As you can see, her main problem is that she is not extending her thumb. The closest I have seen is her getting her thumb and index finger in her mouth.
A little closer
The other day I came home to the girls like this. Scott said that they were upset and as soon as he moved them so they were facing each other they immediately calmed down and were happy again. Love it!
Sonja posing with Caroline in the bumbo seats. Look at that double chin!
A bit of a difference in the length of their legs
Sonja always willing to help with the pacifiers. At least she puts it in their mouth now versus anywhere else on their face.
A lot of people ask us if we feed them at the same time or not. Well the answer is yes and this is how we do it. When they were smaller we had them on a pillow side by side on the couch propped up against the arm rest. When their necks became stronger and they were big enough we moved them to their bounces. This should work until they are holding their own bottles.

Luckily, I was able to make one of my aprons fit her.
You have to lick the utensils
I loved making the cookies with Gwen. What a perfect messy activity for a 3 year old. It made me excited thinking about doing this with my girls some day.

Chris and Kenny got the chance to finally meet the girls! Kenny had some great dance moves while holding Caroline which was a fun preview of him becoming a dad this summer. They were both great with the girls.
Caroline LOVED Annie. She would stare at her and when someone else was holding her she would still be looking at Annie. It was really cute.
Some more pictures of their room since I was finally able to get some time over the weekend when Scott was home to get some more of it done. As you can imagine, I don't get much done during the week when it is just me and the girls.
I saw these floor tiles at Babies R Us when I was pregnant and knew that if I had girls that I had to get it. I think it looks great and I love pink and brown together.
Right now the girls are sleeping together in the crib on the left...
...and the crib on the right is currently the home of their stuffed animals. It is kind of like the Noah's Ark of stuffed animals since we get everything in pairs.
Believe it or not, Addison was happy to be like this right before I took the picture.
Caroline smiling!!! The first smile I was able to get a picture of.
Kind of a weird one of Caorline but I think Addison is cute
This was kind of the end of a smile from Addison. It is actually only the second time I have seen her smile so I am surprised I caught it.
They have very pretty blue eyes that I started to notice this past week are getting lighter. It seems like they definitely have Scott's eyes which is what I was hoping for.

Caroline was born breech so as a precautionary measure she had an ultrasound done on her hips this past Monday to be sure she does not have a hip issue. I am not entirely sure what the issue is (Linnea I am sure knows more since Gwen had it) but if she did have this issue she would need to where a harness for several weeks as her bones grow. The alternative to this harness is having surgery as an adult so it is certainly worth the inconvenience of this harness when they are babies. The ultrasound was very interesting to me. There were 3 different angles that the Dr. looked at and one was a stress angle where they actually popped her hip out of the socket. They said it does not hurt when they do this and that was proven when Caroline fell asleep in the middle of it! I was told that she is a great baby which is something that we hear often of both Caroline and Addison. People at church are convinced that they don't cry....HA! They do, trust me. Anyways, the results are that Caroline's hips are perfect so there will be no issue or harness to deal with :)
Here they are right after a nap. Several weeks ago we moved them out of our room and into their's. They still sleep together which they seem to like.
ok, now to Anne and Pete's Wedding!!! Here is Gwen as the flower girl. Recognize that dress! It was great she could where it again. Here she is starting down the aisle...
And here she is going back. Hey, at least she was not sick this time.
The beautiful bride and her dad, My Uncle Roger.
The reception place was at a barn in Greyslake. It was a lot of fun and could not be more perfect for us. We were able to get a table up in the balcony in the corner so we could watch everyone and keep the girls in a corner so they could sleep. They were great the whole time so we really enjoyed ourselves.
The happy couple :) Welcome to the family Pete!!
Here is the lineup of carseats at playgroup last week. There were 6 babies 5 months or younger. I really enjoy Tuesdays now because it starts with playgroup and then I spend the rest of the day at Linnea and Cam's with Linnea and her girls. Elsa has been joining us too which has been great! It is nice to be somewhere else for a day.
I pulled out the bumbo chairs for the girls last week. They have pretty strong necks so they were fine in these chairs. They do look a bit small in them which makes them look so cute :)
