I'll give little updates on all the girls...
Sofia has been showing her toddler side a little more lately with lots of defiance. I don't know why but lately she screams bloody murder during baths (physically hurt? or mental?- no idea) and hasn't been eating as well. I just weighed the girls yesterday with the home scale and she was 19 lbs 10.5 oz. Most one year olds are 20 lbs so we still have a peanut. We continue to push high-cal foods but apparently we need to try harder. What will be important will be what the doc says about her weight gain since the 18 mo apt. They don't go in until the 20th so we'll see then.

Madeline is in a DADDY DADDY spurt. When Dan joined us in the Duluth for Thanksgiving, that's when Madeline realized she needed him! Sometimes she screams when he gives her to me!! Hurts my feelings! ;) During the day when he's gone, I'm an adequate substitute, luckily. Madeline's weight yesterday was 22 lbs 9.5 oz. Her 18 month sized pants are getting a little snug on her! I think she inherited my eating gene. Madeline and all of her sisters are talking so much more now. She was the first to ask for water (she just says "wateee wateee"). They will identify things in books and out in the world. One example lately was all three shouting out "cow! cow!" when we passed the milk section since Kemps milk has a cow on the carton. I am so excited for this talking development.

Here are some more random pics, and some from Thanksgiving. I need to get a pic of the Klopp Thanksgiving still, so hopefully I can put that one up later.
