Seven Months

The boys went to their 6 month doctor appointment at 7 months old. Here are their stats:

Michael – 19 lbs 5 oz and 27 1/4″
Benjamin – 19 lbs and 27″

No wonder they feel heavy when we carry them (especially in the carseats). Ben is now getting 2 more teeth up top and is scooting around on his belly. He hasn’t figured out how to go forward but is getting good at going backwards and rolling to get where he wants. I don’t think it will be long before he is crawling. Michael likes to roll but hasn’t figured out the scooting yet but I’m sure it won’t be long.

Saturday was a sad day as we put the swing in the basement. The boys were reaching the weight limit and we had pretty much weaned them from it. That swing was definately worth the investment as both boys spent many an hour there sleeping. Both boys are getting much more active and don’t like to be confined anywhere. They love to sit and play with their toys.

January was a blur as the boys were sick for most of it.  Pretty much every week one of them was sent home from daycare for one reason or another.  Nothing serious but just the normal cold, fever, cough.  On Sunday January 16th both Benjamin and Michael woke up with teeth poking through their bottom gums.  Benjamin had 2 and Michael had one.  Michael quickly followed with his second one.  This may explain some of the fevers.  Both boys are eating pretty well (although this was interupted a bit with the illnesses).  Both boys now sit up on their own although they are still not very stable so we give them some added support.

5 Months

I’m a little late in posting their 5-month update (but at least it’s before their 6-month update is due).  The boys are both eating rice cereal and oatmeal on a regular basis now.  We are starting to add in some green veggies.  Hopefully, the boys will inherit Mom’s taste for veggies and not Dad’s.

Both Michael and Benjamin are rolling from their backs to their tummies on a regular basis. We frequently find Benjamin on his tummy in the morning now. Michael has rolled back over to his back one time so far. Michael has become a jumping fool when he is in his jumperoo toy. The boys are starting to explore different toys and just about everything goes into their mouth at some point.

Michael was sent home from daycare for the first time for having a fever. Luckily, it was nothing serious and Michael got to spend the next day at home with Daddy. (Mommy and Daddy would like to thank him for passing along his little cold to us.) This was the first time that Michael and Benjamin have been separated for any length of time. They both did great on their own.

Food

Thanksgiving weekend, we gave the boys their first taste of food. We started with rice cereal and have since moved on to oatmeal and just this week tried some green peas.  Michael did better at first than Benjamin, but Benjamin is catching up quickly.
