2 Year Stats

Anderson finally made it to the doctor for his 2 year checkup...he's growing and still little:)

Weight - 26.5 pounds, 30th percentile
Length - 32.5 inches, 10th percentile (has finally moved up from the 5th percentile!)

We had a new doctor and loved him! The kids have been playing 'Dr. Chip' at the house.

Anderson had been schedule to go to the doctor a week earlier, but because of some scheduling with the babysitter, we moved the appointment. When I called to move it, I was disappointed to learn that both of our 2 favorite docs at the practice were out the day we needed to go. Of the 2 that were available, I knew I did not want one of them, so booked the other. I figured that since it was just a checkup and we didn't have any concerns, it would be fine. What a pleasant surprise to have such a great doctor. The only downside is that he's not usually in the office we go to. I'm a little concerned that Owen is going to be disappointed when we go in a few weeks for his checkup.

Dr. Chip came in and immediately made both kids comfortable. He juggled medicine cups, made a catapult with them and a tongue depressor, stacked the cups and knocked them together. Much of what he was doing was a fun way to do the 2 year autism screen to see Anderson's reaction and if he copied etc. He let Owen try out the light thingy (don't know what it's called, but the thing they look in ears/eyes with).

I'm so thankful that Anderson is healthy and growing!

We've had Dr. Chip before, too. What a great doctor!
