Stats, shots, screaming and vomit...and finally sleep

The boys had their 18-month well visits and shots today (albeit a few months late since they're almost 20 months old). Here are the current stats:

22 lbs even - woo hoo! Another 1/2 pound in just 2.5 weeks!
85.5 cms tall (33.6 inches)
49.5 cm head circumference (19.5 inches)

Per the growth charts, that puts him in the 50 - 75th percentile in height, 5th percentile in weight and 75 - 90th percentile in head size.

23 lbs 14 oz
82.5 cms tall (32.5 inches)
51.5 cm head circumference (20.3 inches)

Per the growth charts, that puts Ben in the 25 -50th in height, 10 to 25th in weight, and above the 95th for head size.

So overall, my boys are fairly skinny, average height with huge heads!

After checking all their stats and asking the typical developmental questions, it was time for the shots. Three each. Yucky, yucky, yucky. They were already all worked up from the checkup part and now they were going to get 3 jabs in the leg.

So I held them down while they screamed and they got their shots. Ben even vomited. Luckily they had only just eaten and it just smelled and looked like banana. Poor guy. I felt so bad for him. I'm so glad they don't remember stuff from this age...I would hate for them to remember mommy holding them down while the dr. gave them needles.

We finally got to go home and they both fell asleep in the car. No biggie for Daniel who falls asleep often but a very big deal for Ben who never, ever falls asleep in the car...especially not on short drives around town.

Needless to say, I'm glad that's over with.
