6 Month Checkup

Today we took the twins to see Dr. G for their 6 month appointment. He was so impressed with them developmentally that he jokingly asked if it was their 9 month appointment. :) Austin and Addie have been given the Dr. G seal of approval!

Austin was very curious about the shots he would be receiving today:


The A-Team waiting on Dr. G:



Austin weighed in at 15 lbs 12 oz and he's 25.5 inches long. Austin is in the 25th percentile as far as weight. His head - 50th percentile! That kid has a big noggin to hold all those brains! Dr. G was very impressed with the amount of teeth he has already (he's up to 2 with 3, 4 and 5 poking through)! Austin showed Dr. G how he likes to do pushups and yoga - show off!

Addie weighed in at 12 lbs 10 oz and she's 24 inches long. It concerned me a little that it seems like she hasn't gained nearly as much weight as I thought since her last appointment. Dr. G assured me that she's just pint-sized and that she's probably burning a lot more calories since she's a crawling maniac. Addie didn't display her crawling skills this appointment but when Dr. G held up the light to look in her eyes, she flashed her charming smile. Is that a sign that I might take too many pictures and that girl is way too used to the camera flash?

All in all, he said that they look like a couple of happy babies and to keep up the great work!
