Tummy Time

Penelope's umbilical cord has finally fallen off after the assist by her pediatrician. That means she has had her first full bath - as illustrated below. We are also now trying to do "tummy time" with our kids. Although I'd like to do it twice a day right now we've been doing it after we eat but before their bedtime bottles. Sometimes they go a couple of minutes before screaming, sometimes the screaming starts right away. It's terrible of us but we do remind the kids whether such child's sibling has already done his or her tummy time. Right now we only make them suffer for 3-5 mins depending on their wailing.

Penny's brother has been hogging the swing (we have another but no place to put it). Finally Penny got her chance and she loves it. I think we'll be finding a place for both swings in the near future.

Husband thinks he can eat Penny up.

Linda and Louise come by for a visit with Grammie in tow.

Penny is exhausted from all this attention. She poses pretty with her mom.

Thanks for all the pictures - they're getting so strong. And really, who doesn't love a swing!?

Let's be honest, what infant likes tummy time? Neve does a lot better having tummy time on the boppy b/c it takes the pressure off her tummy (and if her tummy is full she won't throw up). We still do it on the floor so that she will start to consistently roll over, but she tolerates the boppy for longer periods of time.

Everyone looks great!

Have I mentioned yet how great you look in these pictures?!? Of course I also think that you look more like me now so I wonder why I think you look so good :-P ? Don't worry, I'll be popping out soon and then I'll be more like you used to be before you got your body back.

Beautiful Babies. The first three months are the hardest. After that, it is a blast. My are 21 months, they wrestle each other and climb on everything, I have the kitchen table chairs tied together because they drag the chairs to reach things up high, too funny. My husband tells me all the time that he has trouble remembering when they were newborns. Probably from the lack of sleep. Congrats and many blessings. Again beautiful babies.
