. I love the apron on Amber. She looks so dang cute with that little smirk to go with it! I am glad that someone else's child is/was in the 90th percentile. Keep it up Elle! I can't wait to meet her. One more month!

It was fun getting to play in nursery with Amber, I think that she liked having Sydney in there to play with her too! Maybe if I bring Sydney to nursery more Amber might have a better time in there. I hope that things start to calm down soon, let me know if you think Amber might be ready to come over and play, she is welcome anytime!
