The Six Month Update

Kaitlin and Ella on bed

Well we’re coming up to six months and I guess it’s pretty clear we’re a little busier these days than we used to be. We’ve still got a stack of thank you notes to write so if haven’t received yours yet, just know that I decided to spend the time writing this instead. Here’s a little state of the union on the girls:

Kaitlin smiling

Nickname: Bloobs

Kaitlin’s the more reserved one. Getting a smile out of her takes a little work, so you really feel like you earned it when you get one. We call her Bloobs because the doctor remarked that she had blueberries for eyes and it just kinda stuck. A few weeks ago, we noticed the back of her head had a flat spot on it, something that is fairly common with twins. We took her in for a 3d head scan and they are going to mold a little plastic helmet that she’ll have to wear for a few months to get her head back into shape. Some babies get so attached to the helmets that they don’t want to take them off, while others hate them. So we’ll see which one Kaitlin is soon.

Ella smirking

Nickname: Gizmo

Ella won the race for first tooth, with a little stump poking through in the front just today. She’s called Gizmo because she’s always trying to break things and she turns evil when we feed her after midnight (for those of you that remember the movie Gremlins). She’s a perpetual motion machine. You know how they said Barry Sanders was such a good runner because his legs never stopped churning? Well I think Ella could take him in a 40-yard dash. If she could only figure out how to walk. Also, I’m pretty sure she has Tourette’s but just doesn’t know the words yet.
