15 month checkup

Today was a busy day. We started off the morning by taking Jimmy to work, then headed over to visit our friends at PSL. It was an action packed visit. We headed home and ate gluten free blueberry pancakes, then we finished the day off with our wellness checkup with Dr Jim. Oh, and we accidentally missed a therapy appointment (sorry, Anne). 

If this post is bizarre it's because I've had two emergency dental surgeries this week and the issue is ongoing. I won't get into it here, but let's just say that my luck is such that if something bad is going to happen, it will happen to me. Anyways, this week has been a blur.

Today we saw lots of friends at PSL- our primaries, our nurses, our favorite doctors. It was so good to catch up with everyone we spent so much time with a year ago. They seem to be settling into the new unit quite well though it doesn't quite have the coziness of the old rooms we grew so fond of.

Our appointment with Dr Jim was thrilling as always. The little dragons rule the roost and make a great scene whenever we are there. Today was no exception. They showed off their walking, talking, noise making, troublemaking, and general shenanigans at all times. I'm glad my mom was there with me because they were a handful. 

Maisie: 16lb 12oz, 26.50 inches long
James: 14lb 14oz, 27.25 inches long

We all decided that Maisie will be the kid that breaks her arm doing something extreme, and that James will be the kid in the doctor's office because his sister broke his arm. 

Dr Jim thinks the babies are doing amazing and are right where they need to be - which is great for us to hear. We are heading into RSV season so we are stepping up quarantines and getting ready. Today the babies got their flu shots, DTAP, and HIB - all crucial for respiratory season. 

A reminder: please get your flu shot and if you are around kids, your pertussis. It's important. We urge all people who are sick to stay away from work (and us) so we can have another good RSV season to build healthy lung tissue!


A few bonus pictures if you got this far: James walking with his shopping cart and visiting Maisie in the pack and play aka Maisie Jail. Sometimes James needs the floor without threat of sister.
