Just a few assorted pictures from the last few days. And, once I learn how, I'll be uploading some videos including Chaya's laugh and smile!

Close-ups of the girls while I was trying to capture their smiles on film. I LOVE all of these pics and once I photoshop them a bit, they will have a place of honor in the house.

A blurry, off-center picture, but the first capture of the ellusive Shira smile...

And, finally, my punk daughter.

Can I just tell everyone how much I love my daughters? Because I do!

Well...tooth. Batya has a little corner of her first pearly white poking up through her gum. That would explain why she has been almost unbearably fussy these last couple days. And before you ask, I'm not mean mommy enough to stick a camera in the poor girls mouth. Yet.

We are back from the ped's and here are the latest stats:

Chaya is 10 pounds 12 ounces and 23 1/2 inches long
Shira is 12 pounds 9 ounces and 24 inches tall
Batya is 12 pounds 2.5 ounces and 24 inches tall

They are all on the charts although Chaya just made it at the 1% mark. But that is uncorrected!

Other news from Dr. Crosby...
Chaya will probably be crawling soon and there is no need to worry about her being smaller than her sisters as she is gaining well. She is also teething, but is a happy teether and that is why I haven't noticed.

Shira is very strong especially upper body and will be staying on the Zantac probably until well established on solids but before 1 year old. She is also so into ucking on her arm that she is bruising herself.

Batya is teething and will most likely get her teeth first. Unfortunately she isn't a happy teether. She was also very vocal and laughing during the appointment.

Here they are...4 months! And no, I'm not making them exercise already!

Here is the official 4 month photo. Don't they all look so happy to be there? LOL!

Here is one where you can sort of see a hint of a smile on Shira's face. (No photos of the smile yet, but we now have a video camera and I'm going to set it up and use the whole tape if I have to to catch them!

Here they are in the same positions they were in my tummy.

And finally, here they are crammed into the preemie clothes they wore in their first group photo in the NICU. The photo is there and soon I will get out he scanner and scan it.
Ron put my camera somewhere so I can't upload the 4 month pictures. I'll find out where it is and upload them tomorrow. Alos, tomorrow is our 4 month pediatrician appointment, so we'll have accurate weights and lengths on the girls.

Can a girl have too many shoes? NO!

The girls are finally fitting into their shoes, so on today's outing, they all wore a pair. Aren't they too cute??

I know it has been a while, but on top of being busy I forgot my username and password for the blog and had to ge through all sorts of hoops to get them back. Finally here and yes, I've written it down somewhere.

The girls were social butterflies these past couple of weeks. Out shopping, a henna, Shabbat dinner at home and 2 out, Shabbat lunches out, a wedding, their birthday is coming up and then on Sunday we celebrate Safta's and Gill's birthday. They are just busy little bugs.

First up are some pictures from Sunday's wedding of Miri Benzaquen to Shlomo Dayan (no relation!).

Here are some pictures of the girls playing. They still don't like to smile for the camera, but they are smiling and laughing all day long and Shira is a talker! And they LOVE this playmat given to them by Aunt Kathy!

Just a cute picture of Shira showing off a diaper and her great "baby pose" push-up. It's her favorite position during floor play.

My little Batya tucked into a slig worn by her Aba. We had gone for a walk to CB&TL and I pushed the double and Ron wore Batya. She fell asleep almost instantly.
