18 Month Check-Up

We had our18 month check-up yesterday afternoon.  Ok, first.  I can't believe they are 18 months old!  Seriously?!  How did that happen?  

Boring stuff now.  L is 31 inches long and weighs in at 22 pounds.  A is 30 3/4 inches long and weighs in at 20.8 pounds.  I am not so sure about A's weight.  They eat like pigs!  That means she only gained 3.5 ounces in the last 3 months.  This child has drank 3 glasses of milk in the last 4.5 hours and eaten lunch, samples around Costco and a snack.  I think I will re-weigh her on our scale at home.  However, they are both staying right on their curves, so nothing to worry about.

A did have to have some extra blood drawn yesterday.  We are testing to see if she is allergic to strawberries (thanks Bompy!), green beans and peas.  She has had reactions to all three, but not 100% sure if they are allergy driven.

On a side note, I can't wait for the girls to be old enough to explain to them what 9/11 is and why it is so important.  I also want them to know how it impacted all our lives.  The day may be gone, but it will never be forgotten.  So many people lost their lives that morning.  I am forever grateful to the fireman and soldiers who have and continue to make a difference.  If you see a soldier today, or any other day, stop to give them thanks.
