Four month update! It’s hard to believe but yes, it has already been four months. They are growing fast and creating a lot of fun around here. They’re constantly breaking into big wide mouthed smiles and giggles. Karson is our little talker with a constant stream of coos and silly little laughs.
They love bath time with Dad where they kick and splash and float on their backs. It’s such a fun bonding time for them and is often the highlight of our day. Aside from bath time, their favorite time of the day is the morning. Their favorite song is still the Itsy Bitsy Spider and the Raffi Pandora station is on constant rotation around here. It’s safe to say Lucy is a Daddy’s girl and Karson is my little Mama’s boy.
When I nurse them they reach out for each other’s hand to hold, and my heart just melts. They’re spending a lot more time looking at each other too and paying attention to what the other is doing. If one starts crying, the other is sure to follow. They are also starting to get jealous if I pick one up and not the other. I’m getting a lot better at picking them both up and carrying them around at the same time.
The other day they had first taste of food other than breastmilk. They each got a little bit of rice cereal and did really well. As of last week at their four month checkup, Karson weighed 10 pounds, 10 ounces and Lucy is leading the way at 12 pounds, 14 ounces.
They smell so sweet (well most of the time) and they are the most beautiful things I have ever laid eyes on. I love them more and more everyday!
