A couple weeks ago, Cooper, 2years old already, and Iris (my 3 month old) visited the doctor for the obligatory check up.
Cooper was 27lbs, 35 inches tall. Although he's in the 30-40th percentile for his age and size/weight, he's in good health, which I knew:)
Iris was 14lbs. 12oz. and 25 1/2 inches tall. She's in the 97th percentile! The doctor commented on how she loves breastfed babies, because they plump up so much. I was slightly amused and explained that they were both breastfed babies, but they have different metabolisms. She is a new doctor for us since our old one decided to start teaching at the UW. I like her, and hope that she remembers that Cooper is and probably always will be a light weight kid instead of asking me what he eats:)

They are very different little people. Iris is a happy, easy baby during the mornings and day while Cooper is most likely to be cranky. Then, she's usually fussy as she fights going to sleep for the night. Cooper is a night owl like his daddy and is pretty good while I have a cranky girl on my hands. So, it works out. There have only been a handful of times when I've sat on the floor with two wailing kids, unable to make everyone happy. It's getting easier to manage them both, and I look forward to the day when they can play together.
