Doctor visits

Both kids had their doctor appointments today--Micah's 6 month and Chloe's 3 year. I did not manage to take any pictures....but here are their stats:

Height: 37 inches (50th percentile)
Weight 33 pounds (75th percentile)

Height: 27 3/4 inches (85th percentile)
Weight: 20 pounds, 10 ounces (88th percentile)

Yes, Micah is only 10 inches shorter than his sister who is 2 1/2 years older than him! Pretty soon he will be taller than her!! He already eats more than her, so it is only a matter of time.

Both kids dropped in their height percentiles, making them in a higher percentile for weight than height. I was concerned because Chloe's pediatrician she had when she was a baby said that is a warning sign of obesity. Dr. Chou (our pediatrician now) said not to worry. Kids weights are like stocks, he said, that have peaks of growth and straighten out at other times. He said both kids look healthy, and are healthy. woo hoo!!!

Micah got more immunizations and the first half of his flu shot. Chloe told everyone that she saw that she did not want to get a shot, and we all reassured her that she was not going to get any. She was a big helper with Micah getting his shots, and she put his band aids on for him.
