The Babysitters

Can you believe it, mom and dad left us with a babysitter for the very first time. YIKES! We had tons of fun hanging out with Robin, Aaron, Brooke, and Zach. We will definitely have to do it again sometime soon. A HUGE thank you to the Thayer's for watching us.

3 Months Old

Happy birthday to us! We are 3 months old today. What a month it has been. As you can see we have both grown quite a bit (refer to December 30th post). We are so big that we both can't fit in our chair anymore so I guess we'll have to learn to share. Lily has graduated from all newborn clothes and is officially in 0-3. I am currently in 0-3, but have started squeezing into some 3-6 month clothes. This is especially true for pants, but who knows where my long legs came from. Our big accomplishments for the month include smiling and sleeping in the crib. I think mom finally got to sleep in her bed too which is an accomplishment for her. Lily also rolled over in mid-January, but she is still having trouble getting that arm underneath her. She gets frustrated easily and gives up, but I bet she gets it soon. Mom and dad have taken us on a lot more field trips now that we are getting bigger too, and mom has even ventured out alone with us. We got to visit mom's schools and dad's clinics, we've been to a few malls, and out to dinner. We even made it to Target and Babies "R" Us which seem to be staples in mom and dad's life. Although we went on many excursions this month and met a great deal of people, we are still excited about meeting more people. Hopefully we be able to do that as we continue on our adventure we call life. See you soon!!!

Smiles =)

Our big feat this month was intentionally smiling. We still get a little scared when out in public, but we can't stop smiling for mom and dad. Smiling seems to get us lots of attention too so I think we'll have to start doing it more often.

Our Dad

Here I am with dad. We decided to take a picture since it isn't often that dad gets all dressed up and takes mom, Lily, and I out for a night on the town.

As you can see from the look on my face I am shocked by my hairdo. Mom and I were just goofing around, and I never imagined it would turn out so good! Lily must be jealous that she doesn't have as much hair as I do.

We are slowly learning to nap and sleep in our crib, although this is still a work in progress. We are amazed by the mobile hanging above our crib though, and it can keep us entertained for minutes as mom would say.

2 Month Check-up

We had our two month check-up today with Dr. Mike. We are actually 10 weeks old, but due to the holidays we got in to see the doctor a little late. Mom and dad let us duke it out while we waited for the doctor. Thank goodness we didn't give one another a black eye, but we both got in a few good shots. As you can see from all of the bandages, we had our first round of immunizations - four shots and one drink. We handled the pain quite well if I do say so myself, although I did see actual tears come out of Lily. Dad said that I was screaming so loud that my face turned a deep shade of red and he thought I was going to explode. I think dad exaggerates. Mom and dad took a friend's advice (thanks Donna) and had a bottle ready to go as soon as the shots were done. That quieted both Lily and I right up and we were ready for our next adventure to Target. As for our height and weight we both made great gains according to Dr. Mike. I weighed in at 11 pounds 6 ounces (33rd percentile) and was 22 1/2 inches long (20th percentile). Lily weighed 10 pounds 6 ounces (32nd percentile) and was 22 inches long (23rd percentile). Both of our head circumferences were near the 30th percentile as well, although my head was a little bigger. That must mean I have more brains, but don't tell Lily. Otherwise everything looked good. I did hear the doctor say we have to go back when we are 4 four months old, but maybe he was just being silly. We sure hope so.

Happy New Year!

Happy New Year! We can't believe it is already 2008. Mom and dad were commenting on how last year at this time they were hoping to have a baby, and look what we gave them. I bet they never expected to have two!

Our New Year's celebration was pretty uneventful since all of us have a cold. We stayed home and watched some football and all of the celebrations on TV. Mom and I made it to midnight, thanks to me refusing to fall asleep. The same can't be said for dad and Lily though. They passed out well before the ball dropped...amateurs. Well, we hope 2008 is filled with lots of great times for all of us. Stay tuned for our exciting first year, which hopefully includes meeting many of you!
