7 Months Old

I'm a little late in making this post but the babies turned 7 months old a few days ago. As I looked back at the past six months I thought about the things we could not have lived without and what helped us survive and these are the things that came to mind:
  • bouncer chairs
  • bottle proppers
  • formula pitchers (thanks Jennifer)
  • swaddle blankets
  • swing for Bryce
  • iPhone's for white noise
  • family and volunteers
This past month we survived our first virus that hit each of the babies, thank goodness it happened when Daddy was out for winter break. They took a step backwards in their sleeping patterns when they were sick but we are slowly but surely getting back to sleeping until 5am or later. Christmas was wonderful and the babies brought so much joy to the holidays for us. We are looking forward to the new year and all the excitement and first that are sure to come.

Addison has two teeth and likes to bite the spoon when you feed her, she started to suck her toes, she likes to sleep late, she loves Mommy and Daddy's phone and will reach out for it, since she is no longer swaddled at night she likes to sleep on her tummy with her bottom in the air and her head wedged in the corner of the crib. She kind of scares me sleeping like this but I think it is one of those comfort things from the womb (she was positioned head down in a very tight spot, it was always very difficult to get images of her).

Bryce has finally rolled over a few times, he likes to suck on his fingers and drools like crazy, he sucks on his bottom lip and likes to stick out his tounge, he is our early riser and is always the first one awake but is always in a really good mood first thing in the morning.

Collin has two teeth and likes to bite the spoon when you feed him, he really likes to chew on anything he can get his hands on even if its a foot, elbow, etc of his brother or sister, he will spend hours trying to figure things out and entertaining himself, he also likes to sleep on his tummy and will roll over just as soon as you lay him down.
