18 Month WCC

Layla and Jenna recently celebrated their half birthday, which means it's time for their 18 month well child checkup with Dr. Stacy.  I hear that at some point around this age, children dread going to the doctor because they remember it as the place they get shots.  We're not at that point yet...as you can see they were in fabulous moods this morning and happy to go!  

Come on sis, let's go see Dr. Stacy!

Once we checked in, we had only a short wait.  The girls didn't mind since there are lots of fun things to do in the waiting area.

Layla: "Hey, sis!  Come check out the tree!"

Jenna: "Sorry, I can't.  I'm busy talking to the fish."

Layla: "Hey, Mr. Alligator, how do I get all that money out of your belly?"

Jenna: "Maybe you just have to give him a good shake."

Layla: "Ooh, look at the shiny rocks!"

Jenna: "Okay, I'm starting to get a little bit nervous."

It's okay, Jenna.  We're only taking measurements right now.  Jenna measured at 33.25" long (88%) and had a head circumference of 18.25" (52%)

Layla measured at 32.75" long (77%) and had a head circumference of 17.5" (9%).

Jenna: "Is it bad?"  No, Jenna...it's VERY healthy!  She weighed in at 26 pounds and 4 ounces (89%)!

Layla: "What's it say, what's it say?!?!"  Layla weighed in at 21 pounds and 8 ounces (37%).  

Now for their favorite part...paper and mirror time!

Notice how Daddy had to take down the picture that was hanging on the wall...sometimes we get a little too curious!

Overall, Layla and Jenna's checkup was perfect.  They are growing like weeds and right on track developmentally.  The girls each got two shots and shed only a few tears.  We aren't due back to visit Dr. Stacy again until they are 2 years old!  I can't believe they are going to let me take them home without checking on me for 6 whole months!  I'm sure the time will fly!
