Let me preface this post by saying that Moni and I have been a little disappointed. We have given you guys 4 posts now in 4 days and the comments were kind of low. We understand that some of you are all too shy to type or something, but seriously.
The kids had their 3-month doctor appointment this afternoon, and they all passed with flying colors. We are still amazed and so thankful that God has trusted us with these miracles, and they continue to chug right along. They are all still incredibly healthy and they are growing so well.
Pius is still our biggest guy. He now tips the scales at 11 pounds, 6 ounces. He has jumped from the 3rd percentile last month to the 10th percentile this month. He still doesn't quite rank on the length growth chart at 22 1/4 inches, but his head does by golly. He is still having some problems with his feet, but the doctor thinks they will straighten out on their own with a little TLC from mommy, daddy, and caregivers.
Forrest is still keeping up with Pius pretty well, but he only weighs 11 pounds, 3 ounces. He also is in the 10th percentile for his weight, but not quite on the chart for his length which is 21 3/4 inches. Now Pius's head is in the 4th percentile, but Forrest, on the other hand, ranks in the 12th percentile. What a gigantic melon that boy has. He must have Mommy's brains in there. We will have to be more aggressive with Forrest's fingernail clipping because he continues to scratch his face, but other than that no real big issues with Frosty.
This brings us to our princess, Danna. She now tips the scales at 6 pounds, 3 ounces. She is 17 3/4 inches long now, too. Neither of those measurements got her on the chart, but she did narrow the gap a little bit. For now she has to stay at 24 calorie meals, but the doctor said that after her weight checkup in a couple weeks we might be able to cut her down to 22 calories. She is a very healthy, petite little girl.
Last, but not least, we have Laine. He now weighs a whopping 8 pounds, 6 ounces. He is 20 inches long, but neither of those measurements earned him the growth chart yet. He is very close though. We will be dropping him from 24-cal to 22-cal feeds. Hopefully this will help the upset stomachs that have seemed to be plaguing him. He is still a sweet, healthy baby boy.
Moni has officially started back to work tonight. I was stayed here with the help of Aunt Renee, Ashley, and Bucko. Now let me say that Moni was the one who was talking about Renee ruling with an iron fist. I sat here and witnessed Renee as the only one of us four tonight who could calm the Banana. Aunt Renee never actually did anything to us kids, it was just our imaginations working with the knowledge of her stare. She has one hell of a stare, and we were all too scared to figure out what she was capable of. I will BEG Aunt Renee to teach me the secret, and would like to state for the record that her stare gives me hope that maybe one day I will be able to handle my children with only a look. Moni and I really do appreciate her help, and she and Uncle Jim have already decided that they need to spoil our kids rotten.
That pretty much raps up the 4th post in 4 days. We look forward to a little better effort on the feedback. When we feel you deserve it, we will post new pictures and new videos of each of the four. That, and when I find out where the camera is. It's probably under bottles, diapers, dirty clothes, blankets, or a boppy somewhere.
