Life's a Beach

11:42 PM

Tonight is the eve of my LO's 3 month birthday, and we are in sunny Avalon, NJ, with my hubby's family for vacation.  A few fun things happened this month that are worth mentioning.

First, Emma broke the 8 pound mark!  She's finally a REAL BABY!  Jane is not far behind at around 7 lbs.  Since they are gaining weight and the momentum of their weight gain has increased, we also got the OK to do away with one feeding a night!  So instead of waking the girls up at midnight, 3 a.m. and 6 a.m., they wake us up when they are hungry.  Our new feeding schedule is 9 p.m. and then around 1 a.m., 5 a.m. and then I get the girls up for the day at 9 a.m.  Woohoo!  Three hour sleep sessions every night!

Peacefully sleeping in the Big Girl Bed.

Last week, the heat in NJ broke and I have been able to start bringing the girls out for walks.  Hershey patiently built my Baby Jogger City Select and we were OFF!  We took walks every morning last week and have begun making walks a part of our daily routine.  The girls really enjoy the fresh air, even though they usually sleep through the walks.  And I love bragging about them ("Yes, they are twins, yes I take them out all by myself, yes they are the cutest things EVER!").

We also are now allowed to SOCIALIZE!  With that great news, we planned our trip to Avalon, packed up the car, and got on the road to attend my sister-in-law's bridal shower, where the ladies got their first look at the bay!

In addition to all of this excitement, the girls have met several milestones.  Being that they were 8 weeks premature, they have what is called an "adjusted age".  Their original due date was July 6th, which makes their "adjusted age" actually four weeks.  That being said, they should be meeting the same milestones as a 4 week old baby.  However, they are developmentally very far ahead!  They have begun smiling, holding up their own heads, chewing on and being entertained by things other than their choopies (aka pacifiers), and practicing sitting up!  They also track Hershey and I around the room when they hear our voices, recognize our faces, and coo in an attempt to communicate. It is SO COOL!

Noms, Sophie, you taste NUMMY!
Good morning, Mama!  I know you!  Thanks for the Big Girl bed slumber party this morning!
