I took The Little Sis to The Pediatrician on Thursday for her two-year well check, and everything checked out great!
*Weight: 30 pounds (90th to 95th percentile)
*Height: 35.5 inches (90th to 95th percentile)
*Head circumference: 19 inches (50th to 75th percentile)
She met all of her milestone questions, which were:
*Can your child walk up stairs?
*Can your child stack at least 4 blocks?
*Does your child point to pictures in books?
*Does you child attempt to remove some clothing?
*Does your child use at least two-word sentences?
*Does your child say more than 40 words?
The unusual thing with this appointment is that as soon as they called us back, before we were even through the doorway, The Little Sis started crying and clinging to me — she has never done that before! They tried to weigh and measure her on the real scale, but I couldn’t get her away from me long enough to get an accurate reading. So we had to weigh her on the baby scale (which she didn’t like either) and measure her height on the exam table paper (which, again, she didn’t like).
Thankfully The Pediatrician is understanding in situations like this, and he did as much of his exam as he could with her sitting on my lap and needed her on the exam table for less than two minutes. In addition, the nurse was willing to give her the one shot she needed with her sitting in my lap, which I would have requested anyway and they’ve always let us do when possible, but it was especially helpful since she was already displeased with being there. She calmed down quickly after the shot and was fine the entire way to daycare.
So now we’re caught up on shots until age 4! (Though, those four-year shots were rough with The Big Sis! But we’ll deal with that when we get to it.)
It’s hard to believe she’s already two, but she’s at such a fun age and we’re enjoying her personality so much.
