Vist to the Doctor...for both kiddos!

I tried to get some photos of Leo this week, but he didn't cooperate! Sorry guys!

Sitting...kind of!

What fun it was to knock two visits to the doctor in one appointment. Not too much to report other than the kids are both happy and healthy. Dr. Crowley kept declaring how smart Leo is and remarked about what a good memory Somerset has. Summy was playing with the crinkly paper that protects the patient's bench and Dr. Crowley said she was impressed by how Summy could remember where she had left wads of the paper. Also, both kids had to have shots, which always makes me a sad mommy, but it is for their own good.

Here are the stats:

Weight: 29.3 lbs., 24-25% (highest on the chart ever, last year he had peaked at 12%)
Height: 37 inches, 40%

Weight: 16.2 lbs., 55-56%
Height: 26.3, 72%
Head Circ., 17 inches, 72%

Somerset is almost sitting. She sits for 20 second increments before she falls over on her side, but she is getting stronger by the day. She also babbles a lot and says a word that sounds like "Da-Da."

We made a scoreboard with stickers for Leo that helps reward him for good behavior. If he gets 3 days of good behavior for a particular action (not yelling, not throwing, staying on bed all night etc.), we let him choose a prize from a treasure box that we made. We got this idea from Dr. Crowley and we are really hoping it encourages Leo.

Other than that, we are just enjoying our kids so much. I feel so fortunate to have these little munchkins in my life.
