6 Month Checkup

Aside from the shots, we had a nice 6 month checkup. I took my long list of questions to the dr and asked every single which took like 30 minutes but hey, I didn't feel bad because I wanted to know. The boys are continuing to do well with their growth. Ethan is 15lbs 4oz and 27in long. Lucas is 16lbs 2oz and 26in long. They've done really well as far as their milestones except for rolling over. They are still not doing this much, in fact I'd say rarely. She said since they're doing everything else they're supposed to be doing at 6 months that she's not concerned, yet. We just need to make sure to have tons of tummy time above and beyond what they had before.

Ethan is doing.....
Sit up alone in tripod fashion
Sit upright with assistance and for about 30 seconds unassisted
Eats his feet
Attempts to sit up on his own from laying on his back
Attempts to get out of his carseat in order to sit up
Holds bottle assisted and unassisted
First tooth is about to break through
Scoots as if trying to crawl while on belly
Reaches for toys just out of his reach
Passes toys back and forth between hands
Puts all toys to his mouth
Loves Food!!! (he's tried squash, peas, carrots, and green beans so far)
Reaches for big people food and drinks
Learning to hold sippy cup
Talks as if saying "I good"

Lucas is doing.....
Sit up alone in tripod fashion
Sit upright with assistance and for about 60 seconds
Holds bottle assisted and unassisted
Scoots as if trying to crawl while on belly
Reaches for toys just out of his reach
Passes toys back and forth between hands
Reaches for big people food and drinks
Learning to hold sippy cup
Puts his fist and thumb in his mouth
Talks making sounds like Mama & Dada
Reaches for the Doggy
Turns around 180-360 degrees while on tummy

They're doing so well; we are so proud of them!! We are looking forward to all they accomplish in 2010!

All babies develop differently and in their own time. They are doing wonderfully and are so cute!!! Happy New Year - are you looking forward to their 1st birthdays? :)
