Happy One Month Lexi and Lyla!

Lyla (purple) and Lexi (pink) on their 1 month birthday

Our baby girls are now 1 month old! It's very strange to think that if they had made it to their due date (very uncommon with multiples) they would be 1 week old today! I'll say it for the rest of their lives....I'm so grateful for the extra 24 days I've had with them! Here's some tidbits about each girl:

Alexa Isabella:
Nicknames: Lexi, Lexi Belle, Lexi Lou, Lex, Chunky Monkey
Likes: Her Mama, bouncy seats, looking at the lights and fans, eating, tummy time, being held, and getting attention
Dislikes: Getting changed, being alone
Other: Lexi is getting really good at tummy time. She is able to turn her head from side to side easily and is very good at holding her head up. She is also starting to take notice of the mobile above her swing and she reaches for the teddy bears that are on it. We catch grins from her a lot but we are eagerly awaiting a real smile.
Eating: 3-4 ounces every 3-4 hours
Sleeping: It varies! But she definitely does not want to sleep at night yet!

Close up! Why does my hair always look red in pictures?
Lyla Julianne:
Nicknames: Lyla J, Lyla Lou, Froggy, Sweet baby, Little bit
Likes: Her Daddy, bouncy seats, tummy time, the lights and fans
Dislikes: Getting changed, being upstairs
Other: Lyla is so much more easy going than her big sister. She is able to calm herself down unlike Lexi who needs to be held. Lyla is also able to turn her head from side to side and is holding her head up well. She is starting to make eye contact a lot more and grins as well.
Eating: About 3 ounces every 3-4 hours. Sometimes more, sometimes less.
Sleeping: Same as big sis!
Lyla is not feeling picture time today
Oh Mama! Give it up!

Your Mama and Daddy love you both so much! No matter how tired or stressed we are, the past month has been wonderful having you in our lives! We look forward to TWO lifetimes of joy and love.Take 1: Aren't twins supposed to like each other?
Take 2: Slightly better but still not good enough!
Take 3: Uh oh. Now nobody's happy!
Take 4: Maybe it's these outfits. Let's do a wardrobe change!Mama. Let's just try again some other time. We're not going anywhere and neither is your camera.


  1. Do you always put Lyla in purple and Lexi in pink? =) Happy 1 month girls!

  2. I was going to ask the same thing. Love all the pictures!!

  3. I love your blog. You are a great writer. Soon you will be addicted and want to post about every little thing. I love all the pictures. Keep them coming. They have already grown so much since their birth. Their faces are starting to fill out. You are going to love looking back and seeing how quickly they grow!

  4. o my goodness! They are so cute! I have the same outfits for my girls too!

  5. I should have added that I'm Heather from 3 under 3, so you don't think I am some random stalker!

  6. Thanks everyone!

    I already told Amber, but Kristen...I wish there was enough purple that I could always put them in pink and purple but it just doesn't work out!

    Heather- I love your blog! Thanks for checking in!
