Together they weigh 33 lbs 3 oz. (Are we there yet, Misty?)
Emma says, "Lady, you make dis baby?" Yes, that's Otter standing next to Emma. They're back!
The funny thing about raising twins is always having another baby of the same age around to compare with constantly. Is Logan small (Logan says he's not "too small", he's "easily portable!")? Is Emma big (Hah! Not hardly! Caitlin was a Chunk-a-lunka at this same age.)? I don't actually worry about Logan or Emma's weight and height stats until after the doctor's appointment. When you see those percentiles getting smaller you have to start to wonder just what's going on, especially when surrounded by friends whose children are all in the 95th to 100th percentile rankings. Shouldn't all that height be rubbing off on my kids?
Then again, I did mention that if you want to be my friend you must be at least 5'9" to ride, didn't I?
Perhaps I just have to accept the fact that Eric and I just make smaller babies and be done with it. It's not as if Caitlin is looming over her peers.
Maybe I'm just not convinced that it is me who is short, but y'all who are tall. Well, except for Heather. She gets special dispensation for being shorter than me. I blame it on the introductory chai.* She swept me off my feet! She's really cute! Um...someone had to finally be shorter than me?
Yeah, maybe that last one.
You know you're a worry wart when you have to check in with your pediatrician to find out if you should be worried and then when they say all professional-like "No.", you worry anyway.
I blame it on Logan's tendency to be easily distracted when nursing (The weight gain - or lack thereof - not the worry wart thing.). If we're not in a quiet room, he'd rather be crawling around and getting into things than nursing. Emma is quite happy to take her share and half of his, which explains which explains why she's a whopping three ounces heavier than he is. The issue seems to be that even though they're still nursing and eating solid food, all of the crawling, their weight gain has started to taper a bit, which is expected once babies get mobile. Yet here I am, looking at numbers and percentiles and feeling a wee bit worried. However, when I look at my children, they look just fine.
Maybe I'll just stick with that.
* This won't make any sense unless you're Heather, so never you mind!
