Six Month Update

We went to the doctor yesterday for Anna Claire’s and Charlie’s six month check-up.  I’m glad to report that all is well. [other than the fact that they each got 4 shots! 😦 ] Anna Claire is 11 pounds 14 ounces and 23.5 inches long.  Charlie is 14 pounds 5 ounces and 24.5 inches long.  For most babies, the doctor will give the parents an idea of the percentile in which their child falls.  This is a little tricky for Anna Claire and Charile.  They are technically 6 months old, but if we go by their gestational age, they are 10 weeks younger.  With all that said, looking at the growth charts for a 6 month old, Charlie is in the 10th percentile for height and weight and AC is not on the chart.  However, the good news is, if you look at the chart for a baby who is almost 4 months old, Charlie is in the 50th percentile for height and weight and AC is in the 25th percentile for height and weight.  🙂 We are very pleased with their progress.  Please continue to pray that they keep growing and developing mentally and physically.  We have overcome so many hurdles in the past six months.  We pray for continued progress. 

Here’s a picture of Anna Claire and Charlie having a picnic with Daddy last week.  picnicMore pictures coming soon!
