6 month checkup!

Sarah and Sam did great at their 6 month check up.

First and most importantly both twins have grown a LOT in the past 2 months.

Here are the stats:
Sarah is 26 inches long, head circum is 17 and weight is 15.
She is in the 30% for weight, 40% for height & 75% for head

Sam is26 inches tall, head circum is 17 and weight is 16lbs
She is in the 50% for weight, 40% for height and 75% for head.

It's amazing how much they've grown in 2 months. The dr. had to remeasure just to check her assistant to make sure the measurements were right. They were right plus or minus a tiny bit. She said they are right on track and growing just as they should. She was surprised that they could switch hands with toys...they've been doing that for about 2 weeks. They are also turning from their belly to their back...totally weird and opposite from what Hannah did...but in a good way. Melodys' babies are also doing the same so i was never concerned. I just don't remember Hannah every doing it.

Well the girls are finally resting after a long day at the dr. Hannah used to just sleep and sleep after we got back from the dr...not so for the twins. They were up and playing and wanting to eat when we got home....perhaps b/c i skipped their breakfast cereal this morning to get them ready in time.

When they got their shots Sam screamed for a bit...Sarah on the other hand yelped for a sec of two and was ok. She's totally like Hannah. Hannah did the exact same thing when she was a baby and had to get shots.

On another note...i can't believe Hannah's bday is so close. This year we're going to skip the Big party ruckus and just have family and a couple of kids over. I think Hannah will have more fun with just a couple of people over and i don't want the girls to freak out with a ton of people over at out house anyway. This year the theme of her party is teletubbies...she absolutely LOVES the guys. We watch them every morning on PBS at 630a.

Think that's it for now...Happy 4th to everyone!
