Stretch time

Some more photos of Claire and Charlotte (left and right respectively) having time to stretch. They are both doing well and sleeping through till 2-3am in the morning which gives Alison more uninterrupted sleep. They will go for their 3 month weight check early next week.

More tummy time!

This is rapidly becoming the family's favourite time of day. Louise particularly enjoys encouraging her sisters and reading to them (or providing reading materials to daddy or mummy).

Daycare picnic at Duke gardens

On Saturday Louise went to a Two's class picnic at Duke gardens in Durham. Most of her class were there including Louise's good friend Katie. They all had fun feeding the ducks and fish, looking at the different flowers before having the picnic on the grass.

Tummy time begins

We have recently started tummy time for Charlotte and Claire. They are both enjoying more than Louise did at their age. Louise decided it looked fun and has joined in!

2 month check-up

Charlotte & Claire had their 2 month "well baby" check-up this morning. Claire is a lil' butterball (9 lbs, 5.5 oz, 20.25 inches long), and Charlotte is well-proportioned and at the 3rd percentile for all her measurements (8 lbs, 1.5 oz, 20.75 inches long). The doctor was delighted with their weight gain, though she was initially mildly concerned about Charlotte. She said second and third children are usually bigger than the eldest child, and although Claire (adjusted age) is keeping pace with Louise, Charlotte is much smaller. However, after examining Charlotte, the doctor concluded that she's perfectly healthy. They had three shots and one oral vaccine. Charlotte sounded horribly sad after hers; Claire got mad. They're both sleepy now.
