Berry Berry Busy


Our twin girls arrived a little early at 33 weeks and 4 days. They're getting bigger day by day since they blessed us with their arrival. This blog is to document their amazing feats since we know they'll grow up entirely too fast.

15 Month check up

Yes, I know, the girls are 16 ½ months now, but somehow after the 1 year appointment I got it in my head that we didn't need another appointment until 18 months.  When I called to ask the pedi's office to fax the most recent immunization records to the school I found out we were behind – bad Mommom.  Fortunately, we were still in the window to keep up with their immunizations.

I wasn't able to take the time off since I still don't really have any personal time, so Seth took the ladies to see their doctor yesterday.  Since the couldn't go in until 9, I made them all breakfast and packed their bag for school and the doctor, making sure to put treats in for after their shots (Polio and flu vaccine).  The girls seemed to really enjoy their breakfast :-)

Once at the doctor's office, all of their weight and measurements were taken and it's so surprise (at least to us) that the girls have made more progress and are pretty firmly on the growth chart for their actual age.  The doctor also went over all their developmental milestones with Seth and said that they were right on track for their actual age.  No more adjusted age for us!!!!  Woohoo!!  She was so happy to see how well the girls were doing.

Mina (Baby A) Stats:
  • Height – 31" that puts her in the 46 Percentile
  • Weight – 21lbs 1oz  that puts her in the 39 Percentile
  • Head Circumference – 17.91" that puts her in the 38 Percentile
Evie (Baby B) Stats:
  • Height – 30.51"  that puts her in the 29 Percentile
  • Weight -  21lbs 7oz that puts her in the 45 Percentile
  • Head Circumference – 17.91" that puts her in the 38 Percentile
Seth said the girls were very brave for their shots and got over the initial shock/pain of it very quickly. 

And just to update you on Mina's ear infection – it's all cleared up!  Poof!  Gone!  Yippe!  While the news is good, Mina's mood is still a bit off.  According to the doctor we might be in the early stages of the terrible twos .  Seriously!!!  Looks like we've got a long road a head of us!  She gave us some handouts on what to expect with our little toddling ladies. 

Their next wellness check (with bonus hep A vaccination) should be sometime after Christmas.  I'll make sure to be on top of that one :-)

We're officially out of the baby stage now, which is kind of sad.  These girls are so much fun though and Seth and I seriously have the best gig in the world!
