I love these wellness visits - yes, even the ones that require vaccines - as it's confirmation that we are doing something right! It doesn't matter if he's 2 months old, 2 years old or now FIVE, hearing from the nurse & doctor, who we ADORE, that we are all on the right track is music to my ears!!!
It's interesting to go to these appointments because it's no longer about the parent. We are now just spectators watching the dialog between Austin and his nurse/Dr. It makes me smile that he's now an independent, growing lil boy answering all sorts of questions on his own.
Here are his stats:
Height: 43 1/8 in (50%) -- staying steady there
Weight: 37.8 lbs (10$%) -- again staying steady on his growth chart
It's funny. Before he was walking, he was 90th in weight and 10% in height and I'd joke that he was round and short. Now he's tall and lanky!
He passed his eye chart and both eyes are 20/30. Blood pressure: 88/58 with a pulse of 92.
He doesn't get an more immunizations until he's 12, so Austin was excited to hear about that. HaHa
