My boys are growing!!

Earlier this month Bennett had his 4 year well check.  He has grown a lot in the past year!  The appointment was really long and not fun for Bennett!  He had to do a vision and hearing test.  He did fine during the vision part and followed the nurses directions.  Once we went in to do the hearing test he was losing interest and would raise his hand when he heard the beep about every third beep.  I know Bennett can hear, he actually had a hearing test at school and passed.  His attention span at this point in the appointment was wandering.  They said it is normal at this age for them to not do the entire hearing test and we can try again next year!

I had prepared him for the fact he had to get shots at his appointment, but I never mentioned that the doctor would have to examine him first.  He was not a happy camper when the doctor examined him.  Then the nurse came in to give him his shots and he didn't even flinch.  I guess you never know what to expect from a 4 year old because I expected him to be upset with the shots and not the examination.

Here are Bennett's stats:
Weight: 41 lbs 85%
Height: 40 3/4 in 61%

Walker had his 18 month well check this week.  He has grown almost 3 inches in 3 months!  He is finally evening out on his height/weight ratio.  His appointment was really easy because this check up required no shots!!  We got in and out pain free and Walker thought it was all fun and games!

Here are Walker's stats:
Weight: 27.4 lbs 87%
Height: 33 in 71%

His height percentage at 15 months was 25% so he has really grown!

We are really lucky to have two such healthy boys.
