Ruslan figured out how to blow bubbles and of course his favorite time to do that is while eating; he loves the sound of his voice (will all of my children have this trait); his feet have become his favorite toy; and he is showing some signs that he might be the first to crawl.
Some of the details of their lives at 6 months (need to record these details so whenever I do get to work on their first year scrapbooks, I will have the information to include).
Baths are 2 times a week and they are still in the baby tub in the kitchen sink. I have such a good system down for the kitchen bath, but I think we will need to move to the duck tub in the big bathtub very soon.
Eating – So far the boys have enjoyed the following foods – rice cereal (only for the first week), oatmeal baby cereal, peaches, pears, sweet potatoes, green beans. And surprisingly green beans seem to be the favorite food so far. After a few weeks of one meal at dinner each day, they started having cereal with fruit for breakfast as well.
Sleep – They still aren’t napping well at daycare. Most evenings they come home, eat dinner and fall asleep. At around 8:00, we get them changed for bed (if they aren’t already in their sleepers) and then Wyatt gets a bottle, Ruslan nurses and into their cribs they go. We are still feeding them before we go to bed for the night to get them through until 6:30 most nights – they don’t generally wake up for those feedings…just drink in their sleep. On the weekends, they take nice naps (Ruslan will nap 2-1/2 – 3 hours at a time) and they are so much happier and are awake to play in the evening.
