We're 4 Months Old!



Today Austin and Addison are 4 months old. And how do they get to celebrate? A trip to the doctor complete with shots! Dr. G said they are both growing well and look really good. He also said that we can start them on rice cereal - that should be an adventure! They both still eat between 4-6 oz, 6 times a day. John and I have been enjoying lots of sleep because typically they will sleep from 9:30 - 7ish. Those days of getting up in the middle of the night are such a distant memory!

Austin now weighs 13 pounds, 5 oz. He's 23.5 inches long. Austin's favorite thing to do right now is laugh. He laughs at everything, especially John's dancing. He's working under the thought that anything that can go into his hand or is next to his head should go into his mouth too. This includes toys, bib's and Addison's arm/head/foot/hand (he's really not that picky). This also means that Austin has become a thumb sucker.


Addison weighs 10 lbs, 12 oz. She's 22.3 inches long. Addie is still our petite little girl but Dr. G said she's perfect (we happen to agree)! Addie has recently discovered her tongue and loves to stick out and try to grab it. She has also decided that she no longer wants to sleep on her back but prefers her side - just like her mommy! Addie is a little tougher critic in the laugh department. She smiles a lot but it takes something special to make her laugh - like John blowing zerberts on her tummy.



Both kids like tummy time now - no more screaming thank goodness. They push up on their forearms well and can both roll over from tummy to back. They have both rolled back to tummy but we haven't really caught them in action.


It is amazing to see how much our little A-Team has grown. They are no longer the tiny newborns we brought home from the hospital. Now they are little people who smile, laugh, entertain and explore...all while melting our hearts.
