Bad Blogger

It's been almost 2 weeks since my last update and that was not really much of an update (I didn't win the necklace in case you were wondering but I do have one on the way for my birthday)! Lexi and Lyla turned 4 months old on April 3rd and they are doing great! They made it through their second round of shots with no major meltdowns. Lexi weighed in at 11 pounds 14 ounces and Lyla trailed her at 11 pounds 5 ounces. They both gained exactly 2 pounds and 12 ounces since their 2 month appointment. Obviously they are both still little things, but they are growing right along their curve and their pediatrician could not be more pleased with them. Both girls have rolled over from their tummies to their backs a few times but have kind of stopped since about 3.5 months. They both seem more interested in rolling from their backs to their tummies now, but they stop short on their sides! Lexi and Lyla love to smile and they also "talk" to us now. They both squeal in delight and Lexi has recently started blowing rasberries which she thinks is hilarious (I just think its messy). Lexi is our sitter and Lyla is our stander. I swear Lyla will stand before she sits! Lexi is not sitting unassisted yet, but she is able to sit for a long time with the Boppy around her for support. And Lyla can stand while we hold just ONE of her hands. It is the funniest looking thing to see little Lyla standing. I have to get a picture of it. I have seen both girls transfer toys from one hand to the other and they will grab toys when placed in front of them. They are also starting to pay more attention to each other which is so cute. They will grin at each other when they are sitting in their Bumbos.

Josh and I love them to pieces and can't wait to see what the next 4 months has in store for them!

  1. Your post listed as Bad Blogger.....When I read it my comment to myself was, BUSY MOMMA!
    Always glad to read your blogs, but know that with 2 little ones in the house you sure don't have the time like some of us are.

    They are so sweet!

  2. The girls are adorable. Great pictures of the two of them together. We look forward to the updated pictures. Grandma and Grandpa

  3. Gosh, they are getting so big (even though they really are little still:). Do they sucker their thumbs? Both of my kids do and it was such a blessing when they were little (not keeping pacis clean and keeping up with them.) Since it's warm now, I would love to meet you at Johnson park and walk the boardwalk! We saw so many animals out there yesterday. Let me know a good day for you.

  4. Lexi and Lyla keep getting more and more precious looking everyday!
    Love, Zayde
