Six-Month Appointment

Today the girls saw Dr. B for their 6-month well child check. More shots (5 each!), more yucky “rotavirus juice”, and all during naptime! The doctor was very impresed with their motor and social skills again, and they’ll be back in January for part 2 of their flu shot. In the meantime, he referred Elise to an orthopedist (partly at my request) because of the way her feet rotate, especially her right. It’s too hard to explain here, so maybe we’ll get a picture at some point. Mostly, we just want to rule any growth issues out and make sure it gets straightened out (literally and figuratively) before she tries to start cruising, then walking. I’ll keep you posted.

The stats —

Elise
Head Circumference: 16.5 inches (26th %ile)
Length: 25 inches (16th %ile)
Weight: 14 pounds, 7 ounces (13th %ile)

Avery
Head Circumference: 16.5 inches (26th %ile)
Length: 25 inches (16th %ile)
Weight: 13 pounds, 10 ounces (5th %ile)

…. she’s closing the gap! 🙂

After the appointment, we went to a Gymboree music class! Check out the previous post for pictures, and check back later for monthly “birthday” pictures!
