Sweet Potato

Landry had her first vegetable today. Sweet potatoes. She was all smiles. It's hard to feed a smiley baby! She never once made a sour face; she loved it!

Happy girl!

What feeding would be complete without fingers in the mouth?

Landon still pushes out his food, so we'll try again next week!

Landon just happy hanging out.

Who does she look like? Me, right?

Big Sis

Addison had her three year appointment today. She is 3 feet tall and weighs about 31 pounds. She has been complaining that her right leg hurts for about a month now. We have brushed it off as growing pains because at times it is the left, but we have to get an x-ray just to be sure we're not dealing with something else. David said she woke the other night making some weird noise and said she was getting the popcorn out of her leg. I'm thinking that can't be a good thing. But she has been practicing cart wheels, does her spins, rides her bike and everything else without much complaint, so hopefully it's nothing! She only mentions it when she is still. She started gymnastics last week and loved it.

6 months and See Who's Eating!

Landry and Landon had a big day today! They went to their six month well-baby visit! Here are the stats:

Weight: 15.4 (25th percentile)
Length: 25 1/2 (25th percentile)
Head: 16 (10th percentile)

Weight: 14.7 (25th percentile)
Length: 26 (10th percentile)
Head: 16 1/2 (10th percentile)

So we are moving along on the same line so that's a good thing! The doctor said they could start solids. I knew Landry would be ready and Landon would not be. Landry opened her mouth yesterday when I went to give her some antihistamine. Landon is still Mr. Chill and lays around and makes no attempt to move. We know he can move, we've seen him roll a couple of times, he's just quite content to lay there and watch the action. The doctor coined him a "couch potato."

Here is Landry with her first cereal:

Mad, hungry, and confused

Looking so sad

Happily tries the cereal, and might like it!

Is left wanting more!

Here is Landon:

Big sis is very excited for Landon to have his first cereal!

Not too interested already!

Pushes it all out!

As I suspected, not ready, not interested and we'll try again later!

Look Who Has a New Trick

In the last week, Landry has learned she can pull up on her knees. Hopefully she won't be crawling soon! That would mean baby-proofing and I'm not ready to do that yet!

Happy Birthday Addison

Addison turned three today! She started the morning by leaving her paci in her room because three year olds don't use pacis. She did go to bed with it though, so she has not given it up forever. I am certain when we go to the dentist next week that the dentist won't be so pleased she is still using it. We did take it away for two month prior to the twins and then she just sucked her thumb like there was no tomorrow, and her teeth started shifting unevenly. At that point, we gave the paci back. At least it's soft and the suck is evenly distributed.

Anyway, her third birthday was a success. I told her she couldn't open her presents as soon as she got home from mother's day out because she had to wait for daddy. When she got home she looked for the Christmas tree and her presents. An indication that her birthday is too close to Christmas for sure! Here she is opening her presents:

Addison is showing how old she is!

Big breath in.....

...and blow! She blew them out in one breath!

Addison reports having a great birthday. Mommy had to leave before cooking dinner for a lab practice. I anticipated making her favorite: chicken, rice, with mixed vegetables. She loves baby corn so I bought a nice big can of it. At the last minute, a lab practice was scheduled, so I had to leave daddy with two crying babies and a three year old who wanted to play with her new Go Fish game. Luckily, Samantha next door was able to come and play the Go Fish with her!

Her birthday party is going to be at Jumpin' Joeys in a couple of weekends. Should be a good time!

Here is an age progression:

Six Months Old

Landry and Landon are six months old. In the last couple of weeks they both had ear infections. Poor Landry had a double ear infection. Landon got a tooth this week and Landry is pushing up on feet and hands and all fours too! The well baby visit will be next week since Landry is still on antibiotics. Here are some random pics from the last month:
