6 MONTH DOCTOR APPOINTMENT

The twins had their 6 month well baby check today. The poor little guys got 5 immunizations: 4 shots and 1 liquid. This included the flu shot, since they can receive it now that they are 6 months old. (Bad news is we have to go back in one month to get the second shot for the flu shot.) They did great and didn't seem to have any pain later in the day after the initial tears.

Here's a photo of them with their bloody war wounds covered in thick gauze...or actually cute little colorful band-aids. As you can see, they were discussing who was the bigger wuss and cried more after the shots. HA!

Eli says, "You cried more." Will says, "No, you cried more!"

Eli weighed in at 16 pounds 10 ounces. His length is now 27.5 inches and his head circumference is 17.25 in. That puts him in the 31 percentile for weight, 82 percentile for length, and 46 percentile for head size! He's tall and skinny!

Will weighed in at 16 pounds 15 ounces. His length is now 27 inches and his head circumference is 16.5 in. That puts him in the 36 percentile for weight, 65 percentile for length, and 7 percentile for head size. He's half an inch shorter than Eli, but weighs 5 ounces more! And he's got that tiny little head!
