The twins' 18 month visit at 20 months

These posts are a little out of order. On February 21st, we took Aiden and Izzy to the doctor. We were supposed to have the babies' well baby visits in December, but with Christmas and New Years and then us moving, we had to push it back a few months. So all their percentiles are off (they use the 18 month age automatically) and I just left them off.

 
Aiden Height: 32.5"
Head Circumference: 47.5 cm
Weight: 23 lb 11.3 oz
 
We talked to the doctor about Aiden's "toddler colic." That is not a real term; it's just one I made up. It's the only way I can think to describe it. When a baby has colic, he/she cries and whines all the time. This is what Aiden does all. the. time. Whew! It's exhausting. Our pediatrician said what we guessed he was going to say, which is that it sounds normal. It's a phase and he should grow out of it. I'll say, that the past few days have been much better. I just think some of it is his personality. He wants what he wants. He is so vibrant and full of life and on the move all the time and he gets frustrated when anything is in his way. I just wanted to double/triple check that it wasn't anything to do with his kidneys or acid reflux or something.
Isabella Height: 32"
Head Circumference: 47 cm
Weight: 20 lb 11 oz
 
The only concern we had about Isabella was her constipation. We've been having to add Miralax into her bottles to help her little tummy break down her food. Basically we were told that it is completely normal in some kids and to continue to do what we are doing. She should grow out of it.

We were struggling after our pediatrician was finished, while waiting for the nurse to do the vaccines. So, what else are we to do when we've got three grumpy, restless kiddos? Turn on music! Want video evidence? 

And now you also have video evidence of the hitting that we've got going on in this household. Whoa! This is so different than when Connor was a baby, because he didn't have two siblings stealing. Yikes. We're working on it. We're always a work in progress over here.
