4 year and 2 1/2 year checkups

Last night we had the kids' checkups.  I thought it would be pretty easy since nobody needed shots and they love our pediatrician.  Shortly after we got there I found out that the shots Kyla was going to get at 5 years old, they wanted to give her at 4 years instead.  So she was going to be getting 3 shots.  One of which is the second (and last) of the MMR so with the measles scare, they are doing them at 4 instead.  I was glad she'd get them over with, but I wasn't feeling well, it was 95 degrees in the room and I really didn't want to ruin her happy mood.

Kase has been going through a shy stage so he sat with his eyes covered and as soon as the doctor started his checkup, he freaked out.  He did not want her touching him, talking to him or looking at him.  I remembered I had some graham crackers in my purse and you'd think they were magic.  He was happy, but was also done with his checkup so maybe that had something to do with it.

Kyla is 3'6" (89th percentile) and weighs 42 lbs (90th percentile).  She passed the hearing test with flying colors, but unfortunately failed the vision screen.  I'm hoping it was just a fluke, but either way, we have an appointment next week with an eye doctor.  It wouldn't surprise me if she does have bad eyes because mine are horrible.

Kase is 37" (81st percentile) and weighs 34 lbs (92nd percentile).  He is behind with his language, which Kyla always was too.  It was around this age that her language really took off and now we are amazed that we were ever concerned.  So I'm not overly worried about Kase, but it's free to have someone come out to the house and evaluate him, so we are taking advantage of that.  A lady is coming tomorrow to meet with me and go over everything.  And then hopefully they can come back soon after for the evaluation.  I'd love to get that done and see if he does indeed need to be in the program before I have the baby.

I need to do a whole post just on Kase because this boy is a handful right now!  I just don't have the energy right now.  Plus I should probably go get him off of the TV stand!
