this much [5 months] | Joelle and Jonah

this month, the twins just get instagram photos :)


My sweet Jonah bear! He is now wearing all 6 month clothes and some 9 month ones! He rolled for the first time 2 weeks ago. He still loves to talk and his favorite chew toy is his own fingers. Verbally he is more advanced than his sister, although she is more advanced physically.

It's a LONG story, and not worth going into the details, but after some recommendations and research, we decided to take Jonah to a chiropractor. Pediatric chiropractics are a hot topic right now, and to each their own, but we decided it was worth it for us. After just one adjustment, Jonah was able to hold his head higher than before and he rolled!! These were both a big deal for Jonah bear. 

His disposition has gotten even better since the 3 adjustments and he is such a smiley baby. He seems much more comfortable in general. Sleep-wise it hasn't helped that much, but we also have been traveling. We shall see if it helps him find a more comfortable position to sleep in. 

He has fairly good hand control and can bring toys to and from his mouth. He is still VERY ticklish and has the sweetest giggle. His favorite thing to do is watch his brother, he will lay there for an hour straight and watch Jarvis, it's adorable!


Oh my goodness, this girl. She is such a little charmer! Joelle has the biggest smile and she loves being around other people. Although she decided on our trip to fuss anytime she saw someone new, I think she got a bit overwhelmed. 

She can hold her head up so well and loves the bumbo or exersaucer. She rolls like crazy from front to back, and can nearly roll back to front. She can now grab ahold of her feet and is trying her hardest to get them to her mouth. She has excellent hand/arm control and is always reaching out for something. She can hold her own bottle some of the time and it won't be long now before she will want to all of the time. She does NOT like you to take her food away!

She has started talking alot more, mostly when she is angry! She has a very loud fuss/screech when she can't get whatever toy she wants in her mouth. When she talks, she always sticks out the end of her tongue, it's hilarious! 

She is now in 6 month pajamas, but they are still too long in the arms and legs, she's just so little! Her eyes are still a very light blue, but I'm not sure they will stay... She still adores sleeping and gets super angry if she doesn't get her 'beauty' sleep!

and just a few more pictures for your enjoyment!

this is what Joelle does with her tongue when she's talking! silly girl...

It's funny how much babies vary in sizes and shapes. They seem so little and they are already bordering on 6 and 9 month clothes! Oh man how these babies are growing! So glad that everything worked out with the chiropractor. Yay!
