Doctor! Doctor!

We took the twins in for their "two week" check up. Only they're 3.5 weeks old. It was because they were doing so well at their 4 days post hospital visit that they decided we didn't need to bring them in for the actual 2 week visit. So they asked us to push it out farther. So we did.

What did we learn today? That Emma is a monster!


  • Height: 20.5" (25th-50th%)
  • Weight 8 lb 11 oz (~50th%)
  • Head circumference: 14.5" (~50%)
  • Height: 20.5" (10-25%)
  • Weight 8 lb .03 oz (10-25%)
  • Head circumference: 14.5" (~25%)
Many kudos from the RN about the babies - strength, awareness, weights, growth, looks. A balm to my weary soul. It's always nice to have your babies admired by professionals.

Grandparental units do not worry about the difference in their weights! They are just different. A weight gain of 1 oz per day is average; Emma just happens to be way above average while Logan is right on track. Just thought I'd pre-emptively ward off any concerns there.

Now if only they'd sleep more....

Oh and Hello! I have a migraine today and all of my migraine meds are expired, since I haven't had one in a long time. Instead I'm making do with a bunch of Ibuprofen and caffeine pills. Whee!
