Six months

The twins turned 6 months old last week, and they also had their 6 month well visit. Here are their stats:
  • Colin - 14lbs11oz, 25"long and his noggin' is 43.5cm. He gained 2lbs in just under 2 months.

  • Ava - 12lbs5oz, 24.75" long and her head is 40cm around. She gained 2.25lbs in just under 2 months.
Both of their individual growth curves look great! Yes, they are still small in comparison to other babies, but the important thing is that they're making great strides. Yesterday, a doctor at work brought in his 12 week old son. I'm sure he was the same size as Ava, but I don't let it get to me (or at least I try not to.) She was only 3lbs7oz at birth, so I think she's doing just fine.

For their half birthday, we decided it was time for some "upright fun." We ordered both and exersaucer and a door jumper from Amazon only to find out that the door jumper does not fit on any of our doors b/c the mouldings are too thick. So yesterday, I spied one of those Baby Einstein activity centers on Craigslist that also doubles as a jumper. It's not quite as springy, but it will do the job. And now the kids can go to the "office" and each be at their "desks" at the same time!

yay Colin and Ava!! I'm not sure what I would do without my exersaucer and jumperoo. My kids just love them - your little ones seem to love theirs, too.

(and your kids might be smaller than average, but they are WAAAY cuter than average!)

Nice work, Colin and Ava. Make sure you have regular discussions of your progress at Board Meetings. :)
