Five and Fabulous

posted by — THE TWINS

We're five months old! I'm Arthur and I'm on the left. Roland is on the right.

Arthur: We’re five months old today! (Well, actually it was yesterday, but Mommy didn’t get the blog post up in time.)

Roland: Yep, and everyone says we are really, really cute.

Arthur: We’re growing and growing, plus we can do all kinds of neat stuff now.

Nana and Roland

Roland: I want to tell them what we can do!

Arthur: No! I’m gonna tell them!

Mommy: Now boys, don’t fight. You can BOTH tell everyone.

Arthur & Roland: Ok – here’s some of the stuff:

  • Lift our heads and torsos up when on our tummies
  • Say oooh and ahhh and gurgle and smile and squeal
  • Bear weight on our legs (we like to push off like rockets!)
  • Track objects and people with our eyes and also by turning our heads
  • Bring our hands together
  • Suck our thumbs (and fingers and fists)
  • Bat at hanging toys
  • Grasp toys if they’re put in our hands
  • Bring toys to our mouths
  • Coo and blow bubbles when people talk to us
  • Roll over from tummy to back (occasionally but we don’t like to do it so we mostly pretend we don’t know how)

Arthur and Apollo

Arthur: There’s probably more stuff but those are the big ones. There are still some things we haven’t learned yet but we’ll figure them out eventually.

Roland: We went to the doctor today just to see how much we weigh. I now weigh 11 lbs 7oz and Arthur weighs 12 lbs 7oz. I am trying hard to catch up but he keeps beating me!

Arthur: And we’re still really little. But we’re super cute, so that makes up for it.

Roland: You mean I’m super cute. You’re just sort of cute. he he he he

Our first time at the Farmer's Market restaurant. Sausage biscuits - yum!

Arthur: Whatever Dude. Anyway, we stay at home most of the time because we get really cranky when we go anywhere. Mommy says it gives her a headache, so we do fun stuff at home. We have some toys we really like to play with, like Octopus, inch worm, links, and our lovies.

Roland: Next month, when we’re six months old, we’ll go to the doctor for our checkup and we’ll also go to a special place where some people will check out all the things we can do. Mommy says they just want to know what we have learned and whether there are things we need to work on more or need special help with. She promises we won’t get any shots there.

Mommy and Daddy carried us all around the farmer's market while they were buying stuff.

Arthur: I’ve decided I like my thumb better than a pacifier and Mommy says she’s glad. Roland still can’t decide which he likes better. He’s not as good at getting his thumb in his mouth as I am.

Roland: I’m trying. I’m better at things like standing on my legs, rolling over and stuff like that. Arthur is better at things where he uses his hands and fingers.

Arthur: Well, that’s what’s going on with us. We keep telling Mommy to take more pictures of us, but she always forgets. Hopefully she won’t wait so long to help us write another update! Oh, and go Pack!

The Wolfpack cubs are ready to par-tay!

  1. They look great! I don’t remember when we started using the jumparoo with Bella, but it was one of the best things ever when she was wanting to try out putting weight on her legs.
