3.5 Months


Abel and Belle are growing so much! They are smiling and Belle is cooing. Both have started using their Bumbos and are gaining so much control over their necks. Abel has rolled over from tummy to back numerous times and Belle has done so once. They are sleeping better through the night, but not all night yet. We usually have to feed them once in the middle of the night, but that is much better than eating every 3 hours like they did when they first came home. They are tracking people and objects, staring at mobiles and their projector images (at night in their room). Belle stared at the projector images wide awake Saturday night for about an hour - we heard her cooing at the images and even saw her smiling at them...too cute. Abel's reflux has diminished greatly, but poor Belle continues to struggle with hers. Sadly, she can't even sleep in her crib because if she lays flat on her back, she will vomit. So, she is sleeping in her car seat right now in their nursery. Above is a picture of Abel and Belle showing their love for the Carolina Gamecocks! - Daddy is so very proud!

Oh my! Your babies are precious beyond words and they have grown so much! It has been a joy to me to read through your blog - thank you for sharing your heart and lives with us. We had our first transfer at the NEDC this past Monday (19th) and are praying that the Lord wills our 3 transferred little ones to thrive and grow. What peace it is to rest in His perfect will for our lives no matter the outcome!

Poor Belle, I hope her reflux goes away soon! Isn't it so fun to watch them grow and learn and do more? I love being a mom! So glad to be able to go through this experience with you.

So adorable!! They are getting so big!! Sorry that Belle is still struggling so much with reflux. Have you considered chiropractic? I have heard of people having great success with it. Hope she outgrows it soon

Preicous! Agree with the comment on chiropractic. Helped Grant...and is a good preventive for ear infections, too!

Glad you all are doing well.

Look at you! You are one beautiful beaming Momma! I don't see an ounce of sleep deprivation on your face! Sarah has to sleep on my chest at night. SHe is a tummy sleeper who has to hear a heartbeat at the same time. So a sling or one of the kiddos for daytime, and my chest or Rhea's for nighttime!

I hope Belle is over her reflux soon, poor thing. THey are both just absolutely beautiful. I look back over a year ago and how our little bloggy circle was encouraging and crying and praying each other through it all. Look at us all now!

p.s. I 3rd the chiropractic!

Great picture! They are getting so big already :)

Yes, we have a refluxer too : ) she sleeps in a nap nanny. Love it! But her's is getting better, for sure. I'm actually thinking about trying her flat again this weekend. We went to a chiropractor a couple of times, but didn't keep it up. Maybe I should try again too after seeing all the comments!
