Four years and three months

Henry and Norah turned three months old on August 6! They are still really small for three-month-olds (they're more like newborns in size, especially Norah), but we are excited to see how much they've grown since they were born. Here are the details of month three:


  • Weighed 9 pounds 7 ounces at his last appointment two weeks ago, so he probably weighs more than 10 pounds now
  • No longer fits in most newborn clothes and has graduated to the 0-3 month sizes
  • Still isn't sleeping in his crib, but sleeps really well in his rocker most of the time
  • Loves having his head stroked and will smile and coo a little
  • Has discovered his hands and likes to suck on them if his pacifier isn't handy
  • Likes his carseat now and enjoys looking around and going for rides
  • Has decidedly blue eyes (though they could still change)
  • Loves me to sing to him and stares at me while I sing (which is the most wonderful thing in the world)
  • Holds his head up really well and doesn't like to be burped on my shoulder anymore
  • Has finally developed his lungs more and has the saddest cry when his tummy hurts
  • Is still snuggly as ever (and I soak that up)
  • Has started smiling at us and recognizes our voices


  • Weighed 8 pounds 10 ounces two weeks ago, so she probably weighs 9.5 pounds now — and she's a quarter-inch longer than Henry at 21.5 inches
  • Still smacks her lips after eating, but not as often now (so sad)
  • Unfortunately has some baby acne that we can't seem to get rid of (suggestions are welcome!)
  • Has the same loud scream and has learned that when she uses it, she gets picked up and snuggled
  • Is still a great sleeper once she's in a deep sleep and doesn't scoot around in her crib quite as much
  • Loves to lounge in the Boppy and see what's going on
  • Has hazel eyes that will probably turn brown
  • Grew soft, fuzzy hair on top again after it all fell out last month
  • Has a pretty deep soft spot on the top of her head that moves when she breathes
  • Discovered her tongue recently and is always sticking it out
  • Loves snuggling on Daddy's tummy and sometimes on mine
  • Is still skinny and long but is filling out more in her cheeks

Andrew and I also celebrated four years together August 6. It's hard to believe we've already been married that long, but it also feels like we've been together forever (in a good way). We obviously couldn't do much for the day, but we did go out to dinner and left the twins with Grandma for a couple hours.

I hope you've all had a nice summer! Blogging (and reading blogs) has been falling off my to-do list with two babies to take care of, but I'm hoping to post more regularly soon and catch up on what you've been doing, too. :)


  1. Boppies are the best. I had one for upstairs and one for downstairs.

    You all seem great!

  2. love the updates on them! and happy anniversary to you both!

  3. What a cute update Lindsay and congrats to the twins on 3 months and you and your hubby for 4 years. I can see how the time would really fly by and it's nice you were able to get out for dinner together. Your family pic is adorable!


  4. They are so darn cute and so adorably tiny but growing so much! Eden is huge, 16 pounds and not 3 months yet.. soo chunky! Funny how all babies are different and adorable in their own way. -♥- Rachel (For the Birds)
