The girls seemed pretty happy to look at the fish in the aquarium and play in the front room. They did get a little hesitant once they were called back for the visit. That was short-lived once they saw the big girl scale. Riley even preformed a little dance for the medical assistant as she was waiting her turn.
We learned that Addison our baby A, is our skinny girl but the taller twin right now. She was 23lbs, 12oz and she is now 34.25 inches tall. Riley outweighs her twin by a whole pound now at 24lbs, 12oz and is 33.75 inches tall. Riley was born smaller and weighed less for quite awhile until she reached the same weight as Addie. They kept pretty close for most of that time until recently. You can really tell the difference when you pick the girls up. Addie is much easier to carry....you can really tell the extra pound difference. Maybe Addie will be our tall and skinny girl who takes after her dad and Riley will be our athletic strong girl like her mom.
Here are the pictures from their fun with Dr. W.
The girls were very excited to get some tongue depressors to play with and some stickers for being good. The visits are so much easier when there are no vaccinations involved.
We learned that the girls are right on track for development and have grown out of their prematurity. Woohoo girls!!!
Addison is in the 10-25th percentile for weight, 50th percentile for weight and 90th percentile for head circumference
Riley is in the 25th percentile for weight, 50th for weight, and 90th for head circumference.
I am so sad to learn the the girls will not go back for a well visit until they are 3 years old. They have graduated to the once a year recall. This is so strange after taking the girls in for visits so frequently over the last 2 years. I know we will check in at the office here and there with sick visits but hopefully not too often.

After some of the fun....the girls were worn out and they used their new sleeping bag chairs:
Later in the day after taking a short nap, Addie had some alone time with mommy and enjoyed playing with her new toys by herself while Riley slept.
My dad was able to win the girls the little balls that you will see in the pictures below. The girls are in love with these balls and they almost love the balls more than any of the presents they got. Really the chairs were the biggest hit of all though!
This was the beautiful and amazing tasting cake we had made. The girls had fun with their very own smash cakes
We look forward to this next year where we will learn more about the girls' personalities as well as venture into the terrible two's....wish us luck!!!

Here are there 1 year photos:
These 1 year smiles were the best!
Now I sit back and wonder where all the time has gone. We have made it another year as a family. The girls have taught us so much! They are growing each day and learning new things. Each week they are in to something new or trying something else, I can hardly keep up. They make us smile, laugh, and even cry now and again. I would not have it any other way, as this is the only way we know.
The girls had a blast at their party despite the fact that Addie had a fever. The day before the party she had a 103 fever but no other symptoms. On the party day it went down to 102 but we still don't know what caused it. She is teething but that seems a bit high for a teething fever. Addie did smile and have fun but some of the photos show that she wasn't completely herself. Hey, it was her party and she was going to cry if she wants to, right?
Happy 2nd Birthday Girls!!! Mommy and Daddy love you so much and we wish for another great year!!!

I hope to put their hair up like this more often and hopefully they won't be trying to pull the pony holders out like they have in the past.
Yay for a good hair day!!!!
