Well, well, well...
Look who's 4 months old! I can't believe how much they have grown and changed. They aren't even the same babies!
Caroline is such a joy! She talks all.the.time. and I can't get enough of it. She just sits and smiles and talks and interacts so much. I think I kiss her about 500 times a day. I hardly ever wear lipstick because I know I'm just going to kiss P&C a million times and I don't want them to be covered in it. I can't help myself.
They don't go to the doctor until next week so I don't know all of their stats, but I'm guessing she is about 13 lbs and around 22-23 inches long.
She loves sitting in her bumbo, playing in the bouncer (she is starting to reach for things), and looking into a mirror. She loves walks outside, being talked to, and she will totally watch the TV when the Ranger's are on! I'm not kidding that she turns her neck to see. Little baseball fan in the making!
Her favorite conversation partner is my Nana! She will just tell story after story after story to Nana! It's the cutest thing in the world.
My baby girl, I love watching you grow. You learn and discover everyday and I can't get enough of your sweet smile. You are my little beauty and I pray everyday your beautiful heart will seek after Jesus and far outshine your outward beauty.
Parker is my little love! This handsome man is my cuddle bug. He snuggles right under my chin/on my chest and is a little lovey. He smiles with his entire face. When he gets a big grin his eyes squint closed and it's the cutest thing in the world! He giggles!! He has been doing this for weeks and it seriously makes me laugh out loud every time. It's a baby belly laugh and I adore it.
I'm guessing him to be around 17 lbs and 24-25 inches!
His favorite activity is going for walks. He loves to be outside, like to sit in his bumbo, play in the bouncer, and coo. He has taken to a lovey and scoops it up in his arms for bed time. It's pretty adorable.
His favorite talking partner is his daddy and Nana. (Nana has a way with the babies!) He cooed and giggled with Nana for a good 10 minutes the other day and we were all dying laughing. I got it on video and I've watched it at least 20 times. He has a new trick that I haven't quite figured out...we put him down for bed and by the morning he's still on his back but almost completely out of camera view. He must spin himself around in his sleep by kicking?
My little Parker man, you are such a precious gift. I love watching you explore and learn! You make me laugh and when you smile my heart bursts. You coo as you fall asleep when I'm rocking you and I feel like you're saying "goodnight". I pray that you know how much you're loved and that you grow into a man of faith and character.
Just to make you giggle...getting infant twins to cooperate for photos is insanely difficult 1-on-1 but we are a complete joke trying to get photos of them together at this point! The photos below CRACK me up. They were in succession and you can see Caroline's increasing frustration and the look on Parker's face is priceless.
"Wait? Are we crying?? I thought we were just chillin, but OK. I can do crying."
I'll leave you with that. Happy Monday, friends :)
