Well, we braved the elements today and headed to the Dr. to get the 15 month check up & shots over with. We figured if we headed out today, maybe we would have a better shot at being less exposed to all those other germy kids waiting to be seen for real illnesses. So we headed out and got seen with little to no exposure to anyone else who was coughing, sneezing, wheezing etc...
All is well and we are still on the same track at usual.
Elliot weighs 18.8 lbs (just below 5%) & is 28 3/4 inches tall (almost 10%). Her head circumference is 50% though! What a noogin! That just means her brain development is right on track! We are just going to be tiny little things (but then again, look at her parents)!
Keaton weighs 19.11lbs (right below 5%) & 29 1/4 inches tall (right below 10%). His head circumference is just below 50% so he is right on track as well. The good news is his ears looked great!
We did find out that the kids are having chronic post-nasal dripage so we are starting on a daily regimen of Zyrtec to see if that will clear up our constant snotty noses and sore throats.
Other than that, the kids are right on track for development and other than being small, you would never know that they were once preemies! And for those of you out there wondering about boys vs. girls, girls develop their verbal skills first and boys develop their motor skills first. This could be why Keaton climbs on EVERYTHING and Elliot stands at the baby gate yelling at me about it! Oh man, life is about to get so much fun!
Shots also went well today and after their 18 month shots we should be done until age 4!!! Momma is happy about that. I can't stand seeing those sweet babies cry that hard. Luckily Ryan was there with me this time today and made things alot easier, soothing one baby while I tended to the other. That is tough to do alone!
We are so blessed to have two healthy, beautiful, thriving kids and I could not be a luckier girl!
Well, got my priorities and LOST is finally coming on! Gotta run!
