We went last Thursday, 5/5/11, for the twins 4 month baby wellness check up. WOW, they have grown a ton! Ashton is 15lbs 1oz, 24 1/2 inches long. Carly is 13 lbs 13oz, 24 1/2 inches long. They have each gained so much weight since birth that the doctor was so pleased with their growth. They're officially off preemie stuff, yay!!!
The big thing right now is they're drooling, teething machines. They constantly gnaw on anything that reaches their mouths, drool on anything, and you can tell they're uncomfy. Thank goodness for orajel, tylenol, and teethers! Hopefully here soon we'll see the evidence of their labor.
Also, they've started to eat baby food & drink 1oz of apple juice a night. *tear* It makes me super proud, but also very sad at the same time because my babies are growing up (and way too fast might I add!). We started them out on squash last week & here in the next day or so, it's on to peas. Yummy! On the bright side, they do love their apple juice!
My babies are growing up! I can't believe they're almost 5 months old. That means next month it's the half way mark to their FIRST BIRTHDAY. holy cow, I may need a sedative. It's definitely true what they say, don't miss a thing because you blink & your kids are halfway to one.
