Health Updates

Yesterday Emma had her 4 year doctor appointment and Reagan had her 18 month appointment. Emma had to get 4 shots and Reagan had to get 1. Emma tried to be brave because as she said "I am 4 years old so shots don't hurt me anymore." Dave held her on his lap while she got 2 shots in each arm. He covered her eyes so she couldn't watch the needles going in. However, she still did cry but only for a minute or so. Then she was able to get a prize and a sticker. I held Reagan while she got her one shot and she cried a lot longer than Emma. However, Emma complained of her arms hurting for a couple hours after and Reagan seemed to recover quickly. The doctor recommended that we have Emma see a Speech Pathologist and call the Elementary School to set up an appointment. They also said they could recommend a preschool, possibly one that would help her with her speech before she starts Kindergarten. Anyway here are their stats:

Emma
Height: 39 1/2 inches (50%)
Weight: 35 lb. (50%)

Reagan
Height: 31 inches (50%)
Weight: 20 lb. 2 oz. (5%)
Head is in the 95% range. I don't know exact measurement because the papers are in the car.

The exciting thing is that now Reagan can sit in a forward facing carseat. We need to go and buy one this weekend. I think it's about time. Here is a cute picture of my 2 girls.

They're just so cute! I had to laugh about skinny little Reagan just barely hitting 20 lbs. That'll probably be Georgia too (the teeny little thing is still in size 2 diapers at 10.5 months:P). BTW-they both have the prettiest eyes.

I am glad Aiden isn't the only one in the 5th percentile for weight. I hate shots. Rotten Doctors.

Poor girls!! Emma must have been devastated when she realized that shots still hurt despite the fact that she is four. Beautiful girls!!

Once again I can't say how much Reagan looks like you. Does your mom have flash backs everytime she looks at her? Your girls are so cute and have the biggest and prettiest eyes too.
