It Only Comes But Once a Year

A big convenience of having daughters with birthdays so close is that they get to go to their yearly doctor check-ups together. Today, Summer had her 4 year check-up, and Camryn had her 3 year check-up.

Summer is 40 lbs and 41 1/2 inches tall. Camryn is 26 lbs and 36 inches tall. Summer is above average for height and weight, Camryn is below. No surprise there!

They both got the thumbs up from the doctor on their development, physically and mentally. No surprise there, either! How blessed are we, to have two little girls that are so smart and so healthy.

Summer had a hearing test done, and most of her hearing seemed perfect. There was one section of the test that she didn't get a great score. Her doctor had her go back and do a different kind of test that came back normal, so he thinks that it may be fluid in her ear due to congestion. We're going to take her back in a couple months to do another test to make sure, but most likely it's nothing.

Camryn got a finger prick and a shot in her thigh. She did amazing… not a tear. Summer had to get 4 shots, two in each arm. Shots in the upper arm seem to always be the most painful, so we had some tears. She did great though.

After we left, the girls deserved a treat for being so good, so we headed to Dairy Queen. They got their first-ever hot fudge sundaes. There is nothing better, after a morning of being poked and prodded, than ice cream!IMG_0273editIMG_0281editIMG_0280editIMG_0279edit

So glad to hear that they're doing so good! I think they deserved that icecream after such a great doctor visit! :)

So that's where that blizzard came from :) I love when we get to benefit at the same time!

I hate shots - hate taking my kids for them especially the finger pricks. I think those are worse than shots.

Yummy ice cream. It looks like they enjoyed it. WTG Summer and Camryn. BTW Logan is weighs more then Camryn lol Maybe that's a bad thing on my part since he is only 14 months old.

Sounds like they did pretty great with their shots and such!!

A hot fudge sundae is a great treat!

It's so relieving to have healthy children! You're very blessed indeed! So funny how your youngest sounds just like mine. Being more brave at the fair than Summer was, being the smaller of the two in percentiles and such. Yup Bryn is the same so far. ;)

Yay for two adorable and healthy little girls!! I know they are glad for no more shots for a while.
