9 months plus!

Sorry, no pictures today, but just a little update from our 9 month doctor's checkup on Monday.  The girls have now been out in the big world longer than they were in the womb!  They're growing incredibly concordantly and the doctor thought they looked just great.  They are a little small and have dropped a few curves on the weight growth chart, but apparently this is normal for breast-fed babies.  Anyway, we are working hard at adding plenty of butter and oil to their yummy solid foods and hopefully we'll get these lean little athletes a little chubbier pretty soon!  Annabelle caught up to Katherine and is now 1/4 inch taller and 1 oz. heavier.  Katherine weighs 16 lbs, 1 oz, and Annabelle is 16 lbs, 2 oz.  Katherine is 27 inches tall and Annabelle is 27 and a 1/4 inches.  We're branching out with solids a lot lately, and the girls eat really well.  For example, yesterday they had roasted red pepper and goat cheese puree!  They're liking most everything so far, which is great.  Just gotta keep these little lean girls growing!


  1. No pictures? :( We enjoy them so much.... ;)

    Interesting that they are measuring small, I was just thinking, in the most recent pictures that they look pretty big to me, but I guess my viewpoint is a bit skewed.

    Amelie and Isabelle got weighed today, 6lbs/11oz for Amelie and 7lbs/3oz for Isabelle, which seems huge to us after a post birth low of ~3lbs/10oz.

  2. Haha, I know- sorry about no pics this time Jeff! Figured a word update was better than nothing. We're all going back and forth battling colds lately, so all 4 of us are kind of running on empty.

    Kirsten corrected me on the girls measurements- they've only fallen back on growth curves for their weights- not their height. So, they're plenty tall; we just need to get more meat on their bones!

    That's awesome that Amelie and Isabelle are growing so well and getting bigger and stronger every day! Hope you guys have a very joyous Thanksgiving with your new family!
