The boys turned 7 months old on Saturday! (Remember they were 3 months early so they’re like 4 month olds). I’m a few days late (of course) but I didn’t get the official 7 month pics until tonight! And they’re pretty hilarious in my opinion. They were not cooperating tonight! Ha! Logan especially!
Ok so now for the monthly update. The boys got their November Synagis shots last Tuesday so weights are from then. We’re working on transitioning from a 3 hour feeding schedule to a 4 hour feeding schedule so right now the boys eat 5 bottles a day (7, 11, 2, 6, and 9). I’m still nursing Mason and Logan 1-2 times a day and pumping 1-2 times a day. I thought I would have quit by now but I’m still at it! Their bottles are all formula though. I’m saving the little amount I get when I pump for after I stop breastfeeding/pumping so they can get the benefits a little longer after I stop.
Here’s one more group photo before we get to the individual updates:

Here’s some Mason pics:
Here’s a picture of my sweet Logan without his cannula! Love this sweet face! He liked having the cannula off too!
James is our laid back baby. This is super surprising if you knew James in the NICU. He was feisty! But now that his reflux is under control he’s super chill. Most of the time anyways. He still gets angry sometimes. But for the most part he’s a pretty happy boy.
James loves hanging out in the jumper. He’ll sit there for a long time and jump and look around. He’s starting to reach for toys too. He even reached for me the other day!
James doesn’t talk much but he does talk some. And he laughs sometimes too. Usually he just smiles really big though! I love his smile!
James is also starting to favor Brian and I over other people. He doesn’t favor me over Brian or vice versa but when he gets tired he wants one of us to hold him. Or he wants to swing. That’s right, we’re equal to the swing.
James is getting physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy at school. He’s doing great too! I can definitely tell a difference with his physical therapy! James rolls over and he can lift his head and look forward on his belly.
James has also had a cold or something similar for the past few weeks. Poor baby! He acts fine but he’s very congested and he sometimes refuses to eat. Yay. Just what we need. But he’s eating enough and he hasn’t had any fever, wheezing, contracting, or other bad symptoms so we’re just sucking boogers, using a humidifier, and putting Baby Vicks on his feet (pediatrician recommended this so don’t think we’re crazy!). He seems better today though!
Here’s a few James pictures:
So all in all we’ve had a great month. I can’t believe my babies are 7 months old! I was looking through my phone the other day and came across pics from when they were just born. They were sooooo tiny! I know that they’re still tiny but they seem huge to me!
Also, now that Thanksgiving is over we can start celebrating Christmas. Yay! I can’t wait to celebrate their first Christmas with them! Here’s a few pictures of the boys in their First Christmas onesies and leg warmers!

|Ha! James and Brian are cracking me up in this one!|
And because it’s Christmas time, I made Snickerdoodles. And Brian and I ate them for dinner Saturday night. (We did eventually eat some soup too but waaaay later).
