The girls had their month checkup this past Wednesday. I was excited for this appointment because I had some questions for the dr, as well as wanting badly to see how much the girls weigh! They are getting heavy! However, I was not looking forward to the shots they would be getting. Poor things.
Morgan weighed in at 14 lbs. 8 oz and is 25.5" long and is in the 50th percentile.
Taylor's weight was 16lbs. 12 oz and she is 27" long and is in the 90th percentile.
Everyone keeps saying that Morgan will catch up to Taylor, but I don't think so. I think they are going to stay at least 2 lbs apart. And frankly, I don't care if Morgan "catches up". She isn't behind by any means. They are simply 2 different babies! Yes, they are twins, but that doesn't mean that they are going to be similar. I love that they are different, and totally embrace it.
I am starting to think that my doctor is old school. I really like him, but he isn't a fan of many things out there for babies. For example, he doesn't like gas drops, or infant teething gel. He also isn't a supporter of Bumbos. Ummm... ok, we've used all of these things! I definitely take into consideration what he has to say, since he is the one with the medical degree, but if the girls are screaming (and we are almost positive it's teething), I am going to have to use some teething gel. It helps! Is anyone else's pediatrician this way?
