Two Kids, One Appointment

Today the kids both had check ups at the doctors.....Cassandra had her 6 month visit, and Avery had her 3 year visit. 

And yes I'm crazy and took both kids to back-to-back appointments by myself.

I have to say-it was not bad at all. 

I knew going into it that Avery wouldn't be getting any shots, so that right there made the whole scenario easier to me. And the poor kid has been through so much this year that she's a pro at the docs now.

For the first time, Avery got on the big girl scale and they also did a vision and hearing test with her. She did a great job! 

Then we went into a room and Cassandra got her weight and length done. And then we waited for the doctor to come in.

He started with Cassandra first (per Avery's request). Currently she's 24 3/4" long (20th percentile) and she weighs 12lbs 13.5oz (8th percentile)....sister is still a little peanut!  Everything looks good with her and we got the green light to start her on solids!

Then it was Avery's turn.  She's currently 36 3/4" tall (40th percentile) and 28lbs (25th percentile).  She changed quite a bit. Last time they checked her she was in the 75th percentile for height and 10th for weight so she definitely has shifted on us, which is totally fine.  He confirmed with us that her sleep apnea appears to be gone (yay!) based on her second sleep study. We told him that we are starting her on some iron supplements to see if it helps anymore with the restless leg symptoms-he wasn't for or against it, but is anxious to see if it does help her with that. 

Overall, the appointment went really well and both girls are healthy as can be!  Avery doesn't have to go back for another year, but Cassandra will go back in 3 months!
