2.5 year stats

We took the boys to the pediatrician for their 2.5 year well child visit and here are their newest stats. (Not sure if it matters that we took them a month and a half late. Whoops!

Linus: 30.7 lbs (50th); 36.5″ tall (50-75th)
Oliver: 30.6 lbs (50th); 37″ tall (75th)
Miles: 29.9 lbs (25-50th); 36.6″ tall (50-75th)

So as usual, Linus and Oliver were almost the same, and Miles was our lil’ peanut. Funny how he just maintains that little difference in his weight, even now. At birth, Oliver and Linus were a few grams apart, and Miles was 7 oz lighter, and it seems like he’s still about the same number of ounces now (don’t make me do the math!) which means the gap is shrinking since they weigh about nine times more than they did at birth.

For the record, at their 2 year well visit, their stats were:

Linus: 28.5 lbs (50-75th); 34.1″ tall (25-50th); HC 50.5cm (90th)
Oliver: 28.9 lbs (50-75th); 34.3″ tall (25-50th); HC 50.5cm (90th)
Miles: 27.9 lbs (25-50th); 33.2″ tall (10-25th); HC 50cm (75-90th)

So it looks like they all gained about 2 lbs and 2.5 inches in the last seven months.

(I know…borrrrring! This is more for my own records.) (Since I never made a baby book.) (And let’s face it, I’m pretty sure it ain’t gonna happen now.)

2 year stats

So I took the boys to the ped today for their two year visit, and then I had to take them to the hospital for bloodwork. (All very routine, the ped just likes to have a CBC and lead testing done at two years old.) Oh, did I mention I took them by myself? I am goooood.

2 years old!

Anyhoodles, here are their stats:

Linus: 28.5 lbs (50-75th); 34.1″ tall (25-50th); HC 50.5cm (90th)
Oliver: 28.9 lbs (50-75th); 34.3″ tall (25-50th); HC 50.5cm (90th)
Miles: 27.9 lbs (25-50th); 33.2″ tall (10-25th); HC 50cm (75-90th)

At 18 months, they were:
Linus: 25 lbs, 3 oz (25-50th); 32.75″ long (50th-75th); HC 49cm (75-90th)
Oliver: 25 lbs, 4 oz (25-50th); 33″ long (75th); HC 49cm (75-90th)
Miles: 24 lbs, 5 oz (25th); 32.25″ long (50th); HC 48.5cm (75-90th)

They’ve been doing some growing, that’s good! I don’t think the heights are accurate, they were using a different type of measuring device, and the boys weren’t standing up straight. But close enough. They definitely have big noggins, which I already knew. They got two sets of hats for their birthday, both in size 3T/4T, and both were too small. (At least one set was stretchy, so they’ll work, but GEEZ!)

18 month doctor visit

So the boys had their 18 month visit with the ped today. It went well. They got two shots (MMR and Hep-B) which they didn’t like, but in every other regard, they’re doing great. Stats!

At 15 months, they were:
Linus: 23 lbs, 15 oz (50-75th); 31.5″ long (50th-75th); HC 47cm (50th)
Oliver: 23 lbs, 8 oz (25-50th); 31.25″ long (50-75th); HC 48cm (75th)
Miles: 22 lbs, 3 oz (10-25th); 31″ long (50th); HC 47.5cm (50th)

And now, at 18 months, they are:
Linus: 25 lbs, 3 oz (25-50th); 32.75″ long (50th-75th); HC 49cm (75-90th)
Oliver: 25 lbs, 4 oz (25-50th); 33″ long (75th); HC 49cm (75-90th)
Miles: 24 lbs, 5 oz (25th); 32.25″ long (50th); HC 48.5cm (75-90th)

Getting so big! Gaah!

This weekend was fun. Spent some time in Baton Rouge with my mom and Larry, and then last night I went to the benefit for my friend’s husband. It was incredible. There were about 1800 people there and a ton of silent auction items. I bid on a bunch, but thankfully only won two. :) One was a gift certificate to a restaurant that George loves. They only serve baked potatoes. Ha ha ha! Classy! I was the only bidder on that item. Ha ha! The other item was for a two night stay at a hotel in Dallas, so we’re going to have our girl’s weekend (me, Ren, Kettie, and Mar) there at some point. I can’t wait!

Anyway, the event was just overwhelming. There were some famousish chefs there (including one guy who’s on Top Chef right now) so that was cool. And a ton of good food and drink. I’m just so happy for the family, that they got so much support when they need it. Truly heartwarming.

Now, I need to find some pictures to post here! Hmmm. Maybe tomorrow. Sorry. (If my mom or Larry will send pictures from her new camera, then I can post them, hint hint.)
