I'm playing along with Jennifer for Mommy Confession Monday, and since we had the girls' six-month checkup today, my confessions are doctor-themed.
Today, I must confess that:
1) I actually look forward to well-baby checkups. I like to see how much the girls have grown, and I like talking about new issues and development with the doctor. Our nurse also has twins (now grown), so it's always fun to see her too!
2) This is the crazy one, but I sort of don't mind shots too much. No, it's not fun, but shots are a necessary evil (for my family anyway). I don't particularly enjoy the fussiness, but I do like having an excuse to hold and cuddle my babies all evening. We always try to make our appointments on Mondays so Jeremy is off. We have pretty much developed a routine for doctor days: we pick up lunch on the way home from the doctor, then come home and pick a baby to snuggle for the rest of the afternoon. With twins, snuggle time with one baby at a time is hard to come by, so we take it when we can get it! : )
As for the 6-month checkup, it went well. We were surprised to see that little Miss Addison is currently 2 ounces up on her sister...the first time that has happened since birth! Mackenzie weighed 15 lbs., 3 oz., and Addison weighed 15 lbs., 5 oz. Mackenzie is 24 1/2 inches, and Addison is 24 3/4 inches. Such big girls!
Everything else looks good, and we were encouraged to keep adding more foods and up the solid intake a little. He mentioned meats, which I have not done yet. I am still making all their food, but meat scares me a little. If anyone has any tips, they are certainly welcome!
