We had so much fun during our family photo shoot. I know there are some things I would have changed but that is the photographer in me. My Mom took the photos with us–I literally gave her my camera put on auto and went for it. I am so happy with them and overjoyed to have some updated family pictures!! Everyone was amazing. I think my babies are little models…literally!!! Enjoy the photos!!
The babies are adjusting okay to their new schedule. We took the 4am feeding away from them last week and they still wake up continually needing to be soothed. Ryan and I do not pick them up out of their crib, which usually works but is tiring. The last two nights all three babies have woken up around 5 crying…and crying some more. Our day doesn’t usually start until 7am. So it is a work in progress.
We also got them on a new day time schedule. They are having 2 naps a day now. The morning nap is from about 9:20-11am and the afternoon I am hoping for at least an hour and a half, but the last several days it has been maybe an hour nap. I know they need to nap longer because they are so OVERTIRED and can barely make it through the rest of the evening without fuss galore, so the second day time nap is a work in progress!!
Charlize is adjusting well to her helmet. Although she hates wearing it, we are seeing progress. She definitely slept better when she wasn’t wearing it! We have about 8 more weeks to go.
Jax is teething like crazzzy!!! He is my jolly chunkster!! I have three really happy babies, but this stud is always happy. He and Charlize, however, are struggling a lot with those teeth coming in. Poor babies.
Sawyer is doing so good!! He is great at eating food with his hands–not everything makes it into his mouth, but he is on a roll. He is the most successful sleeper so far. They are my gerber babies!! So much cuteness!!
The trio have had quite a fussy week!!! The boys are teething like wild and Charlize is adjusting to her helmet (she had it off for a few days while it was painted so she is getting used to it all over again). They also seem to be getting ready for some nap transitions!!! eeeekkk….buckle up Mommy!!!
The babies usually nap 3 times a day: 2 morning cat naps (45min-hour) and 1 afternoon 2 hour (ish) nap. Last week there has been consistency in changes in the afternoon nap. All three babies are barely napping an hour. So, this means they are probably ready to go down to 2 naps?!?! RIGHT? I mean I think they probably are!
Next week is going to be a WILD ride because!!! Praying it will be a smooth transition!!!
The babies are also drinking 6oz bottles!! Do you know how HUGE this is?!?! GOODBYE GERD!!! #ohmygerd We are so excited that gerd has finally left this household. Glory to Jesus!!! We are so thankful to see the babies drinking more milk!! They are doing so well at not spitting up too. This is such a huge answer to prayer. We still need to burp them often, but we have been waiting a LONG time for these days. We will be taking away their 4am feeding tonight. Buckle up AGAIN!!!!
Charlize and Diva Crown!
Charlize is wearing a helmet. She has had it for about two weeks now. It has been a bit of struggle mostly only at nights and when it has been really warm, but she is doing a lot better now. Auntie Val painted it and it is adorable. We had a Doctor’s appointment this week and they are already seeing progress in the reshaping of her head!! wahoo!!!
Babies were dedicated today!!! I can’t even handle it!!! It was so beautiful!! Check out our Youtube Video that captures the dedication!!
