Happy Two Months Lexi and Lyla!


I love how Lyla is resting her head on Lexi's shoulder!




We've made it to two months! I can't believe that my little girls have already been with us for two months. When I was pregnant, every week was such a big deal, especially with carrying twins. It's funny how life is still like that once they are born. The only difference is, when you're pregnant, you want the time to go fast, when you're a parent, you want the time to slow down. I'm already telling Lexi and Lyla that we will be moving to Knoxville with them in 18 years when they go to college!

We had their 2 month appointment yesterday and everything went well (except for the shots). Here are their stats:

Lexi:
Weight- 9 pounds 2 ounces
Length- 21 inches
Head circumference- 37 cm
Lyla:
Weight- 8 pounds 9 ounces
Length- 21 inches
Head circumference- 37 cm

Their doctor was so pleased with their growth! She also checked their motor development and said they were right on track. So it looks like we're doing a good job with them! The girls definitely did not enjoy their shots and neither did I! We get to do it all again in 2 months!

Here are some other facts about Lexi and Lyla at 2 months:
Lexi:
Eating: 4.5 oz every 4 hours. She eats about 5.5 oz at 10 pm.
Sleeping: She's starting to sleep about 5 hours straight at night. Getting better!
Clothes: Still wearing mostly Newborn size clothes. In Gerber brand onesies she is wearing 0-3 months. Just started using the Size 1 Pampers Swaddlers!
Lyla:
Eating: 3.5-4.5 oz every 4 hours. The past couple of days she's been congested which I think has slowed down her eating but yesterday and today so far have been better. She also gets a bigger bottle at 10 pm but only finishes it occasionally.
Sleeping: Same as Lexi (thankfully!)
Clothes: Same as Lexi!

Both girls are getting less stingy with their smiles which is so sweet. They react to different faces and noises so I can't really pinpoint what makes them smile the most. They are also tracking us so it makes it hard to walk away from them when you know they are looking at you! I have to say having 4 eyes on you is amazing! They still love to look at lights and fans. Their necks are getting stronger which I think can be seen in the pictures of their Bumbo seats.

Lexi and Lyla, Mama and Daddy love you so much and we can't wait to see what the next 2 months brings! You are both beautiful girls and we are so thankful to have you in our lives.


These pictures were after we got home from the doctor yesterday so they weren't very happy!

  1. Sorry,I couldn't help but laugh about the comment about moving to Knoxville. I seem to remember Bubbie and Zayde saying the same thing to their baby when she got accepted to UT.

    It didn't work for us and I am sure it won't work for both of you.

    The babies are beautiful and Bubbie and Zayde look forward to seeing them very very soon!

    Love Bubbie

  3. They really are growing well! They are so adorable. I can't believe they are eating every 4 hours at thier size!! Jacks didn't do that until 6 months! =) Wil on the other hand did it earlier, but he was much bigger.

  5. Happy 2 Months! The pictures are so cute. They sit up on the couch really well. Everytime I would try to do those pics with my girls they would immediately start slouching and slide down, lol.
