We're 4 Months Old!


Grayson and Weston are so much fun. They are becoming chatty, they laugh and they give HUGE smiles. When I get them up in the morning, I'm rewarded with the sweetest little smiles and coos. Such a perfect start to my day! Weston and Grayson are starting to notice each other more and will stare for a minute before moving on to the next thing. They are reaching for toys more and can hold on to some of the smaller ones. They have discovered their hands and like to clasp them together. We're working on sitting up in our bumbos in the great preparation for rice cereal!



The boys are chunky monkeys and are most definitely not my little newborns! They eat between 35-37 ounces a day, spread out over 6 times a day. I'm hoping that in the next couple of weeks, we can drop their dream feed. We've established a pretty good eating schedule during the day and they still eat every 3 hours. As far as sleeping, we typically put them down around 9:30 or so and they will sleeping until 7:00 - 7:30. Naptime during the day is a crapshoot - it's either great or they sleep 45 minutes at a time. Oh well - at least they are sleeping at night.



Grayson and Weston have graduated to size 2 diapers to accomodate their chubby thighs and are in 3-6 month clothing. It made me really sad to clear out all of the 0-3 stuff - my little babies are growing up way too quick!



Grayson - you are 14 lbs, 10 oz, 24.3 inches long and your head is 16.5 inches. You're 50th percentile across the board. Dr. G gave you an A+ and says you are really active. You are so smiley and have such an infectious laugh. You roll back to front and front to back and can make it across the room pretty quickly. In fact, the other day I left you on the floor in the nursery while I finished getting ready for church. I kept hearing a thumping sound - you had shut the nursery door by rolling into it and continued trying to roll into it! You are great with tummy time and actually prefer being on your stomach so you can pop up to check out the world around you. Recently you have started drooling a la Austin style. I don't see any teeth yet but hopefully there is something attached to all that drool!


You are a thumb sucker which is just adorable. You have always been a coo-er but have recently discovered how loud you can be. You can shriek as loud as anyone, which makes you giggle! So far, you remind me a lot of Austin, although there are definitely some Addie traits thrown in there!



Weston - you are 14 lbs, 11 oz, 24.5 inches long and your head is 16.3 inches. You're also in the 50th percentile for everything. Dr. G gave you an A+ and said you are getting stronger. You have this sweet little sly smile that starts off small. Then you will smile so big that it looks like your cheeks are going to break! You have just recently started talking a little more in this cute quiet voice. You are still pretty content to snuggle with me - I'm A-OK with this! So far, you seem pretty laid back in your personality. Every once in a while, your eyes look like they are going to turn green. I think if I can get 1 out of 4 to have my green eyes, I'm doing pretty good!


You still aren't really a fan of tummy time and will only push up on your forearms for a couple of minutes at a time. You haven't rolled over yet but hopefully that day will come soon. I think I see two teeth that will make their debut in the next month or so. You drool quite a bit but not nearly as much as Gray!


I absolutely, 110% love you boys. Every day you do something new. I am so thankful for the job that allows me to keep y'all at home with me. I love watching y'all grow and know that God has amazing things in store for your lives!
