Lizzy and Rachel had their 2 year and 4 month check-ups today. I was a brave mom and did both at once, even though Lizzy (as always) threw a HUGE out of control screaming tantrum the whole time. Both girls are healthy, though. Lizzy is 36 inches tall and weighs 25 pounds, which is 99th percentile for height and 25th percentile for weight. Rachel is 13.2 pounds and 24.5 inches tall - which is almost identical to Lizzy at 4 months (13.7 pounds, 25 inches tall). Happy Thanksgiving everyone!

Lizzy's Birthday Cake

As you may or may not know, Lizzy's favorite movie is Finding Nemo, and her favorite character is Dory, so I did my best to make her a Dory birthday cake... here it is. I made the Dory on a piece of parchment paper out of melted white chocolate that I dyed "Dory" colors. I laid the parchment on top of a printout of Dory so I could just trace over it. Then I stuck it in the fridge to harden up, and then peeled it off and put it on the cake. I then outlined Dory with black cake decorating gel. I think it came out pretty good...

Lizzy is 2!!!

Wow, my baby is 2 today! It's amazing how fast they grow up. Now she's really a toddler and not a baby anymore... sniff sniff. Here are pictures of the birthday girl today, on her first birthday, and when she was a newborn.

Happy Halloween!

Lizzy really loved halloween. I let her wear her costume all day. We watched some halloween cartoons, colored some halloween pictures, carved a pumpkin and roasted the seeds, and went trick or treating. Lizzy didn't care about the candy - she didn't eat any of it, but she loved knocking on peoples' doors and saying "trick or treat" and "thank you". She also liked counting her candy. All the neighbors thought she was so cute!
