Visitors and all about the babies

Another busy few days with granny Cunnington visiting then the babies met their aunties and cousins (from my side). It was great to see everyone and lovely to see people so delighted with the new additions to the family.

I thought it'd be good to tell you about each baby because they are already very different. Let's start with the eldest.

Charlie is still the wriggliest boy. His legs and feet are always moving. Am a little bit scared for when he walks! His facial expression is a little like a wounded puppy most of the time then the cutest smile hits.

He smiles mostly at ceilings. And corners. He may be an architect. Or a nutter!

Or a drummer as he loves music and rhythm the most. When there is drumming on the telly his little legs go into hyper speed.

He's usually the first awake in the morning (about 6.30!) but is normally easy to get a grin out of. His favourite toy is anything rattley. He loves having his cheeks kissed.

He is a bit naughty with the other two as he has a habit of putting his hand under their bodies just to bug them. Often we find Lex and Charlie with their faces touching as they sleep. They cry when each other cries.

He loves rhythm, kisses, wriggling and ceilings.

A few weeks ago Lex would have been described as our screamer but lately he's taken up smiling instead. He smiles at most people, particularly old ladies who accost us in the street.

He is bigger than the others and has a bigger appetite. Generally feeding him is a joy as he just drinks. The other two are not so obliging.

He generally reaches milestones first presumably because of his size. He was smiling before he was actually due to be born so he hit that milestone quite early.

He's taken up giggling over the last week or so. It's such fun getting a giggle.

He acts like the big brother, more steady than the other two. At night he lies in the middle and the other two just gravitate towards him.

He loves watching what's going on, textures, dinner time and kisses.

Beth is our little dot. As the smallest she's generally the sleepiest. I often have to wake her in the morning.

She is generally very content (although she had her moments!). I am usually greeted with a big smile in the morning.

She loves standing up (held not on her own!) and her legs must have got very strong as she nearly flew off the sofa today because she kicked off the back cushion and flew forward. I caught her just in time!

She is giggling too and did so for the first time when granny Cunnington was here. It was so cute!

She puts up with me dressing her in pink cutesy dresses really well. She is great to cuddle as she curls into you.

She gives as good as she gets with her brothers and can scratch if there's too much roughness going on. At night she usually turns sideways and ends up with her feet touching Lex.

She loves sleep, cuddles, mirrors and standing up.
