Drake can sit up on his own. YAY!
Hunter is also sitting up on his own, but does fall at times. He is not as steady as Drake yet.
We are still in size 2 diapers.
We are in 3-6 and 6 months clothing.
They had their first Halloween. They wore Skeleton pajamas that glowed in the dark. They went trick or treating with all their cousins in Shady River. Drake did not like the dark spots of the neighborhood.
They took pictures in a pumpkin patch! Of course, Drake spit up in the hay, and ripped a fake flower off a bush.
We had an early Thanksgiving celebration on the Kelly side of the family. My dad moved to California for work. So, we had the full Thanksgiving dinner 2 weeks early! The boys had a good day!
The boys had a webchat for the first time! We are using oovoo to chat with my daddy in California! It is SO neat! He can see everything they are doing! He showed me around his apartment, and he got to watch Drake bounce. It makes it a little more bearable having someone so close to you, be so far away.
They spent a week with their MeMe! Brandon's mom took a week off work to spend with the boys. They went to the mall with her and Papa and got their first pair of StrideRite shoes.
Drake is a pro at holding his bottle. Hunter gets lazy and decides he would rather you hold it :)
Drake has been babbling with his m's for a month or two. I never considered that he would actually be saying Momma. He got sick 2 weeks ago and was crying Momma. My mom heard it and told me. I still thought it was babbling. He was getting tired at Brandon's parents and said Momma. His mom told me she heard it. I have finally realized, he is definitely saying Momma. When he gets tired, annoyed, etc. If I walk out of the room, he will start saying it. He has become my more High-Maintenance baby that he was when he was a newborn. He wants me to entertain him.
Hunter is so much like his daddy. He is laid-back, and can entertain himself. He will lay on the floor and play for hours. He has started loving making the "baba" noise. I do not think he is saying it in reference to his bottle, he is just loving that noise.
They both love to make, for lack of a better word, the "farting" noise. They blow so much spit out of their mouth it is ridiculous. Drake has a dry area under his mouth from doing this so often.
They laugh when someone sneezes.
We found Hunter's tickle spot! His hips!!
If you touch Drake in that same spot, he will cry.
When you get close to Hunter's face, he closes his eyes. It is precious. When I try to steal kisses, he does it everytime.
Drake keeps his eyes open when you get close to his face.
They are in love with grabbing other people's hair now!
Hunter likes to touch my face while I hold him now. He is fascinated with moving his hands all around my face.
They stare at their hands often.
Drake likes to play with my necklace. It is a circle with their names and birthdate engraved. He puts his thumb through it and plays with it.
Hunter loves loves loves to stand up. When he stands with Daddy, you constantly hear "Down goes Frazier" When he sits down, Brandon says this. Apparently, George Foreman knocked out Joe Frazier and it reminds Brandon of Hunter. lol
Since the boys were born I have called them turkeys. I have no idea why.
Drake loves to bounce in his jumperoo. He will stay in it for an hour and jump the entire time. So, now when you hold him he tries to jump.
Hunter will have nothing to do with bouncing. He will sit in it, but refuses to bounce.
Hunter rolls all the time now. He is a Pro :)
They can both roll either way, back to belly and belly to back.
I bathe the boys by myself. Brandon has a fear of them drowning, and wants nothing to do with bath time. So, I call him in when I am done. He comes and takes one of the boys. I can't see his hands since the towel is around them waiting for a baby. So, to alleviate the possibilty of dropping a baby, he says "I've got the baby." He has done this everytime and it is soooo funny. We were required to take Infant CPR since we had NICU babies. The quotes you are required to say are very to the point. That is where we got this from. Random. I know. :)
They still love their swings. I only put them in them when they get tired during the day.
I packed up their bouncers that they don't use this month.
They started eating baby food this month!! I am making their baby food. I really enjoy it. It is very easy, and cost effective. They started with Avocado. Boy, did they make some awful faces. Next, they had peas. The faces were not quite as bad. They also had apples and bananas. They definitely love fruits! :)
Watching them rub their hands on something while they drink their bottles is so sweet. They must have a blanket or a burp cloth to rub on. Drake improvises and uses Hunter's hair sometimes. It is precious.
They find each other funny and often laugh at nothing at all.
Drake's hair still stands straight up. Hunter's right side of his hair does not stand up.
