Big Firsts!

Kieran and Colin turned 4 months old last week, it has been a week of first experiences for them!

They took their first big step towards solid food and started eating rice cereal! This also meant that they got to sit in their high chairs for the first time. They get cereal for breakfast and then again at dinner. The first feeding went pretty well, save for a meltdown by Colin at first. We tried to feed them cereal before their bottle, but he was too hungry, so we gave them bottles and went back to the cereal afterward. They are continuing to do very well on the cereal, and their pediatrician has given us the OK to try fruits and veggies in about a month.


 Rice cereal is delicious!


Can I have some more?

The boys also started day care this week! Dropping them off the first day was hard, especially for Daddy, who has been staying home with them every day the last two months. However, they have been having a great time! Currently the youngest in their class, they get plenty of attention from their teachers and have also been interacting with the other babies to some extent. They are the first set of twins in the program. We are so lucky their Auntie Ellen works at the school and has been giving us photo updates of their first week!

Getting ready for our first day of school!
Fun at day care!
Tummy time for Colin

Last time I wrote about transitioning them to their cribs. Well, this is still a work in progress! We are having a hard time kicking them out of our bedroom, and unfortunately it would be impossible to fit one crib in there, much less two.  Never mind that we have the Cadillac of video monitors, it’s just so nice that they are the first thing we see when we wake up (well, sometimes they are… sometimes though we get dog faces in our faces when we’re late on feeding them!) We’ll get there eventually!

Until next time,
Amanda, Ryan and the Cupcake Twins!
