Neurology Appointment

The twins had their follow up with the Neurologist today. The doctor says that they are developmentally perfect for their true age (not corrected age), which it totally awesome!!!! They also got their height and weight taken, so here are the new numbers.

Chana

weight: 17lbs 14oz (last month 16lb 10.9oz...a gain of 1lb 3.1oz)
height: 27 in (last month 26 in...a gain of 1 in)

In percentiles for her age, this means...

weight: 68%ile (last month 57%ile)
height: 71%ile (last month 50%ile)

Dovid

weight: 16lbs 5oz (last month 15lbs 1.9oz...a gain of 1lb 3.1oz)
height: 26.5 in (last month 25.5 in...a gain of 1 in)

In percentiles for his age, this means...

weight: 13%ile (last month 11%ile)
height: 29%ile (last month 19%ile)

Yay twinners!!! They both gained the exact same amount of height and weight. How awesome is that? And they are zooming up in percentiles. Can you believe that MY daughter is in the 71st percentile for height??? And she was a preemie!! Good golly... And Dovid is catching up, too...29th percentile for height! I'm just so proud of their development. :-)

sounds great. thanks for visiting. I had a couple preemies, and aside from one being really tiny for her age, they are perfect now.
