Neonatal Clinic Visit

After our first visit to the neonatal clinic a while back, the developmental specialist decided that we should come back again in two months to re-check Daniel to be sure that his development was coming along. He wasn't super far behind at that time, but this skill you see here of him attempting to grab his toes wasn't something he was doing two months ago for instance.
The minute we put Caleb on the mat, he was figuring out a way to roll off of it, which of course is very typical Caleb behavior! His skill developmentally has been far above what they have expected of his adjusted age, so that is great for him! David and I both attribute his success to his determined personality. Daniel is more laid back and just isn't as interested in moving as our Caleb boy.

Here they are together on the mat. We also had them weighed and Caleb has finally surpassed his chunky brother in weight, but only by two ounces! Daniel was 17 pounds 10 ounces and Caleb was 17 pounds 12 ounces. My mom informs me that I weighed around 17 pounds at one year, so even our preemies are beating that! Apparently, I wasn't a big eater and was very active and so hence the low weight at age one.

The boys are doing great! I'm glad to hear it. They are so cute. If you haven't read my blog lately, I'm a new auntie now! My sister-in-law had her baby finally! Check it out!
