There's the Three Little Pigs, Goldilock's three bears, The Three Musketeers, the Three Blind Mice, Three's Company, the Three Wise Men, and of course the Holy Trinity...but today, we celebrated the number three for a different reason - the THREE months of life Blaire and Reagan have lived! Today marked their three month birthday! After hearing Abby sing to them over about 10 times this morning, they pretty much spent the day the way they spend most of their days - eating, pooping, sleeping, listening to Mommy and Daddy talk to them, looking in the mirror, playing on their tummies, doing leg and arm exercises, and trying to keep up with everything their Big Sister was doing. But what a day! Three months! And what a glorious three months it has been! They are healthy, happy and wonderful little miracles...and if you remember what their weight was last week, you know we use the term "little" in jest! And just to include you in on the celebration tonight, we thought we'd share with you a few things our identical twins DON'T have in common:
Sleeping: Reagan loves her back; Blaire is counting down the days she can lie on her side or tummy!
Eating: Blaire will finish 4-5 ounces in less then 20 minutes; Reagan takes her sweet precious time and finally knocks out 4 ounces in her allowed 30 minutes.
Pacifiers: Blaire would keep one in her mouth all day; Reagan only likes one if she thinks it's the bottle coming into her mouth...which only lasts about 10 seconds because she's no dummy! Ha!
Tummy time: Reagan can't stand it unless you put the mirror in front of her and she can check out her cutie patootie face; Blaire would spend all day on her stomach.
Size: Blaire weighs the most; Reagan still follows exactly 1 pound behind. However, Reagan is the longest - by 1/10 of an inch!
Car trips to the doc's office: Reagan will chill out in a vehicle without making a peep; Blaire feels it her place in the family car trips to take the title of the Lean Mean Screaming Machine.
Voice: Blaire's is deep and LOUD; Reagan's is high pitched and LOUD. Oh wait, that wasn't really much a different was it? Ha!
Attention: Blaire and Reagan will both respond to Mommy's and Daddy's voice so well; on the other hand, Abby runs from us - especially when she hears "What did I tell you to do?"
