The Girls are 4 Months!

I can't believe precious baby girls are 4 months old (as of yesterday). Time really does fly. It feels like we just brought them home from the NICU. They have changed so much in the last month, heck the last week. I fall in love with my babies more and more everyday and I now understand when people say you love them more and more each day.

Love these cute babies.

nicknames: Avery: Avery Girl, Avey, Turkette  Sutton: Sutton Muffin, Sutte, Turkette , Little Miss

weight: The girls have their 4 month appointments come this Monday, so we will see at that time. But we do know Sutton weighed 9 pounds 11 ounces on Tuesday because Little Miss got pink eye. First week at daycare and she gets a cold followed by pink eye. My poor baby girl. Plus grandma got pink eye from giving Sutte so many kisses on Saturday. Avery I am sure weighs over 10 pounds. They both finally have some chunk on their legs and getting those precious chubby cheeks.

sleep: They were both doing so well until Sutton got sick. Then Sutton didn't want to sleep that much and kept waking Avery up. But last night they both did an amazing job and slept from 9 pm to 4:15 am in their cribs. I call that a win. And after that they slept a little longer just in our room. Keep this up babies!

eats: The girls are eating machines. Don't mess with their feeding times or they get cranky. They take after their dad in that manner. Last month the girls were eating 85 (S) to 90 (A) mils per feeding and now Sutton takes down 115 mls and Avery takes down 120 mls.
loves: They still love their new Wubba Nubs. And so does mommy and daddy. They love kicking their feet, sitting in their bumbo, playing in their jumper and their new kick n play bouncer. The girls are constantly moving and I hope they roll over soon. They really love their milk, snuggles, smiling, cooing, making faces, hands, standing up, sitting and looking at everything.

dislikes: Bath time has been harder on them lately. We switched back to their tub in the sink, but I think they enjoy baths more when I get in there with them. That way they have some skin to skin time and stay warm in the water. They hate when we don't feed them on time. Mega meltdowns can ensue. They also hate being sick. It is the hardest thing to watch your babies be sick, cry and not be able to do much for them. Breaks my heart. So happy they are both getting better.

The girls are smiling all the time and talking up a storm. They can't get enough coos in which melts mommy and daddys heart. Now only if we get can them to say mamamama or dadadada. They recognize us when we pick them up at daycare now. They get really excited and kick their legs. So cute.

They are grabbing everything they can. Mostly mommy's hair and clothes with a death grib. Tummy time has become a favorite and usually will calm them down now. Their neck strength is awesome and they are almost rolling over. So happy their teacher at daycare encourages them to do these things.

The girls got amber necklaces this weekend because they may be teething soon. They are drooling up a storm and have some whitness on their gums. I think the girls might be ready for some real foods (rice and maybe some veggies). They say if their are mouthing and imitating you while you eat, they may be ready. My girls have been doing this for a few weeks now, but we want to wait to ask the pediatrician what she thinks.

The girls are constantly eating their hands, grabbing their feet an looking around. When they get super excited, they arch their backs and move around a ton. I can't wait to see what this next month holds for my sweet girls.
 Mommy's sweet girls finally fit in their 0 to 3 month and 3 month clothing!

I am finally gathering all the girls newborn clothes (which have been washed), so I can take them down to the NICU at Renown. People were super generous to our girls and we want to give back too. So we are donating all their clothes there, hopefully this weekend.
