This morning, we took the kids for their 18 month check-up. As usual, Dr. Roberts and the nurses were excited to see them. Everyone commented on how fast the trio has grown. Today their measurements were:
Sarah- 23lbs. 6ozs. (40th percentile) and 32 inches (60th percentile)
Jacob- 25lbs. 6ozs. (44th percentile) and 32 inches (42nd percentile)
Lucas- 25lbs. 0ozs. (39th percentile) and 33 inches (70th percentile)
We had to complete a development survey and each of the kiddos scored excellent! Sarah had met all the milestones with Luke missing just 1 and Jake missing just 2. They are right on track! The doc was not at all concerned that the boys cannot clearly say as many words as Sarah. Dr. Roberts says this is very common among boys and girls. The only "homework" he gave us before our next visit (2 year check up) is to begin talking about going potty with the kids. He doesn't expect we will even begin potty training until sometime after their second birthday, but he said it's a good idea to start introducing the concepts now.
Today the kids had to each have 2 vaccinations. But now they are completely done until age 4 with the exception of a seasonal flu shot. I know they are happy about that! We just pray that the kids will be healthy through these next few months and we don't have to see Dr. Roberts again until their 2 year check up in January.
Why I'm not stepping on the scale
