Knox & Sloane are 23 weeks old today! They say “thank you” for the sweet comments on their pictures yesterday 😉 No, I don’t usually say they are “23 weeks old” if some asks. Right now, if asked, I would say that they are just over 5 months old. I just want to keep track with the weeks for when I took a book of these posts 😉
The past two weeks have been fun! They are interacting with each other and us more and more.
They’ve adjusted to no night swaddle and just today I took the nap swaddles off.
Knox had become a side sleeper during the night and last night he started become a face sleeper. Yep, you heard me. On his belly, with his face flat down. Scares the crap out of me. We do have the angel monitor, so hopefully it will go off if he gets in a jam. The little guy moves like crazy, though, so hopefully it is okay.
Knox has also been a little fussy the past few days. I need to wash my hands good and feel around in his mouth for teething..but I haven’t really noticed him wanting to chew on his hands or toys more. I think there is a chance he might be developing a lactose allergy because he has been doing a lot of pushing/grunting noises. Lovely, I know.
Sloane has been pretty chill lately. If I walk in the other room to grab something, she just goes on about her way. Knox is starting to get fussy if he can’t see me.
Knox is rolling all around. Sloane is just going from tummy to back, but with just a tiny bit a help, she will pop back up on her tummy.
More hair for Sloane! It’s not looking as reddish now, but more of light brown.
I think they are starting to get less bashful around people. Knox will give his smiles, but Sloane is still kind of working on it.
Knox woke up randomly one night about midnight crying. We gave him a few minutes, but could tell it wasn’t just a nothing cry. I went in and rocked him for a bit. He burped a few times and kind of made that grunting like he was trying to poop. So I gather his tummy was upset. He fell back to sleep and did fine the rest of the night.
Brent’s mom joked that we do have tears coming in our future. I’m trying not to take for granted how chill they are most of the time. However, teething and tummy aches are probably not something we can hide from….nor are the tears 🙁
They are sitting in bumbos now. Sloane likes it, but Knox just kinda tries to squirm out.
I adore his brows and lashes.
They love holding hands. You can tell the turtle was in between them, but once they pushed it down, they grabbed hands <3
He kind of propped his head up a little it seems
after I went and took my phone to shine a light on hi like 1000 times to check, and he’s turning his head.
Sloane without her swaddle after nap today. She really wanted her fist….
Love cuddle time in the mornings…
Hope you all had a good Friday!
