6 months Now And Then

I wanted to compare Bryggen to Griffin and Jackson at six months old. The twins had their check up yesterday and it went really well. Griffin is 15.12lbs and 24 1/2 inches long. He is in the 50% for weight and 25% for height. He may end up short like his mommy or catch up later on. Jackson is 16.4lbs and 26 inches long. He's in the 75% for weight and the 50% for height. They sleep around twelve hours at night and have three naps during the day. One morning nap that is usually long, a nap after lunch and another nap before dinner thats normally shorter. The boys are eating every 4 hours (7am, 11am, 3pm and 7pm). They have a 7oz bottle and a stage one veggie and fruit. They split one of each. Now this is what I wrote for Bryggen's stats when she was 6 months old: She's 26 1/4 inches placing her in the 75% for height. She had a growth spurt. She's still in the 90% for weight at 18 pounds. She eats stage 2 foods as of Friday and loves them all so far.

Here are some pictures of the three of them at six months old.
And Bryggen

I am amazed at how much these guys look like their big sister. I think they are all precious and if they continue to grow like her then they will continue to look as cute as ever. I am also amazed at how close they are in height to her. When she was born she was 7.5lbs and 19 1/2 inches long. They are staying on target in growth with her even though she had a pound and a half head start and an inch and a half head start. Dr. Carter always tells me I am feeding them right and doing right by them. That's so exciting to hear.
Hope everyone is having a great day. I sure am.

All By Myself....

Let me just toot my own horn. Toot- toot! I have been super mom and I am proud to say it. I have been home all week with my three kids by myself. Daddy is out of town and so is our nanny. It has been tough and long and busy but Mike will finally be home tomorrow and I can not wait. I had a little help on Tuesday and I took the kids to CDO three days, but I stayed one day and got back early the others. My wonderful mother-in-law took Bryggen to the movies and to dinner last night with her cousins. We have a playdate planned for tomorrow morning and then will probably rest at the house until its time to get Mike. After that Mike and I are headed to the Love Worth Fighting For conference that Kirk Cameron is putting on. Yes he will be there and I am pumped.
On another note, Jackson and Griffin will be 6 months old on Sunday. Wow! How amazing is that. I am sad its going by so fast but I do like this phase. They are sleeping 12 hours at night even though they wake 2-3 times for their paci, taking great naps throughout the day, eating like pigs and laughing and giggling. They can roll over from their belly to their back and almost to the belly from their back. Griffin put his paci in his mouth by himself the other day but that was the only time its been done. They are such wonderful little boys and I am so blessed.
Now big sister Bryggen is full of life. She is the biggest chatter box, she has so much energy and is actually really silly. She still demands alot of my attention but I love it- most of the time. She has been potty trained for 2 months now all except #2. I need suggestions for that please. She refuses to go, holds it in til she bursts and bursts in her pants. She holds it for 5-7 days. How in the world can someone do that? I give her benefiber in her juice, I give her miralax after 5 days but that child does not want to go. at all. Now she starts preschool on Sept. 1st and I am excited for her. We haven't really like her class at CDO now that Mrs. Monica is leaving and the preschool thing was planned long time ago and I am pumped about it.
I will update again after the boys six month appointment on Monday.
