5 months

Milestones this week: Emilia stands on her own with only the help of her arms. William remains the best eater when it comes to the spoon. I swear, Jackson said “Mama” not once, but 3 times. We had our 4 month check-up this week (uh, actually it’s been 5 months, but I couldn’t get in, as usual). The babies are between the 40th and 60th percentiles for heights and weights (for their age, unadjusted). I’m happy with that. I was worried when they came home in the 5th, and then skyrocketed to the 80th. Now they’re right in the middle….

Milestones this week: All babies laughed several times. All babies responded to their names. All babies eat 6-10 baby spoonfuls of organic rice cereal twice a day. William is our best eater, always opening wide, swallowing well, and wanting more. I’m not sure how much to give him. I’ll ask the doc next week. I’m on a roll with this whole routine/schedule thing! We’re doing great, and the babies usually sleep about 10 hours a night! I’m not there yet, but I feel almost human again. Jason and I enjoy the babies more every week. In the beginning, I rarely…

Check out the photos section, we’ve added new ones! Milestones this week: Jackson helicopters around the playmat on his tummy. He’s rolling all the time (front to back only). He also laughed for the first time! Emilia laughed for the first time weeks ago, but I forgot to mention it. :) The shocker of the week is…William! The other night he ate 8 ounces with 3 teaspoons of organic rice cereal for dinner! And he’s rolling front to back all the time as well! So, back to sleeping. We’ve had a few good nights here and there, but generally someone…

17 weeks – sleep training and personality

Milestones of the week: All babies started on organic bananas, apricots, and rice cereal! Everyone eats solids everyday, more than we expected! For me (Hey, I have milestones too!), I can finally tell the identical boys apart. William’s left ear is slightly different than the other 3 ears of the boys. Jason can tell them apart by their slightly different faces and head shapes, but not always. He says it’s getting harder and harder. And the biggie, Da-Da-DADA: everyone is sleeping through the night!!! Thanks, readers, for all the advice on sleeping-through-the-night! Keep it coming! I made some big changes,…
