Lukas and Jasper were born February 18th (two weeks early), so they're now 14 weeks and 2 days old. Is it not ridiculous that I still know their exact age? Yikes! They are getting really big. They wear all 6-12 months sized clothes, and probably weigh 14 and 16 pounds, if not more. They both can roll over from belly to back, but don't do it that often. They really like to be naked. I get them naked several times a day just for the instant calm. I just started putting Luke (bigger babe) in my kelty kids backpack. I know they're not supposed to go in there until they can sit unassisted, but I was going NUTS! They both hate strollers, and I was getting quite house-bound. Luke does great in the backpack, though. He has very good head/neck control, and can sit unassisted when propped just fine. So now I wear Jasper in the front pack, and Luke in the backpack, and we are once again mobile (they used to like being double-slung, but not anymore b/c they have to be in the lying down position when I wear both slings at once)!
They each had a cold around six weeks. We, too, have been battling thrush pretty much since birth. Boobykinmama: How did you get rid of your thrush? I am getting desperate. Otherwise, babes are healthy and happy. We're not vaxing yet either.
Hope the other Feb babies are doing well too!
Mindfully mothering SIX kids (ages 5, 6, 8, 9, 11 & 11) in a small house with a lot of love.
