A Uneventful Check Up

Second Daughter had her 18 month check up yesterday and I'm pleased to report no one had to give blood, no one lost their sight and no one threw up! (See post on last visit, if you're not sure why that's so exciting.)

Her height was the same (31"), but I think that had more to do with the method of measuring. Last night they marked her head and feet on the paper on the table while this time she stood on the scale (my big girl). Her weight was 23 3/4 lb, which puts her at less than a pound gain in the last three months. I'm guessing it's either because she was sick recently and didn't eat as much or that she has a big growth spurt coming. Our PA wasn't worried. She scored very well on all the other measures and even sat quietly on my lap for most of the exam (though she was not a big fan). Our PA, who is wonderful, let First Son look at her eyes after he did and gave all of them a handful of stickers when we left.

Poor Second Daughter had one shot, but no more until she's four! Her next visit isn't until she's two in July so we should have a nice long stretch without well-child visits for any of the kids.
