I was looking at this calendar that my daughter had given me for Christmas this year. It was the year of the twins. It started out in January with a very pregnant daughter and in February the birth. Now 17 months later I can’t believe how they have grown. From being under 3 pounds at birth to over 20 pounds now.
Of course, we think they are the most adorable babies ever. Well I guess we have to call them toddlers now. They are such good little ones. I don’t remember my children being this good when they were little. Can’t say it was because they didn’t have anyone to play with because there was 5 of them. It could be that I am just older and more mellow.
Anyway thanks for taking time to look at our granddaughter’s, Beka and Kate.
On February 26 I turned 64. I had a wonderful birthday which started with having a play date with the girls.

Our granddaughters had their first Thanksgiving. They did go crazy for the chocolate and banana pies.
I know I am a little late but like they say better late than never.
Hope you enjoy my photos.
Thanks for stopping by.
My oldest son has been going through a hard time lately. I called him and had been drinking. Of course, that may him tell me how he was feeling like no one cared about him. Well that scared me so I caught a ride with a friend down to his house in Sterling on the Kenai Peninsula. Continue reading “They are Always Your Baby”
So we got home yesterday and today we watched our granddaughters for a few hours. My daughter knew we would watch them so our Son in law could do some work because we had not seen them for 5 weeks. David and I couldn’t get over the fact that they each have started to get fffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffffff t their own personality already. Rebecca is going to be the thinker we think. Katharinelllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllllll
This is what happens when you try to blog after a few beers, a shot of whiskey and jet lag. I kept falling asleep with my fingers on the key. I gave up and figured I would start again this morning.
As I was saying Rebecca is going to be the thinker. She is the smaller of the twins but doesn’t miss a thing. She is always looking and moving. David thinks her first words will be a sentence.
Katharine right now is the one that wants all the attention. She has always been the better eater and you can tell because she is catching up to her age faster than her little sister.
They were born 7 weeks early but they were healthy. They were never on oxygen. Katharine weighed 3lb7oz and Rebecca weighed 3lb2oz. They needed to learn how to suckle and weigh over 4lbs to get out of the hospital. They both left together after a month. Heather was only giving them breast milk but now she is having trouble keeping up, so they are having to get a little formula.
Heather just told me they went in for their 4 month check up and Katharine weighed 11lb2oz and Rebecca weighed 9lb7oz.
This is the girls when we left.
These are the photos that Heather sent me while we were gone to butter me up before she asked if I could watch the girls once a week when we got home. They don’t seem to be able to get anything done. Can’t imagine why. Let’s see they are raising twins, Heather is the CEO of the largest manufacturer in Alaska and Dan in trying to run his real estate business. So now Grandma and Grandpa are back and we can help out when needed.
These are the pictures that I took while we had them yesterday. They really are good babies. They fuss if they are hungry or fighting sleep. They are girls and are afraid they are going to miss something if they are sleeping. But to their surprise Grandma knew how to get them to sleep after raising 5 children and the 10 grandchildren before they were born.
If you can’t tell we are very proud of our little girls and will enjoy watching them grow up.
