Seriously?! Look at those scrumptious little girls!!! Ah – my heart seriously explodes just looking at this photo!!!! I never truly knew how blessed I would feel having twins. People would tell me all the time when I was pregnant, but I was pretty hesitant. All I could think of was that it would be double the work. And it most definitely is – but it’s quadruple the love – I am not even joking. Gah – I LOVE THEM!
They are both still amazing sleepers! They wake up for the day around 7am, get 4 bottles a day, 2 solid meals, 3 naps & are down for the day between 6:30-7:30pm. I really can’t complain at all about their eating/sleeping habits. They are starting to teeth as you can probably see the drool in the pictures. I bought some of those amber necklaces & I think they are all a bunch of crap – or maybe I got crap necklaces. Oh well, the girls really don’t fuss at all – they just want to chew on stuff so I let them. I did buy some frozen mango & plan to put them in the mesh teethers so they can get some fruit with relief! Win-Win!
Oh my Livia Ann. You my sweetness are perfection. I just love giving you loads of snuggles. You LOVE playing with your own hands just like your Nonna. It’s adorable. You resemble her baby pictures as well. You love giving us high pitched squeals, it never fails to crack us up. You aren’t so chatty when your sister is around, but when she’s gone, boy do you let us have it. You love rolling from your back to your tummy & try to move around to get your toys. You are easy to please & don’t give us any trouble for the most part. You can be a bit rotten when it’s bedtime though – you’d rather play in your crib.
You are eating like a champ! You are not a messy eater at all. You love everything you’ve tried so far except for avocados. Not sure what the deal is about that – maybe I ate too much guacamole when I was pregnant. Either way, you are growing so well. You had your 6 month well check today & you are now 14.5lbs & 24”. You took your shots like a lady – turning so red I swore you’d pass out – but calmed down once they were done.
Miss Abigail Jayne. My-oh-my you little stinker. I’m pretty sure I could kiss those cheeks all day long. You are quite the curious cat, always grabbing things & exploring. You love rolling around so you can get places & love chatting it up with your big brothers. You can be a tad dramatic, but Cohen’s singing always calms you down. You still sleep like a champ and typically don’t fuss – unless sister is playing and the you want to join in on the fun.
You weren’t so sure about starting solids. You were kinda a pain about it. You’d stick your tongue out & try to grab the spoon away – all the while thinking it was hilarious. Silly little girl. After those first few tries you got with the program & now eat everything I give you. Like your sister, you aren’t a fan of avocados so we’ll have to work on that since that’s one of the families favorite veggies. You had your 6 month well check today and are a whopping 15.5lbs & 25”. You were not pleased with your shots and had the most pathetic cry I think I’ve ever heard, luckily after a little snuggle you were all better.
These two girls have stolen our whole families hearts. I can’t believe we are now closer to a year than when they were born. Ahh. Time is going by so quickly but I am really enjoying every single moment with them & their brothers. I am trying to not focus on them not being so little anymore and focus on what they are becoming because I can’t change time – I can only embrace it.
I love you little smootchkins. xoxo
