    Default Three Months! (x posted)






    Very cliche, but it seems like they've been here forever and such a short time all in one. I can't believe they're 3 months old.
    As stated in another post, they are doing great with sleeping - Andrew's sleeping through each night for 2 weeks now, Ben slept through all last week but this week seems to be very hungry at about 3 AM.

    They're taking on average, about 6 ounces at a feed now. And feeding still every 3-4 hours during the day, 2 hours in the evening.
    We've sneaked them tiny finger tastes of "this and that" from our plates. (I know, bad mom). They love it.
    They're developing a more predictable nap schedule.

    As for personalities, Andrew is all smiles and giggles. He loves anything to do with his tongue, making lots of sounds and raspberries and watching your tongue click, etc. He loves tummy time and playing on his play mat. He is a BEAR when he is tired. He's a lot like his sister "When he is good, he is very very good, and when he is bad he is horrid". He puts himself to sleep in his crib now.. Ben is much more mellow. Happy to swing or sit around. Not happy on the belly or the back (flat). He likes to people watch. He is a lot more likely to smile at things far away than close up. I worry about him... cognitively. Have since he was born. He refuses to make eye contact. Ben can roll from back to front and front to back. Ben loves his pacifier and his mother especially. Andrew prefers a deep voice and will take any warm body or smiling face.


    During the day they are terrific. Once 5 o'clock hits, it seems like all hell breaks loose around here. I am ready for the summr to be over for Ava to go back to school. She is sooooo bored here with us.

    Thanks for sharing pics, they are so cute. Was it hard adjusting to two babies and still keeping Ava involved?

    They are so adorable! The sleeping sounds great!! Wish my little stinkers were a little better about sleeping. lol. I'm sorry that you have some worries about Ben, I hope that its nothing serious, have you talked to your doc at all? I know its hard to say anything at this stage, but sometimes moms just know also. Hugs!

    Not really - she is a "mother hen" by nature, and she was so excited about these babies, that the first few months here were very easy with her, adjustment wise. The only challenge for her has really been jealousy when guests (grandparents especially) come and hold babies.

    I promised my husband I would wait until he's at least 6 months old before I say anything to the doctor, because my husband thinks I'm guilty of comparing kids and that Ben will just do things in his own time. But like I said, since the first time I saw him I "knew". We'll see.

    Wow - they are getting so big. They are very cute! TFS the pics.

    Sounds like a great sleep schedule all ready. I am impressed. I hope my twins do as well.

    Thank you Lindsey!! I squealed out loud!! They are so adorable. And I am also excited to hear about their sleep schedule...I hope we are all so blessed!!! Any special tricks you had? Or they just gravitated to that sleep schedule?

    Take care...again, thanks for sharing!!!

    They came home on a 3 hour feed schedule, which I think was key in getting any rest initially.

    My husband feeds them sometime between 10-11, then puts them to bed. I am already asleep at this point, so I get a decent stretch. VERY important in the beginning.

    I let my babies sleep on their bellies which is where they are happiest to sleep. That, and letting them fuss to sleep a little, are my only tricks.
