6 Months Old

Well I am just a few days behind the "real" date, October 7th....BUT none the less, here is the 6 month check up and stats!

The babies are changing every day, it is really unbelievable! It is so much fun to wake up and find throughout the day something different they are doing. They are such a fun age. I am trying to really enjoy each and every moment, knowing I will blink and they will be in kindergarten. Here are a few things they are ALL doing: rolling over and moving their legs back and forth, reaching and grabbing toys, laughing out loud, smiling when you talk to them, blowing bubbles and making noises with their mouths, “talking” to each other, sleeping through the night, eating rice cereal and oatmeal morning and night, sitting up with support… and much more to come!!

Thursday the babies had their 6 month check up and shots. Here is the train going into the doctor’s office!

Whew, the shots are so sad, BUT the babies get an A+ report on their health, weight and development. All the babies are on the charts with weight, not in the highest percentile, but for preemies they are on track for their age. Here are their stats:
Abigail, 13 pounds 8 ounces
Wyatt , 16 pounds 13 ounces
Jessy Grace, 13 pounds 10 ounces

Abigail is such a talker, a really happy and good natured baby. She talks, and talks, and talk and talks….and laughs and just lights up when you walk toward her. She is so funny and definitely keeps us smiling when things are crazy. She is rolling over both ways with no problem and is starting to move her legs back and forth. She loves to laugh and play and her big blue eyes will just melt your heart. She is so funny and her Daddy calls her his “blue eyed baby girl.” Out of the 3 Abigail is the most easy going I would say…she is laid back and always seems content.

Even though Wyatt is only 16 pounds he feels so much heavier. He is solid for sure and looks like a little boy in the face. He thinks it is so funny when you say the work “squeeze” and “kick, kick,” and loves to kick his legs when he is in his swing or on the play mat. He is rolling over both ways, but much better at rolling from his belly to his back. He finds his thumb when he is going to sleep or is getting sleepy, and while at the beginning I tried to replace with a pacifier, I gave up when I had no control over it at night. For the most part he stays happy! Just look at this smile!!!

Jessy Grace, oh Jessy Grace. She is the most precious little one you’ve ever seen…but quite the drama queen. She is so strong, her legs are solid and she is always jumping or wants to stand up. She has this fake cry she belts out when she wants attention and usually is perfectly content being held or being talked to. She is so serious and has learned at an early age how to glare at her Daddy to get what she wants. When she grins you just want to kiss her all over though, and her eyes are still changing colors but are sort of a green/grey. Jessy also has a stuffed puppy dog that she loves to sleep with for naps and at night. She is a good sleeper and my prediction is she will be sitting up first.

All three babies are sitting well in their bumbo seats and are getting stronger by the day. We are working now on getting them to sit up on their own, they aren’t too far away. We are starting vegetables this week, we will see how it goes!
