Another month has come and gone. Filled with many new milestones for these sweet girls!
Where we are at this month:
Well these girls are everywhere! They are crawling to wherever they want to go and this makes it twice as hard to keep an eye on them. One is going one way and the other is going in the opposite direction. We have had to keep them away from the dog bowls! They love making their way into Avery and Raegan’s room and playing with their toys. I usually have to go in and do a quick pick up to make sure there isn’t anything they could put in their mouth and swallow. They are also pulling up to everything and cruising. They do the most cruising in their cribs and around the ottoman in the living room. They think they are so big and can even turn around and stand with their back to the crib/ottoman. It will be really crazy when these girls decide to start taking their first steps! I am so curious as to when they will walk, will it be early like Avery who was officially walking at 9 months or like Raegan who decided she would start walking the day after her first birthday!
We have these Dino toys that can be used to ride on or walk with. They love them and can even get off of them by themselves. They can stand up with one but not climb on it yet. They really love it when big sisters sit on it with them and ride around the house. Lots of smiles!
The girls have been eating every 4 hrs and taking in 7 oz bottles, but I think we are about to change that. They just arent interested in eating and I am trying to determine if its teething related, being too active to want to eat, or if they are ready to go longer between feedings. They are still under the recommended ounces per day and I plan to discuss this with their pediatrician at their checkup coming up. We can’t force feed them! They are eating solids 2-3 times a day, usually at lunch and dinner. They eat avocados, bananas, apples, green beans, sweet potatoes, carrots, squash, peas(not a fan of right now), and baby oatmeal. They also started eating Cheerios this month!
This month we have been sleeping great! They are still taking 3 naps a day! We only had one night where both girls woke up screaming right before I went to bed. I went in to see what the problem was and after they both continued screaming the hubby came in to help. Well we realized they were having teething pains and were just gnawing on their pacis, so I went and got an essential oil to put on them and they calmed down within 20 minutes and went back to sleep and slept all night! We are moving this weekend and I’m really hoping this doesn’t cause any sleep issues once we are in the new house!
