So here are Raya's current "stats", interspersed with cute pictures from their hugging and playing this morning....enjoy!
Raya weighs about 35lbs right now and I have no idea about her height, but I know that the last time she was checked she was around the 80th-ish %ile for weight and closer to the 60th%ile for height. She has shorter legs and a long torso, or so I think. She currently wears 3T-4T shirts and 3T pants. Pants are very tricky to buy for her b/c length wise she is more of a 2T---just barely 3T....but waist wise she's a 4T. The 4T pants are waaaaay long so we have to stick with very stretchy or loose 3T pants.
Raya's favorite toys/activities right now are : Her baby bop stuffed animal, her big owl pillow, books, puzzles, and anything that could be considered a game or craft. She hasn't been playing with her baby Anna very much recently, because she's been on such a baby bop kick. She has also backed off wanting to color as much---although she still likes to when Sawyer is around.
Raya's favorite foods right now are: cereal (any kind), peanut butter sandwiches (currently banned :-P), string cheese, yogurt, chicken nuggets, fish sticks, hot dogs, milk, granola bars, goldfish crackers, chips, candy, icecream, cookies, hamburger, apples, bananas, strawberries, etc. She doesn't like: salads of any kind, soup, deli meat, juice (or any liquid other than white milk and water), smoothies, or most raw veggies.

As far as her sleeping habits, she goes to bed between 7:30-8pm and wakes up 12 hours later. She's a pretty consistent sleeper at night, sleeps in her big girl bed---we have no trouble at all so we're very lucky! She has never once in her life expected us to lay with her, her come to our room, she doesn't throw fits when it's time for bed (usually---every once in awhile she wants to stay up and watch a show but she forgets about it really quickly)...it works out great because I really count on my girls to go to bed at decent times and quickly, because then at night is when I work on Etsy orders!
Recent milestones include: sleeping in her big girl bed and giving up the crib, puts on her own shoes, climbs into her own carseat, brushes her own teeth, shows interest in undressing herself, is ready to potty train but I've just been too lazy---I'm sure she'd potty train quickly if I tried again because before the move I had her completely "pee trained" and just needed to work on the pooping ;-o, can pick up her own toys when asked, likes to help fold laundry, especially wash clothes, can get her own bowl and silverware out of the cupboard, etc.
We're very lucky to have this little girl in our lives and I"m so looking forward to the upcoming holidays with my darling girls!
And in other news, here is what I did all day yesterday while my mom had the girls:
A wholesale turkey shirt order for the mall. Hope all the kids like their shirts--if I had twins they'd be wearing these :-)
