Happy 15 Weeks!

Miles and Vivienne are 15 weeks old today.  It seems like the time is flying by.  They get bigger every day, and they learn new things and constantly become more interactive.  It's so much fun to watch them grow.

Vivienne has started giggling a lot more frequently lately.  We were at our friends, Eddie and Rhonda's house on Friday night, and Eddie's mother, Maria, found a new way to make Vivienne giggle.  Here are a couple videos showing our little angel's infectious laugh:

Miles gets stronger every day, and he's really enjoying his tummy time now.  He has so many cute mannerisms that I love, like the way that he will grab his hair with one of his hands while he's nursing (he just looks so intense sometimes!).  Miles is much calmer now, though he does still "lose it" at least once a day.  He seems faster to soothe, though, which is a relief.

Vivienne is slowly growing her hair back.  Miles has lost quite a bit of hair from the front, but I'm hopeful that it will sprout back again soon as well.  It looks like they both may have blue eyes, but it's probably still too early to tell.

I still take the babies for walks almost every day, except when it's raining or weekend days that just get too busy sometimes.  I have enjoyed watching the leaves change colors through the autumn this year.  Because of our walks, I'm spending much more time outside than I did last year and I thoroughly enjoy it.

I have so many moments these days where I just stop and breathe in their beauty.  These little cherubs bring so much joy to our lives, and I just want to soak up every second that I get to be in their world.


  1. "I just want to soak up every second that I get to be in their world."

    Amen sister!

  2. I love the giggles from Vivienne. We have the hair issues too, just on the opposite babies. Will is slowly growing a little fuzz on his noggin, while Claire seems to have lost a little bit around the edges. This is such a fun age, aren't we lucky to be home with these cuties?!

  3. Oh wow, you can see her rooting reflex in the second video. I can remember thinking to myself how fantastic it was going to be when Adria stopped with the rooting...and, indeed, it was great.
