6 month well baby visit

Our 6 month well-baby visit was on Wednesday, and the girls did great! Catherine is 13 lbs 14 oz and 25 1/2" long. Emily is 13 lbs 4 oz and 24 1/2" long. Still little peanuts, but the doctor said their weight gain is just fine considering how little they started. We got a lot of info on new things to start. Namely we should start giving them pureed meat for iron, since their iron stores are about depleted by 6 months old. We can also start giving them yo baby yogurt, which I'm really excited to give them! I hope they love it! Also, we can start giving them sippies of water with their meals. I tried that this morning and this afternoon and they didn't really care for it. Catherine drank about 1/2 oz, but Emily wanted nothing to do with it. They also had some shots, and they did ok. Catherine had a slight fever this morning but after some baby tylenol and some cuddles, she did just fine!
