I have to start the pattern again in about 10 minutes (we are on a very strict schedule around here), so for your viewing pleasure - here are these guys as of this morning:
This was right before his bath and he was mellow and the light was good - so I stopped for a second to take a photo. A few things to note about Hank. He struggles with his nap sometimes. That is why he is currently in my arms as I type this one handed. He is mellow - just likes to be held and doesn't really care for sleep sometimes. Which is hard when his Mom wants to match her nap to his :) He is consistent that he really likes to fall asleep during feedings. Like he plans it out. Hmmmm.
In general - his little personality is mellow. He doesn't cry as much when he gets his diaper changed (at least compared to Lillian). He is a slow eater and burps well. He has the most adorable dimple in his left cheek (they both have a dimple in their left cheek - Henry's is a little more prominent). His nicknames include - Little Chief and Hank. This little man is so fun to have in our lives.
Here is Lillian - post bath. She was a bit ANGRY when I had her take a bath as evidenced by the following picture. (Sara and Greg - thought you would like to see your gift in action - we love it!)
Miss Lillian also has a dimple like her brother - just not as prominent. Her eyes are round, his are almond shaped. There isn't much on these two that look alike yet - but it will be so much fun when those characteristics start to show up. Personality wise - there is already a pretty marked difference. She is much much much more vocal than her brother. If she is upset about something - diaper changing, bath, even the way she is burped, she is very clear that you have wronged her in some way. Okay that sounds a bit dramatic, but it is funny to see how she will exercise her lungs at any given opportunity. She is our champion eater. Gulps her food down which is why we almost have to slow her down. And when she sleeps, she sleeps very very hard. She is very prone to smiling, especially after you have given her food. When she is awake - she is awake, or it just seems that way because her eyes are so big and looking around.
Her nicknames are currently - Miss Lillian and Lily.
And it is time for the next feeding. Time to repeat :)
