We have growing girls

The girls had their 2 year well baby visit on Friday. Just another reminder of how fast these girls are growing. I told the girls we would be going to the doctor and Addison seemed pretty excited about going. She kept pointing to the door and saying "doctor". This is really funny since this girl really hates going to the doctor. I think she hates all the sick visits and times when she had to have her heart looked at. Riley doesn't seem to care one way or the other.

The girls seemed pretty happy to look at the fish in the aquarium and play in the front room. They did get a little hesitant once they were called back for the visit. That was short-lived once they saw the big girl scale. Riley even preformed a little dance for the medical assistant as she was waiting her turn.

We learned that Addison our baby A, is our skinny girl but the taller twin right now. She was 23lbs, 12oz and she is now 34.25 inches tall. Riley outweighs her twin by a whole pound now at 24lbs, 12oz and is 33.75 inches tall. Riley was born smaller and weighed less for quite awhile until she reached the same weight as Addie. They kept pretty close for most of that time until recently. You can really tell the difference when you pick the girls up. Addie is much easier to can really tell the extra pound difference. Maybe Addie will be our tall and skinny girl who takes after her dad and Riley will be our athletic strong girl like her mom.

Here are the pictures from their fun with Dr. W.

The girls were very excited to get some tongue depressors to play with and some stickers for being good. The visits are so much easier when there are no vaccinations involved.

We learned that the girls are right on track for development and have grown out of their prematurity. Woohoo girls!!!

Addison is in the 10-25th percentile for weight, 50th percentile for weight and 90th percentile for head circumference

Riley is in the 25th percentile for weight, 50th for weight, and 90th for head circumference.

I am so sad to learn the the girls will not go back for a well visit until they are 3 years old. They have graduated to the once a year recall. This is so strange after taking the girls in for visits so frequently over the last 2 years. I know we will check in at the office here and there with sick visits but hopefully not too often.
