3 Months Adjusted Age

On February 20th, Hannah and Kate "turned" 3 months old. This is their adjusted age or developmental age. Here are some of their cute little antics we have observed lately:
-Kate almost succeeded in getting herself out of her swing. Normally I do not strap them in because of the shape of my swing. It's cup shaped so the sides come up and around their bodies and they can't sit up by themselves so I just haven't worried about it...until the other day. I had the seat in the highest position you could go with no restraint and Kate was arching her back and wiggling around enough that she ended up with her head where her bottom should be. I heard her crying and ran into the room to find her body halfway hanging out of the swing. Lesson Learned: Strap in babies or put tray on.
-They have both been trying to sit up from a reclined position. For instance, when I put them in their car seat or am feeding them, they try to sit up on their own. It will still be a while before they are sitting without us supporting them, but they are on their way.

-They have their own cribs now. They sleep much better during their naps and at nighttime because they aren't kicking or hitting each other. It's a little sad, but I knew this day was coming. Now I just have to work on rearranging the nursery a little bit. I feel like we are always moving furniture around to accommodate new baby things. I'm just amazed that it all fits.

-When they get baths, they like to splash around in the tub. When I have George around to help me, I'll get video of them getting their baths.

They are both becoming very aware of the world around them and like to see what we are doing if we are out with them somewhere. My heart just continues to grow more with love for them. Here is some video (sorry it's so dark) and some recent pictures:

Two Cribs

So ever since a couple of weeks ago, Hannah and Kate have been winding up in the funniest positions in their crib. Yesterday, I heard Hannah fussing around 6:30 in the morning so I went to go investigate. Kate was very sweetly kicking her in the head. I thought for sure they'd be able to sleep in the same crib until they were rolling over from their backs to their stomachs, but I was wrong. George very sweetly put the crib together while I was gone the other night. I only had to ask once! Woohoo (you ladies know what I'm talking about)! After moving some furniture around, we finally got it completely set up in the nursery last night. It's a little bittersweet. I'm glad they are growing up, but it's also sad to see them growing up. I still have to go out and buy the mattress today and wash the second set of bedding, but they should be sleeping in their own beds by tonight. Once I get the room situated I'll post some pictures.

George went to the doctor today expecting to be released to work on Monday, but he said that his foot turned purple while he was waiting to see his doctor. I have surmised that God must want him home for another week because it has not been changing colors recently, even with his increased activity. The doctor said that this next week will be his last week at home.

New Home



So it looks like we will be making this site our new blog home now. Thanks for moving with us! Here is the video that I wanted to post on the other site. Please forgive my voice in the background. George told me that our camera didn't have audio so I was just talking away. Also, George made a phone call while I was taking the video.

I also have a couple of more pictures to add to our Valentine's Day photo shoot.
