The girls at 4 months!

Lily and Piper










They are now 4 months old and yesterday I set them up to take some pictures of them and all their cuteness.

They are getting so big, so fast!! I just cannot believe how much they are smiling and how expressive they are becoming! We are absolutely loving seeing their different personalities and watching them develop and grow. They are loving their hands and like to have them in front of their faces at all times, especially when they are eating.

Piper has begun trying to roll over. The problem is, she doesn't even like being on her tummy so I am probably going to laugh when she actually does it and then decides she doesn't like it but can't turn back over. It will be funny but very frustrating for her, I'm sure.

Lily is content to lie on her back and when she sleeps, she always has her arms up above her head like she's laying in a hammock. She doesn't care to be rocked to sleep or held when she's tired, she would rather be put down wide awake and fall asleep on her own.

Piper likes to sleep on her side and will sometimes get to be on her side with her head tilted back in an arch. She was like that in the womb, so it's natural that she still does it. When she was born, her nose was a bit flattened because her head had been tilted back and pressed upwards.

They are both finding their voices and love to smile, coo, shriek with delight, and sometimes laugh! It is just so much fun to watch their eyes move around and to see them smiling at you when you aren't even looking at them. Makes me feel so loved!

I am so giddy when I go in to get them in the morning or when I am feeding them their bottles and they stop drinking to smile at me. It makes my heart feel incredibly full and so happy! They are such a delight!

Hi. Your girls are so cute. I am so happy for you. You are just so relaxed and loving every minute. My daughter in law attends your church. She gave me your book to read when I was visiting in Colorado. I actually was reading it when your twins were born. (Her name is Carrie) What a journey you have been on.........but you are now so blessed.

Rebecca,
You 3 girls are beautiful! I know your son is beautiful also! A friend of mine emailed me your blog to read. My Husband and I lost our first born son Jackson Andrew to a major heart defect that went undetected. It was a big slap in the face as you are well aware. He lived 12 days then we sent him home to heaven. I must say it was the best and worse 12 days of my life. Jackson would have been a year on August 27. But we are proud to announce that we just had a baby boy a month ago named Andrew Jackson. He has been such a blessing. I would love to talk to you. My email address is melissaelstro@yahoo.com.

They are beautiful babies, Bec! I guess they won't be babies for much longer though:)

BTW, I have a meeting in Denver in early February...I was hoping I could stay an extra night with you and Jake and catch up...just wanted to plant the seed!
