Quick - this is the best picture that we were able to capture with all four kids! Now that three out of four are mobile, we can't get them to sit for the life of us!
Last Friday, we took the babies in for their one year check ups. What a difference a year makes! When you think a year ago they were at 2.10, 2.12 and 3.1 you realize a lot can change in a year!
Here are their latest stats. The percentage behind each number is based upon their actual age, not their adjusted:
Ellery - 19 pounds 4.5 ounces (25%), 28 3/4 inches long (25%)
Gianna - 19 pounds 5.5 ounces (25%), 27 3/4 inches long (10%)
Easton - 18 pounds 4.5 ounces (3%), 27 inches long (3%)
Yay for Easton - he is finally on the charts! I will take 3% :)
They each gained right around 2 1/3 pounds, give or take an ounce, since their 9 month appointments. The doctor was happy with both their weight and length gains. Jason and I were both surprised that Gianna was only an ounce heavier than Ellery. She feels so much heavier, a little more dense I guess. Shhhh - we won't tell her :)
Can you tell who is still sitting? Ms. Gianna! I have some of the cutest pictures of her right now. She is slowly becoming more motivated to crawl, and has been caught rocking on all fours over the past few days.
Easton and Ellery are both loving the fact that they can go, go, go! They have both figured out how to pull themselves up and balance on their knees. They are funny to watch. They will sit in the middle of the room looking around, spot something they want and take off crawling. (Gianna has actually pulled herself up from a sitting position to her knees, just a few times).
