3 Year Check Up

How different this appointment was versus the other well checks. Instead of chasing the kids around the waiting room, they sweetly sat and read books. Maybe because there was the promise of ice cream if they were good at the appointment.
 


This appointment was also different because they started measuring blood pressure with the cutest little cuff I've ever seen. Dr. G asked who was first and Addie was quick to say "Austin first."

Austin weighed in at 29 lbs, 8 oz (32th percentile) and is 36.5 inches tall (26th percentile). His BP is 109/69 and his pulse is 116. Dr. G gave Austin an A+ and noticed he is quite the busy boy!

Addie weighed in at 25 lbs, 2 oz (still not on the growth chart but gained 4 lbs since last year!) and is 35.3 inches tall (14th percentile). Dr. G said that Addie is awesome and also very active.

Dr. G went through some tests with them, including one where he asked them to jump. Not only did Addie jump, she twirled, spun and face planted. She popped back up with a "ta da." Never a dull moment with that girl. He also went through shapes and colors. Our kids may not be 100% on colors but they can tell you the Yo Gabba Gabba character associated with it. That skill should take them far in life.

This appointment was great - no shots and followed up with stickers and lollipops! We'll head back in a year!
