The babies can focus more now and actually stare at us when we feed them. They are also now reaching for things like brightly colored or light-up toys. Jake has developed the bad habit of grabbing my hair. Another good milestone is that they are routinely sleeping 5-6 hours at a time at night. What a welcome change from the 2-3 hours the first few weeks they were home. At mealtime, Jake eats 4 2/3 ozs. Sarah eats 4 ozs. with Luke eating 3 2/3 ozs. Jake and Sarah do great with feedings but Luke struggles sometimes. I think he may have reflux or something as he arches his back, squirms around and refuses the bottle a lot. We plan to ask the doctor about it at their 2 month check-up coming up.
The babies celebrated their 2 month old birthday by taking a trip to Rockmart, GA to visit some extended family. We visited with my great-aunts Margie, Wilma, and Christine. With these 3 women included, we have 5 generations alive at one time. We couldn't pass up the opportunity to take a photo of this rare occurrence. The aunts loved the babies and didn't want to let them go. It was really a special day! I hope we get a chance to go back soon. The babies are such good car-riders. They slept the whole way there and back. We didn't even hear a peep until we turned on our street. I'm so very thankful they like the car.
Enjoy their 2 month photos and one of the 5 generations photos we took!
