Two Months Old

 Oh, these babies!  We love them so, but they are giving us a run for our money.  They have grown so much over the past few weeks but taking in the world is just hard for these two.  They do great nursing and some good sleeping...and a lot of screaming.  I am SO thankful for the recommendation of ring slings and the book "Happiest Baby on the Block" which taught me a few swaddling and white noise techniques.  Every little bit helps!  They really have such different temperaments than their older sisters that we have all had to re-learn how to care for such little babies.

On to the more fun details--at their eight week check-up, both were healthy and growing.  Everly is now 7 lbs, 10 oz and Grant topped the chart at 9 lbs, 1 oz.  He still glares around but has gotten to occasionally enjoy his bouncy seat and the bathroom mirror.  Eve is a huge smiler, especially at Mali.  Both have started to interact more with our facial expressions and have lost their newborn "gruntiness". They snuggle up sweetly to us when sleepy and are overall as cute as can be.  Fussiness and all, we are so blessed by them.
