New Foods, Pediatrician Visit & Other Updates

Matthew and Claire turned 6 months old on 6/16. We had our 6 month check up last Friday 6/26. Dr. Navai says they’re doing great. Matthew is now 18 pounds, 4 ounces and is 27 inches long. He’s in the 75th to 90th percentile for height and the 50th percentile for weight. Claire is 15 pounds, 4 ounces and is 26 ½ inches long. She’s in the 50th percentile for height and the 25th to 50th percentile for weight. They received all their 6 month shots and won’t have to go back for another check up until 9 months.
Updates on Claire: Babbles ALL THE TIME!!! Especially when you take her for a walk in the stroller or a ride in the car. She has 2 teeth on the bottom just starting to poke through. She can sit up on her own for a few seconds. She loves the jumperoo, her favorite thing to do is jump in her jumperoo the same time Matthew is in his so she can watch him while she jumps up and down and screams at the top of her lungs. She shows a huge interest in the dog when he walks by, she laughs at him. She laughs out loud when Jeremy plays with her and loves to grab her toes. Her new skill is trying to scoot towards something she wants (particularly any type of paper).
Updates on Matthew: Babbles and coos when you talk to him or put him on your lap. Thinks everything is funny, especially the dog. He has 2 teeth on the bottom. He can sit up very well and thinks that he should no longer have to lay down on the floor only sit. If you lay him down to play he cries until you sit him back up. He also loves his jumperoo, he cries when you take him out. His favorite activity is taking a bath. He kicks the water as hard as he can and has now started slapping the water with his arms as hard as he can. He already seems to play rough, Jeremy and I are pretty sure he’s going to break everything in the house. He laughs out loud when you talk to him and is starting to be ticklish.
Matthew and Claire have been trying fruits along with their rice cereal for the past couple weeks. They really seem to enjoy peaches, pears, applesauce and prunes. We’re going to do a couple more weeks of fruits and start some veggies at the 7-month mark. Here’s a photo of them trying prunes. Yikes!
