Twenty-Six Weeks Old

Those of you on my facebook saw these shirts, but I will post them in a separate post too.

They are both still in size 1-2 diapers, although for the last week I've noticed Aiden's getting a little snug. I REALLY don't want to have to buy three different sized diapers each week, so I'm trying to keep him in them for as long as I can to see if Isabella will be ready to move up at the same time.

In their six-month note I mentioned their weights, but Bella is 12 lbs and Aiden is 14 lbs. She is in the 1st percentile and he's in about the 6th. I know he seems so big, but you have to understand that they are six-months-old and still in size 1 diapers and 3 months clothes. This isn't abnormal for preemies or worrisome at all, but we've had a few people question their percentiles because they look "normal." We bought all these clothes for them in what we thought their sizes would be and everything is off. I'm just hoping they start to catch up by summer because I got them really cute clothes for a trip we're taking.

This was probably one of their best teddy photos in a long time. They're getting so big! Neither can sit up yet on their own, but they're both rolling over! Everyone keeps teasing me and telling me they're going to be crawling and walking soon and I keep giving them dirty looks. It isn't that I don't want my kids to make the milestones that they should make; it's just that I'm in no hurry. Even if Mr. Howard and I decide to adopt, we probably won't ever have a baby (or babies) this small again. I'm okay with them taking their time (not to mention the fact that I'm not really sure I'm ready to have three kids walking - in all different directions). Needless to say, I'm okay with them being late walkers (maybe this is a second-time Mom thing!).

P.S. If you're looking at the note above and thinking Wow! Mrs. Howard thinks she's pretty fabulous by writing on behalf of Aiden and Bella, "Mama is the BEST!" I did not write their card this week! It was Mr. Howard's first card!!
