9 Month Well-Baby Visit

Matthew & Claire went to see Dr. Navai on September 28th for the 9 month check-up.  He said they're both doing great! They let their little personalities show by laughing throughout most of the visit (until it came time for shots).  This time they only received two shots, one was the polio vaccine and the other was the regular flu shot.  They were pretty unhappy during their shots but bounced back pretty quickly after they were able to have a bottle and be distracted by their Curious George stuffed animal. 

Claire now weighs 17lbs 6oz and is 28 1/4" tall; she is in the 25th percentile on weight and the 75th percentile in height.  Matthew now weighs 20lbs and is 28 3/4" tall; he is in the 50th percentile in weight and the 50th percentile in height.  They have to go back the end of October for their second round flu shot but they don't have to go back for another check-up until they're a year old!

This morning Matthew & Claire tried some scrambled eggs.  Claire really liked them, she was feeding herself as fast as she could off her tray.  Matthew was a little unsure, he sort of liked the eggs but seems to still prefer his oatmeal.  They seem to be more and more interested in "real food" so I think we'll try and start expanding their food repertoire.

Here are some photos of the babies trying their eggs:

Here are some photos of the babies playing patty cake.  They're pretty much clap every time you ask them to patty cake, but I have yet to catch it on video.
