Being a young mom means we met a little early, but I get to love them longer.

Doctor visit.

Yesterday I took Brentley and Grace to the doctor for his two month check-up and her two year check-up. He was actually almost twelve weeks old (he's twelve weeks today!), but I delayed his appointment, so that they could go at the same time instead of having to go twice in one month.

Grace was 28 lbs. I forgot that our scale was wrong when I weighed her the other day, so she's not 35lbs lol. She is also exactly three feet tall with a 19in. head. She had to have her finger pricked to get her blood count checked, and she didn't even cry! She just sat and watched the lady. Also, her blood count was good :)

Brentley weighed a whopping 19lbs at just 12 weeks old!! He was 25.5in. long with a 16in. head. He is definitely a chunker!!! He got two immunizations. DTaP and Rotavirus. He screamed :( And he was really fussy for the rest of the day. Not my normal happy little man. I hate immunizations :( But he is a happy little guy again today :) I am very thankful that he has not been sick at all. Grace had already had RSV twice by this point. I really feel that the breastfeeding has something to do with that. As soon as I stopped breastfeeding Grace, she started getting sick. Literally within a couple of days of when I stopped. It's like it was a shock to her immune system or something.

I am just happy to have two happy, healthy babies now :)

Now it's time for Thanksgiving!!


  1. That is awesome! I think Grace is almost as tall as Samantha. lol. But Samantha was 40 pounds at her 2 year.

    Brentley-wow. ;) Big boy. ;p But he is a cutie and it sounds like they are both doing well.

  2. When Cayle had croup they weighed him and he was 31 lbs. He has his appointment after Thanksgiving.

    I'm glad both of the babies are healthy. I can't believe he's already 12 weeks old.!
