Eight Weeks Old
I have to say July 10th seems like forever ago. Have they only been home a month? I can’t imagine life without them.
Kate is still our biggest by far. She currently weighs almost 10 pounds! That’s more than double her birth weight of 4 pounds 1 ounce. She is a very happy and good natured baby except when she is hungry, and then she is fierce!
Oliver is our laid-back little guy. Nothing upsets him too much, and he is easily consoled. And when something bothers him, he has this pitiful, whimpery little cry that is a distinct contrast from Kate’s screeching, feeding-time wails. I call him my little doodlebug, because he reminds me of one of those rolly-pollies that curl up when you touch them. Oliver does the same thing. He was our biggest at birth, weighing 4 pounds 7 ounces, but is now second at eight pounds.
And finally, Willa. Willa is a character. She is by far the loudest and will complain when anything does not suit her. But she is also the most alert and expressive, and loves to be out of her crib so she can check out the world. She is feisty, but cool. She was the smallest at birth, only three pounds seven ounces, but eats more than Oliver and now weighs in at nearly 8 pounds.
