15 Month Check-up

Today we took the girls to their 15 month check-up. Our doc thinks the girls are doing awesome. Abby weighed in at 21 lbs 4 oz and Chloe weighed in at 19 lbs 7 oz. They are nearly 2 lbs apart but the only way you can tell is when you pick them up. Abby is more solid feeling while Chloe is petite. He looked in their mouths for any teeth and he did not seemed at all concerned with their lack of teeth for 15 monthes. He thinks they are going to get the fangs in first. You can see Chloe's are ready (two small white spots) so we think she will get hers first. Abby has definite ridges but no real white spots. We will wait and see. They got three spots today including the H1N1 and took them like champs! We don't have any official walkers yet but they are using their strollers to walk all over our house. Abby can turn herself when she gets stuck on something and enjoys circling the dining table. We've been teaching our girls sign langauage for about a month or so and the girls have really picked up on it. They know the signs for milk, more, baby and eat/food. Abby actually crawled up to me on Sunday and did the sign for milk and when I got her milk out of the fridge she was so happy. I am amazed everyday by how much they undersatnd what we are saying and doing. They know where their tongue, nose, eyes and hair are when asked. They've been picking up more words like hi, eye, cat, Chloe says tiger when pointing to Winnie the Pooh's Tiger. When you ask them if they got mail today they go and look in their little mail box. I could go on and on but I'll save some others for later!

Today I started packing for our Thanksgiving trip down to Grandpa and Grandma's. We leave Wednesday after Joe gets off work!

Sunday at the Park!

We discovered they remodeled a small park near us and had to go check it out for ourselves. The girls were not fond of the swings which seems weird because they loved swinging just a bit ago, but they loved going down the slide and playing in the mulch. Can't wait for them to be running around playing on everything!

Jax Arboretum

Over the weekend we took the girls on their first hike. The weather was beautiful and what a nice breeze we had. We went to the Jacksonville Arboretum which has only been open a year. Its about a 8 minute drive from our house and has a few short hiking trails. It isn't complete yet but it made for a nice short trip. The girls rode in their wagon and fun was had by all. We even ran into another family with twins. Check out some photos from our day.

I Caught Chloe on Camara...

Like I told you in an earlier post this week, Chloe has started walking with her stroller. I caught her last night on our Flip and Abby too! Joe hadn't seen them walk for a few days and was very impressed on how well they are doing. Who knows Chloe may walk before Abby.

Chloe Strolled

Yesterday after watching Abby using her stroller Chloe crawled over to the other one pulled herself up pushed the stroller away and took about 5 steps. She did so awesome! I haven't caught her on video yet but I will!

I took the girls to a play date this morning at a fellow Jackpott's house. She has 10 month old twin boys. The kids played and then we took them on about an hour walk. The weather was awesome! It was funny, my girls are definitely 100% girl...shy, timid and don't play very rough. Her boys were adorable, about the same size as my girls and very happy. I'm looking forward to our next play date!
