|Making their cozy coupe even cozier|
Today the boys went for their 15 month well visit at the pediatrician. Asher weighed 23 pounds, 12 ounces and they said he was 31.5 inches tall, but I think he is taller. Benjamin weighed 23 pounds, 4 ounces and measured 31 inches tall. They are both continuing to grow, which I like to hear. The doctor told us again that they look very healthy. Their physical development is great, since they are both walking (and running), and can climb everything in sight. The doctor did notice their various bumps and bruises, which we have just become so accustomed to seeing that we barely see them anymore!
I still have concerns about the fact that they aren't talking, but the doctor said he is willing to wait a little bit longer before we call early intervention. To be honest, my "gut" tells me that nothing is wrong- if it said otherwise I would be pushing for early intervention right now. But both boys can clearly hear just fine, and can understand some of what we say. They do communicate, and they both babble. They are very interactive, and love to make eye contact. We are trying to work on getting them to say some words, but it doesn't seem to appeal to them yet. I think I would be more worried if all of their same-age friends were talking up a storm, but most of the other children we know their age are not really talking yet, either. So we'll see. We are working on getting them to say more, ball, cat, mama, and dada/daddy right now.
Other than that, we had a wonderful visit with Eric's family up in Maine, which will have to get its own post, with pictures. We went swimming, ate ice cream, and played with family- the perfect summer trip!
