While it won't be the most exciting post, I want to make sure that I record this information somewhere (because it IS interesting to me), so that I can fill in their baby books someday...
We had their 15 month checkup and here are the stats:
weight: 20 lbs. 1 oz. - 10th percentile
height: 32 in. - 85th percentile
She's a string bean. Excitement on the visit: when Allie screamed and threw herself around during the...regular checkup (listening to chest, ears, etc.). The girl does not like to be touched! Good new is that she was deemed perfectly healthy and in-line developmentally!
weight: 22lbs. 7 oz. - 19th percentile
height: 30 3/4 in. - 33rd percentile
He's much more evenly proportioned. Although, I'm sure if he knew his sister was taller than he is, he would be upset! Ryan not only sat quietly throughout his entire exam, but he smiled and giggled at the doctor! Oh, my children have such different personalities! Ryan was also deemed healthy and developmentally on target.
The doctor also gave some insight on the dastardly diaper rash. She says it's so persistent because they have sensitive skin! She said it was probably initially a problem of a chemical change because of change of diaper (boo on Pampers!), and then the already sensitive skin was continually irritated by foods or outside irritants. At least I have a little more knowledge to help me fight the war! And while the shots were not their favorite thing, they did enjoy pushing the doctor's rolling stool all around the exam room, and climbing up and down the exam table step!
