Belated Holiday Pictures, Skating and Smiles

We finally got our family holiday pictures done (all in one, newborn, katie birthday and holiday) last night. Jillian wasn't the happiest, but we got some good ones nonetheless.

Here's a fun video of Jillian smiling and grunting at her birdies on her play mat

Here's pics and vids from Katie's 3rd skating class, K and J together.

 Katie is talked about space last week at school. I was proud of the way she traced her name in this picture. 
They are talking about simple tools this week. 

 She found a friend at skating

 We got some smiles this week

1 month appt

Jillian had her 1 month appointment last week, and the doctor said she was doing great. She weighs 10 lb 4oz which is 90% and she's 21 inches long (50%), her head is 14 3/4 (70%). I couldn't believe how much she weighs, but I'm glad! Her little cheeks and double chin should've been a clue... She had to get a shot, but it hasn't seemed to bother her very much.
I finally got a blurry shot of her smile, which is still rare at this point, but I try to get her to smile all the time.
Katie did great at her skating class this week, and she was able to get up on her own, and even skate a bit by herself.
Katie learned about boats two weeks ago at school, and airplanes last week. She made a paper airplane and used a feather and a straw to see how it would fall. She's starting to remember more about a few of her favorite books, and I love to hear her "read" them.
