I am so excited for my twins! They are progressing phenomenally. I can’t believe we are halfway through our babies first six months of life. It’s amazing what we have gone through in just half a year. Before we had the babies, time flew by. A year would roll around before either of us new it. Now, looking back it’s like a double edged sword. So much has happened since July that it feels like ages ago. It’s hard to even think about life without the twins. On the other hand, they have grown so quickly and this is a really exciting time. Here is a brief recap of the six month progress of my twin babies.
All our training is paying off. Both twins are on their way to crawling, probably within the next two weeks. They have become a lot more mobile. We can’t leave them in one spot for a minute and count on them still being their when we come back. Gwendolyn is especially adept at rolling and she has been lifting her belly off the ground. Beyond that they have taken active interest in their toys and are more fun to interact with. They also engage and take a special interest in each other. They cry a lot less and are generally a lot of fun. This morning I got down on the floor to be with them and Lawson looked at me and smiled. That was priceless.
Their sitting up posture is also improving, as is their balance. Lawson has this funny way of sitting in his chair or the bathtub where he stretches his arms out to dangle over the sides.
In the solid food department, feeding them is a total experience. they love it. Lawson is surprisingly neat under the circumstances. They both love the change, but Gwendolyn goes nuts over it. I love the way her eyes grow really large and she starts flapping her arms like a seal. Her mouth opens wide with excited anticipation. They babble a lot. She makes very funny sounds with her tongue, while he likes to experiment with his vocal range. I wonder if he is trying to sing. His favorite song seems to be “Tossed Salads and Scrambled Eggs”. It always gets his attention, whether it’s me singing, or Kelsey Grammer.
Things have really gotten lively around here. I’m so proud of them both. I can’t wait until we are able to give them fruits and vegetables. I let them both try the tiniest bit of banana the other day. He did not care for it, but she went from confused to delighted in a fraction of a second. So cute to see.
