That is how much you helped us raise! Can you believe it?!?! Today we finished strong with three more donations; one from Nate's Dad, a second from Lisa's Mom in honor of Lisa's grandfather who is very sick, and the last donation this year came from our awesome next door neighbors Steve and Lisa.

We celebrated today by going to see the doctor for the girls' two-year checkup. Well not really celebrated, but I did think it was fitting to see our doctor exactly 2 years to the day from our first appointment with him. It was May 13th, 2007 (Mothers Day) that the girls came home. A few days later we went back to see our doctor for the first time. So today, we returned. It's been several months since he has seen the girls and boy was he impressed. They opened up and were talking and sharing their signs. He was blown away...especially when they started showing him different colors in the room. It wasn't all happy times since the girls needed their final shot until they start kindergarten. It's never fun for the shots but they were SO brave.

Anyway...I'm getting off target. I wanted to report the girls' measurements today.

Alyssa is 22 pounds, 6 ounces and 34.5 inches tall
Katy is 22 pounds, 8 ounces and 34.5 inches tall!!

Again...can you believe it?!

So Saturday is the walk. Sam and Cindy are going to be joining us. I know many more of you will be there in spirit. We'll see you there...and take plenty of pictures.

Thanks again everybody for making this year an ENORMOUS success!

Amazing how close your girls are size-wise after TTTS! Mine have always been many pounds and about an inch apart.

Congrats all around...the walk AND your healthy, smart, happy girls.
