New Year's Eve was spent at Dan's family's cabin. The girls did NOT make it to midnight (but their parents made it- barely). There are a couple of things I'm looking forward to in the next couple of months. Mid-January we bring the girls to the NICU follow-up appointmet to see how they are doing developmentally and physically. I'm not expecting them to be fully caught up quite yet but it's fun to see what they can do. In February, we are taking the girls on the plane to Florida! My parents are renting a condo so we will stay with them. I'm so nervous about the plane part but I don't have to think about it too much yet.
I don't have much to report on- this post is mostly to show-off the latest pictures- but I did want to throw a question out there. Everything I have read says not to be a short order cook, but to me, it's different when we're struggling to make the growth curve. We're on the fine line of turning Sofia (and a lesser extent the other two) pickier than they would because I end up making her other food when she refuses a new meal. Arg! Any ideas for picky eaters? I will try to keep introducing new foods over and over but I need to get calories in her! Plus some of the fattening stand-bys are not working anymore!
Here are some new pictures.

Hope you all had a great Christmas and New Years! Here's to great things in 2012!!
