Photo Friday

C being the great big brother he is, wanted Grady to sit on his lap and read a book. As you can see, it was not as easy as it sounded! I tried to explain to C that Grady was also a big brother. A little bit more confusing since Gwen is technically bigger!
C took Grady on a rid in the jeep!

Gwen wanted to hold baby Mara all day long!

While singing in the car I turned around and found Grady plugging his ears!

Two Year Check Up

The two year check up was interesting. Grady was ok, until they called us into a room, then he was upset until about 5 minutes before we left. He was crying so loud, I am sure the entire office heard him. Poor little guy. We discussed the twins diet with the doctor. They are not necessarily picky eaters, but they just do not eat a lot of volume. She suggested a few new options we could mix in that were healthy and calorie rich. It is a struggle because I think I could put 5 pounds on Gwen pretty quickly by feeding her chocolate, but that is not really the greatest diet to teach your child. Grady's growth has been a small concern of mine for a while now. At first the doctor said we would do a weight check in 3 months and then proceed, possibly seeing a specialist at age 3. About 3 hours after our appointment the doctor called me at home and said after discussing his case with the other doctors, she would recommend we see an endocrinologist now. He is still on the charts, but given Gwen's growth pattern, she felt it was better to consult a specialist. I have not broke the news to Grady. He is going to be devastated that he will have to go to the doctor again. I already pumped him up before our appointment that if he promised not to get sick he would not have to go back for a year. Here are the stats......

Weight 24 pounds 14 ounces 24%
Height 34" 10% (not 100% accurate since we had to remeasure)

Weight 23 pounds 2 ounces 3%
Height 32.25" 3% (not 100% accurate since we had to remeasure)

Weight 22 pounds 2 ounces 20%
Height 31" 25%
Head - 45.5" 25%

Weight 20 pounds 13 ounces 3%
Height 30.25" 3%
Head - 47" 25%

I do not have many pictures of the kids together since they never sit still, so this is the best I have. We have been enjoying the fact that GG has moved to Columbus and has a pool. Gwen is my little fish. We are working on Grady....
