Silly Billyness: Showoff + 3 Month Twin Survival Log

I think our Silly Billy is starting to really miss California (me too). While he often puts in a request to go to Disneyland or the beach (how I wish we could!!!), a few weeks ago, he made the request for somewhere a little less expected: William asked to go back home.


William’s vocabulary and memory are growing by leaps and bounds. We recorded this gem of the “ABC’s”, luckily before he discovered that the alphabet contained more than 3 letters.

In other news, we survived the first 3 months with the twins!!! It’s hard to tell who’s the bigger one now; I think Lily is longer, but Caleb might be wider.

They are getting more smiley and interactive.  Big shocker is that Caleb smiles and coos more than Lily now.  It’s funny because his non-smiling face seems so serious, while Lily’s seems so much more pleasant even when she’s not smiling. Both babies mostly ignore each other (and are ignored by Big Brother Billy), but every so often we find them doing things like this:

Lily eats Caleb's feet

Both are (mostly) sleeping through the night.  Caleb more often than Lily.  They go to bed at 6:30pm and Lily wants to eat around 4am, and then Caleb wakes up at 5:45am so that’s when we tend to get up for the day. Not a huge fan of his chosen wake-up time, but if he’ll sleep better and longer when he goes to bed early, I’m all for it.  But I’m a big fan of only waking up every other night or so. On the days that Silly Billy decides to party instead of nap (video to come, I promise), all the kids are in bed by 7 and it’s so quiet around here and we actually have time to get something done, relax, and/or GO TO BED EARLY! I think the hardest part of twin adjustment is over (i.e. lots of crying, feeding, changing, big brother tantrums, etc.), and we are finally starting to get into our new groove. AND there is a lot less crying in our lives (from everybody). Thank goodness.
