6 month check up, shots and a scary high temp

The girls had their six month check up (and shots) yesterday. They are now weighing/measuring in at 15 lbs 6 oz, 24.75 inches for Brooklyn and 14 lbs 15 oz, 25 inches for Bailey. They are both about 50th percentile for adjusted age/preemie comparison chart (they don't compare them to babies born at term yet). But, their head sizes are in the 85th (Brooklyn) and 75th percentile (Bailey). Apparently big heads run in the Barr family because my nephew Oscar (Darren's sister's kid) is the same way!

They also got a bunch of shots, including the flu shot. Bailey wasn't feeling so great later that night so I gave her Motrin. I took her temp a few hours after giving her Motrin and she was at 101.9! Yikes. I called the doctor, and she said as long as she was still eating some of her bottle and not lethargic just to keep an eye on it. Thankfully she seemed much better this morning. And she only woke up once in the night at 3:30 am. Poor little baby!
