Catching Up With the Boys

Bug, Cat, and I made our way to our pediatrician's office yesterday for Bug's 2.5 year and Cat's 9 month appointment.  I can't believe that my big boy is 2 and a half, and my baby is almost a year old!  Sheesh!  Where does the time go?

Highlights from the trip:

-Bug now stands at 40.5 inches tall and weighs 38 lbs.  His height, weight, and head circumference now have their own curves on the growth chart.

-Cat is now 30.5 inches tall and weighs 22 lbs, 2 oz.  Definitely not suffering anymore:)

-Bug got his MMR (we delay our vaccinations, this was the last one he needed, and it was awful.  Simply awful.  I guess it stings pretty bad and the look of hurt and betrayal on his face was heartbreaking.  He wound up with a welt the size of Africa on his leg; thankfully it went down by bedtime but I could barely look at it.

-Cat, not to be outdone, got his final Hepatitis B shot and screamed just as long and loudly as his brother.  Plus they did the finger prick to check his iron and let me just say there was blood everywhere.  Ugh.

However, I have two healthy, happy boys who are developing and growing just fine, so what more can I ask for?:)

On the potty training front, we are doing fabulously!  I plan on writing a retrospective of that next week.  Until then, Happy Friday!
