Well checks all around

Yesterday evening I finally got to take Evan to her 2 month well check, and I had held off Luke's 3 year well check until now so I'd only have to make one trip.  When we got there we did the weigh ins, the temp checks, and the height checks, yada yada yada.  Then came a first for my little guy. 

He got to wear a paper robe.

I was THRILLED that I just happen to have my camera in my bag from taking it to work, so I yanked that thing out and started snapping.

I kept taking pictures until he hid in the corner to get me to stop.

And my very favorite view of the whole thing?

That cute little hiney poking out of the back. 

I didn't get the percentages for Luke, and I don't remember how tall he was, but I do remember that he weighed in at 31 lbs even.  I think he's about average.  Always has been.  My girl though?  I knew she was big but get this- her weight was in the 97% (13 lbs, 6 oz) and her height was in the 90% (23 1/2 inches) with her head circumference in the 50%.  Big body, little head.  Luke has never been above 75%  in anything, ever.  I asked Kim if she was going to be bigger that him, and she said there is a really good chance.  YIKES.  The last thing a boy wants is for his little sister to be bigger than he is!!  I pulled Luke's baby book out to see what he weighed at 2 months and shockingly he was 12 lbs 8 oz and 23 inches long.  Not too terribly smaller, but the growth curve for boys is set higher than it is for girls since they are typically a bit bigger.  That's why his percents have always been so much lower than what hers are. 

Anyway, the point is, I've got a fatty on my hands.  Or as most people put so nicely, she's a "healthy" girl.  I promise she's only had formula once since getting out of the NICU, that's all from nursing!

Today Mom, Ashley, and Grandy brought the kids up to the office to take me to lunch.  My sweet boy asked me if I could just come home instead.  :(  I wish, little dude.  Yesterday I met Jenn for lunch, and then she was scheduled to bring me dinner last night.  It was this super good chicken bake!  I believe it will be coming with me to work tomorrow for lunch.  Tonight it is Tamara bringing dinner.  It has been SO. NICE. to be able to just come home and relax and not scramble to try and feed the troops.  I am really going to have to get my act together after next week!

As my MIL said to me the other day about my almost one-month-old, "you're a good milker" haha!!

You got yourself some goooood milk in there. I just checked back on Eva's stats, at 2 months she was 11 lbs 4.5 ounces and 22 3/4 inches long.

I wish I could bring you dinner next week :)

I just looked back at Mady's stats and she was 14.5 at 2 months! No worries, she will start crawling and be a skinny minny like you! :) Chunky babies are cuter anyway. Those are beautiful pictures of her!
