Sibling Love

Mom got this one today while I was out stocking up at Costco. It is the best yet!

Two babies, two personalities

Gwen is such a lady and Grady is such a man. Gwen eats slow and is so gentle. Grady eats fast and grunts a lot. Grady is pretty laid back. Both seem to be ok with baths, although the second one to get a bath gets stuck hitting the cold tub from the first. They are both still smiling, but not sure what makes them smile. Grady breathes loud and you can hardly hear Gwen breathe. In the middle of the night Neal has to wake Gwen to make sure she is ok. Gwen likes her pacifier at night and Grady prefers the white noise machine. Grady makes every noise first before he cries. He is very patient. Gwen cries right away when she wants something. Grady is in 0-3 month clothes and has been for a while. Gwen can just barely fit into her newborn stuff. Both babies love to lay on their backs and do the crawl stroke constantly. They will both be excellent swimmers. Both babies are perfect.

6 weeks

Gwen is weighing in at eight and a half pounds. Grady is weighing about nine and a half pounds. This is just a guess with me standing on the scale with them. Gwen has a much longer torso than her brother. Both babies have been very good. Very rarely do they have meltdowns at the same time, let alone at all. They are starting to go 4 hour stretches at night. It is not consistent, but we will get there. Wednesday we are moving into a rental house until ours is completed. Total damage on our house was $110,000. I am hoping to get the babies in a crib Wednesday night, they might even be moved to their own room! We will see.
