Thursday Nick took the twins to their 1 year check up - yes 4 months late. Scheduling got off. Turns out both babies have ear infections so they needed anti-biotics. Henry weighted 21 lbs 4 ozs (25%) and was 31 inches (50%) tall. Hannah weighted 17 lbs 6 ozs (5%) and was 29 inches (25%) tall. Hannah actually has a larger head than Henry! The issue is that Hannah is in the 5th percentile for weight and is actually smaller now than at her 10 month check up that was three months ago. Part of this is that she was sick last week and not eating well. The Dr. told us to put her on a high protein, high calorie diet. This is tricky since she is a picky eater. So we are giving her greek yogurt and "double milk" with is whole milk mixed with dry non-fat milk. We are also trying to hide protein like eggs and meat in things she does like to eat. The Dr. said she is healthy just small. So we are on a mission to fatten the little girl up!

In other news we got 3 inches of snow last night! It was enough for Cali and I to play in it this morning during the twins nap time. She made a snow angel and made a snow ball pile. Cali lasted about 8 minutes before she decided she was cold and wanted to go back in.
Nick is on an overnight trip with students from church so the kids and I are playing solo. We felt brave tonight so all 4 of us went to Chick-fil-A for dinner alone. The good news is our local restaurant has nice workers who will bring high chairs to your table, bring you your food and put place mates down for the kids. This is huge cause I can't do those things with the babies in my arms! After we all ate all three kids played in the play area. It was the twins first time in there and they both did great! Hannah was happy playing in the toddler area. While Henry wanted to climb up the stairs and onto the slide.
