Amelia and Caroline had their six month check-up yesterday. Part of me can't believe they are six months already but the other part of me feels they've been in our lives for a long time now. They are such sweet girls. They FINALLY got on the non-preemie growth chart! Just barely! And Dr. Pope said that developmentally they are right on track with non-preemies for six months. That's what we like to hear!
Amelia 11 pounds 11 ounces, 24" long (less than 2nd percentile)
Caroline 12 pound 1 ounce, 24 1/2" long (5th percentile)
Amelia has really had a jump in her weight. She's determined to stay bigger than cousin Stella who on this same day weighed 11 pound 2 ounces at two and a half weeks of age ;) As Robynn said, guess Stella is the runt of the family. haha!
We were also given permission to start on baby food so today we tried rice cereal. It was fairly non-eventful but of course I'd be a terrible mother if I didn't have pictures of the occasion. Hopefully we'll get some better pictures as we introduce flavors to them.
Amelia tore it up! She loved this stuff and figured out the open mouth, scoop,
and swallow very quickly!
Caroline was a little more timid. She wasn't sure what to think and had a harder time consuming.
"Will it work if I just lick the food?"
"If I keep my tongue out will it eventually work?"
