6 Months

I know I say it every month, but I can't believe that Carson and Avery are 6 months old.
It's hard to believe that in another 6 months we will have 1 year olds........Crazy!!
These past 6 months have been full of fun, adventure, learning, love, and lots and lots of growing!!
At 6 months old Carson and Avery:
-are eating baby food. I've made them sweet potatoes, and peas. They loved both and are now eating applesauce as well. I think I made a bigger mess making their baby food then they did eating it. But it was fun and so much cheaper!
-love playing in the floor. They are playing with their toys a lot now, so they love being able to roll around on the floor and go from toy to toy.
-are making so many new noises. They have really discovered their voices!
-want whatever we have in our hands. They are grabbing at everything and want to touch and play with whatever we are holding. (Which makes eating out fun!! Avery pulled my drink over the other night at dinner.)
-have a bed time now, 7:00. It's working really well for us.
-are still only able to sit up for a few seconds on their own, but they are getting better at it.
-are laughing so much now. Who knew that mommy and daddy were so funny!
-are able to sit in the "big" stroller now. We got a side by side stroller. They look so small in it, but they love being able to sit up and look around during our walks.
-have started to notice the dogs. They smile at Maggie and Django and try to grab their faces. They love getting "kisses" from their big sisters.
-have found each other! I love it! They interact and "talk" to each other. They will look right at each other and squeal back and forth. It's so cute! They have also started rolling on top of each other and grabbing each other's faces. I can already see a little sibling rivalry starting!
They sure are sweet!

Avery is a very active baby! She never stops moving. Even when she is falling asleep, she is still moving. She usually rubs/pulls at her ear or plays with her feet while she is eating. It's getting harder to feed her because she is so distracted and just wants to play. She is also pushing up on her hands and knees and rocking back and forth. She started pushing up a couple weeks ago and then started rocking this past week. I think we aren't far from crawling. Avery is such a happy baby, she smiles at everyone. She has started grabbing our faces and pulling her mouth up to ours. It's the sweetest thing! She is mostly wearing 3-6month clothes, but can still fit into some of her 0-3month stuff. She usually eats 4oz and is still getting up a couple of times during the night to eat. We've made a little progress with our sleeping situation, but still have a long way to go. Oh, and the tooth I thought she was getting, was not a tooth. I'm not sure what it was, but it's gone now. So, no teeth for us yet!

Carson is his mommy's boy! He loves to be held. He will look right at me and grunt and fuss till I pick him up, it's so cute! He loves to be rocked to sleep at night, but is able to put himself to sleep for naps now. One of my favorite times of day with Carson is at night when I rock him to sleep. He is so cuddly and sweet. He still has some stranger anxiety, especially when he's tired. Carson smiles a lot, and is so happy to see his daddy when he comes home. Nobody can make him laugh like his daddy does! He is scooting and rolling all over the place, and loves to play with his toys! Carson is my eater! He is eating 6-7oz now. He recognizes his bottle and will grab it and pull it into his mouth. He gets very excited to drink his bottles! He has slept through the night a couple of times this past week, but still usually gets up once to eat. He is sleeping in his crib and doing really well! Carson is wearing 3-6month clothes and some 6-9month stuff. He's definately way bigger than his sister now. (We go to the dr. next week, so I'll post their weights then). He drools so much. I keep waiting for a tooth to pop up with all that drool, but nothing yet.

My little Baylor Bear:
They were finally able to wear their Baylor outfits yesterday.
Sad loss for the Bears, but we are still so proud of them!


  1. 6 months already??? Time is flying. Love the Baylor shirts!

  2. Look...they've caught up to the bunny! That's just crazy! How precious they are and progressing so fast! Thanks for sharing, it's so fun! I'm so proud of're a great mom, but then I knew you would and Amber had lots of practice! :o) Just glad you have "real" dogs! Bet Ryan is too! :o) Hugs!
