Milestones and memories.

Total Bellas is finally back this Thursday, and since the new season is following along with both Nikki Bella and Brie Bella's pregnancy journeys, that means viewers will soon get to know their sons, Matteo Artemovich Chigvintsev and Buddy Dessert Danielson, like never before! 

In the meantime, we decided to catch up with the twin sisters and see just how much their newborn babies have grown up since the pair first introduced them to the world over the summer. 

As E! readers are surely aware, both former WWE stars gave birth to baby boys over the summer: Nikki and her fiancé Artem Chigvintsev became first-time parents to Matteo, and Brie and her husband Daniel Bryan (born Bryan Danielson) welcomed their second child, Buddy.

Now, the cute cousins are more than 3 months old and developing their own personalities, reaching a number of milestones, starting to favor toys, books, songs and so much more.

The hardest thing about parenting a newborn: The lack of sleep lol also teething. Matteo started at 9 weeks!!

The best thing about parenting a newborn: The LOVE!!!! The smiles! The laughs! The baby talk! The baby monkey hugs and holds. I'm just so in love. Literally cry once a day bc I have never felt love like this. He has made me mushy!

My favorite memory of Matteo so far: So many favorites! Just recently I had to leave for a few hours to work. When I walked in the door and he heard my voice and saw me he got so excited and started smiling and laughing so big! And then immediately wanted to get into my arms and he gave me the biggest embrace! I have never felt so special and loved!

The hardest thing about parenting a newborn: Scheduling. You want them to go wild and do whatever they please but you realize that a schedule helps the whole family and a Mama's sanity.

The best thing about parenting a newborn: The cuddles and smell. I soak every minute of it up!!!!

My favorite memory of Buddy so far: The first time he smiled at me. It melted my heart; especially because of his dimples!
