I have so many pictures of the boys and rarely have time to share them so I'm going to try and upload a few random cute photos. We are hoping to get the boys to a photo studio soon to get some professional photos taken, and maybe even a family photo.
When we first got pregnant with Cole and Breanna, Dug's mom (Nonna) was so excited and couldn't wait to spoil her grandkids. She sent us these adorable yellow cozy sleepers. Yesterday I found them and put them on the boys just in time since the boys are growing so fast, they may not fit them anymore. So I sat them on the couch to take a picture and this was the pose they 'fell' into. I just think it is so cute.
Poor Lacey has been so neglected lately because all of our time and attention is focused on the boys. But even so, she has not shown any signs of jelousy or stress when the boys scream. She basically stays away from the boys and just sits on the couch or by the window at the front door. Although, when we join the boys on the floor for tummy time Lacey gets all excited and joins in the fun and even gives the boys kisses.
So we finally booked her a hair cut and she is back to being a cute little puppy.
Reece has these beautiful blue eyes that I wanted to make sure I documented. Many babies are born with blue eyes but then they change colours within the first year. Here's hoping that Reece's eyes stay blue. :)
February has been a busy month with several milestones being met. Both boys are starting to look at their surroundings and interact with objects. They seem to be art lovers as both boys spend lots of time staring at the paintings on the walls. We've had a few play dates with their girlfriends Grace and Charlotte and look forward to more get-togethers soon.
Matthew has started cooing and is often very content just lying in bed or sitting in his bouncy chair looking at things or batting at hanging toys. But when he is hungry, oh boy can he SCREAM!! He has found his thumb and most exciting of all, he has a big smile which we seem to see more and more often. In general, Matthew is a happy baby that is growing well and developing at a normal pace and his favourite thing is napping with daddy and laying on his chest!!
Reece started batting at objects and rolled over first but seems to spend most of his time grunting and sometimes screaming. We think it's gripe but nothing we have tried has really worked. He does not seem to like laying down on his back and is most content in his swing staring out the window or sitting on daddy's lap and staring at the paintings.
We decided to take the boys to the cottage for the family day/Valentine's day weekend. It was great!! The boys got right into the cottage life... sitting around, relaxing and napping on the couch. We look forward to many more trips to the cottage.
