4 Month Appointment...Er, A Month Late

The twins had their 4 month appointment today. Yes I know, they are well into their 5th month of life, but it was how they scheduled us. Anyways here are the updates!

Cavan now weighs 16Lbs 9oz (56th%) and is 25.25 inches (31th%). He is progressing so well and she couldn't believe that he could roll so fast!

Kaylie now weighs 17Lbs 4oz (90th%!!) and is also 25.25 inches (58th%). She is also doing very well and was all smiles and giggles for the doctor! What child laughs at the doctor's office?

Well they weren't laughing when they had their shots, that's for sure! Although they didn't scream and cry nearly as much as the last time. They said that thicker thighs help ease the pain. Well it's a good thing for these then!
Sad little band-aid
So it was a good appointment and now we can start them on the "P" fruits (Pears, Peaches, Plums, and Prunes). I predict fun diapers in the near future! Oh, also just an interesting thing my pediatrician recommended for teething. Give them a big, cold, peeled carrot! The can grasp it and it feels good. Since they have no teeth yet, they can't bite any pieces off. But DO NOT use baby carrots (duh)!

She also mentioned to start a self soothing method. Oh boy! This should make for an interesting few nights, but hopefully will pay off in the end. Ok, so I think that's everything for now.  Here are some cutsie faces to end your day!
