7 months!!! (somebody stop the clock)

JACK:
-You weighed 17 lbs at 6 month check up and 24 inches long...which put you in the 80th percentile in height. 
You are still taking 8 oz bottles of breast milk every 4 hours.
-You're also eating your baby food a ton better now!
- You eat oatmeal and prunes in the morning, a half jar of veggies at lunch, and fruit, veggies and oatmeal for dinner.
- You still haven't gone down too much on your bottle ounces, and that is ok with me :)
- You still sleep from 7p.m. to 7 a.m. (Sometimes you will actually sleep past 7 in the morning.
- You are graduating from your afternoon catnap from 5-6 (you will just do about 30 minutes now)
- You still nap from 9-11 and 1-3 during the day.
- You are sitting up like a champ and starting to pull your knees under you when you are on your tummy. You are still a ways from starting to crawl.
- You LOVE to take baths and giggle every time the water squirts you.
- You also LOVE Ava...You giggle every time you see her.
- You have the funniest little giggle...it is kind of raspy
- You have incredible eye-hand control and can manipulate so many things already.
- You got your FIRST TEETH!!!  You got 3 teeth in 2 days...your 2 bottom teeth and your top left lateral incisor.
- Your first tooth was your bottom right tooth!
- You are really traveling around by rolling...it is so funny...you go all over the floor! :)
- You LOVE to be outside. We sat you down on a blanket on the porch and you just sat there and giggled the whole time...at absolutely nothing :)
- You still like your jumparoo, but I can tell that you are starting to get interested in other things!
- Nothing is safe within your reach...you will grab anything that is in front of you, and you are so strong!
- You are such a compassionate little boy...I don't ever want you to forget the sweet kind heart that you were born with. If Lucy cries, you literally brake you neck to get to her to put your hand on her to soothe her. It is the sweetest thing in the world!
- I fall more and more in love with you every day, little man. You are such an incredible little spirit. I am just amazed watching you develop into the loving, compassionate young man that you are!

LUCY:
- You weighed 17 lbs and 6 ounces at your 6 month check up and you were 23 inches long. You were in the 80th percentile in both weight and height!
- You say "ma-ma-ma-ma"...literally ALL of the time! I LOVE it!
You are still taking 8 oz bottles of breast milk every 4 hours.
- You LOVE to eat!! You go "muah muah muah" with every bite...hilarious! 
- You eat oatmeal and prunes in the morning, a half jar of veggies at lunch, and fruit, veggies and oatmeal for dinner.
- You are starting to take a little less milk at your feedings!
- You still sleep from 7p.m. to 7 a.m. (Sometimes you will actually sleep past 7 in the morning.
- You are graduating from your afternoon catnap from 5-6 (you will just do about 30 minutes now)
- You still nap from 9-11 and 1-3 during the day.
- You are sitting up like a champ.
 -You are still a ways from starting to crawl.
- You LOVE to take baths and giggle every time the water squirts you.
- You also LOVE Ava...You giggle every time you see her.
- You have the funniest little giggle...it is deep and just the cutest thing I have ever heard in my life!
- You have incredible eye-hand control and can manipulate so many things already.
- You can now hold your own bottle!!! (this is bittersweet for mommy)
- You are not anywhere close to getting teeth.
- You can travel by rolling. You will start crying on your stomach now, for some reason...You know how to flip over??
- You LOVE getting dressed up! You will just pose for the camera... it is hilarious!
-You started doing this fake smile when you see the camera...it is like you already know what you are supposed to do with a camera! ha
- You still like your jumparoo, but I can tell that you are starting to get interested in other things!
- You stare at EVERYBODY! When somebody really strikes your fancy...you will stare at them for the longest periods of time. You would win a staring contest for sure! You don't even blink...I am talking 30 minutes time periods here! ha
- You are such a obedient and compliant little girl. You have such a spirit that aims to please and I want you to always remember the way that you were programmed at birth. If you do something that you are not supposed to do (i.e. squeal at the top of your lungs during dinner) and I tell you "No" with a stern face...You will just stare at me with such an apologetic face, and you will NOT do it again. I need to always remember, as well, that I do not need to go to extreme lengths to punish you...You have an extremely receptive spirit!
- I fall more and more in love with you every day, little princess. You are such an incredible little spirit. I am just amazed watching you develop into the loving, compassionate young lady that you are!

Ack! I can't believe they are 7 months already--so big!

They kids look gorgeous, I cannot believe how big they are. It sounds like you are loving being a mama and for that I am so happy for you! Keep up the hard work girl, because I know it is.
