Hey y'all, it's Friday! (Insert all the praise hands)


This week marked 7 whole months with my two babies. I still can't believe we have two babies.

So what is life like with 7 month old twins? It's glorious, and chaotic, and blissful. I don't want to pretend that it isn't hard though- it is the hardest thing I've ever done. I'm sure Chris would say the same. 

Seven months in and I love these babies more and more every day. They are constantly learning something new, and their little personalities are the sweetest.

I can't help but chuckle when I see Liam's teeth poking through, and Knox keeps me giggling with how ticklish he is. I will say this though - teething has been my least favorite stage. Liam is partly through the first of it, and now Knox is entering it. I mean... exhausted is an understatement. It mostly hurts me because I can't really fix it. I hate that! But on a more positive note - these banana teethers have helped a ton!

But does the worrying part ever go away as a Mom? I don't think it does. It's definitely safe to say that I am a Mama Bear to the highest degree. They're my little bugs.

What else is going on with them? Knox is rolling all over the place and starting to pull his legs toward his chest and scoot. I mean... he's gonna be walking in no time. I'm scared! They both love when we read them books (yay!), but Liam is most interested. He literally has to look at each page, up and down, before I can turn to the next page. The ones that play music are the go-to - they love Old McDonald and The Wheels on the Bus.

They enjoy walks in their stroller, and wearing their shades. If you don't follow us on Instagram, you should! I post stories of the boys quite frequently, and always photos of them in their stunner shades. Ha!

They mostly sleep through the night, but we do have those off nights when they wake up on and off. Luckily it's usually only for a few minutes and then they fall back asleep. I was big on reading all about schedules when I was home for maternity leave. I know a schedule isn't for everyone, but I'll say this - it has worked wonders for us! I can't imagine waking up every couple of hours with babies at this point... I wouldn't be able to function at work. If you are interested in what schedule we use, just let me know.

We are feeding them baby food twice a day, and they have done great so far. Their favorites are peas (eww!), sweet potatoes, cereal and anything with apples. They also like bananas pretty well. We have been making a lot of it, but also buy the organic Gerber jars as well. So far so good!

Bath time is also fun time. They enjoy it so much, and are starting to splash. Well, correction. Liam - (crazy kid) is starting to splash. Knox chills, and takes it all in. Complete opposites these two. Be still, my heart!

I can't wait to see what new things they are learning each day, but I also don't want time to move so fast. I mean 7 months already. How?! It will be their 1st birthday before I know it, and I'm definitely not ready for that!

Something we are looking forward to soon though, taking them to the beach in July! Scared and excited, and everything in between! It will be an adventure for sure. But isn't every day with two babies?!



Until next time, y'all. Have a great weekend!
