9 Month Check-up!

Eventhough the babies are 10 months old (can you believe they are that old already?) I thought I would post about their 9 month check-up. They came in weighing:

Ben: 18lbs 11 oz and 27 1/2 inches long

Emily: 16 lbs 5 oz and 25 1/2 inches long.

(I don't know why, but all my really cute pictures of her turn out blurry)

Ben still weighs more then Emily by about 2 lbs. They are still on the very small side for their age, which is what we expected them to be until they are around two years old. Emily is in the 9th percentile for weight and 3rd percentile for length. Ben is in the 18th percentile for weight and the 15th percentile for height.

The doctor said that he is pleased with how healthy and strong they are. He is a little worried about how far they are behind developmentally, but they have made much progress since we moved to Tennesse. May be there is something in the water? We are going to get them set-up with an occupational thereapist here to make sure we are doing everything we can to help them develop the way they should.

Both of them are rolling like crazy all over the place. They can get to one spot to another across the room in a matter of seconds. They are sitting up for brief periods (2 minutes or so) without support. They both will put weight on their legs.

They are pretty excited to see one another. Ben gets especially excited to see his sister. They are always trying to roll over one another to get where they need to go. They are developing quite the personalities and they are so fun to have in our family.

Kate weighed 16.2 at her 9 month check up and she wasn't even premature!

Isn't it crazy how fast these little guys are growing? I'm pretty sure that it's almost time you for to have another one! :)
