Baby News: The twins are 7 months old












Ava:

Weight and height: She weighs 14 lbs 15 oz. (I took them to the doctor on 2/12. They were 7 months on 2/9).

Eating: She drinks 4 bottles of formula at about 7 oz each. She is drinking every 4 hours. She is eating banana rice cereal and trying different veggies for lunch. She is still such a great eater!

Sleeping: She sleeps after her 730pm bottle until 730am or so. We had a couple nights she was not sleeping well and we found out she had an ear infection : (

Schedule: 8am Bottle
9am Cereal or fruit
10-11am Nap
12pm Lunch (1 veggie at a time)
1230 pm Bottle
1-3pm Nap
4pm Bottle
7pm Bath
730pm Bottle
8pm-7am Sleep

Clothes: She is wearing 6-9 month clothing and size 3 diapers.

Social: She is getting more social and smiling at people (strangers). She is babbling more and still saying "ma or me". She definitely voices joy and anger. She responds to her name. If I never wrote it on here, she lets you know what she wants when she wants it all.the.time.

Developmental: She picks up dropped toys, feeds herself a cookie (teething one), starting to bang toys. Sitting on her own for couple of minutes at a time. Starting to scoot around on her belly and working on pulling up on all fours.

Likes: Jumping in exersaucer, and playing. Loves to play in her play pen with her toys. And sucking on her thumb to go to sleep. Loves pulling hair!

Health: She is on her 3rd ear infection in 2 months : ( They both got mild case of RSV. It did pass quickly, but it was a miserable couple of weeks.

Aiden:

Weight and height: My big boy is 15 lbs 13 oz (2/12).

Eating: He drinks 4 bottles of formula at about 7 oz each. He is drinking every 4 hours. He is eating cereal but doesn't care too much for it. Also eats one veggie for lunch.

Sleeping: He sleeps after his 730pm bottle until 7am or so. He got his first tooth at 6 months, and a week later the 2nd bottom one came in. He was in pain and did not sleep much those couple of weeks. Then he got sick and another miserable couple of weeks. I am glad to say he has been sleeping much better these last few days.

Schedule: 8am Bottle
9am Cereal with fruit
10-11am Nap
12pm Lunch (veggie)
1230pm Bottle
1-3pm Nap
4pm Bottle
7pm Bath
730pm Bottle
8pm-7am Sleep

Clothes: He is wearing 6-9 month clothing and size 3 diapers.

Social: Still loves to talk (babble) to everyone. Starting to say "ma". Can voice attitudes such as joy and anger. Can answer to his name.

Developmental: Sitting a bit more on his own. Reaching for his feet and toes but can't grab them yet. Will roll all over in his crib and even scoots on his back, using his head. Can feed himself a teething cookie and banging toys on surfaces.


Likes: To pull hair, even more so than Ava. Looking around at everything. Being tickled. Playing in his playpen and floor time. Cuddling with mommy. Moving around like a little snake. He is definitely a mover.

Health: Aiden got a mild case of RSV and we had to use nebulizer for 2 nights. He is doing much better now. Thank God!

It has been a rough month with teeth for Aiden, sickness for both and many weeks of sleepless nights. I am glad to see them doing much better and sleeping well again. I finally got rid of their 6 month clothes. Sad to pack those up. They are growing so quick!
