Quick Stats

D: Wednesday was the Duece's 2 month birthday. I cannot believe that 2 months have already passed...I desperately want every moment back. People tell me that once you become a parent the concept of time will never be the same. I now know what that means. Time has never gone by so fast.

In two short months the boys have taken up residency in every last corner of our hearts. O (A.K.A. OBear) is now weighing in at a hefty 11.2 lbs! He now grabs on to everything and has adorably started to 'hug' when I pick him up. We are currently working on his rhythm with the rattle. He loves to take long luxurious baths...the more bubbles the better. He often stares at lights and ponders its luminosity. He’s got a rockin’ head of hair that tends to form its own fauxhawk in the morning. Some might say he’s quite the mellow baby, but they haven’t seen him when he’s hungry. He often displays a frenzied demeanor and goes for his ‘lunch’ like a german Shepard with a rag doll. (Ouch!)

If only to prove to us they are actually identical F (A.K.A. Mr. F'tastic) is also weighing in at an amazing 11.2 lbs! F’s been chatting up a storm, talking to the dogs about the good times to come. His favorite game is to clap his hands with the help of his Dad. He also loves bath time and kicks the water intently practicing his froggy stroke. He’s been smiling at everything, especially when he knows he’s about to eat. Tummy time is usually spent on his parent’s chests, where he shows us his superman pose with his feet extended and his head raised high. When put on the ground he rolls over into his back (as does Ollie, sometimes simultaneously).

Both boys are going down for bed after bath time around 9:00pm. They usually need the comfort of their swings for a while before getting to sleep. W then feeds them their ‘dream feed’ around 12:00am with a bottle of breast milk. Usually they both sleep until at least 4ish. Lately I’ve been letting one of them sleep, and they’ve been going until 5 or 6! All in all, they both have always been pretty good sleepers, which has been a dream for us!

Thanks to our dear friends for the sweet knit duds!
