First....let me say that Thomas and Madelynn are the best babies in the world! They did so good at their appointment today. It was warm in the office and we were a bit fussy...but all in all it was great. Dr. Jester was extremely pleased with their health and specs. They are opposite in terms of what the gender norm is for developement. Maddy is a lot more physical and Thomas is a lot more verbal. We are to work with Thomas more on his leg and neck strength and Maddy more with her verbal skills. That said, Dr. Jester said they were both right on track. She even thinks Maddy will be sitting independently by the next appt. Well....here are the specifics:
Thomas- 13 lbs even. 25th percentile and 23 3/4 inches 25th percentile
Maddy- 12 lbs 9 ounces 25th percentile and 23 1/4 inches 25th percentile
We also got the go ahead to start trying cereal. I think we will play with it this weekend. They have really shown no sign of needing more food....however they do watch us closely as we eat and do seem interested. I look forward to the pictures that come from that! Next appt is the 6 month well baby check up and shots.....April 15th.
