3 months.

The babies were 3 months yesterday. 3 months. already.

Here they are with their new little "softies" and slippers from grammy:

They seem like they are getting so big, but I guess for their age they aren't. They are still in size 1 diapers. Scout is still quite a bit bigger than her brother though.

Scout has been drooling like crazy! Could she already be teething???

Fin is sooo smiley and he laughs now too!

Scout coos a lot and makes lots of fun noises. She loves to "talk" to us.

Both babies have started rubbing their eyes when they get tired! It is so cute! Scout sometimes rubs her nose when she gets tired just like her big sis did when she was littler. It's adorable!

Finley has been sleeping better. He sleeps from about midnight to 5 am straight. Then goes back to sleep until about 7 or 7:30.

Scout still doesn't sleep that well. Usually we can't get them to sleep until 11 or 12 at night. And then she is usually up at 2, 4, sometimes 5, and 7 am to eat. She is much better now about going right back to sleep though.

I am pretty sure they have their days and nights mixed up. They could probalby sleep all morning and early afternoon if I let them!

Scout is still little miss bossy bossy. She is much more demanding than her brother. He is pretty easy going for the most part!

Fin still has his blocked tear duct, so his eye is goopey a lot of the time.

Scout is filling out so much. She's got a cute little double chin going on, and she's getting rolls on her arms and legs.

I am still having to supplement them sometimes at night with formula. I have started taking Fenugreek, so I am hoping that helps my milk supply. I have heard it works wonders!!!

There is still no real set schedule with them yet either. No predictable sleeping or eating times. Although they do have a predictable crabby time, which is at night.

Both of them are soo funny when they are hungry. If someone else is holding them and they start crying because they want to eat, I'll take them in my arms and they'll still cry, but as soon as I unsnap my nursing bra, they immediately stop crying! I swear, when they hear that snapping sound, they know it's time to eat!!

Both of my babies belch and toot like adults! It's hilarious! How can such loud noises come out of these little bodies!?

They both love to look at lights and bright colors. They'll just stare contently at the walls behind us if we are holding them so they can look over our shoulders.

I think both babies are going to be thumb suckers. They both take their nuks, but they try sooo hard to get their thumbs in their mouths. Usually they end up trying to shove their whole fist in their mouths instead.

maybe tomorrow I'll post more of their 3 months photos I took, if I get around to it!

Guess who lost a tooth........

It's been ready to come out for a while. It's so cute to see him with a tooth missing!!! His 2 bottom teeth are gone too, but those had to be pulled by the dentist, because his permanent teeth had grown in behind them, so we never got to see him toothless!

so cute! :)

They are getting so big....

Look at them. They are all getting so big! We pulled out the Bumbo chairs for the first time today for the babies. I think they really liked them! I can't believe how much they actually fill out those chairs!!!

Happy half Birthday!

Monday was Kinzie's half birthday! She's a big 4 1/2 year old now! I can't beieve how big she is, and how fast the time has gone! I am so proud of this smart little girl of ours! Tuesday they celebrated her half birthday at school since she has a summer birthday. Me and the babies went into the classroom to celebrate with her!

She says the funniest things! I need to start writing more of them down because I don't have a good memory, but here a some of them that I can remember.

-The other day she was wearing a dress that had a second layer underneath it, and she pull up the top layer and says "OH GOD, OH MY LORD...there is ANOTHER skirt under here!" And she said it loud and slow, and sooo seriously! It was so funny!

-Kinzie was telling Grammy that one of her friends always makes her go to the bathroom with her, and she says "I don't know what her problem is?" And Grammy replied "well, you always make me go to the bathroom with you!", and she says "Well that's only when I have a big ginormous poop"!!

-One day when Scout was screaming, she put her hands over her ears and says "too loud. turn her DOWN!"

-I want to get new chapstick. I ate all my hello kitty ones. Can I have 2 scoops of yours Mommy?

Kinzie is such a little word police. Especially if you say stupid or hate. She'll catch you immediately and say "don't say stupid" or "don't say hate". Even when you don't think she is listening, she'll chime in all non-chalantly and just tell you as she continues whatever she was doing. And if you don't say sorry, then she'll jump on you about it until you acknowledge that you said it.

Kinzie is so into making crafts and cards right now. She sits in the craft room almost daily making little cards for people; mostly for her friend Kennedie. She cuts up little pieces of papers and glues them on paper or cards, and then she'll find any other little treasures she can use such as candy wrappers, tags from clothing......anything! She'll write a big mix of letters on it and then wants to know what it says. She loves to put her little handmade presents or cards into little gift bags or envelopes too. It's so adorable!

She is quite the little hoarder too. She has a little "play area" in her room, as she calls it, which is just the small corner between her toy bins, and then she also has a little play area downstairs. Both places have become her place to stash her treasures. Things anyone else would consider trash, are soooo important to her! Everything from tic tac containers, to clothing tags, to candy wrappers! She keeps EVERYTHING! And if you try to move or throw anything away she notices and gets very upset about it!!!! We did go through her little corner in her room together and "let go" of some things... It was a little emotional for her, but it was getting piled way too high. Among the stash I did find a peanut butter sandwich in a plastic ziplock bag!!! EWWWWWWWWWW!!!!!

Kinzie is always wanting to put on a talents show........but then she has no talent to show! She'll gather everyone up and say it's time for her big talent show! She'll even make little cards and has me write "will you please come to my talent show" on them, and she'll invite everyone! But then once she has everyone gathered and waiting, she'll get all shy and just stand there!!! I'm not sure she really gets the concept. It's so adorable.

She loves doing hi's and lo's at the dinner table every night! She always makes sure we don't forget to do them! And she is now finally starting to get the concept of hi's and lo's. For the longest time she'd mix them up.

Here are some recent photos of little miss Kinzerella:
