Alexis weighed 15 pounds even and is 25 inches long.
The doctor predicts that both girls are going to be very tall!
While waiting for the doctor both girls were very intrigued by the paper that lined the exam table. Who knew ripping and crinkling exam table paper could be so fun? See below picture: Addison (left) and Alexis (right). As you can see in the picture Alexis still has her hemangioma on the left side of her chest. It is shrinking but only time will tell if we need "medical intervention" for removal. As long as she isn't bothered by it we are going to let nature take its course.
The girls got a jump a roo for Christmas from Grandma and Grandpa Zehner (aka Ga Ga and Pop Pop). Our pediatrician had previously told us to stear clear from jumpy toys because preemies are more apt to get hip displasia. We got the go ahead from the pediatrician for the girls to jump their little hearts out! Alexis loves it, Addison well, not so much. See the below video of Alexis in the "jumpy" for the first time.
The pediatrician also told us that the girls should start eating more solid foods. She suggested starting with puffs and teething biscuits. We gave the girls teething biscuits for the first time this evening. Wow, I was shocked at how messy those things are! The girls loved them! Addison went to town on hers. She was knawing on it with her two little teeth. Alexis pretty much just slobbered all over hers but she still enjoyed it. We now know that "cookie time" is only going to happen close to bath time since the girls made such a big mess. Alexis loved the few puffs that we gave her but Addison tried swallowing them whole, so we are going to have to revaluate her eating those right now.
