Today we made a trip to the pediatrician for our two week weight and height recheck. All three of the babies are growing well! Easton is now lagging behind, weighing much less than the girls. According to the doctor he is still meeting expectations, and the doctor isn’t worried – must be that whimpy white boy thing again :) He continues to have to work much harder during feedings, which burns more calories. Hopefully as his feeding difficulties mature, his weight will bump right up. It still amazes me that all three have doubled their birth weight. All three are doing so well that the doctor doesn’t need to see them until their four month check-up. That is six weeks from now! Here are their current height and weight.
Ellery – 19 inches long (increase of 3/4 inch), 6 pounds 8.5 ounces (up 1 pound 5.5 oz)
Gianna – 18 ½ inches long (same), 6 pounds 9.5 ounces (up 1 pound 2.5 oz)
Easton – 18 ¼ inches long (same), 6 pounds 3 ounces (up 14.5 oz)
