Thursday we had a doctors appt. Rachel has gone from 3.5 lbs at birth to a pawltry even 13 at 9 months. I was really worried she was going to be "failure to thrive" but she is okay. The doctor assured me that even though she is NOT on the growth charts she has a healthy growth curve that is all her own. She thinks b/c I am small Rachel will be small. It isn't my doing anything wrong, it is just tiny genetics.
Cally is doing great at 17 lbs. He is around the 50th percentile and if you adjust his age he is actually in the 75th percentile for length and height on the growth chart. Of course Chris is worried this means he is going to be shorter than Harm who was in the 95th percentile for height (his 2yr appt predicts him at 6'2 to 6'4). My husband is 5'11 and is pretty sensitive about the height thing being the smallest of his brothers. So we will have to see at Cally's 2 yr appt! The only bad news is that Callum is getting further screened for hearing loss... hopefully it is still just bad machines.
I love that they are so healthy and happy. I am still confident this hearing screening will be okay in the long run. When we think of how they were 9 mos ago these little ones are miracles :)
