Twenty-Nine Weeks Old

Aiden and Isabella are both in 3 month and 3-6 month clothes. They are both still in size 1 diapers. They aren't sitting yet at all, but Connor REALLY struggled with this too. He was walking before he would sit unassisted. They both sit on the couch and in their bumbos. They both put objects in their mouths regularly and pass objects from hand to hand. They both giggle and love being tickled, although Isabella seems more ticklish and squeels; while Aiden finds things more funny (hiccuping, running towards him, making faces). They both are so in love with Connor! Aiden seems to be comforted a bit more by me than Mr. Howard (Aiden loves to be walked and rocked and bounced, which, happens to be my specialty), but Isabella is totally a Daddy's Girl. If he's in the room, you can bet that her eyes will be glued to him (and oh, it just melts my heart!).

Aiden's Cheeks! Oh! I have never seen a baby with such adorable cheeks. Oh dear. And when he smiles his big precious, all encompassing gummy smile, I turn into a 90 year old woman - in all but the voice - springing over to him saying, "Oh I could just pinch your cheeks!"

Isabella has the most beautiful eyes. They just have a sparkle to them and she squints them in such a way when her daddy is around. My heart just melts when she bats her eyes and looks up at us - just wanting to soak in every word we're saying to her, every gesture we're making, and every smile we flash at her.

Can you tell how obsessed we are with our kids?!? I just really think we make such cute babies!!
I'm trying not to worry or compare, but all my friends with babies the same age (and even younger) have kiddos who are achieving more milestones than Aiden and Izzy. I know they were a month premature and that drastically affects things, but I just want all to be well in their world. I know I have a few blogging friends with twins. Are you experiencing this at all?

P.S My darling hubby did these photos this week (wasn't that sweet?!?) while I was starting bathtime with Connor. And oops...he took the teddy bear photograph sideways. Honestly I think I'm going to re-do it today portrait style. Is that obsessive compulsive? I just want to be able to put all the photos up for their first birthday. Hi! My name is Mrs. Howard and I am a picture control freak.

I happen to agree that your kiddos are beautiful! I am constantly showing my husband these weekly pictures :) As far as the obsessive compulsive goes, you are better than I am.. I probably wouldn't have let mine take them! HA! So, I definitely would be taking it over again!
