Well the girls are 4 months old and doing great. Their interests include looking at the purple mobile, stuffing their fists into their months as much as physically possible, turning their heads quickly while parents attempt to provide nourishment and of course kicking. Seriously, they are doing so wonderfully. They are sleeping and smiling. Their favorite time of day is 5:30 in the morning. I swear you've never seen any two people happier to be alive before dawn than these tow ladies. It's pretty endearing. Alright, no new pictures since last time, but with a trip out to Abby's parents on Wed. and my parents coming up on Fri. me thinks that we'll have some by next weekend!
Here are the results from Tuesday's doctor visit: general good health. Tilly: 23 3/4 inches and 12 lbs 5 oz. Elly: 23 1/2 in. and 12 lbs 13 oz. That puts them in between the 25th and 50th percentile.

Here are the ladies, they love to kick. They especially like kicking you in the ribs and such. Just now Sirus got kicked off the couch by the girls. We don't want to jinx anything, but the new formula seems to be kind of, sort of working, but let's not over sell anything for fear of regression. Oh, it's their 3 month birthday today! YES! Sleeping is going great, Elinor has been going between 4 and 8 hours at night and Matilda's not far behind. So that's amazingly wonderful. The girls had an exciting time at the Gilbert Family Picnic! Here's the girls dressed up for their first "winter" walk. Watch out mildly cool weather! We're on to you!

This weekend we went to the FW zoo and saw the baby lions and tigers. The lions were born two days after the girls, so the friends.

The girls are doing fine. Not much news. We'll go to the doctor pretty soon and they're coming up on 2 months old. Look at how big they're getting! They are basically out of premie clothes although to telll the truth its just that they have gianormous bellies, everything else is quite slinder and form fitting.

Great news today we finally got the results back and the girls are offcially considered “identical.” Three weeks ago DNA samples, HI-RES laser scans and Folic Lampon Tissue residue (FLT) were sent to the CERN facility in Switzerland, home to Europe’s largest superconductor, for testing. The data was analyzed by Dutch physicist Emrick Slepzenberg for signs of identicality. Although many of the first tests we’re rather inconclusive a breakthrough was finally made with the HI-RES laser scans. Dr. Slepzenberg announced that the Large Hadron Collider’s beam synchronization systems which will allow the LHC operations team to inject the first beam into the LHC. And the rest as they say is histroy.
The good doktor described these laser scans in laymen’s terms: “You know zat part in zee movie Terminator when ze esteemed actor Arnold Schwarzenegger looks at ze people and he zees them vith a grid of some sort? Zat is essentially vat vee do ven vee are looking at the HI-RES laser scans.”
Along with a certificate proving identicality the Tiggeman-Morrises received printouts of the three laser scans that the doctors used. The first two show the girls by themselves and the last one, I think the most conclusive proof yet, shows the beautiful girls together.
