Twin Update!

Mallory and Layla are doing awesome. They are now just over two months old and growing, and growing, and growing! I am pretty sure that Mallory is still at least a lb. heavier then Layla, and she is definitely still longer! They have their two month apt. This Tuesday so we'll see what the scale says then :)! We still aren't sure whether or not they are identical, but I have decided, literally just like five minutes ago, that I just can't stand now knowing anymore. So I am going to get one done as soon as I get a chance. There are times when they look so much alike to me, and other times when they look so different! I was just saying earlier today that I thougth they looked quite a bit different, and then tonight when I was feeding them before bed, I looked at them and thought, oh yeah, they could definitely be identical. It's their eyes that get me. Layla has these huge eyes, and Mallory's eyes aren't quite a big. We'll see. I guess I wouldn't really be surprised either way.


Personality wise they are both so different too. Mallory is a screamer! if she wants something she's gonna let you know it! Layla is quieter, and when she cries, it just sounds so sad, it could break your heart lol. They both smile a lot, Layla has this huge gummy grin, and Mal has more of a sly half smile grin. It's so adorable. I can't wait to see what they are like when they get older. Well, yeah I can. They are really good babies, and don't give me too much trouble at all. I'm so lucky there! Here is a picture I took a couple days ago of them on the floor. They're getting real strong, and holding their heads up great! Layla is on the left, and Mallory is on the right. It was the best picture I could get of both of them with their heads up. Usually one has their head up, and the other has theirs down, then they switch, switch again, etc, etc... lol. Taking pictures of these girls and trying to get them to smile at the same time is going to be tough!!

I just love my nieces! All three of them! I can't belive how big those girlies are getting! Pretty soon, like in a year or two, they will be as big as Eli! LOLOL

I can't believe how big they are getting already. They shouldn't be able to hold up their heads yet! They got to stay little! I'm not sure if they will ever catch up to Eli! :) I don't think we want these girls to be football players or wrestlers!!LOL

So I agree on the eyes and don't forget the hair! I can't believe how big they are either, and it was just a couple weeks ago that I saw them and they look so different. What cuties I just want to love on them, but being around them makes me want to have another baby because they are so small like Sage, so they have to hurry and get big...lol love ya

What a precious picture! I can't believe they are so strong at only two months old. They are so beautiful, and they seem to be putting in so much effort. I hope hope hope I get to meet them when I come home in April.

Ahhhhh!!! I miss you guys!!!! Especially Ava!!! She's growing up without Kerners! :o( She talked to me on the phone the other day at Mimi's, tho! :o) It was so funny!!

I'm waiting for a good full-front face pic of Mallory and Layla so I can put in my 2-cents worth on whether or not I think they're identical. They're SOOOOO cute!!!! Who cares if they are! lolol

Love you guys!!!

All three of your girls are so sweet and cute. I can't wait to see Avery again and hug and kiss Mallory and Layla.
