Well Visits

Reese had her 2.5 year well visit today with the pediatrician. She did so well considering she received two shots. I had only planned on her getting one but there was one that hadn't been available for a while and they finally had it. She obviously wasn't happy about these shots but she was excited to get a toy out of the treasure chest! She chose bubbles. Today she weighed 33.4 lbs (91%) and is 36 1/4" tall (71%). Since Reese turned two she has gained one pound and grown 2.5 inches. She is reaching (more like exceeding) all of her milestones. The doctor said, "By the time she is three you should be able to understand 75% of what she is saying and she should be putting 3 and 4 word sentences together." I just giggled when she said that! She obviously isn't around Reese much! LOL! As we were leaving, Reese was telling me something and the lady behind the desk said, "I bet she is a chatterbox!" All I said after a laugh was, "Always!" The girl doesn't stop talking...ever!

Sam had his 2 month well visit today. And boy is he still a growing machine!! He weighs 12.13 lbs (75%) and is 23 1/4" long (62%). That's right people...he has gained three pounds in one month...and five pounds since he was born. Poor guy still has a tiny head though! However, it is slowly but surely gaining size and percentages. Today it measured 15 1/4" (21%). He did not receive any vaccinations. I am doing the same revised schedule with him that I did with Reese so he will not get any shots until his 4 month well visit. He was such a sweet and happy baby today (until Reese was crying after her shots). He is smiling and interacting a good bit now. I just love when he gets excited about something.

Reese is still loving being a big sister. She occasionally has her moments but overall is a very good and helpful big sister.

This is what happens when you leave Daddy alone with the kids...
