All 3 kids had their "well visits" today and all was good. Well, minus that Mabel fell face first off a chair right in front of the dr. It's hard to watch the other ones when I am helping the dr. look into ears, etc. She recovered and then the dr watched me reward shots with candy. Yup, right there in the room :) You do what you gotta do right?
The kids at the Howard Hughes Center the other night when I motivated and took them all out to dinner when Ryan was out of town.
Here are their stats:
Jeremy weighed in at 50 lbs (I can't believe I have a kid who weighs 50 lbs!!!!!). He is 45 inches tall which is on the taller side. He is 75% for both. He passed vision and hearing tests with flying colors and after he finished the nurse said "I wish every kid would listen, follow directions and respond like he did"! Good job J!
Amelia weighed in at 28 lbs (15%) and is 36 inches tall (25%)! She had one shot and got a finger prick for a blood test. All looks good. She's come a long way at the dr. She will actually let them look in her ears, mouth, etc and she tries to talk with them. She used to start crying the second the dr came in the room.
Mabel weighed in 27 lbs and is 33 inches tall. Her weight % is down from 95% to 90%. If you could see her chart her line plateaued between her last appt and now. She is also on the taller end and her height is 75%. In typical Mabel fashion, she greeted the dr and nurses (and everyone in the waiting room) with waves and high fives and only cried for a second when she got a shot. I checked Jeremy's baby book and although Mabel weighed more than him up until now, she doesn't anymore. He weighed 29 lbs but they are the same % now.
What does this mean....Jeremy and Mabel are made of my stock and Amelia is a "tiny Meiny" like her cousins Beck and Nellie (and her dad and uncle)!
