We are 6 months old!! We have been eating solid food for about a month now and we love it!! Caitlyn's favorite is Sweet Potatoes, Ashton and Brittany love just about anything. I started mixing a little bit of cereal in with the fruit since they really love to eat the fruits. They eat 5oz of baby food with cereal almost 3 times a week.
At their 6 month check up this month, everything was right on track. They are gaining weight and growing great. The doctor was very pleased with what they were able to do at this age, considering they were born 2 months early! She told us that they weren't behind developmentally at all! That made us feel good because we work with them so much at home to get them where they need to be. Kevin works so great with them trying to get them to sit up and getting strength in their arms and upper bodies!
After our lunch time feeding, we go down for our afternoon nap. We usually sleep 2-3 hours in the afternoon. Since Caitlyn was always rolling over, we stopped swaddling her at 5 months. By the time Ashton and Brittany were 6 months, we finally got them to stop using the swaddles. Brittany took a little while longer to adjust to not being swaddled than it took Ashton. We are now using the Sleep Sacks so their arms are still out and they can move them.
The babies have started to scoot around while they are playing on their tummies. I think it's just a matter of time that they will be crawling around. We have started to baby proof the house and put things away that are low that they could possibly reach and grab.
I'm pretty sure they are getting ready to teethe. They are drooling a lot and aways chewing on something. We tried to introduce the teething ring to them, but they didn't want it. Ashton loves to chew on his taggie blanket. He loves to chew on tags! I did finally get Ashton to start chewing on his teething ring last week!
We had our first Valentine's Day as a family. We went to Olive Garden for dinner. Olive Garden was the last meal we had before the babies came home and it was first meal we had as a family alone. I had the babies dressed up in their Valentine's outfits and we had them sitting at the table with us. It was perfect!
We turn 7 months at the end of this month!!! I keep asking Kevin, if there is no 29th of in this month, how do we know when they turn 7 months. He just says, well, I guess they don't turn 7 months until March! Haha!! Yeah right!!!
