This has been a week of firsts. The girls are moving quite well now but still fall over their own feet a lot.

They had their first solid food early in the week and took to solid food like they had been eating it all the time. They quickly cleaned up all they were given then waddled around their full tummies.

They went outside for the first time. They didn’t know what to make of the green and brown stuff sticking up. They started showing interest in the toys their dad sent them and they have started playing.

Hunter’s Riverrun Emilee Jade

Hunter’s Riverrun Emilee Jade weighed 3.3 pounds. She eats in a more reserved fashion so doesn’t get as much of the solid food and as a result hasn’t gained as much. She seems to be up and around more than the others probably because she isn’t so full. She checked out the toys while outside.
