Best. Paediatrician Appointment. Ever.

The boys had an appointment with their paediatrician this morning. And I was dreading it. Although their pedi is very thorough, he is slightly over-concerned and this drives me a little bit crazy. There have been times where their appointments have taken up to 2 hours!

Here is a recap of their appointments (boys are now 29 months old):
  • Daniel completely cooperated and for the first time was weighed on the adult scale and stood for his height (instead of lying down for his length).
  • Daniel now weighs 26 lbs! And is 89 cm's tall. 26 lbs is just amazing for Daniel. He jumped from the 3rd to the 10th percentile in weight! The pedi has always been concerned about his weight but he was thrilled with him today.
  • Ben was a rockstar and "walked" in on his own in his walker. The pedi had never seen him in his walker and was totally impressed.
  • Both boys were total superstars and cooperative during their examinations.
  • Ben now weighs 28.6 lbs and is 89 cm's long. Needless to say, Ben is still weighed on the baby scale and lays down for a length measurement.
  • I talked to the pedi about Ben doing hippotherapy starting in May and Ben's potential allergy to horses. We now have a plan to deal with this so hopefully it'll all be fine.

I think those are the main highlights of the trip. I was so proud of my boys!


  1. Awesome! So glad to hear that. :)

  2. Great appointment. Charlie still lies down for his length, but one day. . .

    Great news all teh way around. I've heard GREAT things about Hippotherapy.

  3. Can't remember if I've ever commented before but wanted to say hi! Your boys are so adorable and I love how they seem to have such a great bond.

    I also have twin boys (one with autism). It is always an adventure. Glad the appointment went so well.

  4. Great! Walking in with his walker! That is such a great thing and I am sure he was a rockstar when he did!

  5. Fantastic news! It's nice when things go easier than we expect.

  6. yay for good appts. my twins just had their 30 month well baby, too. drake is also 28.5 lbs and is 36 inches. i am so happy he is still in the 25 - 50 for weight as he burns so many calories with his inefficient movements. good things he eats like a horse. lucy is only 22 lbs (3rd%!) and 34 inches. she is a tiny little thing.
