Doctors Appointment - 18 Month Check Up

This morning Nana helped me take the girls to visit the Doctor. They did great, especially Maddie. She hardly shed a tear. Izzie started crying and then saw herself in the mirror crying so she started to ham it up a bit. Both girls came out a bit anemic, so back on the poly-vi-sol vitamins with iron. The doc said this was very common for toddlers because they are growing so fast that their bodies use up all the iron the eat. She says it's not an absorption problem because their levels are not that low. We also had some lovely discussion on poop. We are going to try 2% milk, then 1% milk for awhile to see if that helps some of their "issues." She said the high fat in whole milk can sometimes cause problems. Other than that, they are doing really great. She said they will be tall like their Daddy.

Official Stats:
Madeline:
Weight: 25.6 lbs. 50th percentile

Thanks for the extra inch :) I'm a lovely 5'2" thanks to Mema and the rest of the shorties in the family. Pepaw didn't spare me one inch.

And yes, it will be interesting having daughter that are taller than me.
