We're 6 Months Old!


I cannot believe my little A-Team is already 6 months old! They have changed so much in the past couple of months and have definitely developed their own little personalities.

Austin and Addie have recently discovered these magical things called feet. It amazes me how much time they spend exploring their feet when there are plenty of other toys to play with! They have figured out how to roll and maneuver  their way to desired objects around the room. The A-Team loves to laugh and smile. Addie always reserves her biggest smiles for John - she's definitely a daddy's girl in the making.



As far as sleeping, they still take 3 solid naps a day. This is great for me and I know that day will soon come where this will not be the case. At night, we put them in their cribs around 7:30 and they sleep until 7:00ish. The perfect start to my morning is when we go in to the nursery and are greeted by huge smiles from happy kids. These little babies melt my heart each day!



We started feeding them solids a couple of weeks ago and have now tried rice cereal, barley, oats, sweet potatoes, green beans and avocados. Green beans still top the list as a twin fave.

Austin is around 15 pounds, 10 oz (based on our super scientific scale at home). He eats 7-9 ounces 5 times a day and loves real food. Austin has 2 teeth and loves to gnaw. Unfortunately his teeth are just like puppy teeth - super sharp! I think that's why he prefers chewing on my finger or Addie's foot instead of his own hand. He can sit up on his own for about 10 seconds before capsizing. Austin has the backwards scoot figured out but isn't crawling yet. Although he likes to bounce in his jumparoo or roll around on the floor, Austin still is my sweet snuggly boy.

Austin sitting....And yes, that is an obscene amount of drool on his shirt.


Addie is about 12 pounds, 10 oz. She eats 5-7 ounces 5 times a day. I don't see any teeth yet but she is a drool machine and loves to gnaw on my hand. Hopefully we'll see some pearly whites soon! Addie has figured out how to draw her knees up under her and rocks before crashing. We expect she'll be crawling soon! Addie is so interested in whatever is around her. She likes playing with our phones and computers or our lips and cheeks. She especially likes it when Daddy lets her drink water out of his cup. My sweet little girl is growing up way too fast!!

Thinking about crawling...
