Eight Months

The twins turned 8 months old on March 3. They are spending a lot of time on their tummies getting ready to crawl. Jack has even started using an army crawl to move himself around. Another highlight of this month was getting doc bands. Since they were twins, they didn't have very much space during the pregnancy. This can cause a condition known as torticollis, in which their neck muscles are tight. The tightness in the neck causes them to favor certain positions, which in turn can affect their head shape. The doc band is worn 23 hours a day for 10-12 weeks to help reshape their heads.We were lucky enough to find a great place called Vinyl Touch Graphics to decorate the doc bands for us for free.

Seven Months

The twins turned 7 months old on February 3. They are both sitting on their own and love seeing their world from this new point of view. They love to play together and have developed the cutest little personalities. The highlight this month was their first swimming lessons. Enjoy the pictures. :)

Six Months

The twins turned six months old on January 3. I can't believe they are halfway to their first birthday. It is crazy how fast it goes. I feel so blessed to have been able to spend this first year at home with them. Today was their six month appointment with the pediatrician. Both babies continue to be healthy and happy. They are both rolling over in both directions. They are also getting closer to sitting on their own each day. They love to sit across with each other with the boppy pillows for support and play together. They always seem to want the toy that the other has. :) It is so much fun to watch them learn and grow.

Six month stats:
Erin: 16 pounds, 14 ounces
Jack: 18 pounds, 1 ounce
