5 Month Update

Belle & Finn are 5 months old today! Here's what I've learned so far:
  • Everyone who said caring for babies would be easier (even fun) at 4 months was right!
  • Matching sleepers are fun stuff.
  • Find yourself another desperate twin mom and latch on to her like there's no tomorrow.
  • Bedtime routines are sacred events; revere them.
  • When Mirabelle is hungry, feed her . . . asap.
  • Finn requires a burp cloth at ALL times.
  • Teething sucks (yet still a 1000 times better than newborn two-hour feedings).

Finnlay is 14 lbs 2 oz of pure kung fu love. His current crowning achievement involves sticking an entire fist in his mouth and gagging on it (so proud). He's also mastered rolling with intention (his physical therapist made that one up) and is ready for crawling, walking and talking at any given moment. We're asking Santa for a helmet, elbow, knee and shin pads for Christmas.

Finn would like to remind everyone he declined his nomination for the World's Most Handsome Man of 2009. He will not accept this award until someone finds a cure for annoying little sisters.

Mirabelle is 14 lbs 12 oz of pure, natural spring water. She doesn't 'roll with intention' . . . not when others are available to fetch for her. She enjoys working her core and abdominal muscles with belly crunches and seated curls. She'd rather chew her toes than fingers and religiously partakes in 15 hours of beauty rest each day (she enjoys reminding us Rome wasn't built in a day and neither is perfection).
