Grrr the Batteries!

Rechargeable batteries are not all they are cracked up to be! I think ours must be at the end of their life because they run outta juice after one round of snapping photos! So that is the very long explanation of why there are no updated photos of Elizabeth or Sammi. So I'll just get to the information:

Monday was Elizabeth's two week check-up. She weighed in at 7 lbs 13 oz and was 21 inches long. That means she's grown an inch and gained almost a pound since birth. Way to go, Elizabeth! Also at the doctor's office they did the PKU test where they prick their heel and fill all these little (or not so little) circles on a card that test for brain development and other such things. Sammi was very interested in that and "helped" the nurse as she pricked Elizabeth's heel and coaxed as much blood as she could from her little body! Elizabeth was not so interested and cried the whole time while holding on very well to her binkie! After the doctor's office she pretty much slept the rest of the day. That made grocery shopping easy. Oh that I should be so lucky everytime we go to the grocery store...

Sammi says: rrtyiooppa nvb,/ mvbv

Which means "I'll be a blogger one day , too."
