3 Months

Happy 3 months my little chunksters!

(look at those bellies!)

I can't believe 3 months have gone by already.  It's amazing to think back to their time in the NICU and to see how far they have come in such a short amount of time.  They had a weight check yesterday and apparently we must be doing something right because they continue to pack on the pounds! 

Miss Alexis weighed in at a whopping 13 pounds.

And Brother wasn't far behind at 12lb, 7oz.

Hmmm, how have they changed in the last month?  Their cries have recently changed.  Alexis' has turned to an almost fake, attention-getting cry and we laugh every time she does it.  Brother Bear's cry has gotten louder and more forceful and is just...well, different.  Luckily they are still generally pretty happy babies and we don't get to hear their cries too often.

It's pretty easy to get Alexis to smile now, and what a great smile she has.  I find myself saying and doing the most stupid things to get a smile out of her.  Chase is the more serious baby and it's a little harder to pull a smile out from him.  But when he does smile, it's a big one.  Just in the last couple days I've found that kissing his nose gets him to show me one :)  Alexis has also started cooing a little as well, which is pretty cute.

I think they are starting to become a little more aware of each other.  Chase would not take his eyes off of Alexis at their appointment yesterday, which was pretty cute.  I still think she is going to be the leader and he the follower.  My mom puts it perfectly when she says that in a few years Alexis will be all "come on Chase, let's go play Barbies!" and he'll be like "okaaay" and off they'll go... :) 

(both have also figured out how to kick their legs and love to show it off)


  1. Heehee! They are adorable. Yup, I can so picture Alexis getting Chase to do her bidding.

  2. Ahhh!!! They are so adorable! Love the bellies!
