Happy Half-Birthday, Ben and Ainsley!
It is crazy to think a half year has gone by already. We love you both so much and couldn't imagine our lives without you!
Ainsley: You are still Daddy's girl. You just light up
when he talks to you or makes funny faces at you. You have such a sweet
little voice and talk so quietly but persistently. You are rolling
over from your back to your belly now and we often find you sleeping on
your belly when we go in your room in the morning. You are eating 6
ounces every four hours during the day and still sleeping through the
night. We also just started some baby food and you are learning how to
eat from a spoon. So far we have tried oatmeal which you didn't seem to
like the texture of and sweet potatoes which you liked. You are
getting over your first ear infection and have been fussy because of
that but you take your medicine so good. You weigh 14lbs 5oz. You are
wearing 6 month clothes and size 2 diapers.
Benson: You are our happy boy! You almost
never cry or fuss. You talk all the time and you can be quite loud!
You just started sticking out your tongue (as in the picture above) and
it is THE cutest thing! We are working on tummy time a lot with you and
trying to get you to put more weight on your left arm. You are sitting
up with support very well and like to look around and observe things.
You are eating 6-7 ounces every four hours during the day and still
sleeping through the night. You are not a napper, you will cat nap for
maybe 20-30 minutes a couple times a day. You have also tried oatmeal,
which you didn't love, and sweet potatoes, which you seemed to really
like! You weigh _____*. You are wearing 6 month clothes and size 2
We think you two are just about the cutest little babies there are and we love you SO much!
*Will put in Ben's weight after their weight check Thursday.
