6 month appointment and First Cereal!

The babies recently had their 6 month appointment. The doctor is very pleased with how they are doing. Ben came in weighing 15 lbs 12 1/2 oz and 26 1/2 inches long. He has tripled his birth weight and has grown about ten inches!! The princess came in at 14 lbs 1.5 oz and 24 1/2 inches long. They are getting so big I can't believe it.
The doctor said that they are old enough that we could start them on some cereal. We thought that since Hyrum wasn't a big fan of rice cereal that we would start with some baby oatmeal instead. They did not like it at all! They were quite offended! Their faces were priceless. They were constantly trying to get their hands in their mouth instead of the spoon. It was so funny!
This is awful!

You are giving this to me again!
Messy Ben!
I am not so sure about this!
Daddy doing double duty!

All clean again!

I'm just impressed you're still sane to tell about your adventures with twins. They are so cute and it's amazing how different they look from one another. Keep up the good work! :)

Gotta love the faces with cereal for the first time. We mixed a little bit of apple juice in with our cereal and both girls ate it right up. I guess I know where they got their sweet tooth!

That's great! They are getting so big! Is life getting any less crazy? Or is it getting busier? I've always been curious...
