Today was an intense doctor day.
G had her two year old well child checkup. She moved from the 50% on weight and height to the 75% for weight and 90% for height during the past six months. Two immunization shots and two vials of blood for bloodwork made for lots of crying and screaming of 'All done!'
I was scheduled for my dentist trip for two fillings. Because of the extra blood work, I didn't arrive until 10:50am. Hubby met me with S to pick up G. Two hour dental visit. That's two hours of holding my mouth open wide for a short little Filipino dentist who is 38 weeks pregnant. I swear she drilled for 40 minutes. At one point, with tears in my eyes, I asked her how much longer. She said ten minutes. I asked if it was really only ten or was it similar to the ten minutes an obstetrician would tell you about. She smiled. My jaw ached. My mouth was numb. I needed a drink.
I arrived home to quickly but carefully eat a grilled cheese sandwich.
S had her four year well child checkup. She's healthy but in need of a more thorough vision check. She measured 20/30 in her left eye. That eye also seems to be a bit 'lazy'. Hmmm. Four immunizations.
Needless to say, I am tired. It's 7:30pm. I think I'm going to bed.
But before I do, some interesting stats...
J at 24 months:
weight: 24 pounds 1 ounce
height: 32.5 inches
S at 25 months:
weight: 25 pounds
height: 34 inches
G at 24 months:
weight: 28 pounds 5 ounces
height: 35.5 inches
There are two methods my doc uses to determine projected height.
Method 1: Double height at second birthday.
Method 2: Add mother's height and father's height. Add five inches for males or subtract five inches for females. Divide by two.
So in a nutshell...
J will be five foot five.
S will be five foot eight.
G will be five foot eleven.
All girls would measure five foot eight.
Any of my loyal readers have predictions about which will be true?
P.S. In the process of getting ready for a bath, I discovered one of G's rewards. A lovely sticker of Patrick, stuck in my ... wait for it ... armpit. Good times.
