Karsyn in Wonderland

Karsyn went to a fabulous Alice in Wonderland themed birthday party on Sunday. Her friend, Savannah, hosted a Mad Hatter Tea Party. Karsyn had so much fun and even met a few new friends. She's starting to become quite the social butterfly. She loved drinking from the tiny tea cups and eating the scones.

Chase has just recently started to clap his hands. Houston loves having his own private cheering section.

Valentine's Day

We had a wonderful Valentine's Day. Karsyn got a few fun new things. We love excuses to spoil her. She also went on her first 'cousin sleepover' at Aunt Renee's. She made it the whole night and had a lot of fun. We think Renee should take all three next time!

Houston FINALLY has teeth!

After months of agonizing pain, sweet Houston finally got his bottom two teeth. They came through within a day of each other and are as pretty as can be. They were well worth the wait!

"I play painting!"

Karsyn has the artistic streak that I lack. She loves to draw. She loves to paint. If it makes a mess and involves pretty colors and construction paper, she's all about it. She has so many fun talents that it's exciting to give her the tools to explore them.

9 Months Old

The twins had their 9 month check up yesterday. Besides being squirmy, they did really well. They didn't have to get immunizations this time, but had their hemoglobin checked via a finger prick. Neither boy made a peep. We have such tough little monkeys. The doctor thought the boys looked wonderfully healthy. She also had no concerns with their development. Yay!

Chase and Houston are pretty much 75th percentile across the board. Chase weighs 22 lbs and is 2' 5". Houston is 21.5 lbs and 2' 4.5". We are so fortunate our children have had good health.

Grandma Pam and Great-Grandma Helen picked up Miss Karsyn on Tuesday afternoon for an adventure. We miss her like crazy, but I think she's having too much fun in Watertown to come home anytime soon. The last I heard, she was eating popsicles and dill pickles with Papa and Kale. HOPEFULLY we'll get her back before she turns 3.
