Boys - Six Month Check

The boys had their six month check appointment with the pediatrician today and they did great. Here they are at the doctor's office. Wondering what fun they were going to have. Liam's on the left, Tommy on the right.



The end wasn't fun. Liam had 3 shots and Tommy had four. Tommy had four because his weight was high enough to make his Synagis (RSV) shot 2 shots instead of just 1. Poor boys. I gave them some Motrin for the pain in the afternoon. They were just so miserable. I worked from home this afternoon to keep an eye on the boys. I was able to get some good pics of the boys today. Here are my favorites - Liam is on the left in the pics and Tommy on the right. BTW, we do that on purpose to make Liam look to the left at his brother more. He has a tight muscle in his neck (torticolis) that make him want to keep his head to the right, so we try to give him reasons to look to his left.





Here's Liam with his beautiful eyes. He was really tired, though.


Here's Tommy on tummy time with his gorgeous peepers. His eyes are shaped just like his daddy's but they are blue instead of brown.



But of course you all want to know their stats at the doctor's office. Basically in the last two months, they have gained 2 pounds and 2 inches. So an inch and a pound a month. Here they are:

Tommy:
weight - 17 lbs. 5 oz. (7.85 kg)
length - 27 1/4 inches (69.2 cm)

Liam:
weight - 14 lbs. 10 oz. (6.62 kg)
length - 26 1/2 inches (67.3 cm)

Hope everyone had a great day!
