We took the kids to the doctor for annual checkups. The girls did FANTASTIC and for the first time were talking, laughing, being silly and answering all of the doctor’s questions themselves, without encouragement from us. They also got their first eye exam done. Even though the nurse only asked about one line, they got every one right. It was cute to watch!
I only got these two pictures from the appointment, because… well, three kids… I was kinda busy.
Sorry the lighting is terrible.
Alyssa went first. Here are her stats:
Height: 44.5 inches (113.0 cm- I’m including this for a reason) 80th percentile
Weight: 42 lbs 4 oz- 61st percentile
Height: 44.8 inches (113.7 cm- ya, not even a full cm difference!) 83rd percentile
Weight: 43 lbs 2 oz- 66th percentile
Height: 39 inches -79th percentile (My brother, who is 6’3″ was 38 inches at 3 years)
Weight: 37 lbs 4 ounces – 90th percentile
Wyatt was not cooperative and Russell took him, sans clothes, out to the car kicking and screaming as soon as the doctor was done attempting to look at him. The girls had to stay a bit longer to get 3 shots each, plus blood drawn. The doctor also wanted a urine sample, but ya. That wasn’t going to happen. Alyssa got her blood drawn first and cried. Kylie hopped up next and they told her to look away before they inserted the needle. She wouldn’t turn her head because she wanted to watch. She was very curious about the whole process and told me later she wanted to see if her blood would be light or dark. Here they are afterwards.
Kylie got referred to a dermatologist to look at a mole on the back of her neck (brought up by me, not the doctor) but otherwise we have normal, healthy kiddos. See you next year, doc!
