Titus 2:11-13

"For the grace of God has appeared, bringing salvation to all men, instructing us to deny ungodliness and worldly desires and to live sensibly, righteously and godly in the present age, looking for the blessed hope and the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Christ Jesus."

6 Months, 10 Things, and 4 Reasons...

Where does the time go? December is already half over, 2010 is almost here, and my baby girls are 6 1/2 months old! On Friday I took them to their 6-month well child exam, and here is what we learned....

Isabel
Length: 24 in (5-10th percentile)
Weight: 13 lbs (5-10th percentile)

Elliana
Length: 25 3/4 in (50th percentile)
Weight: 14 lbs 2 oz (10-25th percentile)

Developmentally speaking, we are really getting into a fun stage with the girls. In addition to doing all the things growing babies do, they are starting to interact with each other and with Abel and Amariah; and that has been truly amazing to watch.

10 Things About Isabel at 6 Months
  • getting closer to sitting up without help
  • reaches for everything
  • laughs silently or with her fist in her mouth most of the time
  • loves to be "in the action"
  • stands on her tiptoes (with support)
  • busts her legs out of all snap-up sleepers
  • holds her toes
  • plays with her voice by gurgling or inhaling loudly (and subsequently choking herself)
  • moves around the floor by spinning and "crab walking" (lifting her butt off the floor and pushing with her feet)
  • sleeps on her side with her arms over her face
10 Things About Elliana at 6 Months
  • sits with help
  • strives to have her feet within reach of anything she can kick
  • stifles her laugh by stuffing her fist in her mouth
  • loves to be held or to lay at our feet
  • stands (with support) for a time before decidedly and heavily collapsing onto her butt
  • lying flat on her back, holds her arms and legs out stiff just above the floor and twirls her wrists and ankles
  • holds her toes
  • plays with her voice by loudly squealing, "coughing," and spitting
  • tries to scoot and/or express excitement by doing the "worm squirm" (writhing her head and body in a snake-like fashion)
  • sleeps and eats with her hands resting on the top of her head
And finally,...
