Growing Growing Growing

Today Meera and I went to Doctor Alex's office for Meera's 6 week old Well-Baby-Visit. Meera now weighs 10 pounds 11 ounces. She's 23 inches long. She is in the 75th percentile for both height and weight. She is doing great physically and developmentally. Dr. Alex says that Meera is "extraordinarily alert and interactive for a six week old." Here's Meera Grace, in a photo of her on the changing table in her room last night, laughing so hard she could barely breath:

Kyle and Owen seem to be competing with their baby sister in the growth competition -- they appear to be in some sort of crazy growth spurt right now. Non-stop hungry (you'd be shocked if you could see how much they ate for dinner tonight) and they seem taller than even a couple of weeks ago. Our bathroom scale says that they each weigh precisely 45 pounds. I find it both bizarre/bewildering and amazing/amusing that they continue to both weigh the exact same amount. Recently they discovered something that they find very exciting-- they can now touch their feet together under the kitchen table when seated across from one another.

I love that last photo of K & O touching feet! I can so relate to the excitement of this discovery!! I hope when I have kids I will rememeber to document the wonderful little things that please children as they grow up.
