Kira and the toothbrushes.

Kira used to chew on toothbrushes when she was Kit's age but had given it up until her little sister started it up. Now both girls have decided it is the greatest thing in the world.

Winter is back.

After three days in the 50's and all of our snow pretty much gone, it went and snowed on us again last night. Our deck was completely clear yesterday and this was 8:00 am today.

Valentines Day

Look what Kit learned to do on Valentines Day! The girls actually behaving themselves. Kit really likes toothbrushes...I don't know. Kira playing peek-a-boo with the camera. Kira pretending to sleep...if only.... Valentines Day goodies!

Kit is 9 Months!

Kit on the rocking bear. Kit in her penguin shirt from her Uncle Jon and Aunt Katriina. Kit just showing off her standing skills.
Kit is nine months already! She is doing pretty good. She is just now getting over a pretty rough cold that she got almost two weeks ago. Poor girl! She stopped eating pretty much everything except for nursing but hopefully she will come around shortly. She is pulling herself up on everything like a champ...We are very proud. No steps yet but she is getting braver all the time about letting go. We went to the doctor today and both girls have ear infections!
At least Kit didn't need antibiotics but Kira is feeling pretty miserable :( We also found out that Kit has been measured on the boy charts and not on the girl charts so she has been fine on weight all along....until this checkup. The girl hadn't even gained a full pound :( But she has been sick for almost two weeks and hasn't been eating so we have to go back in for a weight check in a month. So Kit is weighing in at 14 lbs. 15 oz. (3%) and 26 1/2 in. long (20%). Other than that she is looking good! We just have to get some weight on her.

Kira is 29 Months!

Kira sleeping on the couch. Kira and I. Kira coloring. "Back off mom, I'm coloring!" Kira girl. Kira and bunny riding on the bear. Kira at Grandma and Grandpa Howards. Kira playing bongos on Bryan and Grandpa Howard.

Kira is 29 months. She is doing so good. I think she is coming down with a cold though :( Kit and I are both down and out with one so I think it is just a matter of time. She went for her first time to have lunch with Grandma and Grandpa Howard without anyone else! She did really good without mom and dad and we are pretty excited to know she can do ok without us for a bit. She is doing a little better with sharing though its more like trading. Kira grabs whatever Kit has and stuffs something else in her hands and calls it good....She will eventually get it.....right?
