We have crawlers! At first I wasn't sure if it's technically considered crawling or just dragging, but they are on their stomach getting around the room. Not fast, so really more of a drag, but nonethless, they are getting places!
The are fighting over toys, but never really any tears, just lots of tug-a-war!
Between the both of them, they have five teeth! It's been a tough teething process, but they have been troopers!
We went to a playdate that was lots of fun.
Our first Easter as a family of four was very wonderful! Here are Knox & Sloane with the Easter Bunny :) This coming week, I'll post an Easter picture recap!
They've started watching Baby Einstein. We noticed if they were in the room and the TV is on, they wouldn't even pay attention. None. So, one morning we turned cartoons on for them. They seem to kind of look at them for a few minutes then they could care less. Then, I remembered someone had gifted us Baby Einstein and they were hooked! We were watching it once a day in the mornings. They seem to be paying less attention and playing with toys some, but it is nice to have on throughout the day, that way if they want to look, they can...and it's playing classical music :) They mostly play with me and each other.
They like when I read to them.
They are copying things we do and it's so fuuny. Yesterday, I kept saying to Sloane, "doggie...woof woof"...and she would pull her chin in and smile so big. It's hilarious. She did this when Brent was out of town and I would say "daddy is coming home today!"
Sloane is such a girl. She keeps her toys pointed and I still catch her crossing at the ankle. She is just dainty.
She started making a clicking sound with her mouth, so now when we do it, she will start up and just smile.
Knox is all boy. He bangs his toys harder and pulls stronger.
Knox is a daddy's boy. He LOVES for Brent to hold him. He will play on his chest, cuddle and sleep. It's the sweetest thing I've ever seen.
Knox is still having skin troubles. We saw a dermatologist and they day we went in, he said he had miliaria, which is heat rash. He said it wasn't necessarily caused by heat, but could be a number of things. He said it's just his sweat glands developing and he would outgrow it. It's been tough and itchy for little man. Some days it's much better than others. He has some irritation from drool as well. I've tried no dariy, no difference there.
Knox smiles so big at Elton. He loves him.
Knox woke up with a runny nose two days ago and Sloane woke up with one today. I'm hoping it's just allergies. She sneezes several times throughout the day. It's always two times in a row. Today and yesterday afternoon, it's been four times in a row. And, I notice when she eats, she is rubbing at her face more. I think allergens are just high here right now. At least I'm praying that's all it is. Though, maybe I should see if they should get on allergy medicine? Do babies do that? Is it helpful?
They learned to look when I point. It use to be they would just look at my hand, but now they look at what I point to.
They are still giggle boxes. I have some great videos I want to upload soon.
Food is going well. So far nothing they don't really like. They will eat it all. We are about to start some more finger type food. Which ones did you start first? Naturally, I'm paranoid about choking : /
What about sippycups? good ones? favorite ones?
They are nursing 3 times a day, having solids three times a day and I pump for their bedtime bottle. Knox Is getting formula in his bottle to plump up?
Knox still takes a paci, but only in her crib. We live it and her lovely there and she gets them at naps. Sometimes if she is teething, we will give her paci elsewhere. Knox still loves his lovey as well. It stays in crib, too.
Sloane is can be so bashful. She tucks her little chin in and turns her head to the side when someone talks to her.
They are taking a morning and afternoon nap. Sometimes they last for only an hour and a half sometimes two and a half. Just depends.
Finally getting more hair! Knox seems to be gettitng darker, but Sloane's is still somewhat light, which is weird to us! Of course, it can come from the family :)
We debated taking a beach vacation this year, but we decided to wait. We've got too much going on and we figured with them this young, such a long trip would be a lot of work in route and once we got there. We are hoping to make the beach a tradition starting next year :)
At 31 weeks..
Knox started sitting up on his own without a boppy or any help (Sloane was 30 weeks)
Sloane started sleeping on tummy more while in her crib..mostly during naps.
I think that's about all I have :) I'll be doing their seven and eight month posts this week :) Luckily, I did take the seven month pics closer to seven months. They will be eight months on the 19th! CRAZY!
We've been trying to get professional pics done for about a month now, but everytime we've been able to schedule, the weather acts up or Knox's skin flares up big time. Hoping either this weekend or next we can get them done! Six month pics, better late than never :)
These pics aren't probably in order by the weeks.
Knox, here you are before going on an outing with daddy.
You guys both love for you to be in the Bjorn.
Sloane, you weren't so sure about this hat....
Knox, you love sleeping on your daddy's chest....
Yall are such funny, but sweet sleepers...
you guys LOVE the sassy books...
You guys started getting ready for the Easter Bunny this week :)Sloane, you crack me up crossing your legs at the ankle even when you are just laying around...
Knox you were not having it in this picture..clearly.
Sloane didn't know I was in the chair rocking Knox. She was trying to escape and I zoomed in on her ;)
When daddy is out of town, we like to text him sweet pictures :)
Here's to staying caught up from now on :)And yes, I still have to catch up on Easter...and I'm not sure I ever posted pictures from their first Christmas, ha!
