4 and 5 year old well-checks

Yesterday, Xavier and Bennett had their 4 and 5 year old well-checks with their pediatrician. Yes, a little late, I know, but our doctor books up quickly, and when I called to make the appointments in March, she was already scheduling out to the middle of June.

Here are the stats:
Bennett: 35 lbs (50%) and 39" (30%) The doctor remarked that he's definitely not overweight even though his weight is a greater percentile than his height...he's just muscular. Agreed!

Xavier: 33.5 lbs (3%) and 41" (10%) Long and skinny. No change from previous measurements. Even though he's thin, he's not underweight, and is following his growth curve, so that's the important thing.

Here's Xavier waiting patiently for the doctor to come in. He loves to lay on the exam table and kick at the paper and make a crinkly sound. It makes him giggle.


And here are Ben and Nick, reading a Dr. Seuss book to pass the time.


Our doctor declared both my little loves healthy! And then the boys got 4 vaccinations. They both hated it, but got over it fairly quickly (they moved on with other things within a minute). Its unbelievable to think they got their "Kindergarten booster shots". They're growing up so fast. Crazy.

They both look so cute. Did either of them care about wearing the smocks that close in the back? I know I do!!! :)

It's hard to believe that you have 4 and 5 year olds. It's must be really hard for you to believe that Xavier will be in Kindergarten this Fall...crazy.
