Life After the Second Line

Great news

P & E had their four month checkup today. Everything looked perfect! Granted, they're both still awfully tiny for being four months old, with Ethan not registering on the chart at all and Peyton slipping into roughly the third percentile for weight (but tenth for head size -- clearly she's going to have a huge brain like her mother), but I have to keep in mind that they should only be about 2.5 months old. For that age, they're about average. Besides, the important thing is that their growth curves look normal, which they do.

We're not allowed to start cereal yet though, which is a downer. I would kill -- kill! -- to get a full night's sleep at this point, and I've convinced myself that cereal is the magic bullet. One more month, the doctor says. Argh.

Aside from that, though, it was all good. The doctor said both babies look great and seem to be developing just fine, so unless they get sick, he won't be seeing them again until they hit six months. Works for me -- I saw more than enough doctors the first seven weeks of their lives!

And on an unrelated subject, having a "new" blog sucks ass. Granted, this blog is mostly for me, so that I'll have a record of P & E, but it was nice to have readers back at the old place. And nice to get a few comments once in a while. Then again, it is my own stupid ass fault for deleting the old blog, so I'll have to take my lumps. Nonetheless, if you know anyone who wouldn't be offended by reading a baby blog now and then, send them my way, would you? Please?


  • Ha! Found you girlie! Imagine my surprise when I saw you on Amanda's blog roll--how I've missed you!

    Glad to hear that P&E are doing so well--they're growing on a normal curve so that's good. My own is not so big herself but growing accordingly so that's good news.

    Hope the time flies by for the next month until you can start cereal. We started it about a week and a half ago and it gives us about a 5-6 hour stretch of sleep--not every time but more often than not. So hold's coming.

    I've bookmarked you so I'll be reading along--so there's me! And hopefully several others following too (which I don't doubt).

    Hugs to you and those gorgeous babes!

  • Here's a comment (and I almost never comment anywhere): Just before I read your last paragraph I was thinking how glad I am that you are back. I really had kept wondering how you all were doing. I remember reading your early pregnancy and being so touched by your anxiety and fear, and so glad your outcome was so great. So I'm glad to listen every day to how it develops!

  • Found you by accident - I had missed hearing about P and E and still had the old blog on my list. Don't do anything dumb and delete this one!

    So pleased to hear they are growing well.

  • I used to lurk around your old blog and was so glad to find this one! I certainly don't mind reading baby blogs...hope to have a full-time baby-only blog in about 7 weeks or less. :)
