Double doctor duty

Meadow and Emerson had Doctors apt. this week and had shots.
At the same time.
Not fun.
Meadow was upset from the very beginning. She did not want anyone taking her temperature or measuring her or weighing her. As soon as we got into the exam room she started screaming bloody murder because I guess she didn't like being in the little room. She quieted down a little when the Doctor came in but started screaming again when she was getting examined. This was all BEFORE the shots. The only one who was unaffected by the screaming toddler was the
Emerson on the other hand laughed when the doctor examined him and only cried after the actual shots, which he got four of. Meadow was so upset after her one shot I had to sit with her in the car. Needless to say we had a very enlightening experience.

On the brighter side the doctor was impressed with Meadows vocabulary and the use of four to five word sentences, and her recognition of colors and numbers. We also found out that Emerson's weight is in the 75th-90th percentile! He weighed in at 18lbs 3.5oz and Meadow at 28lbs. Emerson is huge! BTW he was only 50th percentile for height which is right on the money for average, so think thick long torso and stubby little legs. We also got the okay to start on rice cereal and baby food for Emerson.
So that is just an update on the kiddos!
