Our pediatrician, Dr. Reyes, just moved to nice, new BIG facility. New office, another year older, I went all out and used the front door for the first time too! Dr. Reyes and his staff have always let us enter through the back door to bypass the waiting area and it’s germs. Now that they’re…gulp…3 years old I figured it was time to graduate to the front entrance ;) Baby steps, baby steps…. right fellow preemie moms?! Waiting for the fun to begin while practicing our 3 fingers!
Miss Amy came to check their weights and heights before we saw the doc. Love how Brody has his hands in his pockets as he stands like a big boy on the scale!
Their 3 year stats:
Brody: 30lbs (30th percentile) 37 1/2in (42nd percentile)
Baxlyn: 27lbs (13th percentile) 37in (40th percentile)
Kylee: 29lbs8oz (36th percentile) 38 1/4in (71st percentile). Her head circ. is still not on the chart, but is growing steadily at it’s own pace, which makes us all happy!
Korbin: Also 29lbs 8oz (25th percentile) 38in (55th percentile)
Like last year they had their hearing and vision tested. Looks like they’ll need to continue to follow up with Dr. Leffler, their ophthalmologist, but no major concerns! Baxlyn getting a good look at Korbin’s mouth with Dr. Reyes! Of course, our annual picture with Dr. Reyes!
Like last year, we’ve decided to hold off on a birthday party until spring time. After our appointment we met up with some of our BFFs, the Tew triplets and their big brother Britton at Chuck E Cheese. The place was nearly empty and both Bret & Chris were able to join Angela and I. Keeping up with 8 kids is way easier when you have two super dads! There was even a point where Angela and I were SITTING and watching for a change. She and I go out, with all of our children, almost weekly. Most of the time you’ll find us counting, running, counting again and wiping the sweat off of our brow surrounded by moms who sit on a bench, read a book and watch over their one kid. This was honestly the first time I’ve felt like one of those moms, being able to sit back and kind of relax for a brief minute while watching them play!
Brody riding his “fire truck”. He owned that thing the whole time we were there!
Sweet Kylee bowling for the first time. Never quite got it all the way up the lane, but she had a blast trying! One great example of a Super Dad. The little ones can’t quite climb up the big steps of the jungle gym so Bret and Chris took turns climbing half way up helping each one as they came. It was pretty amusing, watching a big dude climb up and wedge himself between two steps then pushing one kid up while pulling another up from the floor. Between the 7 of them it was never ending!
With a Super Dad you’ll see a Super Mom who climbs up the slide to photograph her babies coming down it! Love Kylee’s half “wee!” half terrified look on her face and check out that left hand spread wide open!!
Last but not least, I had to throw in one of the “bloopers” from the picture I was trying for for the last post. Bret and I lined them up against the fence, wanted them to stand closer together so said something along the lines of “touch your shoulders”. Slightly confused, they did exactly what we asked!!!
