The twins had their one-year-old well-child appointments this morning. They are getting to be such big kids. Riley is 22 pounds, 4 ounces and Maddie is 21 pounds, 11 ounces, 50th percentile for both. I didn't catch their height, but they are pretty much exactly the same, which puts Riley in the 50th percentile and Maddie in the 75th. They got their daddy's big head: 90th percentile for both.
They both had to get blood drawn for lead screening. No surprise that neither of them was very happy about that. They also got screened for anemia, and we got those results right then and there. No anemia for these kids! Their hemoglobin counts were on the high end of normal, which was good news. I have yet to feed them meat, and I switched them to whole milk from breastmilk/formula, so I was slightly concerned about their iron level. Take that off my list of things to fret about.
Yesterday my dad turned the twins' carseats around so that they face forward. They look so grown-up back there. It's adorable.
I'm so proud of Maddie and Riley. They were rock stars at their birthday party (more on that to come once I recover from the craziness). They get more independent every day. They are hitting all their developmental milestones right on target or ahead of schedule.
They aren't babies anymore. I can't believe it.
