18 month check up!

The kiddos had their 18 month check up today! I cannot believe how big they are! Aaron weighs 29lbs 13oz (90th percentile) and is 33 3/4 inches long (90th percentile). Jillian is 24lbs 7oz (50th percentile) and is 33 inches long (75th-90th percentile). They are doing really well developmentally, both say two word combinations and are building a pretty big vocabulary!

And I don't know if this is going to cause debate or not, but I wanted to bring it up, the H1N1 vaccine. I asked our pediatrician if she thought the kiddos needed it and she said that since they are not in a daycare situation it was really a personal choice. Kids in her office that have caught it are responding really well to Tamiflu and there haven't been any complications. I was hesitant about giving them the shot anyway, so I'm glad that in the end it was my choice, and the choice was to not get them vaccinated. I'm not a fan of flu shots in general, from what I've noticed people tend to get the flu anyway and it winds up being worse. I'm sure this shot is different, but in the end I think I made the right decision and am glad it was my decision.

That's about it over here, hope you're having a great day!

We chose not to get the shot for a lot of the same reasons! So glad they are growing big and strong.
