Here they are watching their 15 minutes of baby einstein...... they love that DVD. They get bored quick but for that 15 minutes it's like magic..... I never thought I would let my kids watch TV but with 2 sometimes that 15 minute break is GOLDEN.......... I mean a girls got to pee every once in a while. Right?
I love this picture of Edie "swimming"...........
E and E had their 4 month check up today. 4 months. It was 1 year ago Wednesday that they were thawed (after being frozen for 1 year) and we had the FET (frozen embryo transfer for all you non IVFers). So around today or so this time last year they were implanting and now here they are 4 MONTHS OLD!!! The entire infertility rollercoaster seems so long ago -- but when we were in the midst of it it seemed to drag on forever. It felt hopeless. And now we are 2 of the luckiest people alive. They are awesome!!!
Their pediatrician called Ella robust. ELLA !!! She weighed well under 5 pounds just 4 months ago. They both were a little cranky at the appointment -- it seemed like (though I am sure they didn't) they remembered the torture that took place there at the last appointment. My good friend Lauren (we went to nursing school together) came with me. THANK GOODNESS!!! Jon was asleep because he had to work tonight. It would have been a nightmare handling 2 crank pots by myself. She held them while they got their shots too. That is the most awful thing. I can't help but sob myself -- I am useless. I mean I give shots for a living almost but it's different when they are messin with my sweet babies.
So here are the stats:
WARNING -- you are not going to believe your eyes but I assure you - you are reading these numbers correctly............
HC 40.5 cm
length 24.75 in
weight ............................................. 14 pounds 6 ounces!!! Can I get a C.H.U.N.K.Y. M.O.N.K.E.Y.
HC 41 cm (she gets that big head from me)
length 22.5 in
weight...............................................12 pounds 1 ounce!!! Short and sweet I like to call her. She is 2 pounds less than Edie but she is also 2 inches shorter. Her thighs are fat fat fat!!!
Edie is in the 75th percentile all the way around and Ella is just hitting the bottom of her chart at about 3 %. Her head circumference is in the 75th though -- so can't we take an average or something so she doesn't feel behind?
