Half a year with these babies earth-side, and they are more fun than ever!Read More
It has taken me a while to come to terms with how our babies were delivered. It wasn't a horrific birth, or even very traumatizing, but there wasn't much that went to plan (is there ever?) and I felt a little ashamed of how my babies had to be welcomed into the world.Read More
I feel like I just wrote their 3 month update yesterday!
At 4 months they're more fun than ever, and more attached to mama than ever. They coo like crazy, especially Annie. Sybelle talks when she has to say and Annie babbles all the live long day.
I finally put away their 0-3 month clothing, they still fit 3 month sleepers and diaper shirts, but are mostly wearing 3-6 month pants, some 3 month pants still fit, but not for much longer! I just started putting them in 3-6 month shirts but they're swimming in them! Still in size 1 diapers but I think they'll be growing out of those within the next week or two. They are both getting pretty chunky, we will find out their weight this week at their doctor appointment! Annie has so many wonderful rolls it is the best thing ever, and Sybelle is slowly starting to gain some weight in those sweet cheeks of hers. I'm finding as Sybelle chunks up a little, she's starting to look more and more like Annie. I love that they're starting to look more like twins!
Sybelle has her hands in her mouth all of the time, Annie likes her hands but not nearly as much as Sybelle does. They love laying on their play mat and grabbing their toys, or each other's faces and hands. They're starting to get bored a little bit quicker than they have been, so we're going to need to find more play stations to rotate through soon.
We have our routine down pat, but I think they're starting to grow out of their frequent naps. Morning time is their favourite. I'm woken up every morning to chatting from the nursery. I'll go in and turn on the lights and then let them chat and play with each other while I let the dogs out and get breakfast started. It's one of my favourite moments of the day, just letting them enjoy each other's company. The past three nights they only woke up to eat once!!!! Fingers crossed it continues this way!!!
If you follow me on Snapchat (@sarahemahon) you will have seen Annie rolled from her tummy to her back a few weeks ago! It was so exciting we couldn't believe it. Sybelle is so close to rolling from her back to her tummy, so I figured I'd put them both on their tummies to see if that was easier, expecting Sybelle to roll and Annie to just hang out. But it was the opposite! They're so fun in how they surprise us every day with their little personalities. Sybelle is definitely more of a thinker, Annie is more of a doer.
Sybelle's core strength is incredible! She'll be sitting up by herself any day now. She even tries to lift herself up if you're holding her so she can be in the sitting position. Annie is getting there too, they both get so excited when they're sitting upright with a little help. It's going to be so fun when they can sit and chat with each other, or sit in the tub to play. I just can't wait!
We've had a few giggles lately, but nothing super consistent. Kyle has taken it up as his personal responsibility to make them laugh as much as possible, which is just the sweetest thing. We can't wait until giggling fills this house.
That's all for now, I hope you're all well! Take good care, lovelies!
