dear isla and alice,
on Sunday you were three months old.
I can't believe how big you are now. It's so hard to believe that you ever shared the same dwelling in my tummy.
You both smile at me all of the time. I especially love the big, open mouthed smiles... they melt my heart. You two are both getting so strong and you hold your heads up all of the time. I am thinking it might be bumbo and jolly jumper time very soon although I don't want to rush you. I now change each of you with one hand on your tummy as I am pretty sure you will start rolling over any day or week now since you shoot your legs up so high in the air every chance you get.
Alice, you love your soother. Isla, you still think the soother is evil but that is okay... you are so relaxed as long as your tummy is full. Isla, you are grabbing toys on your playmat and Alice, you smile when I touch your face.
....um I breastfeed you two twelve times today, that's twelve times between the hours of 6 am and 6 pm... can we say growth spurt? I'm not complaining, I want you to get big and breastfeeding has become so so much easier as of late (thank god).
You are both sleeping wonderfully. You love sleeping in your bassinet, in the swing, in the wrap and in your new carrier. You normally take a nap after you play in the morning and then another nap after you play in the afternoon. You sleep from around 6 pm to 10 pm (eat) 10:30 pm to 4 am (sometimes 5 am if we're lucky... sometimes 3 am if we're not so lucky) (eat) and then wake up around 6 am or 7 am (sometimes even 8 am.... amazing).
the other day I felt a little hand on my shoulder, I loved it so much.
