Ryan's Two Year & Owen's 4 Month Well Visits

Post to Twitter .

Ryan had his two year well check today and Owen had his 4 month well check today. It was absolutely insane having two doctor visits at one time for two different kiddos. I thought it would be easier to do it all at once, but I’m going to rethink that next time.

Ryan was 27 pounds and 4 ounces and 135 cm in height. He was in the 75th percentile for height, but only about 46th for weight. He has consistantly dropped on the weight chart and the doctor is very slightly concerned. She doesn’t think it’s anything to be alarmed about since he’s just a very active kid who burns so much energy and calories and he is still on the charts and doing well. She just wants us to come back in 4 months for a weight check rather than waiting an entire year for his next well visit. I can’t imagine we would make it an entire year without any sick visits anyway; we seem to be there several times a month. The alarming part for mommy was on the check-out form it’s coded as “failure to thrive”…. really?! Do they need to code it as that?! This would fall into the same category as “your child is in a downward spiral” right Malinda??? Do you need to tell a parent that?

Owen was 18 lbs. 1 oz and is in the 97th percentile for weight. He is 25 1/2 inches tall and I can’t remember the percentile for height, but it was up there in the 75th plus. He is our tank! He is quickly outgrowing his 6 month clothes and while 9 month is still a little big, they fit. He does have a few “rolls” on him, but really he is well proportioned and just a big boy.

Ryan got his finger pricked and boy was he mad. He didn’t really cry, but he scrunched up his forehead and looked at the nurse as if to say “that was mean!” and then he just sat on daddy’s lap with a pouty lip. Throughout the day he would bring his finger to mommy and say “Ryan boo-boo” and want me to kiss it.

Owen had to get 4 shots and he was beyond mad. He SCREAMED! He did not like that at all and was really upset. Everytime I would set him down to get him dressed or put him in his carseat the tears would start all over again. This kid holds a grudge. Boy was he upset with everyone involved in holding him down and sticking him with needles. Daddy is still on his good side since he was busy with Ryan and didn’t participate in these actions.

Owen did come home with a nebulizer (sp?) for RSV which he has to use 4 times per day for 2 weeks. Let the fun begin! Ryan hated this treatment when he was on it last year.

Overall though, both boys are doing great! We certainly can’t complain!
