Tale of the tape

The kids both had appointments to visit the doctor yesterday, Isaiah for his four month checkup, and Makenna for her 15 month checkup. And while the doctor was pleased with the rate of growth for both of the kids, he was equally as shocked to see how quickly Isaiah was catching up to his big sister! They both also had to get shots, so at the end of the appointment, it wasn't a pretty sight in the examination room =( Nevertheless, it only took them a couple of minutes to steady themselves afterwards and calm down. For Isaiah, he found comfort in his pacifier, while Makenna seemed to forget that she just got poked with a needle and went about her business of moving the furniture around in the lobby. When we got home, both kids were pretty mellow, none of the lasting effects from the shots that we're accustomed to seeing. Hopefully they're happy disposition carries over to the next couple of days while they're with Grandma! Here are their current stats:

Isaiah = 16.7 lbs (90th percentile), 24.5 inches (25th percentile), head circumference = 43 cm (75th percentile)

Makenna = 25 lbs (75th percentile), 30.5 inches (25th percentile), head circumference = 46.5 cm (50th percentile)

The funny thing about Isaiah, is that he weighed exactly the same at this appointment as Makenna did at her four month appointment. How trippy is that? Also, check out their dome sizes. His head is almost as big as hers!!
