Aubrey and Lilly's Dr Appointments

Today Aubrey had another check up with the Endocrinologist. For some reason her height and weight has started to level out again. At 2 1/2 she now weighs 21 lbs and is 32 inches tall. Still not on the growth charts yet. The doctor was a little concerned so he ordered an x-ray of her hand to see the age of her bones. They are at 18 months to 2 years which is a good sign. It just means that she is probably just not eating enough and not something seriously wrong. He encouraged us to make sure that she got more calories. Part of her problem is that she is a slow eater and would rather play than eat. She will have another check up with the Endocrinologist in about 4 months and if she still is not gaining weight then he will have some more test done.

Lilly on the other hand does not have the same weight issues that her sister has. She has been gaining weight with no problems. Lilly is now almost 6 weeks old. Wow! Time goes by so fast. When she was only 4 days old she had lost just a little bit of weight and was at 8 lbs 10 oz and 21 inches. By the time she was 2 weeks old she had already gained a pound and was at 9 lbs 11 oz and was 22 inches long.
