3 years

I took the boys to the Doctor today for their 3 year check up. J weighed in at 27 pounds and is 36 1/4 inches tall. D is a whopping 25 pounds and 36 inches tall. When I first went into Dr. Shulman's office for their 1st checkup, I think J weighed around 6 pounds and he was 2 months old. D was probably just over 5 pounds. We went to Dr. Shulman's office once a week for the first month, then it went down to every 2 weeks, then once a month. Even after we got through those critical first months, we were in and out of the doctor because the boys got sick so often. D has had pneumonia 3 times and has been hospitalized twice; J has had croup several times and was almost hospitalized for it once. Today, the Doctor said "either you're seeing someone else or the boys' health is very good". We've only been to the office once since their 2 year check up. What a difference! They're on track developmentally and while they may be small, they're feisty and smart and doing just what 3 year olds should do. And that is the best birthday present I could have asked for them.
