2 years and 6 months

I'm possibly the worst Mommy blogger ever...because, as this post oldest child is just about 2.5 years...but, alas, this post is geared towards my babies being 6 months old and my "big" baby being 2!!!  Who decided that I was worthy of not 1, but THREE beautiful children?  I am in constant amazement and full of gratitude.

At 6 months, here are our stats:

Marlin - 27 inches long (63%), 17 lbs 5.5 oz (40%), head circumference 17 cm (28%)
Madeline - 25.75 inches long (42%), 16 lbs 1.5 oz (45%), head circumference 16.5 cm (35%)

Yes, folks, that's a lot of growing!  From 2 months to 6 months, Marlin gained EIGHT POUNDS and grew FOUR AND A HALF INCHES.  Madeline, my petite little Pixie, grew 3.75 inches and gained almost 7 pounds!  YOWZA.  That's a lot of growing.  Speechless.

My babies are growing so fast.  In there 6 month pictures, they were just barely sitting up.  Now, at 2 weeks shy of 8 months (HOW DID THAT HAPPEN???), Marlin is army crawling, Madeline is doing something like a downward dog trying to crawl and we are taking baths in the big bath tub.  I can't even take it.

Six months to Seven months has been a big change for the babes....

You can almost SEE them growing if you look closely enough while they sleep (which isn't through the night yet, in case you were wondering).  Madeline is a better night time sleeper - and she will sleep through the night 5 out of 7.  Marlin is a better napper and will sleep through the night 1 out of about 120.  (Yes, do the math - that means he's only slept through the night twice in his little life...).

Miss Molly Kate is almost 2 and a half.  HOW DID MY BABY GET SO GROWN????  She is such a  little ball of energy and is speaking so well.  She is constantly on the move and is becoming such a sweet "Big Sissy" - even if she is a little rough (read - tries to drag them on the floor by one arm, lays on top of them, etc).  Her 2 year stats:

35.25 inches tall (84%), 27 lbs and 8 oz (65%) and head 18.5 cm (35%).  One day, I'll blog about her 2nd birthday party, but here are some pics from it anyway...

I love my little corner of the universe.  BBB all the way!
