TWO year old checkup

Since Lexi was off school today, I took advantage of the extra set of hands and took the babies (can I call them that anymore???!!!) for their 2yo well checkup. All four did really well. The pediatrician continues to be impressed with their progress. He sees NO signs of any form of Cerebral Palsy, which normally becomes evident about this time. I must say, this is one fear I have had since finding out I was pregnant with multiples. There are so many risks involved with carrying so many babies at once, and I just continued to feel so blessed that we seem to have (knock on wood!) escaped the *major* issues involved with prematurity and multiples. Anyway, according to the pediatrician, all four received an "A+" today! :) Mommy always likes to hear that! Here are the 2yo stats in birth order:

Matthew 21.9 lbs 31 1/2 inches long 19in. HEAD
Emma 25.1 lbs 33 inches long 18 1/4 in. HEAD
Katie 22.8 lbs 32 inches long 18 1/4 in HEAD
Austin 28.05lbs 35 1/2 inches long 19 in. HEAD

Isn't it funny how the boys and girls both have matching head sizes? Even Matty and Austin!? lol....... :)

Great weights!! Matty is almost the same as Gavin when he went for his 2yo check-up.

So glad to hear all is well. I do understand you fears of when you are expecting multiples. We go in a few weeks. I have a feeling many of the weights will be the same.

"A+... no points off!" ... famous last words ... Gotta love Dr. Sheth! :)
So happy to hear they all "weighed in" well and are so healthy! You are VERY fortunate and blessed.
YAY Wilke Quads! :)
