For those of you that don’t remember (or I haven’t told you), here are some general updates on the kids;
1. They’ve been sleeping through the night (9-10pm to 6-7am) since 4 months of age (actual).
2. As of today they are 6.5 months old (actual) and 4.5 months old (adjusted).
3. We use their adjusted age for major milestones (development, feeding, giving milk) until they are one year old (adjusted, February 16, 2011, they were REALLY born December 11, 2009).
4. Both can roll over (front to back and back to front). Artemis has recently gotten up on all fours.
5. Both talk alot, love to smile and “interact” with each other (talk, smile, touch).
6. They are really happy babies and hardly ever fuss (they were bad with the “witching hour” for the first few months that we had them home).
7. They’ve been home almost 5 months (Max came home on January 23 and Artemis on February 5).
8. They are on exclusive breast milk, take 5-6 bottles a day and eat seven (Max) and five (Artemis) ounces per bottle.
9. Max weighs 16 lbs and Artemis weighs 12 lbs.

Even won a blue ribbon at the county fair for a sweater I knit. So don't doubt your ability. It's only knit and purl, just diff combos of those two stitches. Branch out and try something else. You'll be surprised to find you really
