9 February, 2014: 9 months unadjusted/6 months adjusted

Happy to report the girls have been thriving! ¬†They are now six months adjusted age and almost 9 months unadjusted. Tasha is a whopping 15 lb 11 oz and Kat is 14 lb 5 oz. That’s impressive growth for two girls who were two pounds not that long ago!!!

Tasha now looks like this:

Kat now looks like this:


They are more interactive with us, with each other, and with Bruno.

Kat telling Tash about her tricks…


Tash’s response…


…and then deciding the logical thing to do is stick her finger in Kat’s mouth.


OK. Maybe the girls are interacting with Bruno (grabbing at his fur as he strolls past) but he may not be so interested in interacting with them quite yet. Food droppings have helped so we think it’s just a matter of time.


The big “new” event of the last few weeks has been the introduction of pureed food. ¬†Carrots, sweet potato, and avocado were all met with Bollywood-caliber dramatic grimaces and face scrunching looks of disgust. Banana was more successful. On every front, Kat has been more willing to open up her mouth and receive the spoonful of food, whereas Tasha’s mouth is more like a bank vault. We knew they were very different personalities from the get-go and watching how they deal with the newness of life at this young age has been tons of fun.

What do we do with this stuff??


oh….this is not much better…
