Wow, they are really growing

Yesterday we went to the doctor for Michael's 3 year well visit and Katie's 2 month well visit. Both appointments went very good.

Everything looks good with Michael. This was the first visit that he had to give a urine sample and get his finger pricked for a little blood. He had his cholesterol tested and it was excellent. Todd was able to get the urine sample from him easily, even though he must have really had to go because the cup almost overflowed! I wonder how they get a urine sample if your child isn't potty trained....squeeze the diaper?

He is now 38 inches tall and weighs 33 lbs. He has grown 4 inches in the past year and gained 5 lbs. He is in the 75th percentile for height and the 50th percentile for weight. The height is not surprising, given how tall Todd is. He is growing well and turning into quite the little man.

Katie's appointment went just as well. She now weighs 11 lbs 2 oz, up from her birth weight of 7 lbs 8.8oz. She is in the 50th percentile for weight and height. She is growing well and the doctor even remarked that she has good head & neck control. I can't believe how big she has gotten since she was born. I saw a newborn this week and Katie looked huge next to her. We will have her next appointment at 4 months.
