Of course I know the girls are going to grow and I know that they are getting bigger but when I see it on the scale it still blows my mind. Even little Rachel is now almost 10 pounds bigger than her birth weight!! She seems to tiny, I can't believe where she is today. The great news is that all the girls are doing excellent. They are "perfect" for their age. No one is lagging behind in the developmental area and they are all doing everything they should be for their age.
Here are the exact "stats":
Julianna Mabel - 17.5 pounds which puts her at about the 75th percentile for weight. Wow!! As for height she is 26 1/4 inches long in the 75th percentile. Her head is also in the 75th percentile :) She's the same all around!
Alyssa Elaine - 15.12 pounds which puts her at the 50th percentile for weight - an average 6 month old :) She is our tallest baby at 27 inches making her just under the 90th percentile mark. Wow again!! After much debate they determined that her head didn't shrink from last time and she is now in the 75th percentile for head circumference as well.
Rachel Gabrielle - 14.1 pounds which puts her at the 12% for weight - yes, I did write that right - obviously still our peanut! The surprise is that she's actually longer that Julianna at 26 1/2 inches and that puts her above the 75th percentile for height. Go figure. Her head circumference is about the 5th percentile. She is a tiny but long girl!!
Our other news from today is that we all spent the morning with some new friends - 2 year old identical girl triplets and their 4 year old big sister. We got a little glimpse into what we have to look forward to and in so many ways the future is just bright! I can't wait :) Granted, their mom did a lot of chasing and counting but the girls were well behaved and interacted very well. So much to look forward to...
