One Year Check Up

The girls had their one year checkups on Sept 4th. Everything is right on! Mady was 21.5 lbs and Emma was 18.5 lbs. All their blood work came back good. Emma is in the 10% percentile for weight and the 25th for height and head size. Mady is in the 50% percentile and the 75th for height and weight. (I think I got that right.)

The doctor talked to us about Swine Flu and about RSV. The girls will most likely not be covered for RSV shots this year since they are healthy. The doctor is ordering in swine flu vaccines but will not administer them until she feels 100% secure with the vaccine. She just told us to keep a look out for the signs of both of these.

They were allowed to stop formula and move onto milk! We were all very excited about this, as formula costs us about $100 per week. Emma loved whole milk! BUT, from day one the girls started having loose stools and it only got worse on vacation. So, after a full week of milk we were put back on formula. We can slowly add milk back into their diets as soon as they are clear of any loose stools. We are hoping to add it back in this weekend. I'm not sure why the doctor didn't have us do this slowly from the get-go.

The girls now have tons of teeth! It's crazy. Emma has the cutest gap between her two front teeth. Her top ones show the most and Mady's bottom ones show the most.

The girls had a great time on vacation. We all did. I will update more on that, and hopefully soon. I wanted to at least get their doctors information posted!
