The pediatrician wants us to wait until they are 6 months to start introducing food so no cute pictures of messy babies for a little bit longer.... She recommends "baby-led weaning" which I had actually just been reading about. It's where you skip the pureed baby foods all together and start with finger foods around 6 months and allow the babies to feed themselves even from the very beginning. It sounds interesting but I'll need to read more about it over the next couple of months.
Both babies are getting close to sitting on their own. They have both been able to roll from belly to back for a while, and Liam is getting close to rolling from back to belly (he gets almost all the way over then gets stuck and starts to fuss). They have both taken their first dip in grandpa and grandma's pool and enjoyed it eventually. They are starting to coo (or as we say, "talk") to each other more and more. Its SO CUTE to hear them carry on little baby conversations!!! They are both sleeping pretty well now too (woop woop!!) so life is pretty good. We still are a way off from being tired every day but we no longer feel like zombies just trying to survive until the next bit of shut eye (by far the hardest part of having twins is the sleep deprivation!). They are both night owls and are up until around 9:30-10 but the up side of that is they sleep until morning, usually Lizzi is the first up around 5-6am and Liam usually sleeps in until around 8-9 when Lizzi is waking for her second feeding.
Everyone is happy and healthy and we can't ask for much more! We are truly blessed to have such wonderful children and hope that they know just how much they are loved and how much we enjoy being their parents!!
