4 Month Update

The twins had their 4 month infant cruelty session today. Both babies are growing like weeds (literally . . . Mirabelle's height is still off the chart and Finn is about to join her).

The day's activities were exhausting for Lady Belle (she retired at 6p). Finn, on the other hand is still up and smiling (it's 8:32p).

Nothing outstanding from this appointment, other than convincing our doctor to moonlight as an overpriced 'Board-certified' babysitter to the rich and famous (we negotiated a 10% cut). Keep your fingers crossed on this new venture (Harvard ain't cheap, but then neither is community college these days).

Our poor babies also endured another round of immunization shots. We tried the infant Tylenol 30 mins. before appointment (they still cried something close to pathetic). As a consolation prize, Mommy and Daddy enjoyed ice cream cones on the drive home.

Mriabelle weighs 14 lbs and is 26.5 inches tall. Finn weighs 13 lbs 6 oz and is 26 inches tall. I found a pretty cool growth chart tracking device on the Gerber website.

Here's a snapshot of the babies' growth rates since birth:

Mirabelle's weight at 4 months

Mirabelle's height at 4 months (SU-PER Model!)

Finn's weight at 4 months (lean and mean lovin' machine)

Finn's height at 4 months
(see that steep incline between 2 - 4 months? It directly correlates to an increase in late night feedings . . . grrrrh)
