Baby updates

B & M had their 6 month check up yesterday.

Madison is officially the average size of an 11 month old. This translates to 95% plus on all of her measurements. She is 27 3/4 inches tall. She weighs in at 20 lbs 7 oz. Her head is 45 cm in diameter. She has grown 3 inches in two months!

Blake is officially a tad bit chubby… This translates to between 70-80% on all of his measurements. He is 27 1/4 inches tall. He weighs in at 20 lbs 6 oz. His head is 45 cm in diameter.

Both babies colds have turned into ear infections. Madison added a high fever (102.6) to it last night. Thankfully her fever came down through the night. Both babies are handling the extreme snottiness and feeling ill very very well. Guy and I also got their sickness with Guy having it worse then me. Hopefully he will feel better to return to work for his scheduled start tomorrow.

Blake is sitting up very well now. He still can’t get himself up, but he stays up nicely. Madison still throws herself back almost every time she is sat up even though she really wants to be upright she doesn’t quite get it yet. Both babies wake up very happy in the mornings or after long naps. Blake will give the biggest smile and will sometimes add a hi when he sees one of us.

They are both still waking up twice every night. We are trying to give them less to eat during the night and sometimes trying to ignore her and give him his pacifier. She will not take a pacifier. The next step is to just change diapers with no bottles and see how they do. Both of them are super heavy wetters at night and wake the same with cloth or disposable diapers on at night.

Both babies eat very well and love their veggies and cereal. They also like the sweet/tart apples we have been feeding them. So far they are up to eating pumpkin, apples, sweet potato, carrots, zucchini, yellow squash, green beans, and peas. Hmmmm, I need to look and see what else they can eat now.

Here are some great photos from our trip to Phoenix.
