6 month & 18 month check-ups

We took the babies in for their 6 and 18 month check-ups this morning and both had to have 4 shots(apparently there is a 15 month appointment we missed....bad parents!). Matt was not high on me taking this picture, but this is a milestone moment and I wanted it captured on my camera!
Jake weighed 30 lbs 2 oz and was 33 inches long while Landry weighed 14 lbs 10 ounces and was 26 inches. For those of you who might think I don't feed my sweet girl, Jake was 21 lbs 12 oz at 6 months! I just don't have control over how much she eats. When she is done, it is over! Just today I tried meat with Landry: turkey and I mixed it with some carrots. She wasn't too sure about it and ate less than usual. We will keep trying though.
At 6 months, Landry is still sleeping great. I am not watching the clock AS much anymore. She is moving to a breakfast lunch and dinner routine followed by a bottle at bedtime. She giggles all the time and loves to touch faces. Matt loves to stretch the kids, and she just laughs up a storm when he does that. She does OK in the tripod position, but we are a ways from sitting up alone. We also saw that her 2 bottom teeth have poked through as of today. I can remember Jake being 9 months before he got his 2 bottom teeth. We were excited about that. She has been pretty cranky today due to her shots, but nothing Motrin cannot cure!

Jake loves his Gymboree class that we attend every week. Matt surprised us yesterday by stopping by(my mother in law had Landry) and playing with us. Matt was amazed that Jake could hang as long as he did from the monkey bars. He just smiled the whole time he was hanging! The next picture was during parachute time. He loved playing with his daddy.

Finally, I picked up Landry yesterday from Mom's Day Out and Mrs. Kathy had Landry sacked out(I can see her fingers are not far from her mouth...where they always are!)on her shoulder, well kind of!! She also had another baby on her lap. It is just something about those ladies. They love Landry and we love them!!! After I loaded her in the car seat and went home, she went back to sleep for another 2 hours and 20 minutes. That a girl! Oh, and yes I have my camera with me every where I just never know when an opportunity may come up!
