So once again I've been busy at work...which means blog updates are few and far between.  I love being busy at work, but I do regret not posting more.  So once again, sorry for the lack of updates.

So what's happened since I last updated?  

Well, my baby turned 2!  How did that happen?  Genevieve is embracing her 2 year old self.  She says she is a big girl, but she still likes to be my baby.  She wants to do everything, and I do mean everything, herself.  She is stubborn and determined and funny and smart and beautiful and I love her to pieces, even when she makes me want to pull my hair out. 

What about my other baby?  Well, she turned 4.  And there is nothing baby-like about her anymore.  Annabella is all long legs and sharp angles.  She remembers everything and loves to play games.  She's still my sweet snuggle bunny.  She has a best friend at school that she loves to see and loves to talk about and misses when she's away.  She's really growing up.

I think Jason posted about their annual check ups.  The craziness was that my tiny little Bella is no longer so tiny.  She's jumped from hovering around the 10th percentile for height up to between the 40th and 50th.  Besides the crazy growth spurt, both girls are healthy and doing great.

There's a ton more, but it's time for me to go be Mommy again.

Quick Update from Annual Checkup

We had our annual checkups for the girls yesterday.  Annabella had 4 shots and handled them very well.  She's been growing like a weed too.  They measured her at the 40th percentile for height and 20th for weight.  Genevieve only had to get one shot, and she's at the 50th percentile for weight and 20th for height. 

The nurse was questioning Bella about the color of things.  Bella, who is still pretty shy around people she doesn't know, wasn't answering at all, or even really acknowledging the questions.  Genevieve on the other hand was yelling out "blue", "yellow", "purple", etc.  I think the nurse probably assumed that if our 2 yr old knew the answers, the 4 yr old probably did too.

Expect a post in the coming days with pictures from their birthday parties.
