Today we headed back to our pediatrician for the triplets' 4 month checkup. We are a couple weeks past due but it takes a while to get an appointment for all 3 babies. Each of the babies had to get an injection of Prevnar (pneumonia, meningitis, etc.) and Pentacel (diphtheria, tetanus, pertussis, etc.) which was not fun but they did great! The doctor was very pleased with their individual developmental progress. Here are their stats:
Sarah: weight is 13lbs 12ozs (27th percentile) and height is 23.5 inches (7th percentile)
Jake: weight is 16lbs 6ozs (53rd percentile) and height is 24.5 inches (11th percentile)
Luke: weight is 14lbs 7ozs (17th percentile) and height is 24.5 inches (11th percentile)
All of their percentiles are non-adjusted meaning they are based on other babies their same birth age (not the age they were supposed to be born). Each of their stats are better than they were at their 2 month checkup so they are getting better by the day. Great job little ones!
