Yesterday Charlie and Lily had their 18 month well visit with the pediatrician and we are incredibly happy with their stats! All of these percentiles are for their actual, not adjusted, age.
Weight: 23lbs 3 oz (16th percentile)
Height: 30 1/2" (8th percentile)
Weight: 23lbs 14oz (44th percentile)
Height: 31" (31st percentile)
We are so, so proud of them both. To think that just 18 short months ago they were weighing in at 1lb 13oz and 1lb 8 oz and today they are right where they should be.
The rest of the appointment went well. The pediatrician said he would like to see Charlie have a few more words (right now he says about 3). We have another NICU follow-up in April so I plan to wait until we see the speech therapist there to see what she says before I look into any kind of intervention. I have a feeling he'll catch up soon.
We took a few good pictures today of Charlie and Lily being goofy. This was before their nap and they had been totally cranky, but all of a sudden they got this second wind and started being so silly.
These pants don't fit Lily anymore, but apparently they are really fun to play with.
