We had Cameron's one year check up this morning. After a rough first six months of life where I felt like we were in there every other week, we have only had one sick visit since his 6 month checkup and none since his 9 month. Can you say GO TUBES!!!!! He beat out Cooper in both weight and height. He is 20 lbs 5 oz (25th %) and 29 1/2 inches (48th %). Cooper was just under 20 lbs and was only 27 inches. I honestly don't think he is two inches taller. According to their charts he grew from being in the 10th to 48th % in height. Everything checkout out great! We were there for almost two hours, it took about two minutes to produce this in the car. The cutest thing happened. I had prepared Cooper he may get a shot if they had their flu shot in. They did have it and she was afraid once they have the first confirmed case people will be flooding their office and they may run out. We have been listening to a video from Sid the Science Kid about getting your flu shot, it's super cute if you want to you tube it. He sat on my lap and did great. Barely flinched. Then it was Cameron's turn. He got 4 shots all together. After the first he let out a huge scream, I look over at Cooper and he starts crying. He didn't even as much as whine with his yet starts bawling during Cameron's. How adorable is that?
After today's visit I do have a huge decision to make. We love our doctor, I can't say enough good things about her, however one of these days enough has to be enough. I try my best to schedule their visits around nap times but when you wait half an hour in the lobby and another half hour in the exam room before even seeing the doctor you can't schedule it around anything. Our appointment was at 9:30, I should have been the third appointment this morning and we still didn't leave until almost 11:30. Steve had a dentist appointment in Charlestown at 10:15 and still made it home before us. It happens every time we have an appointment. With Cooper now in preschool I can't make a doctor's appointment an all day adventure. I was ready to walk out the door and then Dr Howell came in and it was a great visit. I'm going to think about it and pray for a few days before I make my decision.
