A double dose of doctor's appointments

Today Brant and Henry had their 7 year old and 15 month checkups, respectively.  

Let's start with Brant.  Well, nurses and doctor alike (who we LOVE!!) couldn't believe how tall he was!  51 3/4 inches and 62 lbs.  His percentile chart has always been in perfect proportion, except for the one time chunk out he had at 6-9 months.  Losing teeth left and right, the doctor commented that he was as big as some 4th graders!  All was good for him, and he was especially glad that he didn't have to get any shots, for two more years, at that! 

Henry also grew a lot. He grew 3 inches and is now 30 1/4 inches long.  He weighs 22lbs and 8 oz.  His  head is 47.8 cm.  He's been more at the bottom of the percentile charts, as Brant always topped them out.  He's almost caught up with Brant in height, for the age, but it will be interesting to see how he grows, tall or short...O'Day or Tobin?

Henry had to get 3 shots.  Other than a "what the heck did you do to me?" look and a squawk, he didn't make a sound.  Daddy said his name should be "tough cookie!"   He even walked out the room, down the hall and smiled at all the nurses. 

So thankful we have a doctor we love and trust and healthy, happy boys.  Shoot, when the doctor just laughs at your boys roughhousing in the exam room, you know you have a lot to be thankful for!
