3 Month check-up

The boys had their 3 month check-up yesterday! Monica and I noted when we were getting ready to leave how much easier it is to pack them up and go. When they were a month old and younger, it was quite the ordeal to go to the doctor or anywhere for that matter. We would try to feed them right before leaving so they wouldn't be starving in the middle of the appointment. Both mommy and babies did not do well nursing in public. We have made a point to get them out since they were born. After two vacations and carting them all over the place since they were wee little fellas, packing up and leaving has gotten very easy. It has paid off so far, getting them out of the house. Yesterday as well, I had forgotten about my 5-year old cousins last T-ball game. Both boys were tired and a little whiny from their shots, but we had them packed up and out the door in 5 minutes or so!

Anyway, back to the doctor appointment. Everything went great! Our doctor said the boys look great and are right on track with growing and developing! Every question they asked about development, we were like "Oh, they've been doing that forever!" :)

Let's see, what else have they learned. Jace knows how to suck his thumb. Jeriah can blow bubbles. Jace is close to rolling from his back to his tummy. Jeriah rolls onto his side and almost grabs his feet on a daily basis. He also likes to put his feet against something. No matter where he is laying he will twist himself to get his feet against something so he can kick it. Even if that something ends up being his brother, lol.

They both get more and more vocal every day. We love it! Yesterday morning Jace was laying in the office with me while I was doing treatments and cooing as loud as he could. He was putting everything he had into it. It was so cute!! I love hearing their voices!

Oh, back to the doctor appointment. Jace weighed 13 pounds 3 ounces and is 24 1/4 inches long. He's in the 20th percentile for his weight and 40th for his length. Jeriah weighed 11 pounds 10 ounces and is 23 1/2 inches long. He's in the 3rd percentile for his weight and 10th for his length. I call him my "skinny boy" all the time. He really isn't skinny at all, but compared to Jace he looks skinny.

They got their shots yesterday too. Jeriah cried until I picked him up and gave him some breast milk in a bottle. He calmed down really quickly. Jace screamed bloody murder and did not calm down very quick, lol. Poor little guy! It seemed like after the pain was gone he was crying/whimpering because he got his little feelings hurt. It was sad to watch both of them, but overall they did really good!

I'll leave you with some pictures and video!
