3 month status

Phoenix (left), Ashton (right) (same below)


The twins are three months old tomorrow. Here are some of their milestones:

Number of diapers used: We estimate around 1200.

Number of times they've slept 8 hours straight. Once - right after they had their first shots.

Number of round trip cross-country flights: 2. One more next month.

Number of colds: 2 each.

Number of times a baby has rolled off the nursing pillow: Twice. Once was only onto the couch. Once I caught him as he was plummeting head first off the couch. Sorry Phoenix, I think it was you both times.

Number of weeks I actually haven't been sore from nursing: About 2. Not consecutive. Hence the mastitis.

Number of times Cash has voluntarily had contact with the babies: 0
So I have no idea how my mom bribed him into these pictures:




There also could be other stats, like how many times I've gotten spit-up in my hair, how many times I've been up at night, how many tantrums Cash has thrown while I nurse the babies, or how many times I tell Ryan not to get his dress shirt on before he burps the babies. I also wonder if there's a way to quantify the amount of crying that goes on in this house because holy cow it's a lot, and quite often all three at the same time.

It sure is hard to get a picture of the two of them smiling together though!


Good job babies! Keep growing up. Until you sleep until 10am like your brother. (Ok, that's only sometimes, but quite frequently lately. Sure don't mind it though.)

I'm a loser. They are 3 months and I haven't been there yet. But we just bought a car so I'm coming!

Those boys are just too cute!! I LOVE all the pictures. I do have a question though-which one is which? I can tell them apart in the different pictures, but I don't know which name to assign to each one.

These pictures are absolutely adorable. You dress them so cute. I enjoyed reading the milestones. Maybe they should get shots more often...better sleep for you at least. You are a trooper for hanging in there with the nursing. I hope it gets better soon.

They are so cute. You are doing a great job Jen. I know everyone says this, but they grow so fast. Bella is almost 4 mo. and I can't believe how fast time goes.

What adorable photos. I swear they were not there yesterday afternoon when I left work. And I missed enjoying them for a full 24 hours!
One day, Cash will be the greatest brother in the world to them, hovering over them, teaching them, watching out for them, protecting them. (Well for a few years anyway, then they will be in his way again.) xoxocyhunsaker

SOOOOO adorable!

Don't worry--Cash will eventually want to play with the twins. Fritz and Lilly are just now starting to play together.

Those 3 boys are just so cute!!!

you two make cute boys. That is pretty funny Cash doesn't want anything to do with them. So have you been able to figure out how that nursing pillow works(babies rolling off... I had a similar experience, I wasn't a big fan of that pillow, so thanks for taking it off my hands) you will have to pass it along to the next friend who has twins. bless their soul:)
