Check-ups & more

Both boys had their check-ups at the doctor yesterday - Quinn for his 2 year & Remy for his 4 month. Poor things both had shots. Quinn also had to have blood drawn for his annual thyroid check & x-rays of his neck to check for a condition common with kids who have DS. He was such a brave little guy! Already have the results of his bloodwork & everything looks good. Still waiting to hear about the x-rays, but not too worried about it. At 27" & 16lbs Remy is in the 96th percentile for length & 70th % for weight. Quinn is 34" & 27lbs which is 42nd percentile for height & 43rd for weight. The doc was overall very pleased with both boys.

Quinn's big news this week is that he has added a sign to his repertoire that we did not teach him! He learned how to sign "potty" from the Baby Signing Times video. I thought it was a fluke at first, but he now does it every time I prompt him with the word. We are thinking it might be time to buy a potty seat for him to start getting used to the idea. (Yikes, potty training!?!?) For now, this is his favorite activity in the bathroom - emptying out the bucket of magazines & unrolling all of the toilet paper. Lots of fun!

Remy is pretty much sleeping through the night - usually from about 9 or 10pm to 4 or 5am - we are sooooo happy about this.
(Now if I could just get myself to go to bed earlier!) He is a much more serious baby than Quinn - but when he does smile it simply melts my heart.

Remy had his first visit to "the office" this week - big brother showed him how it all works.


That's about it for now. The boys are both napping (a rare thing to have them asleep at the same time!) and I am going to take advantage of the quiet.
