It's been a long week here in the Edgar household. Kevin was completely out of commission for two days with the stomach flu and on Wednesday little Jake woke up from his afternoon nap with a fever. It seemed like his congestion, fever and cough came out of nowhere. He went to nap healthy and woke up a very sick little guy. He was pretty miserable on Thursday and completely annoyed with his brother. Anderson wanted to play and Jake just wanted to be left alone so the day was spent with Mommy peeling Anderson off of Jake. Every little thing Anderson did made Jake cry and unfortunately Anderson liked the reaction he was getting from Jake whether it was negative or not.
Today Jake started to feel better. He and Anderson were scheduled for their one year well visit this morning so off to the dr's we went....for a 8 a.m. appointment I might add. The dr. said Jake's lungs sounded clear and his ears looked good so we were relieved at that. The boys are growing well, they are in the 75th percentile for height and weight. Anderson was 22lbs. 14ounces and Jake was 23lbs. 6ounces. We were kinda surprised that they hadn't gained more than that but they are much more mobile these days and hardly sit still for longer than a minute so it looks like they are burning a lot of calories. Neither one cried when they were poked for a blood sample to check their iron levels and considering we were in a tiny 5x8 room for an hour and a half with them they were pretty cooperative.
