My two growing girls

It seems like both of my girls have been growing like crazy lately.

I had another sonogram today. Katie is weighing in at a whopping 2lbs 14 oz and is 16 inches long already. She already has a full head of hair that we were able to see in some shots too. We were finally able to get a good profile shot, after 11 sonograms so far, and I was thrilled that she cooperated with us. Last time she was stubborn and refused to show us her face. Jeremy pointed out that in the second picture you can tell that she has the same cheek and chin structure as Kirsten. She is going to be such a beautiful little girl!

Yesterday we registerd Kirsten for Kindergarten. I knew that it was coming, but it still seems to have creeped up way too fast on me. She is so thrilled though. Here she is with her registration folder and the picture she colored while we waited.
When we walked into the school, she just about lost it with excitement, exclaiming "There is a Library - in the middle of the school!!!!" She wanted to go in and start reading right then. When we got to the end of the hallway she saw the computer lab, and that was it. A room full of computers, and a room full of books - what more could a girl want?

The hardest part of registration was leaving. She was convinced that she would get to stay and actually start kindergarten. Luckily she understands that kindergarten starts after her birthday, and after I reminded her of that, she became more reasonable. I am so proud of my big girl and know she will be a great Kindergartener!
