The twins had their 1 year check in with the Dr. today and they are doing great! Their pediatrician was impressed with their walking skills and their chatty conversational abilities. The end of the appointment, with the vaccinations, was the no fun part as usual. Today they received a poke for each leg plus a bonus one in the arm. Ouch. Jackson screamed briefly then calmed right down, Genevieve screamed with huge tears and then glared at the poor nurse. :-)
The newest stats!
21 lbs even (50th%)
46.4 cm head (80%)
29 5/8 in (75%)
21 lbs 3 oz (20%)
47 cm head (75%)
30 1/4 in (60%)
No huge surprise - Jackson maintains his slight lead, by 3 oz! Just an ounce off of the difference they had at birth. That's impressive (although slightly odd)! Jackson has pulled back ahead in the height department - & by more than just 1/8 inch! Given the haphazard way in which child height measurements are taken, however, I don't put TOO much stock into them. Genevieve gets the distinction of saying she quadrupled her birth weight by age 1 - exactly quadrupled it, actually! 5 lbs 4 oz to 21 lbs. Jackson started out 4 oz larger so he can't claim this impressive trivia fact though.
When we compare the twins to Bentley in the weight department - well, it's a bit depressing (for Bentley & I, that is!). At Bentley's 2 yr appt he weighed 21 lbs 6 oz - just 3 oz more than Jackson at 1 year. YIKES!
That's it for now. I'm off to offer the Bentley child more food!
