2.19.17 – Two Months Old

19 Feb

Our sweet boys are two months old already! Time is flying so quickly – the days go by in a hurry but life can seem like one long day at the same time. These boys love their sister, and she loves them so much right back. They still don’t love their pacifiers, but are getting a bit better about taking them. We still get lots of, “How dare you!” and disgusted faces when we try and put them in. They both love their swings but aren’t biggest fans of bouncy chairs. They slept in their room for the first time (in their rock-n-plays), and it went well. They are spitting up less and have worked through their constipation issues. YAY! They are starting to “talk” to us more and more, and are smiling all of the time now. They are just the sweetest, and we love them so!

Dear Greyson,

You are our little butterball. We love your chunky cheeks and round belly. You smile with your whole face, and we just can’t help but smile right back. You give us glimpses of your laughs during your active sleep, and I can’t wait to hear it for the first time. Your piggy snort breathing and loud toots/burps make us chuckle. When you are active, you just seem so excited – pumping your legs and arms and breathing so quickly. Your “talking” is almost like shouting and gets louder when you are warning us that you are getting hungry or tired. It’s obvious when you are hungry, because you shake your head while attacking your hands with your mouth. You are so strong! You have really great head control and can roll yourself right back over from your tummy if we don’t get you balanced. You arch your back like crazy when you have gas in your belly. And you are starting to give us 4-5 hour stretches of sleep at the beginning of the night, which makes us so happy! You are just the sweetest, and we love you so much!

XOXO,

Mama and Daddy

Dear Oliver,

You have the sweetest shy little smile and dimples that just melt my heart. You still show your “Mr. Serious” face often, but your smiles come so easily too. As soon as you see our faces or hear our voices, you give us the sweetest grin. You love to snuggle up on our chests, and you have a little “MAAA” cry when you are feeling like you need a snuggle. You have grown so much this month – you’re definitely working on catching up to your brother. All of that growing must make you sleepy, because we have a hard time getting you to wake up after feedings at times. You have a little shake in your hands when you’re excited or worked up, and you can give the best little pout lip face when you’re sad. I still catch you trying to suck your thumb once in awhile, but you haven’t got the hang of your hands yet. You still love grabbing onto our hands and shirts when we hold you, and you are always studying faces. We are so thankful you are ours, and we love you so!

XOXO,

Mama and Daddy

I also have to brag on our big girl a bit. She had a period of transition, which we, of course, expected. But she has grown up so much since her brothers arrived and has handled this huge change so well. She is such a big helper, and she is always loving on her brothers. She hates to hear them cry and gives them a million kisses a day. And they smile as soon as they see or hear her. We couldn’t be more proud of our sweet girl! She is the best big sister and daughter in all the land! Can’t believe she will be 4.5 soon!
