3 months (and 2 days)

Molly and Jack are 3 months and two days old, but who's counting, right?  This update is bittersweet, because I am going back to work today.  Don't get me wrong- I love my job...  I just love being a mom more.  There is nothing I'd rather do than watch these amazing babies develop and evolve.  It seems like they are growing so quickly, and each day they change a bit.  Whether it's learning a new trick or reacting to previously ignored stimuli, I cannot get enough of their sweet, squishy little faces!  And I'm terrified that I'm going to miss something.  I want to experience all of their firsts first-hand.

Then and Now:  those "coming home" outfits are busting at the seams!

The past month has brought so many fun changes.  Jackson has (mostly) outgrown his colic and is the sweetest, most loving little boy.  He loves to snuggle and is starting to laugh out loud.  There's nothing more adorable than seeing him giggle when we are playing airplane!  His smile is absolutely infectious- it's impossible not to grin when you see him doing it.

Miss Molly is a bit more fussy than her easy going brother.  It's almost like they've reversed roles.  I think that she has realized that crying gets attention though, because her moods turn on and off so quickly.  This is going to be one high-maintenance little girl.  She smiles a lot and has discovered that she can stick out her tongue- what a smart girl!  "Where's your tongue?" has quickly become our favorite game.

They have both found their hands, and love chewing them in a slobbery fury. Bath time is still one of the best parts of our day- sweet smelling, sleepy babies just can't be beat.  We've also adopted a fabulous new sleep routine.  This is such a monumental feat that it deserves a post of its own.  Overall, it's been a pretty eventful month, and I can't wait to see what the next one holds!
