Doctor appointments

Graydon had a weight check. Normally, he shouldn't have to go back for a check-up until he turns three. But our little guy is a little guy and they want to monitor his weight. Unfortunately, he didn't gain any weight. In fact, he actually lost half a pound. I'm pretty sure that the weight loss was due to a stomach bug that he had last week and the subsequent loss of appetite that followed it. Still, we have to bring him back again in one month. If he fails to gain weight, then they're going to have to run a bunch of tests. I'm thinking that Andy should be at the next appointment. That way the docs can see the gene pool that we're working with here. Operation Beef-up Graydon has officially begun!

On another note, it turns out that Graydon has an infection in his left ear. That definitely explains a lot of the crankiness this week. He has been a bear. Amoxicillin to the rescue.

Curtis had a regular check-up. His stats are:

Weight: 19 lbs. 1 oz. (25th percentile)
Height: 29 and 1/8 inches (75-90th percentile)
Head circumference: 18.5 inches (90th percentile)

So it really is Curtis's big head that makes him look like a big baby. As you can see by his percentages, he is not tipping the scales too high either. But he is very healthy and developing just as he should. Two shots later (polio and hepatitis B) and we were out of there.

LOL...yes bringing Andy may shed some light with the doctors. He's going to be skinny like his dad.
