I am excited to say that Drake has had a wonderful week! Both his speech therapist and physical therapist were extremely impressed with his hard work! On Thursday, Drake ate an entire bowl of oatmeal with his speech therapist. Our clever little boy was supposed to be working on his head control the other day, but he figured out that he could play music by slightly moving his head. Each time he finished listening to the music he would grin a giant grin! He repeated this cause and effect to his delight (and ours) for a good 10 minutes. Brian and Poppy have both commented this week that they have seen Drake smile more in the past few days than they ever have before.
This morning Brian and I headed to the pediatrician with the babies for their 18 month well check. Their doctor was very pleased with both if their progress. Drake weighed in at 22# and measured 30.5" and Kennedy weighed in at 18.7# and 28.75". That puts Drake in the 15th% for baby boys his age and Kennedy is in the 3rd% for girls her age. The doctor began going over 15 month mile stones for Kennedy and quickly realized that she has reached all of those and the 18 month ones; she checked off several on the 20 month list, too.
