Happy 1/2 Birthday!

We've reached the half year mark! The babies are growing so fast. It is a delight to see them continue to try new things. Will, Evan and Lily are able to entertain themselves more these days - comfortably pushing up, rotating and reaching to grab and play with their toys or each other. Evan was banging on his baby keyboard with both hands yesterday having a great time. Will has discovered his feet and loves to put his legs up in the air and grab his toes. Lily can amuse her self with anything, happy and giggling while rolling over and over. They still love books but turning the pages or eating the pages is becoming more fun than listening to the stories.

We visited Dr. Mani for the six month check up last Thursday. Everyone was measured, weighed and evaluated. To top off the visit they received three shots each. The doctor was happy to see them continue to catch up on the growth curves. Here are our latest stats:
Weight 14 lb 14 oz (20th percentile)
Height 25 in (25th percentile)
Head 42 cm (45th percentile)

Weight 15 lb 9 oz (20th percentile)
Height 25 3/4 in (25th percentile)
Head 43 cm (25th percentile)

Weight 15 lb 12.5 oz (25th percentile)
Height 25 1/4 (10th percentile)
Head 42 1/4 (25th percentile)

Unfortunately RSV season has not ended. We were instructed to stay dilligent with handwashing and keep the babies away from children in day care or anyone with a cold through at least April or possibly May when we get the all clear.

Doctor gave us the ok to continue on rice and assorted fruits and veggies. We can start trying sippy cups with apple juice and water now too. At 7 to 9 months we should add meats and mixed baby foods. No fish, peanut butter, OJ or egg whites until at least one year as these may trigger allergies.
