My "Rough & Rowdy" Crew!
HELLO!!! Well, yesterday was our 6 month appointment and it went GREAT! I can NOT believe how much they have GROWN! WOW...you won't believe it either.
Claire - Length 25" Weight - 12# 4 oz
Preston & Carson - Length 27 1/2" Weight - 19# 9 oz
Griffin - Length 27" Weight - 20# 6 oz
As you can see we've made BIG progress! Dr. Stephens was so IMPRESSED! Shocked to say the least. As far as the "Growth Chart" goes the boys went from the 25th percentile to the 75th percentile and Claire went from the 3rd percentile to the 25th percentile. We were ALL so AMAZED! He also said that all of them are right on target as far as a 6 month old goes. AND...get this...he believes Miss Claire will be getting her teeth first! All kiddos are rolling over front to back and back to front. All are bearing weight on their feet except for Carson. He doesn't think that's necessary right now. All are sitting up but only for a few seconds. Carson sits up the best. Claire is the most limber! Preston is scooting on his stomach. Carson and Preston both are doing that "bucking thing" and trying to attempt to move across the floor that way. They are all "babbling" now and spitting as well as making very strange noises. The giggling is contagious and I'm going to have to record it for you guys. You'll LOVE it. Anyway, lots of FUN stuff! Our next venture is FOOD! YEP! GET READY! LET THE MESS BEGIN!
Lots of you have asked how the trip went for us yesterday with the stroller and everything. Well, first...we want to say "THANK YOU" to the Dobrinski's from Okeene for the stroller. They have quads that are 12 now and they let us use their stroller. Its works great! About the trip...well it was a little CRAZY and a LOT of WORK! I only thought we got a LOT of LOOKS when we were carrying FOUR BABIES around. WELL...we actually stopped traffic in the stroller. People stopped at the intersection by the doctor's office to look at us and laugh a little. In the doctor's office we had a little bit of a hard time maneuvering around but we made it. People just watched and were pretty much speechless. Dr. Stephens just laughed. The babies were so good and so was Parker. Mom and I were worn out but we had a good time. My conclusion...I need to get them out more so I can get used to the work and the stroller. Because I think we have years of fun ahead of us and we don't want to miss a thing! Love, Jenn
