Of finger pricks and shots

On Monday I hauled my little no-neck-monster's down to Tallahassee for a visit with our beloved Pediatrician for their 3 year check up. They were measured and weighed as usual. But this time we added having their blood pressure checked, their fingers pricked( to which they didn't shed a tear!), their eye sight and hearing tested and they got to urinate in a cup. Well James did, he thought it was cool. I had to bring Audrey's cup home with us and am waiting for the right moment to collect! They can see and hear! It was hysterical watching them hop around the nurse's station in their skivvies like such big kids. They also had to get 2 shots, each. That was not well received. At all.



James:
Weight: 27 1/2 lbs
Height: 35 inches



Audrey:
Weight: 27 1/2 lbs
Height: 36 inches

And no, their weight isn't wrong. The nurse weighed James twice to be sure! They both checked out great. Even thought they are small for their age, they are right on target for their growth pattern and growing nicely. Not that I was concerned but it's always nice to hear that they are strong and healthy. It's also time for them to go to the dentist so I will be making that appointment in the near future. I'm not sure how that's gonna go. But I do know I will NOT be going to that doctor's appointment by myself. I may be brave but I ain't stupid!!

Those pictures are so perfect for this post! It's amazing that they weigh the exact same thing. Still 2 peas in a pod.
Love and MISS!

They surely are practically clones, physically speaking. Their personalities, on the other hand...LOVE James' expression on the ropes. I can't imagine ANYthing being irregular or off-kilter in their development...not with their vocabulary, their energy, their intelligence!

You probly tired of hearin it- but you really DO have a gift of reporting and photoging. You really could be a novelist. This is wonderful.

Cute pics, cute kiddos! As far as the dentist goes, South Pediatric Dentistry in Valdosta is great! Beautiful murals on the walls and tvs in the ceiling with headphones! My girls love going and Becca did great last time and they did a full cleaning on her! We have seen both docs and they are great. Valdosta is a drive but well worth it!

Either way they are beautiful pictures, so expressive, so like James and Audrey.

I'll keep that in mind Beth, thanks! There is a pediatric dentist in Tallahassee that we will try first though, since it's closer!

Thanks Ms. Sue, I told y'all I can be extremely detail oriented and this is where it pays off, I reckon!!

And daddy, I took those pictures. But it's sweet of you to think that maybe Jon did!!
