Dear Scarlett & Rowan – 5 Month Old Twins
Dear Scarlett & Rowan,
Another month of status in awe of you as you develop too briefly for my liking! This month used to be some of the toughest but as you each (most commonly Rowan) confronted the four month sleep regression and your 4th psychological bounce . Your dad and I are tremendous drained, however happily beginning to pop out of it now.
It’s been superb gazing your distinct personalities blossom. Scarlett, you’re extremely talkative – you babble on for lengthy time period and make more or less squealing noise whilst you’re vocalizing. You’re tremendous smiley – if any person makes eye touch with you, you illuminate! Your sister makes you giggle essentially the most simply and it’s the sweetest sound! You love milk, however aren’t very considering nursing so we hardly do it at the moment sadly. You’re nice at tummy time and at the moment are in a position to method up to your arms and get your stomach midway off the bottom. You will let cross and cross directly right into a superman pose – I believe such as you’re going to be crawling ahead of we understand it! You roll in all places and normally aren’t even with reference to the place I set you down by the point you’re completed enjoying. You are an excellent sleeper – even though you regressed quite this month, it wasn’t too dangerous and also you’re again to dozing in the course of the night time (11 hours or so) once more.
Rowan, you’re the sweetest child. Your smile is contagious and you’re fast to grin. You began guffawing this month and it’s lovable! You don’t giggle as steadily as your sister which makes it much more valuable whilst you do. You’re somewhat extra delicate to noise or the cries of your older sister than Scarlett. The surprise week bounce and the sleep regression hit you hard- you had been extra moody, cried extra and aroused from sleep much more this month. Some nights you had been up as many as four instances, however maximum nights it used to be 1-2 instances (when it coincided with Scarlett AND Siena waking up, we had some very tough nights!). In the final week or so we’ve put each you and your sister on extra of a regimen and also you’re each dozing higher – you’ve slept although the night time part the nights this week so I believe like we’re making development. You nonetheless like to nurse within the night time or within the early morning and because you’re steadily the only to get up first within the morning, you and I am getting further cuddle time in mattress when you consume. You’re tremendous cellular at the play mat and at all times finally end up around the room.
Our new dozing time table has made my existence so much more uncomplicated. You’re now on a cast three nap an afternoon time table. The primary focal point of our time table isn’t the clock itself, however as an alternative the time between naps (2 hour max) and you’re taking maximum of your naps on your cribs, with the white noise on, with Scarlett on your Merlin Suit and Rowan in a nap sack with hands out. Rowan likes to sleep on her aspect or stomach and Scarlett sleeps like a rock in her little marshmallow go well with. You’re each in reality just right nappers and typically nap 1.5 hours or longer – I take a look at no longer help you cross over 2.5 hours and every now and then must wake you! I’ve additionally began waking you and striking you down inside of 15 mins of one another in order that you’re at the similar time table all day (I’ll write a complete weblog put up on sleep quickly!) with has helped greatly with my talent to get paintings completed all through the day.
You each like to be talked to, sung to, learn to and performed with! We were given out the process middle and also you each adore it (and so does your sister who insists on sitting in it!). You spend Tuesday mornings with our nanny Dani, and Thursday afternoon and Friday mornings along with your grandma Christy, and we see your Nana and Boo, Uncle Josh and Aunt Claire steadily too. You’re very cherished!
We nonetheless take you on our weekly Thursday night time date nights, however now you don’t sleep via maximum of them anymore. You take within the attractions of the eating place and we’ve confirmed you the sea. You’re each such satisfied small children – you don’t fuss a lot once we’re out and also you’re wide awake, you’re simply satisfied to be someplace but even so the lounge!
I’m so grateful to have such wholesome, satisfied and lovable child women. You two make your mama more than pleased!
