This week we went to Dr. Mills for Adam and Tyler's yearly check-up. Here is an update on each of the boys (with pictures from the Kid Time end of summer BBQ):

Alex didn't have an appointment, but he's just too cute to skip! Alex is now smiling all the time and starting to have the sweetest personality. He looks at me with so much love in his eyes that it just turns my heart to goo. He is also sleeping more at night which is fabulous. I don't know how much he weighs but he will be 3 months this week and is in 3 month clothes.

Adam is 5 now and acting like such a big boy. However he is measuring a little small. We went for his 2nd bone age x-ray a few weeks ago and Dr. Mills told us that he is still measuring as a 3 year old. He is also 39 lbs which puts him in the 30th percentile for weight and 40.3 inches which puts him in th 3rd percentile for height. They are concerned that his growth is so slow and want him to go to an endocrinologist for some tests. Other than that he is perfectly healthy and right on track. I'm not going to worry too much until we know the test results.

Tyler is 2 now and a ball of fire. I can barely keep up with the kid. I love him to pieces but he can really push my buttons and test my patience. He is also on the small side at 23 lbs (below the charts) and 33 inches (4th percentile). But the biggest concern with Tyler is that his feet or really turned in. We may be headed up to a Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon in Portland. We'll have to see what Dr. Mills decides. I hope his legs fix themselves because the surgery sounds awful! Other than that he is as healthy as can be.

I feel so blessed to have 3 beautiful boys who are so healthy and strong.
