6 Months

Really? Are my teeny tiny babies really 6 months old? Somebody stop time...STAT! I can't believe that Lexi and Lyla are one half of a year old. The past 6 months have not always been easy, but these girls are the most amazing little things in the world. Everyday my love for them grows even stronger, and I often have to stop and wonder how I could possibly love them any more than I did the day before. Lexi and Lyla, your Daddy and I love you both so much and we thank you both for being such wonderful little girls.

Josh and I took the girls to the doctor today for their 6 month appointment. They are growing so well! Lexi weighs 15 pounds and was 25 1/4 inches long. Lyla weighs 14 lbs, 5 ounces and was 24 1/2 inches long. Both of their heads were 43 cm in circumference. Their pediatrician was so amazed by their growth. They are both moving up the growth chart great! It's amazing to think that 6 months ago when we took the girls home from the hospital they both weighed under 4 pounds! Josh and I can grow some babies!

My girls are some tough cookies. First of all, they are definitely not shy. They smiled and just stared at their doctor the whole time. Lexi was even grabbing her stethoscope to try and put it in her mouth! They cried just a second when they got their shots, but the tears quickly turned into smiles when they got picked back up. I'm so proud of them.

And now, their monthly photo shoot. These are some squirmy girls!

Here are some funny outtakes:

No baby was harmed in the making of the above picture.

I'm sure Lexi will kill me for posting this picture one day.
