It's about time

Joseph and Jenna went to the pediatrician for their 3 year and 6 month well visits. This trip to the doctor went much better than our last visit. Bethany got to stay at Mamma's house. She had Mamma all to herself. That doesn't happen too often theses days.
Before the doctor came in Joseph told me, "I want to go home Mommy. I'm bery scared." I asked him why he was scared and he said, "Because, Dr. Nicwee is bery scary too me." He was bery brave and only whimpered a little when the nurse pricked his finger. He is the 50% for height and the 90% for weight. Very healthy.
Jenna was all smiles. She showed off the entire time. She got 3 shots. Joseph wanted to know if she was going to be okay. She weighed 14lbs oz and is 25 inches long. She is in the 50% for height and 25% for weight. Found all this very strange because I have always been the mom with the biggest babies. It always made me sad in a way that my babies never stayed small. Jenna weighed 9lbs. 6oz at birth, she started out that way. At 6 months, Bethany weighed 16lbs 13 3/4 oz, and Joseph weighed 17lbs 5oz.
Knowing that Jenna is perfectly healthy, it is really cool to finally have a little baby! Trust me, I know this all sounds really silly, but it makes me happy!!!

We passed the hospital and Joseph said, "Dare's the hospital." Bethany said, "Yeah, that's where we had Jenna!"

A lady asked Joseph if he liked Thomas when she saw he was wearing a Thomas hat. He said, "Yeah, I wike Thomas. And James." She laughed and was walking away when he said, "And Henry, and Percy, and Gordon."

That's my little pike kiddos! I miss 'em! this whole working think has its pros and cons. Never seeing your nieces and nephew is the con.

I have the oppposite problem as you. Hayden is only in the 30% for height and 25% for weight or vis versa. (i cant remember) But anyway everytime he goes for a well check I freak out because he is so small and does not like to eat or drink milk. I am having to constantly try to force him to eat. he is soo picky. I wish I had a big baby that liked to eat without meal times being such a struggle!
