Pediatrician Visit

Today we went to see Dr. Cope for a weight check. He said everything looked great, and was impressed with their fabulous weight gain.

Here are the numbers:
Elias:
Birth: 5 lbs 5 oz
4 week appt: 6 lbs 2 oz
6 week appt: 6 lbs 12 oz

Elsie:
Birth: 4 lbs 7 oz
4 week appt: 5 lbs 11 oz
6 week appt: 6 lbs 8 oz

We couldn't be happier about how they are progressing. The great check-up today gives me even more peace of mind. Dr. Cope did say he heard a mild heart murmur in Elsie, but wasn't worried. Emily also had a heart murmur that she has already "grown out of" and I still have one. No big deal. Apparently a heart murmur is considered anything that doesn't fall in the typical range of heart beats. I just think Elsie, Emily, and I all have hearts that beat with extra joy! :)

Hope you have a great Wednesday! Both babies are snuggled together and asleep in their cribs. Emily is "helping" Scott move things out of my classroom, and the house is quiet! I am heading off for a nap!

Yeah grow babies grow! i like your take on the heart murmur. Evelyn had one but it has already faded. The Dr. here said that it was because her body was fighting off jaudice, ear infections, and growing, her little body had to work over time.

More pictures please!!!
