6 Months Already…
It’s funny how once you have kids, you don’t even know what your life would be like without them! I am loving being a mom! The twins are now 6 months old and really are the lights of mine and my husband’s life. Their personalities are really starting to shine! Now that they are super responsive, it is so fun to get a giggle out of them. My absolute favourite moments are always first thing in the morning when they are awake and laying in their cribs waiting for me to come get them. Right before I pick them up, I will look over the side of the crib and say “good morning!”, the smile that I get from both babies is beyond precious.
Jayden is still the dominant twin – he is still super active and definitely has more of a temper. He has places to go and doesn’t like to sit still for very long. He will stare at you with a straight face if you try and get him to laugh, but once he does start laughing, he is so funny. He laughs with his whole body and it is the cutest thing ever. I still believe that he will be the one to test Ryan and I in the future. He seems to have a more active and go-getter personality.
Quinton is still my laid back baby. Easy going, super easy to get a smile out of him, and really would be super content to just cuddle all day long. Funny thing about this picture – we were trying avocado for the first time and he was not happy about it! haha!! My poor little guy got the shivers and spit everything right back out. Everything that my husband doesn’t like to eat, the boys haven’t been the biggest fans of either! It is kind of strange! Quinton is obsessed with Jayden. If Jayden is playing with a toy, Quinton will stop what he’s doing to watch. Then after a couple minutes of observing Jayden, Q will burst into laughter. It is so funny, and so cute at the same time!
The Twins Together
We are starting to hit some more “first” milestones and it’s funny how the tiniest thing makes a parent so proud. We are starting to have so much more fun with them, having little dance parties (they LOVE music), and doing silly things to make them smile.
They are sleeping great, but we are starting a sleep training schedule just to make our day-time a little easier. I want a strict eat/nap schedule during the day so it’ll be easier for me to plan my days out. Right now our days are still structured around when the boys wake up and feed then every 3 hours after that throughout the day. I would much prefer a set time that they are eating or napping. I ordered the book Twelve Hours’ Sleep by Twelve Weeks Old: A Step-by-Step Plan for Baby Sleep Success to read and hopefully will be able to implement their theory.
The twins have started trying more of a variety of solid foods, which has been really fun to experiment with. The facial expressions are the best part of trying something new.
As you can see in the above picture, the boys are growing like crazy! They have almost quadrupled their birth weight and have grown like crazy in length too! They are now surpassing the average sizes for their age which is incredible for twins. Twins typically are a lot smaller for a few years, depending on how premature they were born. So the fact that they are caught up is unbelievable!
Anyways, thats us at 6 months! I will be doing a new post soon about baby products that we are loving at this stage so stay tuned!
