Fatty Mattie and Slim Sadie with Update photo

Here are my babies at four-months (not corrected age for those of you calculating in your heads.

This is Matilda in all her double chin glory. Don’t you just want to pinch those cheeks?

And here’s Sadie. She’s delicious I know. But don’t you just want to give her a muffin?

Grow, Sadie, grow!

    Wow. Does Sadie have teeth already?

    Okay, yes, it does look like she has little bunny teeth but in fact, she is not a freak. This is just a weird light thing. Maybe a little spittle on her little tiny lip?

    I guess 4 months would be on the freaky-early side for those top teeth.

    They both look adorable.

    They are both absolutely stunning.

    Gorgeous sweet baby girls. I think all the terrible things you say about them must be lies, because they look like perfectly sweet non-crying girls to me.

    They’re killing me, Stef. Somewhere, my husband is looking up how to perform an at home vasectomy so I don’t try to have another one.

    Precious, precious, precious…and svelte Sadie looks like she’s got healthy blush to her cheeks if you ask me…

    (Unless as my mom used to do to me as an infant “put a little rouge on her…she’s so pale.” 😉 )

    They’re gorgeous. Simply gorgeous.

    Looks like you have red-head(s) too!? (I have 2 of them and they didn’t get it from either of us). They’re Presh.

    Very adorable girls! Hope you can stop worrying about Sadie soon. I didn’t have quite the same situation, but my daughter was 6 wks early and in the 3rd % forever (OK, not forever, until around 18 months) and when the doctors would comment how it would be nice if she’d gain a little more, I always got a little obsessed, but dang my kids were not big eaters! Sending good thoughts your way.

    My first baby was so skinny and troll-like that, now in hindsight, we can’t believe we even thought he was cute. But boy did we ever.

    And our second one has rolls and cheeks a plenty.

    They’re both delicious. In that totally edible way babies are.

    I was thinking of you this week when I was in the hospital having my baby. My roommate (for the first night) had twin girls.
    Did I mention she named them “Izzie” and “Lizzie”????

    Seriously they are really adorable. I have a multiple chinned 11 month old if either of them are interested 🙂

    Mattie lookes like she could eat Sadie for breakfast. I’m with you on the ‘grow Sadie, grow’ chant!

    Wow. I can’t believe the difference in size between the two of them. They are both so beautiful.

    First, they’re adorable. Second, Becky was talking up your book and now they are both on their way to my doorstep. Third, my kids got their first teeth at 4 months old. (Yes, I’m one of those people who sometimes reads all the other comments before I leave my own.) Fourth… okay, there’s no fourth. I’ll just tell you again how cute your girls are. And now I will go away. 🙂
