Walkin' Babies

We have video of Cate demonstrating her waling skills also, but Blogger says the file is too big...so we'll try again later with a different video (but, she Cate can do it too).

The Latest Stats...

Tuesday July 22nd was the day of the babies' latest doctor visit. As usual, we feel bad for Cate, Eve and Jonah when they have to endure the pain of the shots...but we always feel much worse for the nurse because she has to give shots to not one, but three babies. Invariably, the nurse is all but in tears when the injections have ended...it would be nice if we could say the same for our little monsters. Cate was the one with the stiffest upper lip; she cried while she received her shots, but returned to her normal demeanor (and color) almost immediately. Jonah fared the second best followed by poor Eve. Eve has also fallen victim to the fever that sometimes attacks the immunization-ees (although she is back to normal now too).

Anyway, on to the stats...

Cate weighs 19lbs and 13oz and she is 28 1/2" long.

Eve weighs 19lbs and 6oz and she is 28 1/2" long.

Jonah weighs 20lbs and 13oz and is 29" long.

Since their last vist, Eve, all by herself, gained almost as much as Cate and Jonah did together so, she is all done with being the frail little one that everyone needs to be worried about...she's ready to run with the big dogs (and Winston too).

That is not to belittle what Cate and Jonah accomplished...all three of them are right on track, in the appropriate growth range, and they seem to be as normal as they can be considering who their parents are.
