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!
