3 Months!

Updated with pictures!!

The twins are 3 Months old today!!! I can't believe how fast these last three months have gone by. It is absolutely amazing watching them grow. They are so responsive now. Always laughing and smiling when we talk to them and sometimes when they're just sitting in the bouncers, haha. They are holding their heads up so well now and even trying to sit themselves up! They're also working on rolling over. Kaylie did it once from her stomach to her back. They are also getting very close to consistently sleeping through the night. Mostly when we're at the beach they will sleep from 9 or 9:30 to 5! Then they'll eat and go back to sleep for another 3 hours. At home it's more like sleep at 9:30 or 10 and up at about 4 for Cav and 5 or 5:30 for Kaylie.

Here is what I have learned about parenting in the last three months:

  1. Don't always rely on the books to tell you what is "normal" for a child. 
  2. It is possible to take twins out in public by yourself.
  3. A baby's smile, coo, and laugh can melt your heart and brighten any day.
  4. Schedules are becoming a bit more realistic.
  5. If your baby wants more food, they WILL tell you.
  6. When traveling with twins, bring extra people!
  7. Sometimes you will need to give your child a bath after they explode out of their diaper.
  8. Sleeping more at night = more awake time during the day = finding things to entertain them
  9. Bibs are key if you have a spitter.
  10. Babies LOVE the beach! It's soothing for them and your sanity!
So how did we celebrate the twins turning 3 months today? We took them to the zoo!

It was so much fun, more so for me and Ry, but I think the twins had a good time too.

We've decided that Cavan has the same expression as a Lemur, haha (well not in this picture).

We want to take the to Roger Williams Zoo hopefully in the next couple of weeks so the twins can see even more animals!
