Nine Month Check-Up

Today, Andrew & Wesley had their nine month wellness visit with Dr. M.  Wesley is 18 & 1/2 pounds and Andrew is 17 & 1/2 lbs.  The boys were both in dire need of a nap, so they went from being insanely crazy, crawling at speeds of mock five, to being insanely crabby and squirmy.    This was my fault.  What mom schedules her childrens' appointments during nap time? No Mother-of-the-Year runner-up for me, either.

Here is Wes on the scale.  And no, that 16 year old in the blue is not Dr. M.... Just a helper. 

Wes is getting his noggin measured.   He's got a head circumference that should get him into Harvard!

Wesley was not into the exam portion of the visit.  He refused to sit still for Dr. M.  Look at those chicklets in his mouth!

Here's Andrew letting Dr. M peek in his ears... Patiently waiting for his reward...

...a tongue depressor!  It's amazing what this kid will do for a flat chewable stick!

Here's my favorite part of the visit. The nurses are always SOOO generous with the formula samples they give us...  Apparently, "breast is best"(except in my situation), so they don't hand it out too often.   They always hook us up with a good supply, and I'm lucky that the boys can tolerate pretty much anything they've given us.  And it looks like we are upping the calorie count again, as Andrew is still small for his age - just barely making it onto the charts (again).
Oh wait, there was another favorite part to the visit.  NO SHOTS!!  I'm sure Andrew and Wesley were happy about that!  Back again in September for their 1 year visit!  I can't believe it's less than 3 months away!


  1. Just checking in on you guys! I love that you are so diligent about keeping up with the blog... you know how good I am at that : ) The boys are adorable and by the way I LOVE LOVE your hair these days!

  2. Thanks Chicken! xoxo! Give that beautiful little baby hugs from me!


Show me some love! (That means leave a comment, if you please!)
