2 Month Check Up

Took the babies for their 2 month check up on Friday (yes Wandering Girl, your answers to my questions were much more insightful than the pediatricians). The babies were poked, prodded and pricked and still they haven't disowned us as parents (yet).

They got their first round of vaccinations. We made a bet on whose cry would be worse. Finn gave a pretty good performance, but in the end Mirabelle won the trophy.

In addition to the immunization shots, Lady Belle had to retake her metabolic blood test. This test required drawing blood from the heel of her foot (it took 10 years and 1000 screaming decibels to get enough blood for the test). We would have given her ice cream afterwards to make it all better but she doesn't know how to use a spoon, so instead we gave her infant Tylenol.

Finnlay weighed 10 lbs. 4 oz and measured 22.5 inches. Mirabelle weighed 11 lbs. 4 oz and measured 23.75 inches (off the chart according to the nurse). Both are healthy, growing at a wonderful pace and the cutest babies seen all week (okay, we made up that last one).
