Boys' Stats

We had doctor's appointments for the boys this past week (two month and 15 month checkups).  Here's where they're at lately......

McKay - 2 months
Height: 22 3/4 inches, 35%
Weight: 12 lbs. 6 oz., 50%

Jax - 15 months
Height: 30 1/2 inches, 30%
Weight: 23 lbs 14 oz., 40% 

They both needed shots and Jax fought with all the might he had.  It was awful.  Thankfully Natalie was with us and took McKay and Sadie out to the waiting room so I could focus on Jax.  

Both are very healthy.  I have been very worried about Jax's head lately.  He has started to develop ridges along the suture lines and they had previously been worried about craniosyntosis.  The pediatrician said he was fine and there's nothing to worry about.  What a relief!

As an interesting sidenote: McKay weighed at 6 weeks what Sadie weighed at 6 months.  She was the tiniest little baby.

Also, do you find it shocking that Jax is only in the 30th and 40th percentiles?  There must me some really BIG kids out there if that's where he falls.
