10 month check up



The girls had their official check up yesterday. It was the 9 month check up, but we couldn't get in till they were 10 months. So here are the stats. Audrey is 30 inches tall and weighs 19#15 oz. That puts her in the 50% for weight and 95% for height. Lydia is close behind at 29 1/2 inches tall and 19#2 oz. Which places her in the 50% for weight and 90% for height. The Doctor said we have beautiful slender girls. Not skinny, slender. I had to laugh that they are so tall. He keeps asking me where we get such tall kids from. I DON'T KNOW! Myles is still a giant at 39# and 40 inches tall. Off the charts for him.

On a more serious note the doctor detected a slight heart murmur on Lydia. He just wants to watch it for the next little while, but we may be going to visit a Cardiologist in the future. It isn't the kind of thing a parent likes to hear from the Pediatrician, but I'm trying not to get to worried about it and just wait till we have more information. Anyone an expert in this area is welcome to send any and all information my way.

The girls are doing great! Hitting all their Milestones and are just a general delight to have. They couldn't be more happy babies. Lydia is "soldier crawling" all over the house, while Audrey is content to sit still or roll to her destination. Most of the time she doesn't move at all. They both have two teeth on the bottom and are "talking" a lot. They love to be near each other but and are not so nice to each other when it comes to hitting and kicking.

My brother had a heart murmu and he played rugby his whole life, no one knew, served a mission, just fathered a healthy daughter.
Hopefully it's nothing, but if it's something, she'll be alright.
That's my humble 'I'm not a doctor' opinion.

I've heard that the majority of the population has a heart murmur or hole in their heart at some point, and that it's actually no big deal. I think if it were a big deal, he would have sent you straight to the Cardiologist.
I still can't believe they are sisters!

Audrey looks like a doll in that first picture! I can't believe how long they are. I didn't realize.

When Emma was 6 months old they detected a heart murmur. She went to the cardiologist and had an ultrasound (can't remember the offical name......EKG?). Anyway, by the time she was 1 year old the cardiologist couldn't detect anything so it closed up on it's own. Hopefully that will be the case with Lydia (I think that's what you said?) and it'll end up being nothing.
