Girls, you did so well at your well-child check-ups this week. I was quite nervous going into it. I wasn’t sure which immunizations would be suggested and what all would happen at the appointment. (Next time, I’ll do my research, but I’m pretty sure that next year won’t be so good to you little sis).
We all answered the nurse’s and doctor’s questions together. You both separately went and got weighed and measured (#1 you are 50th percentile for weight and 75th for height. #2 you were 60th for both!) Girls you are getting so big and so grown up. You got into your gowns on your own. You (fairly) patiently waited for the doctor to come in and check your sister over.
You both had everything checked out, but you were most impressed and excited about the stethoscope. And, the doctor was super nice and let you play with it.
After all, you are telling us you want to be a doctor! I think you did a great job with your sister. So gentle and telling her what you were doing.
And, you silly girl, you wanted to listen to your belly and your back, just like the doctor did. And, of course, you gave me a super sassy look, too.
You got dressed again, and we waited for the nurse for your one shot each (yes, we decided to go ahead and get flu shots this year). #2, you volunteered to go first, and when the nurse did it, so said the cutest and saddest little “owww” and then it was over. #1, you gave me a look and then it was over. Neither one of you cried! You really impressed me.
Then, we got in the car, and headed off to get a treat. A “new drink” for each of you aka a slushy from the gas station and some Reese’s pieces.
It was probably our most successful well-child check-up to date. Thank you so much for super exceeding my expectations. You girls rock!
