Month 7

These little boys are the apple of my eye. They are beautiful, wonderful, amazing, baby boys. They must be having a growth spurt because they can't ever get full. They love their milk and are getting the hang of solids. Just this week they started to eat mum mums (rice puff stick) and love them. Video to come of them eating them, it will make you laugh.. They love to roll all over the floor. Both are still working on sitting up. I am sure there is more to add. But they are both now awake in their beds crying so.... that is all for 7 months! Love you boys.

Being A Mom

As I put Jack to bed tonight he was just about to fall asleep and I was singing I Am a Child of God to him and I started to replay the day over in my head, mostly the last few hours. I lose my temper with him so quickly, he so easily frustrates me. He breaks thing all of the time, is constantly making a mess, loves to torment the twins, and whines whines whines...... but I had this overwhelming feeling come over me of, I sure hope he knows he is loved. He has had his whole life flipped upside down in this past year. He not only became a big brother once, but twice. He is a smart, funny, kind, little ball of energy, that is one of the best parts of my life. So I hurried before he fully fell  asleep and made sure that he knew he was loved and even if I get mad often he is always loved and appreciated. New goal for tomorrow.... be a better, less frustrated MOM! I will keep you posted on that :)

Six months.... and still small! But no complaints they are both doing well. Both boys have great head control. both coo and smile a lot. They can roll both front to back and back to front. They both reach for hanging toys, Luke more than Sam but Sam is improving daily. They both sleep through the night :) and also take great naps. They eat carrots, squash, and new tonight, sweet potatoes. They are developing their own personalities but are still so... much alike, expected, right. Luke has laughed a bit here and there, but this morning Jack was dancing around Sam and he busted up laughing, made us all happy! They both love to bounce in their jumpers. Neither one of them sit very well yet, but that is our next goal.

At the 6th month appt. today Luke weighed 14.6lbs, length 25in and head 43in. Making him in the 4%, on a normal growth chart. As for little Sam he weighs 11.3lbs, length 23 1/2 and head 42 1/2. Making him.... no where near any % and now he is too old to be measured on the preemie chart so.... That's okay at least he is growing consistently.

I am proud of my little twinner boys. They have come leaps and bounds in the past 6 months. They remind me everyday of how precious life is. I am lucky to be a Mom. I thank God every day for that blessing.

And how could we have a post without mentioning the star of the show JACK! he is enjoying preschool so much this year. They learned about pirates last week :)

He is a wonderful big brother. Both Luke and Sam light up when he talks to them. They are lucky to have such an awesome big brother.
