4 months has gone way too fast ...

I cannot believe they are already 4 months old! This has been such a huge month for the boys! I feel like they are much more aware that the other is there. You can just tell the way they interact and look at each other. It is so sweet, melts my heart!

Drake rolled over for the first time, belly to back!

Mommy went back to work! I cried the night before and that was it. I was worried I would miss all their firsts. After being with them for 16 weeks it was incredibly difficult to only start seeing them 4 to 5 hours a day! Of course, Drake rolled over the first time in the evening with me and daddy :)

Hunter started teething, and Drake was only a couple days later!

They got sick for the first time! Runny noses and cranky! I was sick first with a soar throat and runny nose! So, I am sure their throats hurt too! :(

They moved up to 6 to 8 ounces per feed!

They started sleeping COMPLETELY through the night! Typically 10 to 12 hours!

They started cereal in their morning bottle!

They started playing in their jumperoo and exersaucer!

Drake moved up to size 2 diapers!

Hunter had a reaction to something with a fragrance and got little bumps on his body! He could not have any lotion for a couple weeks. We are now using a sensitive lotion on him!

They had their 4 month shots! Drake puckered up watching Hunter cry while he got his shots. It was precious! I got teary-eyed at this round of shots. Drake was asleep before we were out of the office!

Nadi (my mom) started keeping them during the day while I teach! She is doing an amazing job! We are so blessed to have her for the boys this year! I do not know what I would do without her! I have happy babies and I do not have to load them up in the mornings and take them to a stranger! She picks up the house, and it makes my life so much easier! Thank you mom! We love you!

They only drink 5 bottles a day!

Hunter is IN LOVE with his tongue! It is constantly out of his mouth!

Hunter enjoys standing up, and gives lots of smiles when he is!

Drake has really found his voice! He gets so loud at times I cannot hear the T.V. :)

They still love their swings!

They love their activity mats!

They can FINALLY do tummy time!

They hold their heads up when on their belly!

Hunter has started straightening out his body when you try to sit him in his boppy! So, his but is in the air and he slides down!

They have both found their thumbs since they started teething! They don't typically suck on it, but will chew on it for a minute or two!

Drake always turns in his sleep with his feet towards me in his crib. So, we have had legs sticking out the slats of the crib!

Hunter always turns the opposite way, with his head towards me in his crib. He constantly ends up with his head against the slats and I scoot him over!

We are still in 3 months size clothing!

They LOVE their changing table! Anytime you lay them on it they are all smiles and ready to talk!

We have decided Hunter absolutely has this "sweet" quality about him. There is just something different about that baby boy! His smile, his demeanor, everything! Not that Drake is not sweet, there is just something about my Hunter Paul! Lots of his daddy in him! 

Drake is his mommy in so many ways! He is looking more and more like my baby pictures! He has my eyes, nose, and smile! He is so expressive like me! talk, talk talk, smile, smile, smile! He has a big smile like me! :)

Both boys wake up ALL SMILES, and it is the sweetest thing I have ever seen. Walking up to that crib to a smiling baby is the best feeling in the world.

Knowing all their little quirks makes me so happy! I know them better than anyone else in the world, and it makes me melt! I know when they need to bounce, how they want to be held, if they are tired, if they are in pain, etc. Being a mommy is the most amazing thing I have ever done!

Drake weighs 13 lbs 14 oz and 23.5 inches long!

Hunter weighs 12 lbs 15 oz and 23 inches long!
