Six Month Appointment… and more shots!

This morning was our first official appointment at our new doctor’s office.  Dr. S was great and Ben and I both really liked her.  She took time to talk to us about the twins birth and history and then she did her exam on each of them.  Josh and Savannah both passed the six month developmental screening and she said she didn’t see any reason for them to see a specialist unless things change.  They are continuing to make adequate growth and everything seems to look good!

We did ask her about Josh’s hearing (we have concerns about him hearing us when he isn’t looking) and she did a brief exam.  She thinks he may hear fine out of his right ear, but have some trouble with his left.  She put a referral through to have him seen by a specialist and we will see what they have to say.

Here are their latest stats:
Joshua: 15 lbs 3 oz which is 8% for weight
He is 26 1/2 inches long (37% for length)

Savannah: 14 lbs 14 oz which is 21% for weight (woohoo!!!)
She is 26 inches long (56% for length)

After their appointment we took them to get their shots (we agreed to 2 of them).  They both cried for the 30 sec they were on the table and then promptly stopped.  We gave them bottles and they fell asleep on the way home! 

**They were awake from 6:30-10:30 which is definitely the longest stretch of “awake” time that they have had so far. 

Here are a few facts about my sweet babies…
