9 Months Old!

Finally, they've been alive longer than I was pregnant! If pregnancy was the longest 9 months of my life (ok, mine was 8, but who's counting?) then the last 9 months have been the fastest!  Yesterday we took the boys to their well-baby appointment for the big weigh-in.  The results?

Ever the clown, Nathan won't lie still on the scale.  He's a big, healthy 18 lbs, 10 oz and has stretched 3 inches in 3 months to 27 1/2 inches!

So serious!  Matthew lies still to make sure the weight is done correctly because he wants to be sure he's the "big" brother again.  And he is at 18 lbs, 11oz!  He's the "shortie" this month, though, at just 27 inches.  
Both boys received passing grades - they're hanging in there at the 20th percentile for weight, which is excellent because they started below the 5th percentile at birth!  Way to go, fellas!

We received all kinds of paperwork at the appointment, so I was reading it last night.  One suggestion was to give baby a spoon to play with during feeding.  Genius!  Maybe that will keep them from swinging at the spoon while I feed them!  

Lesson One: This Is A Spoon

Tomorrow, Lesson Two: This Is The Business End
