We just got back from Mary's one month appointment and Henry's 3 year old appointment. It was a little hectic when we first got in there but it was kind of fun taking both of them at the same time. No, I didn't go at this by myself, Charlie came with us!
Henry was up first. He is weighing in around 32 pounds and is 40". He is rocking the charts for height. The doctor said he is closer to 4 year old height then 3 year old. Weight wise he was average. He also passed all the other tests that he had no idea he was being tested on. I love how they sneak them in there.
Mary was up next and waiting patiently on the table. I was holding breath when they went to weigh her, then when I saw what she weighed I was over joyed! She weighed in at 7 pound 12 ounces!!!! That is over 2 pounds in two weeks that she gained! She also grew an inch and a half! The doctor was very impressed with her one month stats. She is still in the low percent range but whatever, she is gaining!
We ended the appointment with her first shot. She screamed for a second and then was totally fine. I hate watching her get them and watching her face turn bright red.
We also discussed with the doctor Henry's behavior at school. We are doing the right things and she said it is really going to just take some time. All kids are different and some take longer to adjust then others. We just need to keep giving him positive reinforcement.
All in all a great appointment all around!
