2 Month Check-Up

Yesterday the twins had their two month doctor's appointment. I knew they would be getting their shots so I tried to mentally prepare myself not to cry. I was feeling pretty good about it until the nurse stuck them and they turned bright red and had that horrible silent cry where they are so mad that no noise comes out for about 5 seconds. Kyle held Mattie Rose's arms down and I somehow ended up doing the same for James. Not something I wanted to do...

Dr. Hanson said they look great and that Mom and Dad were doing a great job (so nice to hear when as a new mom you often second-guess every decision). P.S. If anyone is looking for a pediatrician in Memphis, Dr. Hanson at Laurelwood Pediatrics is fantastic! The whole group is fantastic! They are incredibly smart, reassuring, easy to access, and absolutely love on all the kiddos!

And now for the stats:

WEIGHT
       James: 10 pounds 5 ounces, 20th percentile
       Mattie Rose: 8 pounds 14 ounces, 8th percentile

LENGTH
      James: 21.75 inches, 26th percentile
      Mattie Rose: 21.25 inches, 23rd percentile

HEAD CIRCUMFERENCE:
      James: 37.5 centimeters, 19th percentile
      Mattie Rose: 37 centimeters, 27th percentile

So they are still small but growing nicely considering how early they were and how small at birth! Proud mama!

James is now wearing size 1 diapers and Mattie Rose is still in newborn. James' newborn size onesies are a little too snug now, but his 0-3 months clothes still swallow him a little. Mattie Rose is still fitting comfortably in her newborn sizes and a few of her 0-3 month clothes. I hope she hurries up and grows a little because we have lots of cute summer dresses that I would hate to go to waste :) 

We go back to the doctor in two months to get the second round of the same immunizations. Hopefully I will leave my tears at home....
