That is what Miss Lily has been doing this past week. Rolling, rolling, rolling. She mastered the art of rolling from her back to her belly and now she does it ALL THE TIME. The second we put her on her play mat she rolls right over. When she gets annoyed that she's in the pack n' play? She rolls over. She's quite good at it. The only problem is that she hasn't yet learned how to roll from her belly to her back. So she rolls to her belly, lays there for a few seconds, gets mad that she now is stuck and screams until Joe or I come to flip her back over. Then, two seconds later, we do the whole routine again. I can't wait for her to learn to roll the other way! No rolling from Charlie yet - I swear he watches Lily and thinks, "Well, that doesn't look like much fun. Listen to her scream!" Charlie's newest tricks include blowing "raspberries" and growling like a zombie. He will just look at us, grin and make this hissing/growling sound - "Hhhhhaaaaaa!" It's too funny! He'll also respond with it if I make the noise to him. He cracks us up!
Tomorrow we take the babies to the pediatrician for their next Synagis shots. We're looking forward to getting some updated weights on them! They are both getting so big. Charlie is already close to growing out of his size 6 month clothes and Lily is almost out of 3 months. Then in the afternoon we're taking Charlie to the GI doctor. Hopefully he can help figure out what is going on with Charlie and get it straightened out for good!
On Friday we received a very nice surprise in the mail. A package came from blog reader Melissa and her family. Melissa sent us a beautiful letter, picture of her family (she's the mommy of boy/girl twins) and a donation to our team for the March for Babies walk. She also included gifts for Charlie and Lily - personalized tag blankets. Melissa said her babies love their blankets, and Charlie and Lily have been enjoying theirs as well. The tags are perfect for grabby fingers! Thank you, Melissa! You are too sweet.
