Sutherland Twins: 5 Months Old Update

Hello Family and Friends,

I forgot to do a 5 month update and a couple of you have been asking – so here’s the Sutherland Scoop:

The girls are doing great. They are eating well and falling into routine really well. We are enjoying them more and more each week.

Felicity weighs 11lb., 2oz.
Charity weighs 10lb., 8 oz.

As you can see from today’s pictures, smiling is their new skill and they love to exercise this newfound skill with us (Charity left and Felicity right). They seem to especially like to smile when the camera flash goes off. They are already used to having the camera in their faces all the time. So as soon as the flash goes off, they smile. Additionally, they now respond to us with cooing and love to interact with smiles. What a true miracle these moments are for us!

Felicity is particularly good at this new smiling thing. Last night while she was supposed to be going to sleep, she was wailing. When I went in to calm her down, she immediately stopped crying and smiled at me!! Hmmm, is she that smart already? (Don’t tell daddy or he will increase the required minutes on the cry it out plan…)

Both girls currently have ear infections – Felicity in one ear and Charity in both ears. Last night, Charity’s ear drum burst, so she will need to be watched closely over the next 10 days. There should be no long-term concern for hearing as the ear drum will grow back into place. The sad part is that Charity is our calm baby (if you remember the “Dave” story, she is definitely our Dave – very easy going most of the time). So, she didn’t even cry when her ear drum burst.

We hope you are all well. We enjoy hearing from you. We hear often that people don’t want to call and bug us. We won’t answer if we can’t, but we love to have the distractions of a phone call or a trip to Starbuck’s with you.

Blessings to you,
The Sutherlands
