9 month checkup

Good morning everyone,

The boys had their 9 month check up yesterday and it went well. Thomas weighed in at 22 pounds 14 ounces and is 29.5 inches long (up from 19 pounds 9 ounces and 27.5 inches at his 6 month visit). Matthew weighed in at 19 pounds 3 ounces and 27.5 inches (up from 16 pounds 14 ounces and 26 inches at his 6 month visit). Matthew still has a little fluid behind one ear (but he also has a bad cough) so the Dr. wants to see him again in a month to check it again. He also has a drooping eyelid, but it is not covering the pupil so it is not interfering with his vision and the Dr. says it is only cosmetic. Thomas is doing well, his ears are clear and the Dr. is satisfied with his improvement with the neck issue so he does not need any more therapy at this point. They both got their shots yesterday and did great with that. While there, Reed found out that Maine has a program that for every child's well care visits (for each well care visit) they get a book. So both Thomas and Matthew each received a book from the Dr. yesterday. I think that that is a great program. The Dr. was quite surprised by Matthew's ability level (with the crawling, climbing and almost walking activities). She was very satisfied with their development, which of course makes us feel good.

Hopefully I can get some good pictures this weekend and have more to post on Monday. Have a great weekend.

Reed, Sue, Matthew and Thomas

They are doing gret as I can see. The program of getting a book is wonderful. I wish they had is here in NC. Matthew seems that he will bewalking very soon watch out!!!!
Thomas will be right behind him on the move also. The best part is that you have to child proof your house and they find things that you woul never thought they woul think about. I can't wait some more pic's of my little men!
