Annie & Sybelle: 10 Months!

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: 3 Months!

I really just don't know where time is going. This month we celebrated Christmas and all of the fun things that lead up to that special day, we started sleeping 4 hour streches through the night - consistently (hallelujah), and fell more and more in love with eachother ever single day. 

So, bare with me while I blabber on about all the amazing things these little girls do. 

It is so amazing to find Kyle chatting away with our babies. He lights up their sweet little eyes. There is no one that can make them smile quite like he does. We hung out a lot with family this month, and it is just the sweetest season of life to be surrounded by so much love. Not to mention Christmas. Holy moly were we all so spoiled. They have both grown more and more into two little individuals, they are so incredibly beautiful and perfectly unique. I am so proud of both of them. 

We have come to realize the babies really like their little routine - I might do a post on it soon because I have searched the internet high and low to find something that works, especially for twins. They tend to get quite overwhelmed if we spend the whole day travelling, in and out of loud places, and if they don't get many naps in their own crib. 

My most favourite thing this month has been the way they calm down when I hold them. Throughout this holiday season they've been held by many many people, and sometimes they get overwhelmed. The second they're in my arms, though, they're happy little beans. They've really started to wrap their little arms around me when I hold them and it's simply the sweetest feeling. 

They love their changing table, even in a fit of screaming rage, plop them on the change table, take off their pants, and boom - happy baby. It's quite mystical. They're still fitting size 0-3, 3 month, and are growing into some 3-6 month pants. Still size 1 diapers, and we even had to get a special slightly smaller size 1 to fit Sybelle's teeny tiny bum. Annie has the chunkiest cheeks and thighs, I could squish them all day. Sybelle is slowly starting to grow her little rolls, but is still a bit of a string bean. 

We call Sybelle by a million different nicknames: Sibby, Belly, Belsie, Little Belle... The list goes on, every day we find some new way to play with her name. Annie just gets little things tacked on to the end of her name, Annie bean, Annie fanny (she'll hate that one when she's older), Annie girl, sweet Annie (thank you, Zac Brown). 

They still love to play with each other, which warms my heart. These days Sybelle has been trapping Annie's hands to chew on, because why chew on your own when you can chew on your sisters??? I could just go on and on. 

I'll leave it at that for now, I could talk about these babies all day long. I think I'll be posting a post-partum update soon, because when I was pregnant I spent pretty much all day every day researching what birth and recovery might look like. Stay tuned :)

Take good care, lovelies!
