Trip to the Pediatrician

Both girls on the pediatrician table

Riley sleeping and Addison wide awake

Both girls went to the pediatrician this week. Riley went on Tuesday and she had gained 2 ounces since being released from the hospital, putting her at 5 pounds 9 ounces. Her length was 19 inches, up 2 inches from birthEverything checked out fine on her and she is growing very well for being a preemie. She was put on vitamin drops with Iron to ensure she is growing up big and strong. She was such a stinker and peed on me after I picked her up from scale. Rookie mommy mistake, I didn't put her diaper on right away and she gave me a lesson to learn. :)

We took both girls back to the pediatrician the day after Addison was released. Riley needed another weight check. Riley gained another 4 ounces putting her at 5 pounds 13 ounces and she grew another 1/4 of an inch. Addison was released from the NICU at 6 pounds 1 ounces and she weighed 6 pounds 2 ounces the next day so she is growing right on schedule also. The doctor is very pleased with their progress and he wants us to come back in 2 weeks for another weight check and then 2 weeks after that for their 2 month appointment.
