6 months old!

Quinn and Juliette turned 6 months old already and it is amazing to see them grow in size and in personality.

Quinn now weighs 17 lbs 11 oz (I'm pretty sure Kiernan barely weighed that at a year)
He is chatty chatty chatty and has all kinds of new sounds, including "d"s and "h"s.
He is a cuddle bear - more than Juliette or Kiernan. He will just sit and cuddle for long periods of time, and he likes it best pressed right up close to my face.
He's rolling really well from back to front but still hasn't rolled from front to back and he's not really sitting up very well.
Despite being a big chunkamunk, he's a very picky eater and so far only likes carrots and a bit of oatmeal cereal - he hates apple sauce which is just weird.
He's got two snaggle teeth that have poked out of his gums in odd places but it looks like we can expect his two bottom middle teeth within the week.
He is a giggle monster - it's fun and pretty easy to really get him going and his laugh is incredibly contagious - check out this video for proof.

Juliette weighs 14 lbs 9.6 oz
She is a smiley smiley girl and super friendly.
She is social and wants to be a part of every conversation.
She's a good eater and likes just about anything we offer her. She eats more than Quinn does which always seems surprising to me. She also eyes everything we're eating with a lot of interest.
She first two middle bottom teeth are almost completely up.
Her hair has really come in in the last couple of months and there is now enough to put a hairclip in it - so cute!
She chews anything and everything. Whatever you hand her goes automatically into her mouth.
She's also rolling really well from her back to her front but not the other way and she is sitting a bit better than Quinn but not totally stable yet either.

Ohmygawd Lara, they're SO cute! Congrats on making it through (what I've been told is the hardest) 6 months with twins!

So cute. They look so much alike while at the same time looking very much like a boy and girl. Good for you for making it this far!
