Chase's Checkup

Hauled all 3 1/2 kids to the pediatrician's today for Chase's 2 year well check.  It was the first time he didn't cry through the entire appointment!  Thank heavens for small miracles.

He is:
31 inches (50%ile)
26lbs (75%ile- woot!)
45 1/4 cm head circumference (50%ile)

**all those %s are on the Ds chart

Everything looks good.  She's impressed with his walking.  He was happy and sociable and delightful (as he always is...riiight).  

I asked about sleep apnea, and she suggested we go ahead and do the sleep study, even though his snoring isn't terrible, we don't really notice him stop breathing, but he does tend to get tired during the day (still having trouble going from one nap to two) and he wakes up at least once a night still.  So, we're going to schedule that and see what happens.

She asked about his next eye exam, and I realized that I probably already missed that appointment, because I seem to remember booking that one close to his birthday.  Oops.  Guess I should call the opthamologist and check that out.

After the dr, I took all the kids to the park for a playdate with our Ds group.  No one slept in the car.  No one took a nap in the stroller, as I had hoped.  William didn't even fall asleep in the car on the way home.  I'm pretty sure I didn't give anyone caffiene this morning, but who knows?  Maybe Ian slipped the littles a cup of coffee while I was doing my hair before we left.  I'm exhausted enough for everyone.

I think Erin is 26 lbs. Why does she feel like a sack of bricks when Chase does not? :) Congrats on a good appt. Impressed that you hauled everyone with you. :)
