Annie & Sybelle: 10 Months!

Rompers: Wildforest Handmade // Bows: Little Luba

Baby Bear Shirt: The InkPAD // Blanket: Growing A Little Love

These girls are 2 months away from their first birthday! This last month has been a big one, and we've been very busy in this house - hence the update being 2 weeks late... better late than never I suppose! They are busy little bees, and the only way I was getting pictures this month was to hand them a handful of veggie straws... Ah life with twins.

These sweet girlies are 100% on the move, and speedy, too. They crawl everywhere they want to go, and are pulling themselves up onto about everything they can get their little hands on. Baby proofing the house started this month, and now I have to find new homes for all of my plants, since we've already had a few dirty incidents and plant murders, RIP little aloe vera. 

The girls are starting to really interact with each other, and it is my most favourite thing of motherhood yet. They crawl towards each other and laugh as they get closer and closer to each other, they share food, they giggle with each other, it's just the sweetest little relationship I've ever seen. They absolutely love to "dance" (wiggle their middle) to pop songs such as Despacito. I miss country music, but the girls just want to groove, so pop music it is!

Annie has 6 teeth now, and Belle has 5. They are still teeny tiny, and have really slimmed out and lost some of their baby chub now that they're on the move, so a lot of their smaller clothes still fit really well. They can still fit 6 month sleepers, and anything from 3-6 month up, which is awesome to get so much use out of our really cute items. 

These little babes have had a lot of fun firsts this month, and are having such a blast. It's getting easier and easier to get out and about with them, and they're having more fun than ever. This month has been an absolute blast! This is a pretty short update, but we've just been really enjoying life together and spending as much time outside and unplugged as we can. It's also been crazy busy over at the shop, so life has been very full! 

Thanks so much for reading, I hope you're having a beautiful day!

Annie & Sybelle: 9 Months

Annie & Sybelle: 9 Months

I thought I was being all productive, getting shit done, getting some decent (ish) photos of them until I looked over the photos the next day only to discover I switched the babies around. Annie is ALWAYS on the left in these photos (her name is on the left of the chalk board) and I for no reason at all, put Sybelle on the left. DUR. Then I thought about retaking these dang photos, which is SO much effort, holy moly, and decided that this was a funny story and this is exactly how life happens sometimes. So behold, their 9 month photos.

Annie & Sybelle: 4 Months!

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!
