3-Year and 1-Year Checkups

With their birthdays quickly approaching, it was time for JJ and Wesley to visit the pediatrician for a checkup.  We scheduled the appointments together for efficiency's sake, but it ended up being a little challenging to keep both kids well-behaved while the doctor was examining them.

They both got a clean bill of health.  Wesley was due for some vaccines but because of an annoyingly rigid school requirement (as in kindergarten, yes - over 4 years away!) if he got the vaccines 5 days before his birthday they wouldn't "count."  So much for trying to be efficient with our doctor visits!  We'll head back in a couple days for those vaccines.

Here are the kids' stats:
Height - 38" (75th percentile)
Weight - 33.5 lbs (~50th percentile)

(Photo of JJ at the appointment, donning the exam gown)

Height - 30.5" (75th percentile)
Weight - 21 lbs 10 oz (50-75th percentile)
Head circumference - 48.3 cm (90th percentile)

(I didn't get a photo of Wesley at the doctor so here's a recent shot.)

We are looking forward to a fun birthday week ahead!!
