The time is going by so fast- does every mother say that? I think she does..... I already miss my little babies. I can't believe how big my girls are now. I can't believe it's been eight months since I had my babies.
The monthly photo taking, good lord, what a fiasco. If you have ONE baby to take a picture of it's probably reasonably simple but with two, forget it. They now will not sit still, and NEVER smile at the same time. We tried taking some pictures outside but all anyone wanted to look at was the grass. So we moved inside to the chair we take pictures in every month, but this month the babies finally realized the chair, in fact, rocks. And rocks and rocks... so all the pictures from inside are rather blurry. I give up.
Here are my best efforts. Charlotte is of course in pink, Katie is in the blue.
Charlotte's World at Eight Months Old:
I love my sister and cry when she's not around. If she's napping I don't even want to play until she wakes up. I look at her and laugh and smile all day.
Now I'm a better sleeper than Katie - I usually sleep all night, without waking up - but I am an early riser, I never sleep past 6:30. I've learned Mommy is not a morning person.
I am the mischievous one, and I have the best laugh, I laugh so hard I get hysterical.
I have TWO teeth, and they are sharp! I'm a good eater and will eat almost anything you give me, but I did NOT like the yogurt we tried this morning.
Everyone says now that I look just like Daddy!
Katie's World at Eight Months Old:
I don't sleep as well as I used to. Mommy thinks I wake up just to get some time alone with her and Daddy (and no Charlotte) and she might be right.
I love Puffs and television and have gotten very clingy to Mommy. At the heart doctor last week I weighed 18lbs 14oz - I'm huge!
I laugh and squeal SO loudly people think I'm crazy! I have the BIGGEST smile
I still have no teeth but I drool so much I'm constantly soaked. I love looking at myself in the mirror. I can pull myself up without any help! I'm still so good natured and easy going, and I smile at everyone.
Mommy thinks I look like her but it may just be wishful thinking....
We both laugh and smile a lot, and love people and especially compliments. We can sit with no problem, and are really close to crawling. We hold our own bottles and can pick up little pieces of food, though we don't always get it in our mouths. We can stand while holding on to things. We think books are delicious. We think the cat is completely fascinating. We are sweet happy babies.
One Month and Eight Months..... we were under 5 pounds at one month old!
