Four Year (and Four Months) Stats

So... like back in May Henry turned four, right? And I was apparently suppose to get him to the doctor for that four year well child check. And I REALLY meant to get right on it... but we were changing doctors due to an insurance change, and it seemed harmless to wait for that to happen (July 1st). So we waited...

and then I just kinda forgot about it.


That was, until we got a nice letter from daycare saying that since his vaccines were not up to date, they would politely have to request his absence until that was rectified.


So we went to the doctor today!  The timing was actually terrible, with work for both Nick and I being crazy busy this week, but you gotta do what you gotta do.  Henry's Nana was awesome and said she would keep him after his appointment so he didn't have to go to school.  He was pretty upset about the need for shots, but good old bribery worked wonders and he was VERY BRAVE.  It was adorable... and absolutely broke my heart when he got the shots.  Lucky for all of us, he is done with vaccines until the 6th grade... MY HEART CAN'T TAKE IT.

Everything with the appointment went great.  Since we are so delayed with this check up, they were able to go ahead and do his kindergarten readiness exam as well!  So...SCORE FOR PUTTING THINGS OFF!  Turns out he can hear, he can see, he has excellent balance and knows all kinds of stuff.  He also is a ham, and we had to keep telling him to "try his best" so he wasn't acting silly and pretending to fall when he was suppose to walk in a straight line... Sorry to his future teachers...he is a clown.

Anyway, just to keep records for my online baby book, here are his stats:

Weight: 34 pounds - 25th percentile

Height 42 inches - 75th percentile
My boy sure is growing up.

Same basket... three years ago.  Feels like maybe last month.

  1. love that basket so you can see the full growth - I should do something like that if I can find something they used to sit in or on :)
