Check Up

Yesterday we packed up all 3 boys and took them to the new doctor. Andrew and Isaac both needed their yearly check-up and William was due for his 2 week visit. All was fairly uneventful except Isaac refused to let the doctor look in his ears for some inexplicable reason. We did all the necessary checks and measurements and found that these boys are growing like weeds.

Andrew is a tall thin weed at 45 inches and 41 pounds. He's about average for his age in weight but is at about the 90th percentile for height. We call Andrew the future basketball player.

Isaac is a proportional weed that is simply big for his age. He is 40 inches and 38 pounds. He is above the 95th percentile for weight and almost off the chart for height. So basically he looks like the average 4 year old and he's not 3 until the end of this month. We call Isaac the future football player.

William, the newly spouted weed is already showing his potential since he is now already 8.6 pounds and 20.4 inches tall. He has gained almost a pound and an inch over his birth measurements. The interesting thing is that when he left the hospital he was 6 lbs 12 oz and they were a little worried about his weight loss. That was just the last two weeks. I think he is in a growth spurt right now as he is voraciously hungry about every 2 hours. He is a promising little weed for sure. We're not sure what to call him, except "little guy" since he was born the smallest of the three.

ps. Don't mistake comparing my kids to weeds to mean anything more than their growth. I certainly don't view them as unwanted and homely. I definitely think they are the cutest and most lovable little boys.

Will already looks so much older! I can't wait to hold him!

That's funny because that picture was taken while mom was still here. It is a good picture though.
