Our little ones

We had the check-up at the doctor today for both Chaselyn and Jacob. And just as I started typing I realized that we took 0 pictures. Which makes me extremely sad. I am taking full responsibility, and trying not to make excuses, but we got in extremely quickly (Stanton and Chaselyn hadn't even made it yet). And then we had nurses asking questions to me and having Stanton take the kids down to get weighed and measured.

Chaselyn weighs 28 lbs. 6 oz. and is 32.5 inches tall. That puts her in the 90th percentile for weight, 75th percentile for height, and 80th percentile for height to weight ratio. She's kind of a chunk. But that's ok, she always has been. Her head growth is finally leveling out. She is meeting (and surpassing) all the developmental milestones such as using at least 10 words, identifying at least 2 body parts, walking, pointing to things she wants, etc. There are no signs of autism. And, she didn't even have to get any shots. The only down side is that she has a serious yeast infection right now, but we got a prescription and will get that taken care of soon.

Jacob is growing fast. He weighs 7 lbs 14 oz. We didn't get his length, Stanton was holding his head and he was screaming and I was back in the exam room answering questions. But I think he's longer. He was in the 25th percentile for weight, 50th percentile for height, and the 30th percentile for height to weight ratio. So he's a little on the string bean side. He too seems to be doing ok on his milestones. He seems to eat, sleep, and poop in the appropriate amounts. Right now he gets lots of hiccups, which is normal, but sad to watch. His rare bouts of fussing are usually immediately followed by rooting or tooting. His skin is peeling, which means he's shedding that newborn look already. His cord fell off on Saturday, but still had a little more healing to go. Dr. Dewbre said he should be ready for his first real bath in a couple days.

Here's some pics from Jacob's 2 week photo shoot. The first few were taken when we were trying to figure out the appropriate settings.


  1. oh so sweet! Glad your kiddos are doing well! Can you believe your a mom to two kids?! So amazing how much life changes in what seems like a short amount of time, love it!

  2. Today I was talking to a friend and mentioned taking "the kids" somewhere. It was weird to say and hard to believe that I have kidS. That's plural!
