6 months or was that 18 months?

We are 6 Months Old Today!

18 months of diapers, 18 months of bottles and 18 months of baby love all squeezed into 6 months!! I don't know how much I can say this but time sure is flying. I can't believe we are half way to one year old all ready!

We weighed the boys last night and on the home scale, Jared is 18.5lbs, Andrew is 18lbs and Wesley is 16.5lbs (our peanut). The boys are wearing 6-9 month clothes but not much longer. We are wearing size 3 diapers and use about 18-21 a day.

The boys are rolling all over the place and are starting to show signs that crawling is not too far away. They are starting to pull their legs under them and rock but only for a few seconds before they move back into the "air swimming."

The boys are taking 32oz of formula a day. They eat cereal in the morning and cereal & a veggie for dinner. The boys are eating peas and squash and tonight they will get carrots for the first time. Here is our current schedule....

7:30am - Wake-up & 8oz bottle/cereal

10:00 - Nap time

12:00 - 8oz bottle

2:00 - Nap time

4:00 - 8oz bottle

5:30 - Cereal/veggie

6:00 - Evening walk

7:00 - Bath (every third day), 8oz bottle & bed

7:30pm - Mommy and Daddy exhale!

The boys sleep a full 12 hours at night and take two naps a day. Nap times are from 10-12 and 2-4. Wesley is usually the first to rise from his naps as he just does not need as much sleep as the other guys. Andrew sleeps the longest and we usually have to wake him up from his nap.

The boys are full of smiles and they are giggling more and more everyday. We are still waiting on our first tooth but we are certainly close! As you can see in the pictures above, Andrew is really chewing on anything and everything....especially those hands. He actually is starting to get a small chapped area around his mouth from the drool.

Andrew would not move his hand for the "photo session" but was able to give a smile in the second photo I have up there. Taking group pictures of the boys is getting easier as they get older. I am actually starting to get pictures with two of them smiling at the same time. In the second photo, they are actually all smiling but Wesley is not looking at the camera. It takes a while to get a good photo of the boys. Here are a couple bloopers from today.....

Wesley - put your feet down!

Wesley - tipping over, Jared - look at Mommy, Andrew - try not to look startled!
Whoa...... Baby pile up!!!!

The outfits they are wearing were a gift from Grandma Peggy. The following statements are on them...

Andrew - "Patience Tester"

Jared - "Caution - Automatic Sprinkler"

Wesley - "Nothing is wrong - I am just testing you"

These are all very appropriate!

Well, it is 11:40am and the boys will be waking up very soon from their nap. Let me prepare for the next couple hours before I relax again.

Take care - Kellie
