|I just realized as I was putting these pictures in that I put the wrong lovie with each boy. Oops.|
|I love this because it looks like they're saying "Holla!" and are ready to party.|
They are not sleeping completely through the night yet but Zach essentially is. He'll sleep from 7:15 or so to about 5. He'll then get up, eat, and go back to sleep for several more hours. John or I have to wake him at 7:30 to get ready for daycare. If only Jake were the same way. He still gets up a couple of times a night and occasionally doesn't want to go back to sleep after his 4:30 or 5 feeding because it is already starting to get light outside. It's killing me! Especially now that I am really going to have to be up after that feeding to get ready for work. Unfortunately, I think that if we'd let them sleep on their stomachs more they would sleep better.
Jake is still our smiley one. He will smile and try to be all coy. He's our ladies man and is going to be a flirt. He is also extremely high-maintenance. He will whine and moan when you put him down. Not really crying, just making noise and doing the lip thing. It's pretty funny. Once you pick him up, he's good. He also absolutely loves Olivia. He will smile when she's around and watch her as she runs around. I think he'd rather watch her than be with John and I. O calls him "Jakery" (because we call Zach Zachary fairly often) and "bobblehead" because he doesn't quite have total control of his huge noggin.
Zach, as well as being my awesome sleeper, is my talker. I love it! He will sit and talk to you for a long time. The best is when he's eating, looks up at me, smiles and coos. It doesn't matter that it might be 2 a.m. He's quite a mover too. He's all over his bed, especially when he naps on his stomach. I'll come in and he'll be turned perpendicular to when I laid him down and pressed up against the end of the crib. Just yesterday I was watching him on the play mat and he was getting onto his side from his back. He will be rolling over first. And I think he'll be doing it soon.
Just some more pictures of the boys together.
|I really wish this weren't blurry!|
|Love the looks on their faces.|
