Rachel’s Doctor’s Appointment

Rachel had a really good doctor’s appointment today. She is in excellent health, and she was pretty cooperative too. Her vital statistics are as follows:

Weight: 30 lbs. 4 oz. (85th percentile)
Height: 35 inches (80th percentile)
Head Circumference: 19 inches (75th percentile)

So she’s pretty well balanced.

She didn’t get any shots today. I was surprised. I thought she had them coming today, but she is not due for anything until she’s 4. She doesn’t realize it, but she is very happy about that. She did get a finger stick to check her hemoglobin (which is fine). I indicated that she can be kind of a picky eater, so they wanted to make sure she was getting enough iron, which she is. She was fine with the finger stick, but about halfway through the process of getting the blood she started to realize that it was uncomfortable. But all was well in the end as she got a sticker and a lollipop.

  1. She got a finger stick and no lollipop? That's what Nicholas and Michael look forward to at the doctor when they get any kind of pricks!
