Check Up

Another reason we headed to Texas is to have a pediatrician appointment for both of the kids as a check up/make sure nothing serious is going on with a trusted doctor that we know. I don't suggest doing two kids well child check ups at the same time for the sake of your sanity and the staffs sanity but I didn't have a choice and thankfully everyone was very helpful, patient and it all worked out.

Here are the stats.....
Height: 38 3/4" (73%)
Weight: 32 lbs 8 oz (57%)
*at 3 years 3 months

She was full of questions that day and was asking the doctor about everything and anything. She even asked him how he became a doctor, where he went to school, where was his school, where does he live....and on and on and on! So...there is no real concern on her language development and he didn't have any real concerns developmentally. He did observe that her hair was not healthy looking and her skin a little pale and suggested a multi vitamin rich in Omegas and adding more fatty acids to her diet considering she rarely eats fish, she doesn't like the milk here in Saudi and since being here her diet has gotten worse. We started her on a daily vitamin rich in Omegas and already I see a difference in her hair.

Height: 31" (99%)
Weight: 25 lbs 5 oz (98%)
Head Circumference: 18 3/4" (98%)

So the doctor comes in and says, "I hope you like football...because you will be watching many games with this kid." Pretty much Graham is a big kid! He probably won't thin out and I should continue to expect him to be just a big baby! He is healthy, not overweight and doing great but is just a big boy! The doctor was very happy with his development, eating and sleeping habits and said he is a healthy and very happy boy (which I knew)! All he said was for me to remember that although he looks older and like he should be doing certain things that he isn't. He had some blood work done and it was all fine. He had some vaccinations and was a champ. Such a sweet and happy boy!
