And not just survived either, we are a THRIVING family with so much to be thankful for!
Growth: after heaps of growth spurts and challenging new development, the twins are beginning to plateau. This means efficient nursing on a consistent schedule, slower weight gain, and lots of exercise!
- 15lbs. 5 oz. (51 percentile)
- 24.5 inches tall (and always stretching to show it)
- 11 lbs. 13 oz. (10th percentile)
- 24.0 Inches (2 feet baby!)
Nursing: I am becoming more confident in nursing the twins every day. As we approach solid food soon, I hope to also tackle tandem nursing once again.
Quirks: Titus displays his charming smile for everyone he sees. He is also a man-child of impressive muscle mass, almost doing push ups when on his tummy, and fussing to sit up all the time.
Titus is the bubble-blowing-master! Entertaining himself at hours on end, that kid never gets tired of drool running down his chin.
Evi has fallen in love with “softies”. Particularly the puppy-blankets we received from the hospital at their birth. Mama enjoyed some self-discovery this month as she started naming all the stuffed animals. Apparently I have a fascination with British-sounding, old-timer names (Jasper, Wilfred, and Jeffery so far).
Evangeline’s voice has blossomed and we have a giggle box on our hands. Actually, the giggle box is more like a squeaker toy; For example…
She continues to chat and coo at us, her brother, the dog, and even inanimate objects. We have learned to decipher her highly exasperated sounds to be ones of joy and feeling connected.
Goals: Operation: Sleep Like a Baby continues! Titus continues to assume the role of ring leader in the twin sleep circus. But over all, sleep and schedule is getting better.
- Belly laughs
- Thumb sucking
- Grabbing toes
- Talking to each other
- Singing along when dad sings and plays….
These are a few things that make up our days.
Prayers: I am grateful for the increased energy lately. We have been able to realize the incredible community of support that surrounds us in the last few months. Shane and I have enjoyed a weekly “gospel date night” in which we share Gods love with teenagers at a local shut in while the babies hang out with a babysitter.
Thank you for praying for continued purpose and intentionality as we approach the holiday season!
In His Grace,
The Rosty Family
