8 Months Old

What an amazing month of growth 8 months has been. The babies are at such a fun age, where they smile when your silly, laugh out loud often and are really noticing one another. This month everyone got sick for the first time, so that was not fun at all. Ear infections took over and for almost 4 days things were quite difficult around here. The babies recovered well so far, and we are working hard to keep them healthy during this time of year. Making medicine for all three is not exactly my ideal of fun...medicine anyone?

The babies are eating at 8, 12, 4 and between 7 and 8 pm at night. They sleep through the night, and how thankful I am for that! Jessy Grace is usually the last to go to sleep and Abigail is the first to wake up. They take a morning and afternoon nap and are eating fruits and vegetables every day. They all have their own personalities and are different and the same in so many ways.

Abigail Ruth

Sweet, sweet Abigail. She sure is a sweetheart. Abigail’s eyes are so crystal blue, they will just melt your heart. She is so patient, and always willing to wait her turn. She has 2 bottom teeth, and is sitting up well, occasionally losing her balance. She is pushing up with her arms and kicking her legs, but isn’t crawling yet. She has the cutest belly laugh, and she grabs everything in sight, especially if it lights up. Her favorite foods are sweet potatoes, butternut squash and applesauce. Abigail weighs 15 pounds 10 ounces.

Wyatt Michael

So handsome! Silly, silly, silly boy. He is so happy, so smiley and unless your slow to feed him, he's ok. Wyatt is fun and loves to bounce, roll and still loves his "man swing." He does sit up, but if he gets too excited he topples over. Wyatt is 19 pounds 6 ounces and is a growing boy! His smile will melt your heart, and he also has this cute little smirk that is hilarious. He has a stuffed animal, Dan, a green giraffe, that he likes to swing with. His favorite foods are bananas, pumpkin and squash. Wyatt has 2 teeth on the bottom. He also makes this funny noise sometimes that sounds like a baby grizzle bear.

Jessy Grace

Last one out, first one to do everything! First one to get teeth, first to sit up, first to get sick, first to get on her hands and knees....she is making sure her brother and sister know who is in charge. Jessy is very social. She smiles at everyone she meets and she knows when that camera is about to snap a picture, she smiles ready for the flash. Jessy has 2 bottom teeth and her 2 top teeth are almost all the way in. She loves ALL foods and doesn't shy away to anything you try to feed her, she weighs 16 pounds 4 ounces. She has a little dog Cocoa that she sleeps with in bed, but doesn’t care too much about a pacy anymore. She loves to jump and bounce and will be crawling soon.

We continue to be blessed with help on Monday and Tuesday with my grandmother, Mimi, coming to help with the babies. She is here on Monday nights to help Jack while I go to my Mary Kay meetings. She is such a huge help and I am so grateful for her health and ability to come stay.

We have moved and rearranged furniture in the living room over the past month for the different toys the babies are using. I am sure it has something to do with multiples, but it is so great that for the most part when they play they can entertain themselves. Unless they don’t feel good, I don’t have to hold them or entertain them all the time. I am so grateful that when I am here by myself through part of the week that they stay on schedule together and don’t give me too hard a time. However, by about 6 pm I am exhausted and ready for everyone to be asleep...they wear me out for sure!

We continue to give thanks for the blessings of happy healthy babies and know that God has entrusted Jack and I with three perfect people to grow to know Him.
