Six Month Update

Six months! Can you believe it?!?!? Evelyn and Jessica were six months old on Friday. We've had quite an adventure since Halloween. The girls started daycare on Nov. 9. So far they're doing pretty well. Jessica doesn't like to eat quite as well at daycare, but so far that's been the only problem. We've also been on two road trips for Thanksgiving celebrations; Rock Hill and Edenton. The girls traveled very well and were on great behavior for the crowds.

Towards the end of last week, both girls got their first colds. Evelyn's wasn't too bad--just a little head congestion and some sniffles. Jessica, on the other hand, has been miserable. She has congestion in her chest and is coughing a lot. Poor baby. We hope she shakes it soon.

Friday afternoon we had an appointment at the pediatrician for their Synagis shot to prevent RSV. They get this once a month through March. Not that any shot is pleasant, but these are evidently doozies. It takes some serious consoling to get them through. I keep waiting for the windows to shatter because their screams are so high pitched.

Today we had our 6 month check up at the pediatrician. Other than Jessica's congestion, both girls were perfectly normal. He was very happy with Evelyn's weight gain. Jessica is still tiny, but she's growing's just hard to tell when Evelyn is overachieving! They both got four shots, which they handled better than their one shot on Friday. Here are their current stats:
Evelyn: 13 lbs 3 ozs, 23.5 inches long
Jessica: 9 lbs 15 ozs, 22 inches long

We have our second follow up appointment at Duke on Thursday. We'll let you know how that one goes.

Here's a picture that was taken over Thanksgiving.

  1. What a wonderful picture. Both girls appear to have changed a lot in just the couple of weeks since out gathering in York on Nov 14 and your taking the picture at Thanksgiving.

    We miss you all and look forward to seeing you soon.
