Towards the end of last week, both girls got their first colds. Evelyn's wasn't too bad--just a little head congestion and some sniffles. Jessica, on the other hand, has been miserable. She has congestion in her chest and is coughing a lot. Poor baby. We hope she shakes it soon.
Friday afternoon we had an appointment at the pediatrician for their Synagis shot to prevent RSV. They get this once a month through March. Not that any shot is pleasant, but these are evidently doozies. It takes some serious consoling to get them through. I keep waiting for the windows to shatter because their screams are so high pitched.
Today we had our 6 month check up at the pediatrician. Other than Jessica's congestion, both girls were perfectly normal. He was very happy with Evelyn's weight gain. Jessica is still tiny, but she's growing well...it's just hard to tell when Evelyn is overachieving! They both got four shots, which they handled better than their one shot on Friday. Here are their current stats:
Evelyn: 13 lbs 3 ozs, 23.5 inches long
Jessica: 9 lbs 15 ozs, 22 inches long
We have our second follow up appointment at Duke on Thursday. We'll let you know how that one goes.
Here's a picture that was taken over Thanksgiving.
