Six Months

Happy 6-month birthday to our two little bugs!
Wow, so much has happened this month.
You've both moved up to eating two meals a day. We've been having lunch and dinner because Mommy can't seem to get it together enough to get up early enough to attempt breakfast. So, we'll stick with these two for now, but I'll have to figure out something within the next few weeks as I think you're almost ready to start on three meals a day. And you both LOVE meal time! I've never seen Landon's mouth open so wide as when that spoon is coming toward him, no mater what is on it.
Teeth - you both have the makings of your two front bottom teeth. They are taking their time coming in completely but I can see (and feel) Alex's, especially when you are gnawing on my finger, and I can see Landon's starting to peek out from the gum. You guys are both little troopers. I know that it is making you miserable and you are constantly laying in a pile of drool, but still there is almost always a big toothless (for now) smile on each of your faces.
You can both roll over now too - from front to back and from back to front. Landon, you've also learned how you can travel from one side of the room to the other by rolling so Daddy and I are planning on going out to buy some baby gates this weekend.
Both of you can also almost sit up on your own. You can both do it for about a few seconds before toppling over.
You are starting to actually like the Exersaucer as you figure out how to play with the things on it instead of just looking at them, and the bouncy seats are no longer a torture chamber for you. You seem to like to play in them each morning while Mommy gets ready for work.
We are officially in the 6-9month clothes size now.
You are both awesome sleepers and your Daddy and I thank you for that. We've moved bedtime back to 7:30pm and you only wake up once a night for a bottle. Some nights you don't even do that but sleep all the way through to 6am! And naps are not bad either - most days you look forward to them and you've moved from three a day down to two. Your nap times now give Daddy and Mommy at least a few minutes each day to tackle the laundry, dishes, maybe eat something, or even relax for a few minutes. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I'm sure we'll have our days and nights where you guys won't sleep as well, but most of the time Daddy and I have it pretty easy. Shhh...lots of people would be angry at us for this.
We're looking forward to the warmer weather coming soon so we can start going for stroller walks again and playing in the yard, especially now that you both are so curious about the world around you.
I can't believe it's been six months already. You are growing up so fast. Just remember there's no rush.

Happy 1/2 birthday to the bugs! Sounds like that are doing fabulously! And both are sleeping through the night?! I'm impressed and a little jealous! :P

Very glad to hear that things are going well. ((HUGS))
