Twindom: Five Months

My darling boys,

Five months of Tripp and Davy! You boys are getting so so big.  This month you both rolled over!  You used to accidentally roll when you were little bitty things, but now you can do in intentionally. We had been singing and practicing for a few weeks and on Sunday June 2, Tripp rolled for the first time.  I got so excited and pulled out the camera for you to do it again and managed to get Davy's first roll too! 


Watching you grow and explore the world around you brings me more joy than you can imagine.  Your fasciation with absolutely everything is enchanting.  Hands!!! Toes!!! Doggy!!! Ceiling fan!! Lights!! Everything is new and exciting and wonderful. 

This month has been joyfully uneventful.  Until now, your world has been limited to family for the most part.  Now you are big and strong and we can start letting you meet more people!   We went to a BBQ and you got to meet some of Mommy and Daddy's friends from college which was really special.  We also went to a BBQ with family and you wore your cool shades for the first time.  We went to the Isis Parenting Grand Opening Event and you were stars!  You played in the play area and all of the big wigs got to see the new center in action.  We continued our frequent walking and still enjoy walks around Northpark so you can see all of the people.

You are still my social little baby, but you are developing physically too!  In fact, you decided you needed to cement your big brother status and roll first!  It was only by a few minutes, but you're only a minute older so I guess that makes sense.  I love you little man!



Your big brother surpassed you in weight this month, but you are still longer than him.  You boys are so very different: personality, size, proportions, likes.  You didn't roll first, but you did do the first full roll.  The night after you rolled for the first time, I watched you on the video monitor as you rolled back and forth across the crib in both directions.  You worked in your crib for almost an hour on mastering your new skill.  The next day you started barrel rolling to chase the dog around the room!

My boys,
You are my little men.  Your Daddy and I are so blessed that you joined our family and we can't imagine a life without your smiles and joy. 

I'll love you forever,
I'll like you for always,
as long as I'm living
my babies you'll be.
Loving you forever,
