Check Ups

I set up several dr. visits during spring break - trying to save the few sick days that I have left.
Yesterday morning I took Quin for her 3 Year check up. She is doing very well, and the doctor was impressed with her verbal skills - ha! I was surprised by her stats. She has always been very low on the percentile for height, and very high for weight. I feel like in the last few months she has sprouted (her pants are turning into capris - thank goodness it is spring), and that she has grown into a skinnie minnie. But... she is 25% for height (36 3/4 inches) and right around 80% for weight (33 pounds). Just cracks me up!

In the afternoon, we took the triplets for their second developmental appointment at the Gerber Center. When the babies left DeVos, they were automatically enrolled for developmental follow-ups. Gerber continues to check them against their 'adjusted' age. Their original due date was April 9, so the doctors look at them as if they are 12 months old. The doctors were very impressed with how well they have developed, and are meeting their adjusted milestones - and even some of their actual age milestones. They have one more appointment next November, and then they should be dismissed - yay!

Their new weights/lenghts are:
Ellery - 20 pounds 5 ounces, 29 1/2 inches long
Gianna - 21 pounds, 29 1/8 inches long
Easton - 19 pounds 1 ounce, 28 inches long

Wow, they are getting so big! You must be so proud of how they are growing. We have our appointment at the Gerber center next month. Quin looks gorgeous in her pictures!
