Baby news: The twins are 4 months old!

Happy Monday! My little blessings are 4 months old! I can't believe how fast they are growing. I took them to the doctor today and had to get 2 shots and an oral one. Oh, how they cried, but seemed to be doing better than their 2 month shots. They are such a blessing to us. We love them so much! Ava: Weight and height: She weighs 12 lbs 7 oz and is 24 in long. Eating: She drinks 4 bottles of formula at about 6 oz each. She is drinking every 4 hours. I started them on rice cereal right at 4 months after their morning bottle. She is a fussy eater and would rather graze throughout the day. Sleeping: She sleeps after her 8pm bottle until 630am or so. She was waking up at 430am for the past few nights, but hopefully is back to 630-7am wake up. She usually takes 2 hour naps between 9-11am and 1-3pm or 1 long nap in the afternoon. She sleeps in her bassinet (in our room) at night and my mom's crib at nap time. I ler nap in her crib on Saturday and she slept for over 2 1/2 hrs. Schedule: 7am Bottle 8am Cereal 9-11am Nap 11am Bottle 1-3pm Nap 3pm Bottle 7pm Bath 730pm Bottle 8pm-7am Sleep Clothes: She is wearing 3-6 month clothing and size 1 diapers. Social: She is my little smiling and laughing girl now! She is talking a lot more and loves talking to her twin brother. She is responding to us by babbling away. Loves to play with her car seat toys and her little doll. She is blowing bubbles and raspberries. Developmental: She has been turning from back to tummy. She did that a couple of days after turning 3 months. She is up on her forearms and holds her head pretty well on her tummy and reaches for toys. She stands holding her weight on her feet. She loves sucking on her hands and blowing bubbles. She loves to sit on her bumbo seat. Has flipped in her car seat (she was sitting in there unbuckled at my aunt's house), and the bath tub. Likes: Sleping on her tummy during nap time, daddy rocking her to sleep (uh-oh), and talking to anyone who listens. Aiden: Weight and height: He weighs 12 lbs 9 oz and is 23 3/4 in long. He passed up Ava! Eating: He drinks 4 bottles of formula at about 6 oz each. He is drinking every 4 hours. I started them on rice cereal right at 4 months after their morning bottle. Sleeping: He sleeps after his 8pm bottle until 630am or so. He will usually sleep longer than Ava. He usually takes 2 hour naps between 9-11am and 1-3pm or 1 long nap in the afternoon. He sleeps in bassinet in our room at night, and in my mom's crib during nap time during the week. Schedule: 7am Bottle 8am Cereal 9-11am Nap 11am Bottle 1-3pm Nap 3pm Bottle 7pm Bath 730pm Bottle 8pm-7am Sleep Clothes: He is wearing 3 months, 3-6 month clothing and size 1 diapers.

He can sit in bumbo seat but not for long. Likes: Sleeping on his tummy during nap time and talking to anyone who listens. He is my sweet boy and just started shrieking! He is always excited to see people.
