15 Month Update

So last week we went to the pedi and had the twins 15 month well baby check-ups.  I have NEVER taken both of them to the doctor's office by myself but due to scheduling I had to.  So I thought in my head what is the best way to get them in and out, keep them occupied waiting for the doctor and so on.  I brought their stroller in so I could lay them in it at the end for their shots (all 4 of them) and get the heck out of there as soon as possible.

They both are developmentally above their actually age which is great since they were preemies.  The doctor was very pleased with their skills.  The whole time we were there they were looking at the books and pointing the the objects in the books, one book happened to be a cars book which is Landon's favorite thing right now and he kept pointing and saying "car, car" and I would ask him what cars do and he would say "vrooom", the nurse was very impressed with that.  Makes me a happy and proud mama.  Ava kept pointing to all the books and says boo (book) boo (book) over and over. 

It definitely was hard trying to entertain them while they couldn't walk around since they were barefoot and well ewww.

They took all 4 shots like champs, cried for a bit but were calm as soon as I handed them a cracker.  Shots luckily dont seem to affect them too badly, they were a little cranky that night and then woke up the next morning like nothing had happened to them.  I hate watching them get shots though, I really think it's harder on a mommy sometimes then the child.

But here are their 15 month stats:
22.4 lbs
31 inches
26.8 lbs
31.5 inches

I'm not entirely convinced of their heights since Landon to me looks like he is at least an inch taller then Ava so I think I may measure them myself. 

I am so happy that they are growing and gaining weight just like they should be and don't have any long lasting effects of being born prematurely as we can tell right now.

Landon also got his 1st haircut last Friday (pictures coming) it was a sad day, but he looks so adorable with his new little boy cut but it definitely took every last bit of baby from him. 

Hope you all had a great weekend and are having a great week.

Adorable :) I'm glad to hear that they do so well with the shots! My little guys see the needle coming and look at me with huge eyes and all I can do is just hug them. The crying doesn't last too long, but it breaks my heart every time!

Sounds like they're both doing good. You must be very proud.

I'm with you on the height thing. I usually find the numbers hard to believe because my taller baby is always measured as shorter. Oh well...
