Five Months Old

*Consider yourself warned! This is a long one*

On Tuesday October 4 the twins turned five months old.  Adjusted they are almost two and a half months old.  I'm so very tired of the adjusted age thing but we are dealing.  So many fun things happened during the babies fifth month of life. 

  • We went to a pumpkin patch
  • we went to eat at Firehouse subs
  • we went to babies r us
  • we went to rally house
  • we went to the pulmonologist
  • we had swallow studies done
  • we visited the NICU
  • Nonny, Poppy Butch and Grammy visited
  • we went to Mason's soccer game
  • We had family pictures taken
This was a fun month! I have noticed this month that their are things about the babies that are very similar. They are twins after all!  ;)

  • Both have birth marks on their necks
  • They both sleep with their arms above their heads
  • After they sneeze they both make this funny noise like humming. so cute
