Well-Visits - Four Years Old and Two Years Old

Catherine Ellis and Caroline both had their well-visits in May!  Catherine Ellis for her four-year and Caroline for her two-year.  They've gotten to be such pros at visiting the doctor and both love Dr. Farr.  He's the baby whisperer fo' sho!

Caroline is big enough how to be measured for her height on the wall and can step on the digital scale all by herself - where does the time go?!?  No more baby scale weight and height for this one!  As you can see she was very curious about how they were going to measure her!

Caroline's two-year-old stats are ... drumroll please.....:

Height: 33 1/2 inches - 50th percentile - we moved up from the 25th percentile - go Caroline!!

Weight: 31.2 lbs - 90th percentile - apple doesn't fall too far from the tree, sweet girl!

Catherine Ellis has been standing on the scale for weight and against the wall for height for a few years now, but the big difference in this visit was that she could comprehend every thing they were saying/asking - the questions they asked to see how she was developing - lots of hopping on one leg, skipping, balancing (following commands) and she just couldn't wait to see Dr. Farr.

Catherine Ellis's four-year-old stats are.... drumroll please....:

Height: 40.75 - 90th percentile (obviously she gets this from her 5 ft 5 mama, ha!  All daddy here!)

Weight: 38 lbs - 90th percentile 

Catherine Ellis is long and lean - I was surprised that she weighed as much as she did, but it's her height that contributes to her weight.  I hope she's tall like her Daddy and plays women's basketball since her Daddy loves it SO much (I kid, I kid; he strongly dislikes women's basketball).

We then preceded to tear the room to shreds waiting on Dr. Farr to make his appearance - bless that staff for cleaning up after us!

Washing hands - we did this about 25 times!  Little has to do everything Big does!

We always have such a great view - counting all the cars as they whiz by!

Who could this be?

While we were playing our little hearts out I should have been preparing my "don't miss a thing, I must know everything that is about to happen" four-year-old for the FOUR shots she was going to receive.  Ugh.  Mom of the Year right here.  I went into this appointment thinking that Catherine Ellis was done with shots until next year and boy was I wrong.  She got four big ole' shots and Caroline got two.  Let's just say the shots didn't go over well at all.  Catherine Ellis was mad as fire at me for not telling her - but we hung in there and I had two screaming and crying babies within seconds (I now know why Dr. Farr said when he realized David wasn't coming "Smart guy that one!").  So we left the office not being able to walk - because when you're four shots paralyze you.  We made it to car and I promised ice cream - we went from this:

To this - a much better mood in minutes - thank you Micky D's drive-thru:

We are SO very thankful for our healthy babies - God is so good!  May they both continue to grow, develop and prosper!
