Double the fun!

So Carter and Megan were both due for checkups this month, so we thought we might as well have their appointments back to back and get it over with. It actually wasn't that bad.
Meg had her four month checkup. She hated the shots, of course, but calmed down soon enough. Other than that she was great!! She weighed in at 17 lbs. 10 oz. which basically puts her off the charts!!! That's right . . . almost 18 lbs!! We are so proud!! We love it. She is also 25 in. in height, which is in the 75 percentile. My baby is big!
Carter had his 3 year checkup and weighed in at 32 lbs. which is in the 60th percentile, and he was 27 in. in height,which is about the 25th percentile. He took his shots like a champ! He only flinched a little on the SECOND shot. I'm telling you, he is one tough kid. Why I'm surprised I don't know. We're talking about a kid who never let on that he had a broken hand last year.
The appointments went smoothly, although it took forever to get done with. Their appointments were set for 10:15 and we didn't get out till 12. Man. I was glad I had Bo with me.
The only setback from the whole experience was that for about half of the next day Carter could hardly walk on his leg, the poor kiddo. For most of the morning he made us carry him around. It was heart breaking. Of course by the afternoon he was back to jumping all over the place, so we aren't too concerned anymore.
