Triplet's Two Year Check Up

The triplets had their two year check up today. They are doing well, with really the only concern being their speech. Since we are already taking care of that, everything else seems great. Nathanial has yet another ear infection, so Dr. B (ped) called Dr. B (ENT) to confer about what to do. He is now on an antibiotic and his ears were cultured again and Dr. B (ENT) wants to see him in two weeks for a follow up. I wish spring would hurry up and get here. Incidentally, Noah's left tube is out now. He hasn't had as many infections as the other two, but he's had his share of them for sure.

Nathanial's stats were:
Height: 33" (roughly 15th percentile)
Weight: 25.8 lbs (~ 20th)
Head Circumference: 18.5" (~ 10th)

Ethan's stats were:
Height: 33 1/4" (~15th)
Weight: 26.2 (~25th)
Head Circumference: 18.5" (~10th)

Noah's stats were:
Height: 32" (~3rd)
Weight: 25.2 (~15th)
Head Circumference: 19" (25th)

Nothing real shocking about any of that. Ethan is a brute, and we knew that. Nathanial was a little surprising because he doesn't seem that heavy. Noah Noah is tiny and I knew it. We've affectionately called him "fat boy" since he was itty bitty (because of his cheeks), but in the last six months I've been looking at him and realizing just how petite he really is. We should probably stop, but now it's a term of endearment with him.

We meet with AEA about their speech evaluations next week and will see what they recommend. I still am praying that they qualify somehow.
They also finally got their MMR shots today. They were NOT happy about that. I'm just glad it's over with. They are still sleeping soundly after getting home...guess we should get them up soon!
