Big Girls

We went to the doctor's today because we were concerned about the rash that Elena has on her face and the fact that both girls have started a new (loud!) type of crying. It turns out that Elena has baby acne and that babies just cry (I'll bet you already all knew that) and so we have nothing to worry about. The exciting news for us was the weigh-in. Ready? Clara is 8 lbs 1 oz and Elena is 8 lbs 11 oz!! Okay, so now they're the birth weight of lots of other babies, but it's exciting to us, especially since it means that Elena has nearly doubled her birth weight. Keep growing, girls!

You guys crack me up with your "what? babies crying? what the hey hi?" ways. Perhaps they're louder because they're bigger? You know, more lung capacity and resonance, etc. I hope you've gotten that Harvey Karp DVD by now, it's what kept our babies calm. HE IS A MIRACLE WORKER, I TELL YOU!
