Doctor's Appointment

K.'s 2 year check up was this afternoon. I was a little nervous because it was just her and I, and she doesn't like to sit for long periods of time (what 2 year old does?!). I packed plenty of books and toys, but luckily we didn't have to wait for long. We were pleasantly surprised when H. came in (he took a late lunch), and he sat with her until she was called back to see the doctor.

She is officially tall for her age (I KNEW IT! lol), at 35" (80th percentile), and she weighs 27 lbs 8 oz (60th percentile). She sat quietly while the doctor looked her over and didn't complain at all. We had to go to a different building so she could get blood work done and I was nervous the entire way. She didn't seem to care (obviously didn't know what was going on!), and just wanted to play in the chairs.

After chasing her down a long hallway (the lab was in the same administration building that H. works in) while she was yelling DADDY!!! the entire way, the tech called us back. K. squirmed for a little while because I was holding her, yelled stuck!!! a few times, then quieted down. She watched with interest as the woman tied a rubber band around her arm and looked for a vein.

And the most amazing part?? She didn't even cry. She didn't jerk around, she didn't try to get down, and she didn't scream. She just sat there and watched as her blood was being drawn. I am extremely proud of her.
